If you recall way way way back at the start of the year I said I was going to check 52 things off my Bucket List this year. At some point a little later in the year I decided that 52 things wasn’t going to happen and so I was just going to aim for a “bunch”.
Well now, with only a couple of weeks left in the year, I have a few things that I’ve completed, but haven’t blogged about yet. So expect a few Bucket List posts in the next week or so.

Having mastered that particular skill though, I might stick with written patterns.
