I issue a challenge to myself

Today, what time I had for crochet was put to use making more cookies for the cookieghan and at some point, I issued a challenge to myself and as part of that I made one cherry wink:

and three iced oatmeal cookies:

I had wanted to get an updated cookie bar graph photo. At the time of the last cookie bar graph, I had completed 77 of the 169 cookies needed for this project (here is how it looked then):

but a storm was moving in and by 5:30, the skies were very overcast and the late afternoon light was obscured by an increasing number of dark, gray clouds.

Before the rain finally began to fall, however, I did manage to get this shot of the six most recently completed cookies arranged in a pyramid:

I want to make sure I get the most out of this summer, so my goal for what remains of the month of June is to finish all of the cookies for the cookieghan, and then use the first week of July to get them assembled.

While I am looking forward to what remains of the summer, I know that it will pass far too quickly, and come September, I will look back and wonder where it went.

  1. Love the iced oatmeals! All look terrific, but these just leap off the screen and make my mouth water!

  2. Have you considered using the Cookieghan as your State Fair entry this year before it makes its way to the intended recipient?

  3. The moment I became aware of the Cookieghan, like Crystal, I pondered the notion of it’s becoming your 2012 NC State Fair entry piece…. but then I had a deeper thought that you might consider this not a serious enough piece to qualify….. that 169 pieces might not appear to be a grand nor extensive enough challenge in your minds eye…. You do set a high bar for your works. Also as I think I recall there are State categories to be considered as well and this might not fir into one of the ones that would appeal to you. I’ve already pondered for months what adventure you will share in this arena 🙂
