A few days ago, I made the most of the sunshine and moderate temperatures that we were enjoying.
Today I made the most of the overcast skies and a rain that persisted throughout the day.
After running a longer overdue errand, I sat down to get some work done, and with no sunshine and light breezes to tempt me, I found it easy to stay inside and do what needed doing.
First I tended to my many crochet pin boards at Pinterest, one of which I had apparently neglected for over 2000 years:
After remedying that oversight, I moved on to the many other things in my purview that needed doing, and among those is my ongoing crochet square rehab effort.
I am, at this point, focused on creating five-inch crochet squares from the various and sundry pieces from previous crochet projects. I met with continued success first with these assortment of crochet motifs that had been worked in an assortment of bright colors
and then these three squares with crochet circles at their center in more muted tones:
and finally with these four monochrome crochet rosettes joined into one square:
But not all of the pieces I have can be turned into five-inch squares. My collection of crochet rectangles leftover from my 2011 North Carolina State Fair project measure six inches in length, so instead of making them into five-inch squares, I transformed them into six-inch crochet squares in what can best be described as a television test pattern:
By the time I finished with those squares, there was still enough daylight left for me to take photos of how to join textured crochet squares for a tutorial I am working.
Here was the final crochet photo of the day:
With he rain was a steady and constant companion, I ended up being able to get a lot done, and when the sun rises on tomorrow, I will continue my pursuit, one stitch at a time.
