Well, having signed up for Ravelry's blog-a-long year of projects just a few days ago, this is my first post about my progress (if I had thought about it more carefully I could have joined on a saturday and given myself even less time to complete very little!) Anyway, progress is progress, even if it is just becoming better organised and more 'workish'!
On my 'Year of projects' page I have listed a number of things I want to do in a year (up until June 30th) this included to make some realistic birds........well I soon dropped the realistic and just stuck with birds!
I know what you are thinking, that robin looks mighty fat, he hasn't ruffed up his feathers because he is cold.....no the facts of the matter are, that I actually made another bird too, but he ate it.........who would have thunk it eh?!
After enjoying my new feathered friends for a day, I decided it was somewhat cruel to keep them captive, so this morning I went out side and released them, after some emotional goodbyes they were gone, sad and even now I'm finding it hard to contain myself, but I know it was better for them to be in their natural environment. Maybe in years to come they will come back and visit us again.
On a lighter note, a couple of days ago I ordered the yarn to make my granny stripe, I have such a burning desire to own one that I could not control the urge any longer. Hopefully it will be here at the beginning of the week.
So here it is, back out of the bottom of my project bag, the boring blanket. I have done about 10 hexagons. Not much I agree, but it all makes a difference, and is certainly more than the none I have done for the past three months.
I know it will be lovely when it is finished, but in the meantime it is so......<yawn>.......boring
So there we are, progress I think, although maybe not on a monumental scale. Not sure what I will do next week........crochet eh.........it's a fly by the seat of your pants sort of hobby isn't it ;-)
Until next time, enjoy your Sundays.............
