2015 Sampler Blanket

I have spent a lot of time recently trying to decide what I will be doing over the next year. What will be the one word for 2015? Then I read about a Sampler Blanket or in my case a quilt over at CraftyRie and I think no rules just a hashtag #2015samplerblanket Create a quilt with my own rules a couple blocks a month. Rie says - You can knit, crochet, quilt, embroider the blocks.. or rectangles.. or hexagons.. or circles. You can join as you go or make them continuous or leave them in a pile and join them at the end. You can make a square every day or week or month or season.... I think I like the square a month idea myself. You can choose one colour or a multitude of colours. Any pattern. Any design. Any stitch. What do you think? Does this sound like fun to you? I think it will be fun why don't you join us! Hop on over to CraftyRie and link up with me! Project #1 - #2015samplerblanket Everyone doing their own thing but together! Sounds Unique which is right down my alley!

You should take a look at her blog she made the coolest fish I have ever seen. I met her through a blog hop, which is a great way to find new blogs and meet new people online. I sent her some yarn and needles I had picked up at an estate sale because it was a half finished something with connected knitting needles and I had no idea how to finish it. My thought was she would know what to do with it. Of course, she did and sent it back for my granddaughter that is due in January. I never expected that! It bring me to tears. It makes me so happy to be apart of something. Such nice like minded people in the blogging community. Rie you are a treasure! She al
