May 350 Block Report

“Our new goal for May is to make 46¬†blocks
for a year-to-date total of 149.

and our new goal for June, which is 38 blocks,
for a year-to-date total of 187.”
Prairie Moon Quilts

My total to date –
January 33 + February 34 + March 22 + April 12 + May 0 = 101

Yes, zero, I cut strips for my 30’s scrappy trip-around-the-world,
but nothing sewn together.

,
I don’t even have a new picture.
I love the way these blocks look.

We left Sacramento, CA, on our vacation road trip on May 11.
I did pack my sewing machine
but it hasn’t seen the light of day.
I’m doing good to get in some crocheting on my #100 day project.
We are now in Holmes County Ohio.

#100 Days Project

My #100 day project of crocheting has hit a detour.

We live near Sacramento, CA.
We left May 11 on a road trip vacation
pulling a 22 ft trailer
driving north into Washington,
east through Idaho ans Montana,
south to Denver, Co,
east to Chicago, IL,
southeast through IN into Kentucky,
northeast to Ohio arriving
in Holmes County Ohio, Amish country on June 3, 2017.

I had time most evenings to crochet,
but little energy to do so.
I’m the navigator
and it takes much concentration at times.
Thinking is hard work.

I’ve missed 18 days of crocheting.

I finally finished row 63,
completed row 64 and started row 65
on May 16, non-moving day.
Then I had to rip back
because row 65 wouldn’t work out.
So not much head way,
but I finally figured out my problem
and now I’m on row 66.
Row 66 section between ‘hills’ reads
*sc in next 18 stitches,
hdc in next 2 sts,
dc in next 2 sts,
edc in next 2 sts,
tr in next st,
tr2tog,
tr in next st,
edc in next 2 sts,
dc in next 2 sts,
hdc in next 2 sts,
sc in next 18 sts*
9 times.

I am enjoying, when I’m not ripping,
the challenge of this #100 day project of crocheting.
