The Beginning: #the100dayproject

Posted by Shannon Gallagher on

I first came across #the100dayproject on a friend's Instagram account and thought it sounded like an amazing idea and quite the challenge. And if anyone knows me, they know that I don't easily back down from a challenge.

"What Is the 100-Day Project? It’s a celebration of process that encourages everyone to participate in 100 days of making. The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100-Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process." -- thegreatdiscontent.com

I struggled to decide what to work on for 100 days - do I pick something I already know or something I want to learn? Here's a couple of the ideas I had:

  • Drawing
  • Playing the flute (which I have neglected to do for many years now)
  • Write something, anything
  • more
  • more

Pinterest: had a board filled with crochet ideas

Wanted to make Addy something

Grabbed a book and youtube videos and decided to learn

At this point I knew that if I didn't continue to practice crocheting, I was going to lose what I'd learned (just like with guitar, etc.etc.)

That's how I ended up crocheting for 100 days.
