Got a good night's sleep (think we all slept in) and this morning I hope to make a serious dent in the rest of the blocks because after lunch we'll need to pack up and head home.

By the time we left for dinner last night (at the Beaver Street Brewery) I was done sewing for the night. I only had 30 blocks done because of a mini-crisis right before lunch. In a hurry to finish up a block I ran into a pin at the very end of the last seam, bending the needle and mangling the pin. Then I lost track of how many times I unscrewed the plate (naturally one of those screws is really hard to get to even with the short little tool), 'fixed' what I thought was the problem, then screwed everything back together only to discover I still had a problem. Eventually (with Cindy's help) I got going again, though it took well over an hour, and at one point I was worried I might be done sewing for the weekend.
