I almost (but not quite) finish the second panel

I am, at this juncture, still trying to find my groove with this year’s state fair project.

While I have finally figured out most of the design, I am still crocheting a bit too slowly.

I had hoped that by the time I was ready to take a photo of my progress over the past two days, I would have crocheted all of the squares of soil for the chicken coop and pomegranate panel of this piece, but it turned otu that I was 28 brown squares shy of completion:

Why, you ask? (Or maybe you don’t.)

I got tired of making brown squares, so I made some blue squares, some gray squares, and an assortment of green squares for the other scenes. I worked out the design of one of the corner panels, and I spent a good amount of time (so far unsuccessfully) trying to track down an object that had been in my grandmother’s house so that I could figure out what color yarn I would need to render a facsimile of it in two-round granny squares.

But tonight, after the photo was taken, dinner eaten, and the dog walked, I took hook to yarn, and in a state that could best be described as contemplative panic, I made 7 of the 28 squares I need to finish this panel, so maybe, just maybe, I will soon be ready to move onto whatever is next.

  1. The development of this year’s fair entry is coming along beautifully. I can’t wait to see what comes next. So far the scene is one we can all relate to with warm memories.
