PhotoHunt & Quilt Block

I had every intention of sharing this post with you last night but by the time I wanted to put down my stitching I was just too tired to face the keyboard.  So here is my Saturday PhotoHunt a day late.

This week's theme is "Broken"


I took this picture this past February during my Dominican Experince trip.  I came across these boys in the slum of Simon Bollivar in Santo Domingo, they were trying to fix a broken toy.  People become quite resourceful when they have little.  I just love the happy smiles they gave me as I took their picture.


I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning Friday night so I had this Quilt Block Happy Dance late Friday/early Saturday depending on how you look at it.  This is Quilt Block #10 for me.


I've got a good start on the next one as you can see, but I've run out of two floss colours I need to complete it.  I'm being lazy and not going out today.  I think Tracey is doing me a favour and picking them up for me.  Of course I can keep working with other colours on this block and the next one for now.

Great pic, their smiles are lovely.

Why is it we always run out of just the colour we need when we plan a stay at home day??

I can't help but notice that even though the toy is broken, their smiles are huge!
