Shaken, not stirred (3KCBWDAY7)

I went back through my Ravelry queue to see how things have panned out since I learned to crochet... which will be 1 year ago in a few days. In this past year, things have certainly been shaken up a bit.

I have completed 28 knitted items, 12 crocheted items and 3 that were a combination of the two. Okay, first off - can I say "Holy Wow" over the fact that I have completed 43 projects in a year!!  Secondly, I think it's only fair to note that one of those 12 projects was this ~

Rapunzel's New Dream - finally finished!
and it took me three months to make all 89 squares, seam it all together and do a border that was 3 complete rounds... it was a LOT of work but I think it came out really great, don't you?

My crafting world has definitely be shaken up but I must say, it gives it such a great flavor!

  8. Oh, I'm envious. I wish I could say the same for my crocheted Flowers in the Snow but alas, they are still wrapped up waiting for some attention. Beautiful projects.
