Granny Squares Update

I've been busy over the New Year weekend.  Since most of my time at the quilt along at church is spent helping my friends, I spent some time on my handcrank making great granny squares.
 I got 13 made, I have 7 to go!

 I ran out of green for my corners, and the edges of one block, so we have to make a trip to Joann's on Saturday!
 Do not trim when you have a sinus headache!  Do you think if I put some stitch witchery on the back of the cut it will be okay since it is on the edge?
I just love sewing on my handcrank, it is so rhythmic!  My husband laughs at me when he walks past saying that I "am just so cute cranking away on my sewing machine".  I love the waters "Hint", it is my special treat because they are kind of expensive.
 I just have to guide it with my left hand while my right hand cranks.  I have blue carpet tape marking my 1/4 inch seam allowance.  Since it was converted from an electric, I do have a reverse stitch.
I would love to have an original hand crank, my hand crank parts came from China!  LOL
What have you been up to lately?
