January 2nd I spent with a couple of my friends at my favourite scrapbooking store, we were supposed to be scrapbooking together but I spent most of the day looking up crochet patterns on my computer! I received my last christmas present and just felt a lot of love. Red was the perfect colour for the day, representing love and Christmas.
January 3rd I went to an afternoon matinee with a girlfriend. We went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It was a movie with a lot of dream sequences and imagination in it. I was enjoying my last few days of holidays, it was a calm and relaxing kind of day so the green really appealed to me.
I like the way they are looking joined together. I wanted to have solid squares, not traditional grannies with so many holes in them. I already have a couple of afghans like that. I couldn't do the join as you go method I had been learning because there isn't any spaces between my stitches. I am single crocheting them together. This means there will be a front and a back to my blanket. The back will just show a little seam overlap, nothing too major.
On January 4th I had a nice family day. I took my puppy to playgroup, we watched the Canadian world jrs game and we played cards together. I made a chicken stir fry for dinner, filled with celery and nice orange carrots and peppers. So my happy colour for the day is orange.
I am really enjoying this project, and I think about it ALL the time! I love seeing everybody else's projects on the Facebook page and on their blogs.
