It was fun to tie crocheting and hand-quilting into the Olympic mix this time around. Especially since the amount I quilted and crocheted depended on how Team USA did!
My afghan is still in progress, but it is nine rounds bigger now. It was fun to think about the Olympian while I was crocheting his or her round.
I wasn't sure what to do during the hockey game! Should I get started on the round just in case? These are long rounds, now! In the end I was sad for USA, but happy for Canada and happy that I didn't have to crochet any more.
I probably should have made the hand-quilting a little more challenging. But my country got a record-setting 37 medals, so I did have to join a lot of edges. Here is where I am with it right now. Not all of these were joined in the past two weeks.
I might have this quilt hanging around for the next Olympics!
All in all, it was a very satisfying Olympics for me. They're fun to watch, and I was able to fit in so much crafting as well! I'm adding this button to the side bar, because I earned it!
