Craft-a-thon results

I just got through reading some of my favourite blogs. Some from people I know in real life, some not, and I have come to the conclusion that bloggers are awesome! Marc wonders where the last five days (Easter and Anzac day holidays here in Australia) have gone, here, and then shows us what she has achieved in that time. And Jodie despairs with what she has achieved during her two weeks of holidays and then lists her achievements here. She is disappointed, but what she has done is amazing! I love that these people blog and that I get to see inside their houses and lives. I love that they share their achievements with me. In a way, I like to see that they expect more of themselves, that they fall short of their goals. This is comforting to me I guess because this small crocheted cardigan is the sole finish from my five day craft-a-thon. It is a three months size and it is the only thing I made for the new grandchild over the past five days. Of course, that doesn't detract from it's awesomeness! I really like it. It is the first crocheted item of clothing I have made from a pattern. I really love the yarn I used too.

So, here it is. An awesome tiny cardigan that took me five days to make. I like it!

The little cardigan is gorgeous. It's all about quality not quantity when you have a craft-a-thon weekend. Congratulations!

Im constantly falling short of my own expectations of what I should get done in a day ..I need more hours!

Well done! It's a gorgeous cardy!! If you're feeling bad... I got one hexie flower made and that's it! ;) And as Shay said... quality before quantity!!

Lovely cardy, and crocheted as well, it reminds me of the cardy I used to wear for ballet when I was about 8. I didn't actually finish anything either, I had big plans but ... anyway there is always another weekend isn't there.

Well done on the cardigan. It will be so snug and cosy. At least you had a 'finish'.

Still loving your header picture. I think we are way too hard on ourselves far to much. Life is meant to be enjoyed not a constant struggle especially our crafty pursues

It is gorgeous. And doesn't the effort count instead of the amount?
