Mood Blanket 2014, Week 1

Hello Ladies,

Here is my first Post for the Mood Blanket 2014 challenge.
The idea is to make a square a day giving you 365 or a square
a week giving you 52 for a year.
It was started by a lady called Stacey who is on Instagram by the
name stacey_mummy. It has become huge and she even says that
she never realised how many would want to participate.
Hazel, from the blog hazels_crochet, is doing a weekly link up
to anyone who is interested.

So week 1 and I have done my first 7 squares. Yep, I'm going for the
big one, the whole 365. That's 358 to go.
I also have used the Join As You Go Method. I am very, very
Impressed, it's brilliant, not sure why I haven't used it before.
But now I won't have to sew them all together at the end.
Hopefully I'll also be able to use this for my Stashaholics, stash busting,
that's being set up by Linda of Linda's Crafty Corner.

Take care
Sally xxx

    1. The thing is, I think it's only going to be those 2 colours with the cream.
      I keep looking at others but I can't find anything else that I want to go with it.

  4. Looking good so far! And that's a good idea to join as you go - much simpler than the thought of all that sewing at the end. Looking forward to following your progress with this. Have fun!

  7. Lovely! Hmmm, the join as you go method... I don't know that one! Eeek! I'm impressed you are going for the whole 365!!! I'll look forward to seeing your squares evolve! Now I'm off to find out how to do the "join as you go method" cause' I hate putting lots of squares together at the end! Thanks for the heads up...
    Hugs and Happy New Year my friend,
