To paraphrase old blue eyes, “Ragrets, I have had a few….”
This year is not going to be like a misspelled tattoo that leave one filled with either regrets or ragrets, but unlike 2015 and 2016, I am going to finish my state fair piece — although you might not be able to tell from the most recent photo which shows it nowhere near as close to done as I would hope:
What you can’t see is that in my head it is finished, and that vision is what will carry me through the evening — and into the morning if need be — while my hands and my body complete the work that has already been done in my head, and my hope is that in the time remaining I am able to translate that vision into a completed crochet crazy quilt center panel with all of the embroidered bells and whistles one expects of a crazy quilt, even one worked in crochet.
In the meantime, here are some photos from yesterday that show the progress in better light:
