Another Update

Here is another update on my quilting bee project - square #2 is finished...... I decided to use my name and the year under the little ladies..... they were fun to stitch..... they looked a little lost, so I added a small smile for each of them.....

I think I will work on the quilt next for a while..... hope you are all enjoying this project as much as I.....

Happy stitching -- hugs, Claire <3
