In which I join 133 squares

Today is the last day of September, and over the past two months, I have spent most of my time crocheting one square after another.

Now that I have crocheted the vast majority of the squares I will need to recreate summer at my grandmother’s house in granny squares, I have been faced with the task of joining the 1521 squares that comprise this effort, and over the last two days, I have focused on joining the squares that have accumulated on the coffee and end tables in my living room.

Then, once I had finished with those, I began joining the squares that had been sorted into one of nine bags for each of the panels of this year’s North Carolina State Fair project.

As sunset neared, I got this photo of what I got done over the past two days:

Clearly if I am going to finish this piece in time for the fair, I will need to pick up the pace a bit, but in the meantime, I will move forward as I always do: one stitch at a time.
