When I began this blog at the beginning of the year, I had three objectives: (1) to try to encourage myself to finish one of my big UFO's ("UnFinished Object"), and (2) to make my way through the 200 Blocks featured in Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks for blanket, throws and afghans, and (3) to post every single day.
Well, it must be day 100 of the year, because here I am, 100 posts strong, and not a day missed! I'm real pleased that I've managed to keep it up, even when it's been 2am, I've just gotten home from a wedding, and I realise that I've not posted up something for 'the day', something goes up :)
I feel like I need to work harder on the 200 Crochet Blocks, since I think I am only around 30 through the 200 and we're coming up to 1/3 of the way through the year. I would like to get to the half way mark by the end of June, which is another 50-or-so days away, so I must get going on those! Actually, looking at those figures I don't believe I'll make it to 100 blocks done by the middle of the year, but I shall give it a good go :)
And I need to get going on stitching together my blanket. Working on that every day is hard to put up on the blog, since there's not a new square to post up, but just progress on the blanket, some of which is small and hard to demonstrate.
The weather has finally turned here in Central Victoria, and we've had a few days of real cool weather. Autumn started right on time at the beginning of March, but we had a recall of summer for the last two-three weeks, with even a 30C day last Friday. Which is just Not On! I love my cold weather, and bundling up in my scarves, hats, gloves & coats. And of course, with the colder weather brings the desire to crochet on! I've got some LOVELY deluxe wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mills to work up a new hat in. I'm thinking a cute little bonnet :) It's a gorgeous dark red, and I can just picture it in a beret! And I've been so enjoying the second-Cotton yarns that I picked up in the store. Most of my recent blocks have featured the cotton, and it's so gorgeous to work in.
Thank you for visiting over the past 100 days, and I hope that you continue to come along!
