15 Minute Challenge & Not Much To Show

The week of teeth is over. Turns out Maestro's tooth ache was caused by a bad mouth ulcer where his wisdom tooth was rubbing on his cheek.  He doesn't have to have them out unless the ulcers become problematic.  He did make an appointment for a check with our regular dentist which he has been avoiding for a couple of years.  I'll leave it to her to nag him now that he is a big boy, my nagging has just been ignored.  

Its my birthday next weekend and I bought myself a wooden ball-winder and picked up a book for a CAL Sophie's Universe which I have admired for a while and didn't realise there was a book.  Don't know when I will start but it looks fun and pretty every row is different, there are lot so colour options to choose from.

I have made 6 Asterales flower centres and need to finish the borders on 4 of them.  Have decided that I won't be making the blanket very big and will just stick to 3 x 3 and put a border round them.  Couple more rows to go on this one, but I need to look at the video help for the next row.  

I made a transferred a few small flower motives to the linen and have started stitching.  I have asked Mo for another sketch but it is a bit low on the priority at the moment so I am fill in time with small embroideries which will probably be the centres of some pieced stars.  

That's it for me this week I think it was a 4 out 7 this week really wasn't enthused to do to much.

4/7 is better than nothing. Slow progress is still progress.
I did the 15 minute challenge a couple of years ago and I was amazed at what I managed to achieve. Keep at it.

"The week of teeth"? Sounds expensive. At least you made some progress on a few projects, some weeks that's the best you can hope for. Happy Birthday a bit early, hopefully the family has plans to pamper you a bit for that. Happy stitching this week.
