I pretty much have to be to think up a project like this. Four hundred and three squares down, leaving only 558 squares left to go.
At the moment, I would like to panic, but I don’t have time.
With the number of days between now and when the project needs to be completed for this year’s state fair, I barely have time to eat, let alone give in to the dark and crazy side of panic, but I want to.
Today, however, instead of panicking, I went out on my deck with all of the supplies and tools I needed to work on my project, along with the soundtrack to The Addams Family musical, and got to work. Song after song and square after square, I worked, crocheting circles, weaving in ends, and attaching one square to another until I got this far:
The soundtrack to The Addams Family musical provides not only inspiration and focus, but also taps into my personal zeitgeist as I work the myriad stitches required to finish this project.
