While the kids were snowed in last week, my oldest daughter decided to play dress up with Sonja and she found a Mickey costume, Sonja chased her around the house and loved it!

On the star blocks I did a curve to kind of look like their logo, otherwise I did a “manly” circuit board grid on the background- inspired by Leah Day

Your Bible block is great and I'm glad that Sonja is learning all about bargain shopping already.

I really like the little bible block. You have been busy sewing. I am doing the Sew Kitschy blocks too.

I can't imagine making a 3" block, but "Hagar" is lovely!
