Finally finished my square! Yay!
Actually, the last couple weeks have been really harrowing. I live in this tiny little town in Arkansas and there are only two shops in town that sell DMC(stupid Hancock's only carries Sullivans), Walmart and a little mom&pop place. Anyways, I bought half of my thread at the smaller shop where it was cheaper, but they didn't carry all the colours I needed so had to buy the rest at Walmart. Partway through the project, I noticed that I had misread my list and I was missing four colours and also that I had underestimated the amount of black I needed(this was my first time doing a pattern that wasn't a kit, simple mistake.) So I went back to Walmart for the colours, and they didn't carry the ones I was missing, and they were out of black. One of the shop girls said they would get some in a couple days, but I went to the mom&pop place so I wouldn't have to worry about it. But they didn't have the missing colours either. Even more frustrating was that someone had bought all of their black also. Turns out some lady is doing this huge project for the county fair and has bought out all the black DMC in town. But the owner of the shop promised to order me some new thread so I didn't worry too much about it then.
Anyways, a couple weeks later I checked the both shops again. The little shop hadn't received the colours yet, and walmart had apparently got them and had been bought out AGAIN. It was becoming apparent that I wasn't getting my thread in time. Then my sister and I started this massive hunt through all our local friends for the colours I needed. Finally, we had to send my brother-in-law to the Hobby-Lobby in Little Rock to find all the colours! Luckily, he's a pretty smart boy because he double checked all the colours before leaving and discovered that he had one of them wrong. The next day, my stepmother called to let me know that my skirt that she made me was in the mail and that she had packed in some black DMC and posted it all priority so I could finish my project in time! (And then I had to pretend like I didn't already have all the required thread in my hands... lol)

Anyways, here's a photo:

Thanks to BHM and Linkismyhomeboy for the pattern.

I can't wait for next year's quilt, this was too much fun!

For those of you who are paying attention, don't worry about the time frames on shipping. I planned everything around my aunt visiting from Canada. Tomorrow, my quilt block will be transferred to her safe keeping and she will whisk it across the boarder to Canada, thus by-passing the customs line. And I'm giving it to her instead of Uncle so that it will be mailed swiftly! As for the camo'd text, I'm way too giddy over finishing the square!

drdenman, your square looks great--no lie c; So glad you got it done despite the complications.
I finally finished my square from Portal 2 and I also have bmh to thank for all her help, as well as tnitnetny and La Ptite Bete. Thanks so much, everyone. I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone's beautiful squares on the site, and I'm so glad I was finally able to participate this year. c: Hopefully it gets to tnitnetny okay.

Your Wheatley square looks great, Shrinkingviolet !!
I wish Tritnetny gets it soon ! :clapping:
You seem to be a huge Portal fan (You've got the Companion Cube, the cake, the Wheatley portrait... and, wait... the complete Chell costume ??) :shock:

I thought I posted the squares I got while at my parents in Md but I may not have. Received the square from Laurel and the two squares from Jade.

When I got home to Canada yesterday two squares were waiting for me, the one from IzzyXIII and Shrinkingviolet.
