Strigidae Bubo: the CAL

Welcome back to the newest installment of Bubo.  We aren't introducing anything new this week, so you should find it to be easy going.


This week is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States.  Everyone will be very busy with food and family.  It seems an easy week on Bubo is just the thing most people will need to relax and unwind at the end of the day. 


Bubo grows by seven rounds this week.

You have completed section 8

Next week we will be finishing off the square shape.  You will have crisp lines and the lovely double square look.  I wonder if you will see the wings spread in flight these last few rounds were intended to represent or something else.  


I've been seeing Bubo popping up on my Facebook newsfeed more and more often.  I get a little excited every single time I see him in his adorable little glory.  I try to comment on the pictures I see so I can watch your progress.


I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  Be safe.  Be happy.  Be where your heart feels at home... and don't forget to show off your Bubo to everyone whether they want to ooh and ahhh over it or not. 


As usual, please take the time to stitch in all your ends.
