Inspirational Post: Enjoying Hobbies: Completed Handmade Granny Square Blanket

Hello Everyone!


Today's inspirational post is about enjoying hobbies. Life can be hectic at times and sometimes people can forget to take time out for themselves. It's so important that people take time for themselves. When you think about the quote "All work and no play" is somewhat true. You have to find some kind of enjoyment out of your life and life in general.

One of favorite hobbies includes crocheting. There's nothing like completing a project that I had a vision to create! I've been working on this blanket since the end of March 2015 and I finally finished on Decemeber 21, 2015! It was only 100 granny squares, but I didn't work on it consistently. It never takes me this long to complete a project lol! Well it was worth the wait because I think this blanket came out beautifully!



What are some of your favorite hobbies?


Thanks for stopping my blog!

The blanket is beautiful, Pilar! It was defintiely worth the wait. I've been sewing off and on for a few months. I love being able to alter or repair my own things without having to take them to somebody else.
