Currently reading::::


I went from being ahead on my Goodreads Challenge to being 2 books behind schedule!  I just haven't had time to read.  I really should start setting aside 30 minutes before bedtime to read like I used to.  Lately, I've just been going straight to bed.

This book was given to me by a friend who really enjoyed it.  I love the premise of the book so hopefully, I'll get to read some this week.

What I am creating at the moment::::

This is the Moogly 2018 Block #2 called Gretchen Afghan Square by July Yeager.

I think this is the first Julie Yeager pattern I've made.  I really enjoyed making this square.  The pattern was great to read and I love how it turned out.
