Fake News Is Killing Minds, Gaps

All 28 days of February are now sewn. Thought I might leave those gaps at the beginning and end, but I don’t like them.

I might add the last day of January and the first day of March.

Fake News Is Killing Minds, Almost Done

24 squares sewn. Only 4 left to do. Feels good.

Fake News Is Killing Minds

If you are new to this project, you can find an explanation here.

11 squares are now sewn, 17 still to do.

I decided to sew the patches to an old sketchbook cover. It was a mistake, and I won’t be doing the second piece in this way. My tough-skinned finger has bled a few times. However, I am reasonably pleased with the result, so will continue.

Storm Doris Is Coming And Fake News Is Killing Minds, 4

Below are days 13 to 16 of my February ‘news’ work, which I have explained in more detail here.

And yep, I’ve just noticed that 14 and 15 are pretty much the same thing. I’m undecided as to how I’m going to remedy this. Or not.

The first 4 days can be seen here, days 5 to 8 here, and days 9 to 12 here.
