Sorry for the lack of post yesterday--technical difficulties! And now I can't seem to get the photo of #14 to load properly. Two squares coming today to make up for yesterday--and be sure to take a look at all the additional photos I've placed with many of the squares.

Glad things have gotten fixed! Several of the ladies on my crochet group (yahoo) were getting worried about you! Have a great day and thanks for doing this CAL!
Hugs,

I used the additional time to finish up the rectangles and add borders to a couple of the other squares.
