Week 2 of 2013

Is it just me, or did this past week go by really really quickly?

I was astounded when all of a suddend I found it to be Friday last week (happy, but a wee bit surprised)

All in all, it wasn’t a bad week, I think.

I don’t remember a whole lot about the week actually, I know I didn’t make a lot of progress on my crochet and then having to start working squares together this weekend, my interest level drop quite a bit – something I have to work through – I think I’m just at a point where it feels like the pattern either won’t work out or that it will be way too much effort in the end (those dreaded edges! I’m glad I’m not alone in that)

Hubby and I had a lot of fun playing borderlands – we’re almost done with the campaign after which we might do a second play-through.

Habit/goal-wise the week went well as you can see below:

I did end up adding two more goals,things that I think will improve life a bit and isn’t too much effort to end up  making it too much too soon.

I also bought this really cool mouse-pad planner on Friday – you can plan your whole week on it! It’s mostly for work, so not much exiting will go on it – I just love various forms of stationary.

Not a great photo unfortunately

(not sure why the photo is sidey-ways, but oh well)

I’m not sure what I want to accomplish this week, but I am starting to think more and more that it is time to be more intentional about life – setting goals for each week and accomplish them, not just floating through life and being.

Anyone have anything interesting planned for the week?

Oh – I almost forgot! Today marks the 5 year anniversary of me starting my current job and more importantly, meeting hubby. wow

WIP Wednesday

I am borrowing this idea from  stiches, scraps and sparkles in the sun and by some luck can combine it with the new stashbuster challenge from Linda’s crafty corner

It just so happens that my current WIP uses up some of my stash – it is awesome to be able to use “existing” yarn for something like a present. I have to admit that most of the time it is more exciting to do projects that require me buying new yarn or yarn other than acrylic, but I suppose that the “newness” in this project is that I’m not following any pattern, but making it up as I go.

This is how far I am at the moment:

Baby blanket

I’m going to add these blocks around the border:

And then do the granny rows in the opposite colour sequence from previously. Then depending on the size of the blanket, I might do a granny edge that alternates between the two smaller squares.

I do have 2 or 3 other WIPs as well, but unfortunately no photos at the moment (and I haven’t really touched them for a while), so I guess I’ll only post them if I actually do work on them.
