Unexpected sunshine

I had my day all planned out.

It was going to be overcast, and when it wasn’t overcast, it was going to rain, except that it wasn’t overcast, and it didn’t rain.

When I finally accepted that the sunlight was here to stay for most of the day, I set aside my plans and preconceived notions and began to work on making more of the center squares for the multi-color motifs for my 2012 North Carolina State Fair project.

The first square I began with Red Heart With Love lettuce:

I used Red Heart Super Saver claret to begin the next center square:

and moved onto Red Heart Super Saver burgundy from there:

I finished up with Red Heart Classic medium brown:

Unlike squares past, today I wove in the ends as I went. I have been making progress on my efforts to bring small patches of order to my various work areas, and I wanted my days’ efforts to be tidier than usual.

When the sunlight began to fade, I set my hooks and yarn on top of the piano where Clooney, my beloved, but overly curious dog cannot reach, and got this group photo:

Then I reoriented them and go this photo as well:

I don’t exactly what tomorrow will bring, but armed with my crochet hooks and a stash bag of yarn, I am ready for it.
