Abstract: Stars with changing Blazhko periods challenge the currently proposed hypotheses for the Blazhko effect. RR Lyr, the prototype of the class, is one of the best-studied Blazhko stars but it keeps on surprising its observers. We present the first results from a photometric follow- up campaign in 2006-2007 of the star. Multicolour data were gathered from 4 different observatories in the northern hemisphere. Our analysis focuses specifically on the period behaviour. We confirm the previously reported decrease of the modulation period.
