The Thankful Mama

Challenges Updates

I’ve made some progress on my self imposed challenges, gratitude and crochet. I just haven’t made anytime to blog about it., Maybe I need a blogging challenge too?
On the gratitude challenge I set myself the goal to list ten things, morning and evening for a week, that I am grateful for. I did successfully do this and remembered each day to complete the task. It turned out to be a pretty neat exercise. I found that it helped me purposefully focus on great and positive things that happened during the day, instead of all the things I didn’t get done or could have done better. I realized each day that I had many things to be happy about and that I was successful at. Pretty nice!
On to crochet. I have started my second amigurumi doll from the book Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts!: Amigurumi. I’m working on the Cotton Puppies. I had a tension breakthrough on this doll. I finished the head portion and started the body. After a few rows, it started looking quite different than the head, in a good way. All of my stitches were lining up and uniform. I guess your bound to improve something repeating it about a million times! After about half the body was complete, I compared it to the already finished head…oops! Yeah, that head was gigantic. I’ve already started ripping it out and ready to start it again with my new and improved tension! I have high expectations for this little cotton puppy!

Giant head...little body!
