A granny square calendar

The photos in this post show February mapped out in granny squares. I'm delighted that I managed to reach my personal goal of a granny square a day and my crochet is vastly improved for it. Hopefully they will make a difference in the lives of those affected by the floods in Australia; in the meantime I'm moving on to making squares for earthquake victims in Christchurch. It's only a small gesture of help in the face of the devastation, but lots of small actions to make the world a better place do add up: there's more information here on facebook.

In general I am not doing too badly, rubbing along, tired, I'm struggling to
sleep for some reason just lately, but enjoying all the signs of spring that are all around and the sunshine we have had this week. Amazing what difference a bit of sunshine makes, everyone seems to brighten up.

Also pictured sitting on one of the squares is a new arrival to the house, a small macaroni penguin named Samuel, sent to me by a wonderful raveller. I really am most especially thrilled by him, he's a great little companion.
