Some much needed sweater weather arrived today when a much anticipated cold front moved in bringing clear skies, and (for a moment, anyway) much lower humidity than we had had at anytime over the past four weeks.
What this meant for me on a practical terms was that once I completed some weekend obligations and errands, I had excellent light and equally excellent weather, allowing me to sit outside on my back deck and get a start on the remaining fourteen center squares I need to finish making all of the multi-color motifs that I need for my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project.
By 2:00 pm, I was ready to sit down with my hook and my yarn stash and get to work, but it seemed to take me forever to find my color groove, but shortly before 4:00 pm, I finally finished the first square, and whatever it was that had impeded my progress seemed to have come unstuck, and the subsequent squares went more quickly.
Here is one view of my work:
and here is another:
As this Sunday draws to a close, I am faced with the fact that when I wake up in the morning, there will be just 28 full working days (and one half day) left until I need to have this project turned in.
I hope that I am able to build on today’s momentum, and make more substantial progress through the rest of the week.
