I nearly finish the remaining multi-color motifs

My son had the day off from school today which mean that despite being the very middle of the week, the day had the feel of a weekend to it.

Rather than awakening before the break of dawn and walking my son to the bus stop, dog in tow, the dog had to get me up so I could take him out for a walk.

Once his perambulation was completed, I got to my more usual weekday chores, and by ten o’clock, I was ready to get started on the ten last multi-color motifs I need to complete before I can begin assembly of my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project.

Here are the motifs laid out in the late morning light on my back deck:

After a late lunch and another walk with the dog, I persisted in my efforts to finish the motifs:

Progress was slow, but it was progress:

and while I was tempted to skip dinner in order to continue my work uninterrupted, I decided to pack it all up and come in the house to prepare our evening meal after I had reached this point:

Much of what propels me at this point is my own desire to see how this project will come together.

I have done some assembly test runs and know from a technical standpoint that the pieces should fit together, but I don’t know for certain how the project will look when the pieces are finally assembled, and if I am ever going to find out, I had better get busy weaving in these ends.
