You have completed section 13

This was the last section working 6 rounds in.  Each section from here on out will get a bit shorter to make up for the amount of time each round now takes.  


As always, please take a moment to stitch in all your ends and take a few pretty pictures.


Please remember this pattern is my original design and is protected by copyright.  It is and will be available only on my website.
