Thanks for letting me know about the link.

I'm not a big fan of the sort of open latticework that joins the squares, but I could always joins the squares another way ... Also, must try it in Christmas colors or red, white, and blue! Or fall colors for Halloween ... Thanks again for sharing that!

P.S. The download link doesn't download a PDF, so I just printed it instead.

Hardly a moment to breathe, although I did sneak out and take a 10-minute walk just to clear my head. I was feeling very low all day, had something on my mind. Didn't feel better until Mr. got home. We watched a Hildegarde Withers mystery starring good old Edna May Oliver and James Gleason---"The Penguin Pool Murder." Gotta run for now ... we're getting rid of a computer station and chair to make room for a sofa that we're getting from MIL's downsizing, and I have to take a photo of them to send to my BIL to see if he wants to take them.
