2/28/14 - 3/4’s of the motifs are complete and joined together! Squee! The tunnel has a light at the end now!

1/2014 Okay. This s--t’s getting real. This will be done SOON. I have finished 1/2 the squares and joined them together. Almost half-way through the second half (so… that’d be 3/4 done with the motifs!)

3/5/13 - Ok, so trying to resurrect this. I started it in 2008??!!?!? Holy CRAP.

3/13 Making good progress, even tho not keeping with my original plan to have the squares all done by the end of the month. My attention has been on the Cassidy. But, still making good progress! Enjoying the hooking!

3/4/11 - I have resurrected this project for National Crochet Month 2011. My goal is to complete all the squares by the end of the month. I need people to keep me on track with this.

5/22 yeah so i’m really excited about this afghan…i’ve completed square 3 and did it in the negative. LOVE THEM. I know it will be forever before I am finished with this afghan, but I love it so much already! Pics will soon follow.

5/18 yarn is ready to go! 1121pm update: just got square one completed. Super happy with my color choices…and yarn choice. it’s so good. The sun motif is really beautiful! I’m so excited!

5/17 Going to start this SOON so I can just make motifs here and there until I have them done. Good filler ”I’m bored with all my other projects” project.
