15 Minute Challenge
On Saturday afternoon I opened my first Mixed Media Kit for the year and actually finished the project (in the last picture it is sitting on the centre of the 2 draws). All the while seated at my sewing table without having to move my spinning storage which is now pretty full so I really don't want to do it.
I now have my 2 rotating storage on the sewing table, the sewing one is next to the sewing machine and the mixed media one is on the other side of the table. I have moved the iron station to the other end of the table simply because when Squid comes out to sit with me and play in the sewing room I would always have to get her to move out of the way when I wanted to iron. I think this set up is more workable.
I even escaped on Sunday to write a paper the last assignment for my current subject in the course that I am studying and I was able to get it all done quite successfully from the sewing table with no noise apart from itunes from the ipod dock. The final paper was to write a business case for a piece of equipment for the organisation that I work for. To be honest we don't need another piece of equipment in our office, so I had the idea to do a business case to purchase a Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen for Seabreeze Quilts now all I have to do is leave it around for hubby to check out and we might be able to add it to the loan for the Kitchen Reno (mind you I probably don't have a hope in hell of either happening after we got the first quote yesterday).
Better get on with the challenge the week went like this:
Wednesday: Hand Quilting
Thursday: Nadda but I did do a load of unloading on the sewing room reorg.
Friday: Hand Quilting
Saturday: Mixed Media Project
Sunday: Final touches to mixed media project and business case for Sweet Sixteen (I'm counting that)
Monday: hand quilting
Tuesday: hand quilting
Head on over to Kate's to see who else met the challenge this week.
