Motivation comes in so many forms.  Music, nature, your children’s needs to name a few.  As I have mentioned before, I sometimes get bored with a project that takes too long.  Do I have a short attention span?  Nah, I just sometimes choose projects that are larger and last longer than my attention span, Lol.

The afghan I have been working on for my guest room is one of those projects!  I need 144 squares to get to the finish line.  Well, I had only finished 24 of them when the excitement had faded some.  While crocheting the baby blanket for my cousin in Ireland, I became motivated to get back to work on guest room afghan.  The winter is also coming and this afghan is dense and heavy, it will be so warm when needed.

After another 24 blocks made…..


Whaaaa laaaaaa, shizzzzzam, it has doubled in size!  Still a long way to go, but progress has been made.  This pattern is so much fun to assemble too, I just need to remind myself of that periodically he he he.  Truly a beautiful addition to the guest (my Mom’s) room, just need to stay motivated to get it done before the winter sets in……….

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!

    Looks like you are doing a really nice job. I like the choice of keeping the block the same color on the diagonal. Will be great to see it when you are all finished….soon. 😉
