Seven days and counting redux

I awoke to a chill in the air and just six-and-one-half days to finish this year’s state fair project, and the sense that I had done this before, and in fact, I had. Just last year, I found myself seven days out and counting: redux!

While I crocheted joins and wove in ends, my mind drifted to thoughts of state year’s past, and after I had finished joining the last seven cookie motifs into a strip:

and gotten this photo that is an overview of all of the 49 motifs needed, including the two most recently completed seven-motif strips that need to be joined:

I wondered how this year compared to where I was last year’s entry, and when I checked back to what was going on six days before the entry deadline last year, I saw that I was in a place not unlike where I find myself today:

As is true of this year, I am working to join all of the pieces, and I have many ends to weave in before I sleep.
