  12. Hey all! Really sorry for not being around of late. Got quite a few problems going down in the Skoggy household at the moment. Got some nice squarey eye candy to show you tomorrow. I got my choco squares out and took a pic (I haven't gotten round to sewing them together yet) and it takes up nearly all my kingsize bed. I love it! Big to everyone who sent me squares for it. Thought you'd like to see a pic of how big the Skoglets are now. Felicia is going to be 3 in July. Where did that time go!?!? Isabel is growing up so quickly. She is just over 1½ now but seems so much older. Hope everyone is well. x
  13. Hello and Welcome! I'm in the UK as well Whereabouts are you? I'm in Newcastle.
  14. Love the 3 headed dog! Reminds me of Fluffy from Harry Potter.
  15. Hey ladies! Sorry for not being around recently. Just popped in to say that I received some lovely squares from yarn_monkey today! They are sooooo nice! Thank you! Tomorrow I am getting all the choco squares laid out and will take a pic of them all! Can't wait to show you! x
