Your bookmarks are great! I love Miyazaki, but the Bigfoot with the text is the cat’s pajamas.

Oh em goodness, that sheeeep! So adorable.

Did you ever work on a pattern called The Great American Afghan? My organizer found my three or four squares of it and was like, “Oh, this looks like a WIP.” I nervously laugh, uh sure. I only last worked on it twelve years ago :face_with_peeking_eye:

It is. I remember the giant bobbles being the hardest part.

@tendstowardschaos I aspire to have my scrap squares as organized as yours.

@plaidpineapple The colors on your quilt blocks are lovely! Can’t wait to see more.

@jellybean What a cute little sheep! I say this with great affection, but it looks like it is just crying out to be tossed.
