My Marathon

Some people run them..I'm crocheting mine! Yep, that's my 30th year of life goal...to finish one large afghan before my 30th birthday (10.10.10). Think I can make it?
I've kicked my production into high gear these past few weeks and lowered my goal to 63 total squares from the original 70. And guess how many I have finished? 40! (plus a few in progress)
Wesley has been helping a bit...if you can call throwing them around the room and dancing on them help. AND Jeff has even let me teach him some technique (he's a natural, btw).

What big goals are you working on? Something fun and creative? Something hard and time-consuming? Best of luck...I hope you accomplish it, I feel confident I'm going to accomplish mine!

It's gonna be great! I can't wait to see it all together. I love the colors you're using, and I'm quite impressed with your progress. If you ever need me to help you by throwing squares around and dancing on them, just let me know.

I love it! It is going to be such a beautiful afghan. Now I feel like I need to think of some sort of goal before I turn 30! I'm inspired by you Gough girls'

Also, thanks for the lesson yesterday and for sticking with me even when I felt overwhelmed and wanted to quit. ;) I was seriously impressed by your teaching!
