August arrived, time to break

July, August, the traditional holiday months.  No school for the youngsters, everyone has sunny  (normally that is) days off.
I joined Susannah Conway’s August Break, a leisurely, free, “post a day” in real holiday mood.   Want to post a picture? Fine!  Don’t feel like it today?  That’s fine too.
Subject? Doesn’t matter, anything.  How many? One, 5, none….  You see,  the perfect holiday feel.

I thought that it also was a good time to start with a new project: I bought a whole lot of wool and started a patchwork plaid. Heaps of colorful squares needed, no complicated patterns, just grab whatever color lies near me and a crochet.
It’s been years since I did that, but apparently it’s a lot like swimming or riding a bike: once you know how, you keep remembering.  A little “wobbly” at the start, but it all comes back in a sec.
It’s fun! I can take it with me to the fysio-therapist, to my mom’s, in the garden… much like my i-Phone actually.
I thought, I start with it now, then it just might be finished when winter comes.  And then I can cuddle up underneath it… I need about 80 squares, 5 of them ready… 75 to go… piece of cake! And besides, the name of the wool is “Bravo”, nothing can go wrong, I already got my applause!

I took a picture of it that serves two purposes: Susannah Conway’s August Break, and my August Project.

Have a nice August break
