23 more to go!


I just finished row two of the 39 squares.
I really love how this part looks together...I went back to square two and added the white french knots around the flower. It was looking rather washed out and needed a little more oomph. Just a little.

We are nearly 100 strong...and more are added every day. It's not too late to jump in. And I'm already thinking of a project to follow this one!

Today is a very, very nice day so we will indeed venture into town to catch the circus parade. I'll bring my camera.

Oh I agree! I am just catching up today... It is great fun!
I made mine 5 x 10 and I goofed! I did not follow directions! I like your version 8 x 6 :) Oh well :)

There is a very old Disney movie about a boy going off to join the circus.. it may be called "Toby Tyler" ? Have a great time!

With Kindness,
Mary
