It was bound to happen.  I came home from work to find Tanya sewing.  OK she was not actually sewing, when I came home more like crying.  Tanya made us a burp cloth.  She sewed the outside edge flipped it inside out and then was going to put a decorative trim around it.
 She set the machine to the decorative stitch hit the peddle and SNAP! She broke a needle.  Not to be set back, she quickly swapped the needle and SNAP!  This is of course where I come in with her crying.  Last night when sewing I put my 1/4 inch foot on.  She not even knowing what that thing is.  She did not know that if she did a stitch that the needle moved back and forth would have to put the normal foot back in.

Needless to say I came to the rescue, such a good husband I am (yes I am sucking up for every ones love) and swapped her foot and helped her sew.
 We are now the proud owner of a burp cloth with a pretty little edge around it.
 I tried to convince my wife that I could slap one of my cool labels on it and she explained to me that I don't need it thrown up on so no label.
 Not to be totally out done I did get some brown granny squares in and some 5 X 5 blocks done.

If you look close though at the top right block on the bottom left corner I messed up the out side edge making one of my lighter tans end up on the out side edge.  Oh well.  I do have 4 more piles of squares to sew up tonight so once I get done posting this off to work I go.
