Today I got to enjoy one of those lazy days of summer that harken back to my childhood when summers days were like time suspended in amber.
I had my sights set on finishing the second ten-round square of the flamingo-inspired practically perfect bag, as well as finishing the last four five-round squares of the fourth practically perfect bag — oh, and I was going to weave in a lot of ends.
As it happened, I did accomplish one thing on the list; I finished the second ten-round square for the flamingo-inspired practically perfect bag:
I also got done something that was not on the list; I made the first round for twenty (of thirty-two needed) squares for the straps/edging:
I had good intentions — but before I knew it most of the day had slipped away, and I was left with just the two squares toward a flamingo-inspired practically perfect bag:
No ends were woven in and trimmed, no project was completed, but I did move at least one step closer, and tomorrow I will continue my quest for the fourth and fifth bags in my practically perfect series, moving forward, one stitch at at time.
