Last week I joined this wonderful group on Ravelry, the One a day group started by the lovely Carole from the Gingerbread Girl blog. It is such an inspiring group with lots of kind, beautiful people. The idea is simple, make one part of one of your projects. Could be a granny square, a row or in my case a flower. You might have seen the project already in this post. This is how it looks now:
This is the perfect way to tackle those bigger long-term projects. Most of the times I start all enthusiastic and full of energy, day after day.......after day. And then my eye catches a new pattern, how beautiful, I must make this at once! The bigger project.....Suddenly less appealing. Recognize this? Then you should definitely join the One a day group. It keeps you so motivated. Carole made a 'Mr. Linky' so everyone who blogs about there one a day project can join in the fun! So, I will keep you posted about the project.
I want to share a little something else too, a little home decoration. I am a coast girl as some of you might know. Born and raised with the sea within walking distance. I found this old poster that I got from my mums once. It names all kinds of fish that swim in our beloved North Sea. Some funky looking ones too, haha. So, I decided to give it a nice place in my study room. Now I can look at it from now and then and feel right at home!
Isn't nice? It's a bit like biology class haha.
So do you have some things in your home that have a history? Objects that have a special story or furniture that belonged to someone special?
