Well, once again my crazy brain all full of thoughts and ideas decided I should try once again to finish my daughter’s granny square blanket by Christmas. I wanted to do this a couple years ago! I am embarrassed to say I have attempted this challenge quite a few times now. I always tend to take on this challenge when I have a lot going on too. That’s just my crazy brain I started this back in January of 2012…wow.
Check out here to see my first post about it.
I decided to get serious and kind of do the math to see how realistic it is to finish this bad boy by Christmas or her birthday in January. I first needed to decide the size, a throw or something for her bed. Well I am going big and doing the bed size. I want it to be something she can use forever. Then I did the math as far as how many rows I need and how many squares I have left to do. Figured out I need to make at least 3 squares a day. It’s actually not unreasonable! I do have to figure in sewing in ends (those dang ends) and adding a border.
So, will I get this done? Ha probably not. But am I going to try? Yep! I’m almost done with a whole row, which I’m pretty happy about. Now I just need to attach them
I spy a little hand sneaking in to steal a square
There he is… Little stinker
My little helper… or destroyer. Depending on how you look at it
In other news, I’m enjoying the fall weather… kind of. I am still missing summer but this fall weather isn’t so bad. I love a good cozy sweatshirt. I have become one of those oily hippy folks… aka I am using Essential Oils. So far I think they are really cool! I don’t use them for every little thing like some of the oily pros. I am mostly taking advantage of the oils for our immunity and for allergies. I am determined to keep the kids healthy this fall and winter!
Happy Wednesday everyone! What projects are you working on?
