It'sa me! MARIO!!

Yep, at last Mario himself graces my sampler.
Managed to get some work done on it this evening, so thought I'd get a quick snap of it to show you my progress.
It's not as wonky as it looks, just the way I drag it about on the frame. (BLUSH).
So I just have the plant on Mario's side to do, the mushroom box above him, the coin on his side, bullet bill, the stars eyes and some more to do on the base of the design, under the black line.

Actually, I'd been feeling like there wasn't that much left to do before I wrote it all down. Now I'm writing it, it seems like LOADS still! 

I'm supposed to be going out cooker shopping tomorrow.  Ours still sits in disgrace in the kitchen with it's condemned label attached.
I really don't want to spend the money though, so I'm not looking forward to going. I just want to wave a magic wand over this one and make it ok again. 
I don't know whether to keep with gas or take a chance and  try an electric this time.
I suppose alot will depend on price. Oh I wish I didn't have to go.
Anyone want to go for me?



  1. I'll go with you Kim! Then afterwards, we can be bad girls and pass by a cross stitch store :-D

  2. Oh what a great idea!
    It would have to be that store near you though as I'd LOVE to get lost in there for a day or two.



Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
