She has a bit of a disaster this month with her blocks - which I'm sure we can all relate with...She ended up sewing both of her finished blocks together, when she went to do the decorative stitching on them...she ended up sewing the two of them together :( not just once but 3 separate times...aww Shannon, what a pain but your blocks look great and they're finished on time!!

Beth  - just under the wire. Beth's an accountant and during tax season it's hard for her to find time for herself - but she did get her blocks finished, nice going Beth!!
