A short video on a square in a square

There are 29 people signed up for BOM.  Judy started a group call Judy’s BOM club on facebook so the people can post pictures and show what they have done so far.  Lots brought their blocks to show how they are doing. I am so thrilled to see that they are being creative with this project. Some are changing things up a little bit.

Judy challenged everyone to make a pincushion using something recycled. Bring it to guild in March in a bag and we will draw names.  Everyone who brings one will take home one. Pictures were shown of ideas.
