All done but the stuffing

Yesterday, I enjoyed the first day of summer by spending much of it crocheting.

In addition to weaving in the ends on the twenty African flower hexagons needed for my current crochet soccer ball project:

I also finished work on the twelve African flower pentagons called for:

Twelve pentagons for my crochet soccer ball

When I got up this morning, all that was left to be done was to figure out in what order I wanted them arranged:

crochet hexagon and crochet pentagon motifs for a crochet soccer ball
I lay out the pieces for the soccer ball

piece them together, weave in and trim all of the ends, and then trim the ends Here is a late afternoon photo of my progress:

The soccer ball still needed a few of the pentagons pieced, so I continued my work until well after sunset and then turned the soccer ball right side out:

Now all I need to so is stuff the ball, finish the seaming on three sides of one pentagon, and I will be ready to move onto whatever crochet awaits.
