Bucket List Bonanza – Crochet Diagram

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”.

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