15 Minute Challenge

Well the challenge has fallen in a bit of a whole at the end of the week but beginning started out good.

I nearly finished another one of my secret squirrel projects just to test the pattern as it is a little bit complicated and I needed to make sure I had all the steps right.  Just need to do some hand stitching.

The embroidery for my other secret squirrel project is just about finished, I'd say about 1/2 and hour to go on that one, I just didn't have it in me to finish it Sunday night.  

Monday I headed to a meeting natural health for your pets, it was a worthwhile meeting as my dog has allergies which means she gets lots of ear infections.  They talked about how a raw food diet is best for dogs and not the commercial dry/moist foods that we all tend to feed them because we just don't know what is in them as the manufacture isn't required to tell us.

I'm glad it was worthwhile because I managed to fall down a step in the dark on the way out, and now I am feeling pretty sore and sorry for myself.  So 2 days have been without sewing this week.

Coco is now on a BARF diet and I think she is actually a bit better today, she has been really off for about a week as she is on antibiotics but today she is a lot brighter, instead of just moping around.

The week went kind of like this:

Wednesday: nadda (coffee with the girls)
Thursday: embroidery
Friday: embroidery
Saturday:SS project
Sunday: SS project/embroidery
Monday: nadda
Tuesday: nadda but it did put together this little goodie which is for all my mixed media supplies.  I am going to get another one for my sewing stuff.  It took just over an hour to put it all together.

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

Don't you think "BARF" is a rather unfortunate acronym for a diet? I'm pretty sure I don't want to know what that stands for.

Hope you are feeling better after your misstep. Even if it put you off a bit, you didn't have a totally loser week on the sewing front.

I hope you're feeling a bit less like you had a fight with a Mack truck.

We have always made our own dog food . Its not that much effort and I know what they're eating that way. Maybe we can trade recipes. Although we cook ours...

sounds like your life is pretty darn busy so i think you did well with four days.

my granddog lives with me at the moment and she has allergies . . . maybe i should be considering this BARF diet for her . . . will have to do a google search.

the tower of tool/cool caddy looks handy. i'm always wishing i had a good way to store my mixed media stuff so it isn't all over the place but i can still access it easily.

I don't know about BARF diet. Seriously, What kind of diet is that? Is it vegetarian diet? And what that stands for?
Just curious.
