15 Minute Challenge and some Me Time

 We only spent a couple of hours this week at Maestro's place and it wasn't too bad this time  though he is still pushing to get things done, some which just couldn't happen.  He is doing TAFE (trade school) at the moment as well as working so his time is limited.  Work want him to finish all his modules in the next couple of months.

I've worked on a few more blocks from my Hatched and Patched Quilt but there was a couple of days missed.  

This weekend I did a class at the local yarn shop with Shelley Husband.  The class was quite nice though a bit short, I'm use to all day classes.  

On Sunday I went to FibreFeast which is a market for all things yarn and fibre and happens once a year.  
The green block is using some of the wool I purchased which is Poll Merino and is super soft and has a lovely drape.  I'm going to make an infinity scarf from it.  Don't ask me what I am going to do with the rest I don't know but I had to get them.  

Mo has been experimenting with cup shapes, she has been doing this petal shape which is quite nice to drink out off.  She is obsessed with white clay and hasn't been able to get clay white enough without going to porcelain which is hard to work with.  She was advised to underglaze with white to get the effect she wants and it worked.

Your yarn squares look so intricate, very pretty. Grad Girl and I have talked about learning to knit or crochet, but I've told her I already have a fabric stash, if I started buying yarn, I'd end up with a whole other stash. So I'm resisting, but it's hard when I see you pretty projects. The cup is really cute. It's fun to see how Mo's artwork is evolving. Hope you were able to get in more stitching time this week.
