I think this weekly thing is going to be much more doable for me - I have the freedom of more time to complete my assignment as well as more surface area to work with - twelve times more.
I've noticed after two 6"x 6" pieces that my image choices and scale are very different in the bigger size. Next week I am going to try to replicate the proportion from some 1.5" squares and see what happens.
The folks in the photo are the Gareys: Baby Tony, Bob, Kay, Carol (my mother-in-law) Cooky, and Mickey. Bob and Kay's thriftiness is the stuff of legend.
