Today's scrapghan block is "Granny's Favorite" from Today's Woman Granny Squares Number 2, in the colors of the Dr. Who doll I finally finished!!
The pattern is called "David Tennant Big and Cuddly DrWho" from Pixelated Mushroom. If you're on Ravelry, here's the pattern page. It's a great pattern!
This was the second attempt at making a Dr. Who doll for my cousin. The first attempt with a different pattern failed horribly over a year ago... and it took awhile to finish this one too. At one point I thought the jacket was going to be too big, and I wasn't quite ready to fail yet again. It was also hard getting back into a project that I started months ago.
But yesterday I set some ground rules for myself. I set a timer for 25 minutes, and had to work straight through, and then could have a few minutes break if I needed a cup of tea or something (breaking longer for meals of course), and then back to it, and repeat. Totally worked. I couldn't believe it was finished, and the coat fit! I'm so glad I stuck with it!! And I'm going to keep my 25 minute rule idea in mind for the future because I felt so productive!
