You have completed section 16

We have two more weeks together now.  Only six more rounds to go.  We have made it through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's together.  A lot of holidays and time when you stop to think about it.


Next week we will finish up the puff/feather section.  Your Bubo will then have a nice weight around the edges.


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