WIP Wednesday -- My 365

Before I write about my 365, I first want to show that I did a little work on the selvage toothbrush rug.
It's not as large as the picture perceives it to be  :)


Now on to my 365.  The other day Julie and Julia was on TV.  It's a movie that I've been wanting to watch for some time now.  Many of you know the movie and know that it's about Julie, who decides to do a 365 by making at least one recipe from the Julia Child Cookbook each day of the year, and blogging about it.
At one point in the movie her mother is chiding her over the phone on it being a silly idea.  She tells her mom that doing anything for 365 days in a row is a good idea.
This reminded me of a book I reviewed called The Gnome Project.  In this book the gal is felting a Gnome each day for 365 days.  Doing something for 365 days sets a routine and then other routines will naturally follow.
You can find my original and full review here:

The Gnome Project by Jessica Peill-Meininghaus


As I wrote about last week, I have a very large yo-yo project for a special order to make.  This has prompted me to make making 3 yo-yo's each day my 365 for the year.  I have to get them made for the project, and I have other yo-yo projects in mind as well.
Of course I hope to have some days where I make more than 3, but 3 is a good number and what I must do to get the big project done in time.
I hadn't planned on showing the yo-yo's every week, but since I've made it my 365, I now will.


Do you have a 365?   I'm linking up both The Gnome Project book and the Julie and Julia movie at the bottom of the post for those interested.
