New Year - new challenges

Happy New Year everyone!

Sorry for not posting over the last week, after all the work of Christmas I took a little time away from blogging and crafting to give me a chance to do something different for a short time, like spending far too many hours on my DS playing the latest Dragon Quest game. I'm back now though and I have lots of things to start posting about so be reassured that I won't have any problems in doing my regular blog posts again.

What new challenges are you all setting yourself this year? Right now I want to hold off making any proper resolutions as this is going to be a busy year for our family, we have a house move to start planning and all the work that will involve should keep us pretty occupied. That said, I would like to be able to contribute a bit more to other projects this year - especially the SIBOL project that takes 6" granny squares to make into lap blankets for the elderly.

These two squares are tests squares I made up from a block pattern that was being discussed as a potential blanket theme. I'm also going to try and make more blocks for their 'Jan Eaton' challenge, I've already contributed my first block to the first Jan Eaton blanket (you can see the finished blanket here - and I've put a note on the image to say which square I made) and I'm working on a second block to go into the second blanket now.

The SIBOL is a fantastic project to be a part of - why not make doing one square for it as one of your New Year resolutions?
