15 Minute Challenge - School Holiday Give a Big Cheer

 Its school holidays, which means no school drop offs which have been horrendous the last few weeks as the school is one big construction site and the road is full of trucks and tradie vans.  

Mo has only 2 official weeks of school left after a 2week break, though her Design Class which is held on a Wednesday is probably still going to continue for a few weeks after that.  None of her subjects have exams just big pieces of work that have to be handed in.  The school formal is going ahead which is great since we have already purchased the dress.  

Mo went to a party last night, they didn't stay long just a couple of hours, it was held in a dingy warehouse.  She came out looking a little bit wide eye'd.  Pot was being smoked and someone had an adverse affect after drinking too much.  She isn't a big party person anyway and neither is her boyfriend so they were both happy for an early one.  I think she has a couple of more parties to attend this holidays everyone is turning 18 which is drinking age here in Australia. Mo isn't really interested in drinking and pushing boundaries I'm sure she will go through that phase at some point just not now.  

This week I have been crocheting.  Here are my finished square about a 3rd of the way through.  Have to get some more wool for the cream alternate squares but it is on back order.  

Cross stitch progress hasn't been as much this week and I've worked out a mistake in the border, but I know how I can fix it.  
I think I will be doing cross stitch tonight so I can get this done this week.  

All in all it was a 7 out of 7.

Sounds like a busy week. Having a couple of weeks of slower pace sounds nice. Both your crochet and cross stitch projects are looking good. Hope you get more time for both of them this next week.

I am glad Mo is not interested in drinking and drugs. I was never interested so hopefully she will skip the phase too. Your crochet is so lovely. All those bright colors look so pretty on the cream. Your stitching project looks good too.
