June Muggamo

It's here! June's Muggamo pattern!




Yes, it's very late, but better late than never? In the midst of plan for my son's graduation open house I realized I hadn't posted the pattern. That was June 6th, already late, and decided I had too much going on to fit it in without adding stress. So here we are, half way through the month. Whoops!
