Strigidae Bubo: the CAL

We have already made it to section 12!  Where did all the time go?  Six sections remain, but many may decide they have reached their perfect size with the completion of the faces.  


This week we will be working through the tricky area.  Chains will be your best friend and your worst enemy this week.  You may feel overwhelmed or even a bit lost at times this week.  Just take a deep breath and work one stitch at a time.


Bubo grows by 5 rounds this week.
