Back to blogging. For reals.

Well, yesterday was the day. Michael left early in the morning for a year of deployment. I haven't cried that hard in a very long time. I've been a wreck since then, and I don't feel like doing anything at all...
So, I probably won't be crocheting much for the next few days... *sigh* Deployment sucks...

Title? I have to have a title?

So, yesterday my "coon-mario-rug-wanting-friend" put the project on hold. BUT! I've been thinking of having my future living room Super Mario themed ANYWAYS! So I think I'm still going to give this project a go :) Hopefully this will give me enough experience to whip the other one out fast-er. Michael and I have been wanting that rug anyways, sooo.... :) So I'll still keep the countdown going on the squares :)
23 down, 357 to go :)

Is this thing on????

So, today began my first "official" blogging day, I suppose.
And better yet, a friend of mine commissioned me to make a smaller version of.... THIS!
How awesome is that?! The version I'm making is going to be a 4x4 size. The one in the picture is 7x7. I've got til the end of the month to finish it, which should be super easy!
I promised him I'd keep the blog updated of all the progress I've made throughout the next few weeks. I've figured out how many squares I need total, and for each color. Here goes!:
Light brown-12
Skin tone-66
Light blue-82

Making it a total of 380 squares.

As of now, I've finished all 6 gold. Woo! 6 down, 374 to go!

My first blog :)

Well, this starts my journey into blogging! Since my boyfriend is deploying to Iraq for a year with the Army Reserves, I've come up with a list of things I want to accomplish and things to keep me busy during this year that he's gone. (And it can also keep him up to date on things going on in the states as well *smile* )
I'll be keeping this blog updated frequently with crochet projects, my own free patterns, recent happenings... pretty much everything going on in my life... but most importantly my crochet things :)
I will officially start adding crochet projects tomorrow :)
