15 minute challenge with Kate

Not really an awful lot achieved this week.  The teacher's pressies are still half finished as I was hit by a migraine on Monday, which left me with a headache still on Tuesday so I wasn't up to doing any more sewing, though I did work on Pattern writing for Blueberry Botanicals and I think that still counts.

I did finish the drafts of blocks 2 and 3 and they are with my official pattern checker, and I am just finishing the drafts of blocks 7 and 9 ready to send off.  Then I just have the centre block and border to write up which hopefully won't be as involved as the outside blocks.

Think I might head out to the sewing machine tonight to do more on the teacher's gifts as i have a few other things that are becoming pressing as well which need to be started.  Can't believe that the kids have only a little over 2 weeks left of school... mind you they have both had a sickie this week (my son today). Some bug they have picked up which has just left them achy and tired and lethargic I am sure the stupid weather we are having at the moment doesn't help (stinking hot one day and freezing the next).

Well enough procrastinating... head on over to Kate's to see what every one else is up to.

Migranes are not conductive to getting anything done. Hope you've fully recovered. Sounds like good progress on your pattern, some weeks you have to take it where you can get it.

Hope the kids feel better soon. My Kiddo had the same thing last month, missed 2 days of school. That's unheard of for her.

I'm doing the happy dance about those two weeks until school holidays.

It still sounds like you got a lot done - especially if you've had sick kids and a migraine on top of work and other family /household responsibilities!

Sounds like you made great progress this week, in spite of the migraine. My daughter gets them fairly often and they can lay her up for days.
