Here's what I worked on. . .
Winston is one of the three wild dogs that I buttonhole stitched around the edges. He has some eyes and other small details that will be added once I get the top together and quilted. I've now finished all the appliquéing and I'm ready to sash them. I bought fabric to do that but need to figure out if I have everything I need to finish the top.
I didn't put much on my weekly goals because I knew I would be spending most of my time preparing and packing projects for the retreat.
