Kate at Life in Pieces is holding a "15 minutes" challenge. If you haven't checked it out you should -because it's a sure fire way to get you being crafty every day or every couple of days, or how ever often you choose.
I did quite well this week. Tuesday-I cut and started making the binding for "Saturday with Sara".
I tried to make sense of the Paper Piece QAL directions. Patterns and I are not friends.This is what instructions look like to me which is why I never work from an actual pattern.
現在，您可以重複步驟 所有其他件描圖紙（如果我有一個 4塊被子，我就這樣做，但如果我有塊被子，我按照下面的方法），也可以行約件描圖紙（“茶多酚“現在 的我已經厭倦了打
Wednesday I finished the binding ready to go on the quilt
Thursday - I cut the quilt to size.
Friday- I sewed the binding on to the quilt and called it finished. Yay!
Saturday-I did some stitching and started a new project
Sunday-I finished sewing the rows of the zig zag quilt together.
And had another look at the QAL instructions which now look like this ...
Bəziləri yalnız cant nümunələri oxumaq və ya təlimatlara əməl edin. Bu doesnt onları pis insanlar etmək .I'm planning to wait for the instructions to appear to me in a language I actually understand.
Monday-I realised at 6.10 pm that tracing paper and freezer paper are NOT the same thing. Some minor swearing occurred and I planned to get tracing paper in my lunch break today. Ultimately I decided to use baking paper and see how it goes. I'm calling that 15 minutes because I worried about it for the next hour and then went and cleaned my oven ...this occurs annually so it was well past due. (Bicarb and vinegar works a treat in case you're interested and wont burn the living crap out of your hands if you touch it like commercial cleaners)
So not a bad week in all. A quilt finish, two stitcheries done, the start of a new project and lots of thinking about the QAL . How did you do with your 15 minutes?
PS. Becks took pity on me and posted video tutorials on how to paper piece....Hallelujah! Maybe this quilt will actually get done after all!
PPS. Im not hopeful that much stuff will get done on a daily basis this week since I have visiting royalty coming on Thursday.
