Seven days and counting

This morning I awoke to six full crochet days on the calender and a half-day to get all the pet hair off my entries and delivered to the State Fairgrounds for the 2012 North Carolina State Fair.

Looming deadline notwithstanding, the day started out as it usually does. I got up, made my son breakfast, and then got myself ready to walk with him to the bus stop.

Once I stepped outside the cocoon of the air in my home, I was greeted by warm, damp air, which, after the sun rose looked like this:

This is what my mother calls “Air you can wear.” But be that as it may, there is just not that much time between me and the state fair deadline.

When I went to sleep last night, I had gotten this far with the assembly of my project:

And today, once my errands were run and the living room vacuumed of as much pet hair as I could get up, I once again set to work on the assembly of my state fair project, and I made this much progress before I finally had to pack it up and put it where the animals could not shed on it:

If I think about it, I get a little nervous that I will not finish this project in time, and at times like that, I have to stop thinking and just do whatever it is that needs doing.

  1. One Day one breath one stitch at a time……. So many of us out here in the Nether space sending you Love Mojo and a combined desire to see it completed on time…… Can’t speak for others: but I for One Am filled with the Belief that You can and Will finish on time.

  2. It is looking fantastic. You are amazing, what you can accomplish in a day. I am sorry I haven’t been cheering you on, daily, during your creation. I have been with you in spirit. I am nursing a very sick puppy and barely have time to read emails, let alone comment. Tonight I thought I better let you know, I am out here rooting(sp?) you on. You will finish on time and we will be SO proud to have been a part of this gorgeous afghan.

  3. It is looking nothing short of spectacular!!! You’re in the home stretch !! Of course you can do this.
    (putting on my pompoms) Go GO gooooooooooo!

  4. It’s beautiful! And I’m positive you will finish in time although I hope you have some of the ends already woven in!
