100 Happy Days – Day 1

100 Happy DaysI’ve been seeing 100 Happy Days posts all over the place recently, and wondered what they were about. Then I started thinking I could perhaps have 100 Happy Days, and started wondering whether I could do the challenge. Then yesterday, quite by accident, I read this blog post in which M.E. Mummy talked about starting her own 100 Happy Days challenge, and I decided I would take part. And so here is day number 1. If you want to know more about the challenge, you can visit the 100 Happy Days website.

2014-03-04 20.59.39I’ve been making my eldest son an Afghan blanket, at his request. He saw the Afghan squares I was making for the Moogly CAL and asked if he could have a blanket of his own.

I am very happy to say that tonight he is tucked up in bed with the completed blanket. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

However, now that it’s finished, Plum is eagerly awaiting her own Afghan blanket, and happily picked out the colours she wanted in the wool shop today 🙂

  1. I love these blankets. I have a lot of squares I have made set aside to put a blanket together for my Mum.

  2. 100 days of happiness in a row??? Now THAT is a challenge! It’s more than 3 months, so it includes 3 menstrual cycles!!lol ah ah. Love your blankets, how long does it take you to do them? I think it’s fabulous to do this and they will probably, in the future, be passed down to the next generations!

    • I try and do the squares in between other things, so probably get one a day done. So that’s 20 days. Plus the finishing off, that was another day, and the stitching together was another day. And the border took several days (since I can’t work on it all the time). There were plenty of gaps in between too, so it took a month all in I suppose

  3. I love these posts and that blanket is brilliant, my mum did one for me recently which fits my King Size Bed x
