Thirteen days

That is how many days there are between me and the deadline for the 2015 North Carolina State Fair.

I still have a few more pieces to make, but most of the work left to be done is surface detailing and assembling and weaving in of ends.

So while I did manage to make nine more two-round squares:

Most of my time was spent piecing what I now think of as the “piano panel,” and I was delighted to have made what felt (and feels) like substantive progress:

And now, since there is so little time left between me and my deadline, I had better use what there is as fully as I can.
