How do Tuesdays continue to sneak up on me so quickly? I mean, Mondays always sneak up too quickly, so I suppose it makes sense with Tuesday to follow ;-)
Things making me happy this week:
1. Fun adventures on the weekend with Jonathan. On Sunday night we both found ourselves reflecting on how enjoyable these "quick" trips can be, and we treasure these memories just as much as the bigger vacations. I owe you all a post with pictures from our weekend trip to Buffalo, which extended into a day trip to the US side of Niagara Falls for my first time in, at least, 2 decades. I'll try to post pictures before this weekend's "adventures" begin!
2. New crochet projects. I know right? Like I need to start something new...
Anyway, I came across this Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 while catching up on some blogs earlier, and as I dug a little deeper, it seems there are thousands who have joined in!! I've read about and looked at photos for inspirations here, and here, and here, and here, and here. I'm still toying around with what design I want to use. Right now I like this and this, but my "research" hasn't been too extensive just yet. I'm always looking at so many gorgeous square patterns and never know just what to do with them; finally a fun opportunity to use one!! I, of course, need to pick one that's going to be easy to pick up every night and make a square with. I don't foresee myself being able to get a good start on this until this weekend as I'll need to brainstorm a bit on colors and dig through the old stash. I also need to do some math on the final blanket size to see how much "catch up" I have to do (how is it already the middle of January!!?!)
As always, so little time for so many crafty ideas!
