15 Minute Challenge and a real finish and another start

 Don't ask me where the last week went because I have no clue.  Still doing a fair bit of running around with Mo for school stuff.  She also had an induction day for her new job but they said it would be another week before she got any shifts, which is good because we have dentist/hair appointments that have been put off because of COVID and school. 

Maestro has just finished his first exam, a couple more to go, they are all online and he is doing them at home.    

It was a 6 out of 7 week this week.  I started a new cross stitch project and finished mounting last weeks finish to the match box.  I painted the match box and finished it with melted bees wax.  It is a cute finish.  

I made a start on the 12 days of Christmas.  I am still waiting on my tree and the felt to match the coloured baubles that we purchased so these will probably end up as gifts.  

Mo has shown me pictures of her finished pots and mugs that she has been working on for her Design class.  They have been fired at school and they look fantastic, sound like she has sold most of them at school, a couple of the teachers have already put dibs on some of her items so it doesn't look that I will be getting any of the finished products.  She brought a couple home to plant succulents in which she has been propagating and will take them back for her stall.  Not too sure when the market will be or if we will be able to go with Covid restrictions.  By the sounds of it she will make enough cash to buy some more glazes and pay for some of her wheel set up.

Very pretty finish with the matchbox. And the felt ornaments are really cute. You've made good progress on a couple of fronts. The end of high school is such a busy time. Hard to believe it's been almost 4 years since the SIT graduated. Sounds like Mo is already set to do well with her pottery finishes. Good luck to Maestro on his exams, those are never fun. Happy stitching this week.

Hi. I just found you. Was looking for border ideas and up you came. (Going to order some this week) then found your link to the blog. I'll be popping in from time to time. Have a great day. Oh yes I'm up to take my son to work. LOL
