15 Minute Challenge

Here I am 2 weeks in a row.  Here is this weeks progress... well actually I have completed the corner and have started on the second corner this morning.    My poor index finger is raw and Leanne always jokes that I have stitched until my fingers bleed and she is pretty much right this week.  I decided to resort to my spare "Thimblelady Thimble" this morning which will let me stitch and protect my index finger.  I have a Ultra Thimble on my left index finger as well.  I kind of feel like I have castanets on and any minute I will break out into a flamenco round the lounge room.

The lurgy has hit though, I've managed to stay free of all the sickness that my family has bought home with them over winter but the changing weather has done me in over the last week or so and I have one of those lovely husky voices at the moment.

So as you can see I have managed to do my 15 minutes a day and more this week and there will be more of the same next week.  Although there is lots and lots of stitching on this block I think it is going to look fabulous when its done.  And have you guessed what I am up to yet?

Head on over to Kate's to see who else is doing the 15 minute challenge.

I'd love to see you dancing the Flamenco Amanda. Can you video that and upload it to You Tube?

I cant even begin to think of how wonderful this creation will be when it's done no matter what it is. I cant hazard a guess. It's a quilt isn't it?

Hope your husky voice (and associated ills ) get better fast.

Oh and by the way -I think you blitzed the 15 minute challenge this week !

Congrats on your progress. Your stitchery is beautiful. I know what you mean about sore fingers but I've never tried a thimble on the left hand. It's something to keep in mind.

The stitchery looks great! I feel like I need 4 or 5 thimbles to protect my fingers during hand stitching.

I love your stitchery. Not sure what you are making, but it looks beautiful.

Hope your voice recovers soon.

Thanks for linking up this week.
