Firstly I finished off a dog jacket to give to the 'Animal Angels Refuge'. I had planned to try to complete 3 of them but 8.30 arrived rather quickly. That meant I wanted to be in the lounge-room then so that I could watch an episode of 'Silent Witness' on TV :-). My sewing room (aka 3rd bedroom) is the furtherest room from the television.

So from 8.30 I moved on to a project that could be done in front of the TV. I tacked all the 'intersections' of some of the donated squares that I picked up last Tuesday and brought home to sew into blankets. I sew a few stitches at each end of the squares to join them, and continued until I had a column of 6 joined squares. Then I joined the columns; again just a few stitches at the intersections.

|The 4 rows by 6 isn't quite big enough so I will add another strip of 6 squares|
