Progress on SKOW


Friday night I cut more 1.5" squares for my SKOW - it seemed that I cut oodles of them.
Saturday (today) - I sewed oodles of 1.5" squares -t I still have oodles left!

But I have the sets of little squares joined to their big blocks and most of the rows put together.
I still have the sewing block to finish off - though its 2/3rd done and the joining strips to do.
I am going to take off the last strip - after row 2 and use it up the other way in another place. I just can't live with the 2 pink stripes where they are now and its only sewn on one side so no biggie to 'reverse sew 61.5 inches'!!!  And I might re-arrange the order of some of the blocks.


This photo is missing the butterflies but just use your imagination!


I had to put a dog in because we have a cat and a dog and I wanted to be fair.
The "chair" didn't really do it for me - so I did a Christmas tree.

Sorry Chookyblue that I am not following the timetable - but I hope to be back on track very soon.

Cheers, everyone!
