What I'm Working On Wednesday/ Late Tuesday Tally

Hello Everyone,
 Once again I missed Tuesday's Tallies. Real life keeps happening. I had everything ready to post yesterday and my little one got sick. She is going to stay home today, but she is sleeping right now so I have a little time. I didn't think I had gotten much done on my One-a-Day project, but then I got everything out to take pictures and felt much better. Ravelry has a group run by Gingerbread Girl, it is great. You work on one part of your project a day. It helps to stay motivated and it is really nice to watch what everyone else is doing too. Check it out if you haven't already.
Here is my update...
I made 20 green ringed squares this week.
I added the lavender edge to the pink discs I had made last week. And this is what I have completed so far...
The part of the blanket that is sewn together is too large to get a whole picture of. This is the blanket folded with the rest of the yarn. I think I have enough to complete the blanket.
I have about half of it done. I started making the squares by the number of each color I needed. I was making them in the order they were needed for each strip of 16, then I was afraid I would run out of certain colors. The shop I get this yarn at is getting ready for Christmas and doesn't stock the whole range until after the holidays. They have to make room for the Christmas yarns. They would order it for me, but who wants to wait for yarn while in the middle of a project?  I should be done with this one right around Christmas time. I can't wait to start sewing it together again. I have to make the purple discs, the blue discs and the multi-colored discs. Then start sewing again. I love the way the mandala squares look. Thanks to Alice's pattern. Here is the other blanket that I started last week. Haven't gotten much done on it, but I like the way it is looking. It (sadly, cause I want to keep it) will be a Christmas present.
This blanket is a lot of fun to work on. I am doing different patterns and stitches throughout. I have a sequence all worked out. I like it because it doesn't get boring since every few rows I change stitches.
the last thing I am working on is a little dolly blanket. My daughter asked me a couple of days if she could pick out some yarn for me to make her dolly a blanket. How could I say no?
That's what I have been up to this week. Now I am going to Ravelry to look at everyone else's work. I will talk to everyone soon.
