With the last awards ceremony/banquet I will have to attend for the 2011-2012 school year behind me, and just a few school days and the attendant early mornings standing between me and the end of school, dreams of summer and all that it promises have begun to fill my head.
Sleeping in until seven or even seven-thirty, long languorous days spent crocheting out on my back deck, the joy of July’s Ravelympics competitions, and the intensity of designing and making a project for the North Carolina State Fair — I love summer, and today was just enough to whet my appetite for my favorite season.
I started by sleeping in and catching up on some much needed sleep that had been missing from my week. After I walked the dog and ate some breakfast, I moved myself and my crochet gear outside to enjoy the day.
With hook in hand and a cup of coffee at the ready, I continued work on the cookieghan. While the work did not go quickly, I was pleased with my progress.
By the end of the day I had crocheted one cherry wink and one homage to Lemonades™:
icing for three iced oatmeal cookies-to-be:
and five peanut blossom cookies:
Shortly before sunset and a late dinner, I got this photo of all of the cookies I have made so far:
There are 92 cookies still to be made; I know that as more cookies accumulate, they will begin to take on a life of their own, and that, I can hardly wait to see.
