A Tale of 2 Coins...

All things Quilty are going pretty slowly around here of late. What with the half term holidays and trying to keep the boys occupied...
here's the result of a bit of geocaching...

Lucas found a trackable coin! It's been around Germany, over to the USA where it went to Minnesota and New York State and then over here to the UK. We have dutifully moved it on, although only by about 10 miles!

And partying....

The car boot sale was disappointing and only yielded some ribbons and pearl cotton this week...

But there was time to squeeze in one more Super Mario block in the form of a coin...

This brings my total to 7/14 now, so halfway there with the damn 1.5" strips and squares! Woo Hoo!

Looking at the blocks laid out like this I realise I need to make blocks in other colours! The next block, a power up flower, will introduce orange and green to the colour mix, following that are Mushroom and Luigi blocks which will add even more green... but I need 7 more blocks so will need to get researching and drawing! 
 
I'll be linking up with the usual parties;

Awesome!! My son would love this. We made those... only out of Perler beads. Haha. I bet the same pixellation method works.
