Had a wonderful weekend this week- the World Figure Skating Championships! The event is not covered by US TV unless you have a super high tier cable package in some markets (not ours) that carries Universal Sports, so I watched on Latvian and Russian TV. I learned the Lativan word for oops is ups, prounced "oops-ah".
URGH! Blogger just ate my recap of the skating. It was a great recap, but I'm not typing it again- check out icenetwork.com for more.
Even though I spent a lot of time watching TV, Saturday I DID quilt the Mario quilt! It took about 4-5 hours, I think. I just did a big stipple, not wanting to take away from the design, but needing to quilt this batting no more than 5 inches apart. I was worried it was going to be really hard, after reading the quilt-along blog, but after the first square it turned out it wasn't too bad at all.
blocks I did for the snowflake quilt, an early one. Looking at THIS block, I can see without a doubt, I'm getting better. White on white hides mistakes, and there are tons, but the circles are definitely more even.
