2010 Crochet Blocks, so far...

A few days ago I mentioned wanting to show you some things I've made but was too excited about exhibitions and shows I saw last week to actually get to the showing off part, so here's what I was on about....

Almost a year ago I set myself the crazy goal of crocheting 200 blocks from Jan Eaton's book. Well, I'm nowhere near 200 yet - surprised?  but I have made seven new additions to the collection and took them to the park last weekend for a photoshoot.

I've added a black border to all the blocks that isn't in the book - for consistency when I join them.
