Glad you have a working computer now! :nod

Got a good start over the weekend (didn't do much anything else, aside from church) while I had natural light. A lot of stitches were done in 939, so that helped! There's actually a little bit more done...turns out the camera didn't catch the few stitches on the right edge :P

I was SO excited! Did the last few stitches and then it got measured. Left to right, one stitch short. No big deal, easy to fix! Top to bottom...over 1/2 an inch off! :confused: :cry:

Can't figure out how this happened....scratch that. Just measured...it's not 16 count...it's 16 count wide, 18 count deep :banghead:

Needless to say, this block won't be sent in. :cray:

Whoa, you mean the actual fabric is off? That is such a shame, because it's a lovely image :(

Thanks! It is! One direction, it's 16 count...the other direction, 18 count. Killer thing is, when I ordered it, they were out of the smaller pieces, so I got a larger roll and was planning on getting at least 3 blocks out of it. SO not going to use the rest of this aida for blocks!

On a good note...I measured my Toy Blast block (nowhere close to being done)...and it's the right size! :)

That's unfortunate! But hey, you get to keep your pretty stitching, right? Silver linings and all that :D

Totally! It will be nice to have it up on my wall...oddly enough, I don't have any of my stitching up :shock:

Hope to get them in the mail later this month!

And yes, already thinking of new block ideas...someone's been noticing a lot of mushrooms in non-Mario games :P

Hey everyone!

I am sorry I kind of disappeared. I have been super busy. I wanted to let you know I received squares from Awenmir and Firehawke. I need squares BY August 1 from everyone so please make sure you get them finished up and in the mail!

If you mailed it to the Maryland address in the past 2 weeks I have not been there so have not seen them.

Haha, so not funny, but I actually procrastinated too long. I've only got about 20% of my square done and for some reason I thought they were due no later than September 1st. I tried to push myself to get it done but my hands simply can't handle that much stitching in such a short time period anymore. Apologies! It will have to be for next year.
