Inching along

This seems to be the speed at which I am making progress on my 2011 North Carolina State Fair project as well as the speed at which my website has been loading today.

As a result of the most recent slowness with regard to “traffic related performance issues” with my website, I am in the process of moving to a content data networking (CDN) infrastructure. I have my fingers (and toes) crossed that this move improves performance; however, it will be a couple of days before my readers experience the much hoped for improvement.

Back to the state fair project.

Sometimes progress is made in leaps and bounds.

Sometimes it is not.

Today was one of those days where my progress was measured stitch by stitch.

I started my crochet day making more Bauhaus rectangles and squares. Here are four of the rectangles and four of the squares I made today arranged as they would be for a Bauhaus quilt block:

By afternoon, I was ready to turn my attention to one of the myriad other projects I am working on that is in some state of unfinishedness.

One that is weighing on my mind in particular is my rendition of Melinda Miller’s Kit Kat purse design. I want this ready to go in the mail when I send some other things to one of my older sons.

So today I crocheted the straps for the bag, made single crochet stitches around the edges of the front and back panels of the purse, and crocheted the bow:

I made one alteration to the bow’s center (a pink circle rather than a yellow flower) so that Kit Kat of the purse would have a bow that matched the bow on the kitty pen I found to go with the purse:

Sometimes, it is hard not to be impatient at the pace of one’s progress, but I know that these seemingly slow days are necessary to get me to the next opportunity to make progress by leaps and bounds.
