Yesterday’s weather was too good to be true, and today was more of the same.
I took advantage of the sunshine and 72º F temperature and spent nearly all of the daylight hours sitting on the deck working on my current crochet projects.
First up was the African flower meditation.
I had worked the 26th hexagon the day before when the light was quickly fading. I had finished the first four rounds and needed to add a fifth:
but as I looked at it in the light of a new day and tried unsuccessfully to place it within the meditation itself, I decided the most expedient thing to do was remove the fourth round and replace it with some other color, which I did, and I soon was able to settle on a fifth round color and a final placement within the overall meditation:
With yesterday’s hexagon in place, I decided to plow ahead with today’s hexagon and after a brief hesitation here and there and with just a little bit of frogging, I got it done:
and then joined it to its hexagon compatriots:
With my African flower hexagon meditation done for the day, I turned my attention to the Fantascot I started work on yesterday.
Yesterday I finished making the three dot motifs, and today I finished making the pieces necessary for the three flower squares:
and got a start on the three granny squares:
Once the shade of the late afternoon covered the deck I found it too chilly to sit outside and ply my craft, but when the cold of January descends, and I think that warm days might never come again, I will be able to look at hexagons 26 and 27 of my meditation, and remember the warmth of a late autumn day.
