almost finished...




While a whole lot of napping is going on....

...there was also a whole lot of crocheting going on.

Participating in Melissa's fabulous a square a day in may -- which I loved, btw -- I have finally finished all of the blocks.

May 14  Violet





May 15  More V's Please





May 16  Alter Ego





May 17  Lemony Lime Citrus Square




May 18  Starburst Flower Square





May 19  Ladybug Square




May 20  Eye of the Beholder




May 21  Georges Granny




May 22  Impossible Hexagon




May 23  Versailles



May 24  Bright and Cheery




May 25  Birthday Flower




May 26  Blooming Lace




May 27  Grandma's More Complex Star





May 28  substitution --> Groovy Purse instead of
Peace Sign Granny Square

Why the substitution for this block?  Well, simply -- my children inform me on almost a daily basis that if it was 'in' when I was a kid, then it  is not 'in' for me when I am an adult.  And seeing how I grew up with the whole greg-marcia-brady-groovy-far-out-peace-sign thing, I can not revist that or worse yet, embrace it. 
b
Actually, I think my kids fear that I will start using 'far out!' and 'groovy!' whenever I talk to them.....or gasp! ...when their friends are over!
s
Oh, the thought of it.




May 29  Yarn Clouds Square



May 30  Kaleidoscope Blossom


I have already woven all of the ends of each block (thank you 6 hour road trip in the family van last weekend...) and now for the icing on the cake---> joining them together into a gorgeous throw. 
n
I can't wait! 
b
Honestly, this whole thing has been a huge uplifting endeavor.  Seeing everything come together; with all of the vibrant colors; and the design of the blocks ---- well, for someone who can talk herself out of completing a project, this has been Far out! fabulous!

I stumbled on your site not too long ago, and I love your colors and this block a day feature. I plan on doing it, and I went out and bought Monet the day I found your site, and I just love it. I have actually saved all the patterns in ravelry so I can just go in and do the blocks when I am ready.
