With this year’s North Carolina State Fair deadline looming on the horizon, I have decided that I absolutely, positively, must create some finishing mojo to see me through, and to that end, I began work on a baby sweater.
Yesterday, I finished work on the “skirt” of Moogly’s Eloise baby sweater, a project I had begun over the weekend to generate the finishing mojo I need to see me through these next thirteen days to the state fair deadline:
Using the mojo that the skirt of the sweater generated, I got out yarn needle and added more bullion stitches to two of the pieces and finished tacking down the pumpkin on the other:
Feeling that I was getting somewhere, I continued with my embroidery adorning efforts and completed three more of the crochet crazy quilt pieces:
and I even managed (before it was time to walk the dog in what little daylight remained) to start work on one more piece:
Then, I got this last photo of the day in the five or so minutes that the sunlight hits my porch “just right” in these increasingly short days:
The shorter days of autumn, are a visible reminder of just how quickly these days are passing by, and before I know it the deadline for the fair will be here, and I am hopeful that this year, I will meet it.
