15 Minute Challenge

Its still school holidays and last week was my first week back at work, I did still manage to do a few things last week to keep up the challenge.  The cot quilt is all finished and the binding is done it is already wrap and give away tomorrow, need to fit in quick trip for a card and wrapping paper before heading off to deliver it.

I've come to the realisation that my 12 year old son has a better social life than me.  He has had friends over, followed by lazer skirmish on Monday and a day at the water slides yesterday.  We are heading for another super hot day tomorrow and I think I might take refuge in the sewing room for a while.  Squid has put in an order for a pencil case for the new school year.

We took Squid to the Botanic Gardens yesterday to fill in the morning/early afternoon.  Monday night it was reported on the nightly news that the lotus flowers were in full bloom.  As we had seen the pond in winter when it was all dead I really wanted to take some photo's of what it looked like in Summer.  Squid was happy to go as long as she got to play in the trees.

Better give you a run down of the week it sort of went like this:

Wednesday - Nothing coffee with the girls
Thursday -  Quilting Cot quilt
Friday - quilting cot quilt
Saturday - quilting binding
Sunday - more binding
Monday - binding
Tuesday - finished off the binding and a bit of photography

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

I'll leave you with some pictures from yesterday's adventure.

A really good week, with a finish even. That's pretty good for just the second week of 2013. The lotus flowers are beautiful. Great photos.

The lotus flowers are beautiful I went and saw them last year. The water lilies are impressive with their spiky leaf pads. I LOVE the botanic gardens.
