Some Crafting...



I'm feeling poorly today.. Our youngest daughter Xanthe had a gastro bug on Thursday... Eamonn and I came down with it on Friday night.  I've literally been asleep ever since... I slept approximately 36 hours straight, only making it out of bed today for a few hours as I knew I needed to rehydrate and start to try to get on with it.

Whilst I was looking after Xanthe on Thursday I was sitting next to her on the couch, crochet hook in hand very very busy.  I left my scissors in my jeans pocket and this is the end result after they had been through the washing machine :(  Ooops.


I found the group *one a day* on Ravelry - search for it - its easy to find.  The ideal behind it is that you create one motif or do a set number of rows every day to put towards a bigger project...  Do you remember this motif that I shared with you earlier in the year? 

 Well this is going to be my one a day project... as I had only ever completed 5.5 squares....

I decided to join the 4 squares and edge them in blue....

 and then join the bigger squares together..

I'm loving the way that this is looking...

I am pleased that I achieved more than my "one a day" on Thursday as I could never have predicted that I would get ill and not be able to summon the energy to raise a hook.

Stay tuned for progress reports.
