This week's homework is to make your own little Hankie Block following Karen Goeggler's instructions in Episode 1405. As we're making 8" finished blocks for this year-long project, be sure that when you go to the copy center that the line labeled 8" prints out at exactly 8".

We want to see your work, and as an incentive, we're offering you the chance to win one of FOUR Super Goodie bags (filled with lots of studio-audience giveaways) just for posting your work in Show and Tell by March 23. Winners will be announced in the Newsletter and Daily Blog on March 25.
