Granny Square Love - One A Day


A week has passed already, and I have been doing a little bit of my granny square project as I promised. I am glad I joined this group for this project as it is turning out to be a bigger task than I had anticipated it to be, so my one a day gives me the motivation to do a little bit each day.....whether its a small square or two, I do the amount of crocheting I can do with it each day.


It is fairly growing though, at the moment it has 5 big squares and 14 small ones....and I am aiming for 12 big squares now, although not sure how many small squares that is.


This big square has got to be my favourite ^_^ of course it is, it is very rainbow colour!

Oh I have to show you guys this..I met up with one of my friends on Sunday, who is also quite crafty, and she has made me a little something.


An origami bouquet which she made by herself, it is so beautiful and I was touched that she made this for me. I love that she can pretty much make her flowers in any colour, as you know the wide array of colour paper that is available. I think she is addicted to buying paper as much as I am addicted to buying wool!! I have considered using an origami bouquet for my wedding in 2013 as it is very unique feeling and you wouldn't need to worry about flowers etc.

She doesn't have a blogger, so the best place you can check her stuff is at her folksy where she selling her origami work.

For those crafters that would like to take part in the One A Day activity, the best place to find information is at Ravelry or Gingerbread Girl's blog .

Happy One A Day to all the crafters :)
