Why didn’t I think of that?

I know several people who mark the start of a new year with a new project.  Some learn a new skill, others aim to do something creative ever day, Caveman and others we know are are doing a self portrait photograph each week, for example on Flickr in 52 Weeks

So, what am I doing?  Well, nothing!  Then I found something that made me stop and think ‘I could do that’, kind of!

I’ve heard of Meet Me At Mikes many times but never looked at it.  When I did look at it for the first time yesterday I found A Granny A Day! Genius!

Pip is making a granny square every day of  the year.  Wow, I thought, that’s some commitment.  They are quick to make but one every single day?  One a week would be a bit more realistic for me, so that’s my plan.  Not just an ickle granny square though, I’m going to try to make a 6inch square every week to learn a new pattern or skill. 

I don’t have a grandmother myself, having lost one nearly 6 years ago and one before I was born, but by the end of this year I plan to have 52 of them.

It is now week 4 of 2010 so I have a little bit of catching up to do, but its early enough in the year to get it done, I’m sure.

Look out for weekly posts called ‘Granny No #’ from now until the end of the year and if you think I’m slipping, give me a nudge!

    To my shame I never got this off the ground! I think I’ll give up on beating myself up about not doing it. Great idea, but not for me I don’t think. Perhaps the regularity of it was never going to work for me as I’m not very good when I need to do things, or I’m expected to do them. Lesson learned!
