15 Minute Challenge

 I remembered on the weekend that I didn't list as to do last week a Mixed Media roll that I made for my friend Kay for her birthday and of course I didn't take any photo's which was very short sighted of me.   I used lovely textured Japanese fabric, and lined and made the pockets with plastic.  I thought it would be good for  Kay to store her paint brushes and other bits and pieces that we are collecting with our Mixed Media kits and it wouldn't matter if they were still wet or had a bit of paint left on them..  I think that I probably should make a couple of them for my etsy shop, but I am sort of in the middle of a few projects at the moment and I need to concentrate on a couple of other things right now.

As you can see the pile of crochet flowers is growing.  I have ordered the cotton that I will use to join the flowers (don't know exactly how I will be doing this was thinking of doing a border for each one.  I want to make 4 of each colour before I start joining them together, I am about half way there.

This lovely pile of fabric is for a project for QFD, I have been waiting all day for a guy to come and service my heater, he finally decided to get here at 2pm for a morning appointment, at least I got my ironing done and most of one project cut out.

The week went like this:
Wednesday - nothing (dinner with the girls)
Thursday - stitching Lynette Anderson button club
Friday - crochet/stitching button club
Saturday - tiny hexies, crochet, stitching
Sunday - Nothing Football has taken over most of my life
Monday - hexies, crochet
Tuesday - Bit more design work and started cutting out new project.

Head on over to Kate's to see who else met the challenge.

Five days out of seven is pretty good. Your stack of flowers is looking lovely and I love your red and white pile of fabric. Making a quilt of that color combo is on my bucket list.

Love your crocheted flowers. I too ├žan crochet but not knit - oh I know how, but my tension is so tight. It's a soothing pastime.
