One a day update....grannying on


It's Tuesday again, they come around quickly at the moment, so it's time for the One a Day update.
These are the 6 squares I got finished this week, one short, I know, but there are only so many hours in a day!

I am planning to do a few extra this week to catch up and give me some breathing space.
I did get to add some purple this week, it stands out a bit at the moment, but when I get a few more done I think it will look good.  I also added a darker, bluer, green and an apple green to the mix, as I though it was getting a bit wishy washy.  I'm happier now.

So here are all the squares so far, 20 in total.

...... and because I am such a fashionista, I thought I'd show you the stylish footwear I was wearing today - socks and sandals are always in fashion, right??  hahaha.... only around the house though, my family already know I am a lost cause, but I think I still have my friends bluffed! ( Or not, I really just wear whatever I want, or whatever is cleanest, my laundry system is out of control!  But that is a whole other story.)

Linking up with the other girls over at Gingerbread Girl, have a look how their One a Day projects are progressing if you have a few minutes.
Have a great day!


  1. I love the colours of your grannies and the footwear....amazing! :) We use to wear socks and thongs as kids, such fun.

  2. Greetings from a cold and frosty UK. For someone who is pretty new to hooky your work looks quite lovely. Enjoy your trips to the beach, I am very jealous and can't wait for warmer days to come. Thought the footwear was something else!


  3. Hey Jules love the socks and sandals....at least they match...

    The purple looks great and adds another dimension to the overall look of the squares....nice 'n bright.

  21. This is a really nice square! I'm pretty sure I've done it before. Is this tricolor square from Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks? Here's my version: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yoork/5681004849/in/set-72157626509451681
