100+ Reading Challenge

I'm getting there slowly....very slowly!

The lovely Car (it is her birthday this week, pop by and say hello!) sent me this book that I won from her blog. Thanks Car!

Somehow my calculations are all out of whack... this is terrible..I'm so mad at myself!! So after wondering how the hell I'm going to fixed it and deciding that I can't...and with no fabric left to make another block I decided to make Possum a little pillow to go with her quilt when Becky gets all the blocks back.
