Teensy steps

Life is still crazy, I guess I shouldn't have expected anything different in 2016. I'm holding out hope for May, when my schooling will be complete.

In the mean time, my goal for January is to hook every day. First of all, I tweaked a project that I mostly hooked in 2015. This landscape was designed by Wanda Kerr of The Welcome Mat, for a class that she offered last year. When I first hooked it, Wanda provided gentle feedback on what I could tweak to improve the piece. Life got in the way, and the revisions didn't happen until months later when the course was over and I couldn't find the feedback. 

Alas, here it is.....

Finishing still required. Wonder what century that will happen?

Wait, there's more! No kidding. 

Wanda also runs a January Journal group every year and I usually want to participate. Though I don't really have time, I found a way to make my participation so simple that I might actually be able to pull it off. I figured that if I could hook a little bit in January, it would provide some Calm that I'm seeking, and provide some stress-relief. The theme this year is "Minding the Line". I elected to take the theme literally, and am hooking 3 lines per day. The first reflects the weather, the second reflects my mood, and the third reflects the overall feel of the day for the family. So far, I'm up-to-date. Yeehaw!

Now, please note this is a piece in progress and then lines that are missing are meant to be "snow" which will be fluffy white yarn, which pulls out continually while hooking. So those spots will remain empty until the last day. 

Progress shot.....

The numbers sit on the lines for that date (i.e. 4 is on January 4th's lines). 

Just a fun, colourful (unless I'm in a bad mood, or the weather sucks) rug that's keeping me hooking this month.
