A New One A Day

Hello, that is me back with another One A Day project! Some of you will remember my last One A Day project...Miss Rainbow Blanket, which was a very spontaneous go with the flow project as I never knew what I was doing next with it.
The purpose of my new One A Day is to use up all of my colourful cheap wool stash, and I am going to crochet this project until every bit of this wool is gone!
If some of you are following me through instagram, you may already know what I have been up to he he. I have been making granny hexagons! I know, more granny crocheting! Aren't granny hexagons cute though?! To start with I am keeping similar colour groups together, and once I have many joined up then i may start joining the different colours together.
Blue hexagons
 Green hexagons
Yellow Hexagons
Pink, purple and red Hexagons

I started this project at the weekend and I have already completed 13 hexagons! I love how quick these are to make and join together. I am using the join as you go method, and it makes such a difference compared to individually making them and then sewing them or crocheting them all together afterwards!
Check out other's that are taking part at Gingerbread Girl's blog.

If you read my last post, you would have read that we found a stray kitten and that we were looking after her until we could find her owners, or a rescue for her to go to. Neither of these things happened, although one of our friend's did offer to take her if we became desperate.
Only we never became desperate about the situation, we became absolutely smitten with her and very attached. Andy called her Jess in the very early days of looking after her, while I kept calling her kitty. 

Could we say no to this little cute fluffball?
Absolutely not! 

At the weekend, Andy and I came to an almost silent mutual agreement that Jess is now part of our family. It's nice to have her company when Andy is out working, and vice versa.

Say hello to Jess!
You will probably see her popping up on my blog, instagram and facebook every now and then :D

    Have a wonderful day! Love, Barbina

  6. The new project looks great. Looks like Jess has made herself comfy, such a cutie :)

  7. Cute Granny hexis; I like that color grouping. My gosh your blanket is awesome! It's ginormous! I'm glad you kept her.

  8. Looking great and a perfect way to use up your yarn. Are you going to make it run over in various colors? I keep wanting to start granny hexies as I loved making African flower hexies. I have not had time to post my One a Day project so it will have to wait until tomorrow since it is dark now. :-)

    Jess is beautiful and I would have kept her too. Our cat is a very old man and we enjoy him each day he is still with us.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  9. yay for keeping the kitty! She's gorgeous! Now you can participate in caturday :D

    And LOVE the idea of making hexes with the left overs!!

  10. Hurray for Jess! She is so fluffy and cute. Now you can crochet cat projects too :-D. Can't wait to see the hexies come together, you know I love all things hexical.

  11. Hi Jess! Glad to see you have chosen yourself a lovely family. I am loving all those hexagons, especially the green ones! :-)

  12. I am so please you decided to keep her! Rescued cats are the best. We make up silly names for the cats that aren't ours to prevent us getting attached. Mr Fidget was the Crackwhore before he moved in with us, we had another stray who lived in our garden for five years that we called Crotchspider. In our new house we have the Retard Cat from across the road, and Optimistic Cat, who is the black and white cat that Fidget keeps beating up, but he keeps coming back and trying to be friends with him!

    It doesn't always work, though, as Crotchspider was very close to us and we treated him almost like he was family.

  13. I love seeing your progress on instagram and how Jess has become part of your family x
