Thanks to the magnificent Kate for hosting another week of the 15 minute challenge. I'm posting early this week, although it's Tuesday here already. In case I haven't mentioned this in the last 5 minutes I'm going away this week so Im working against the clock.
It's been a reasonably good week for sewing at Maison Pyjamas. I've gone fabric basket crazy. You may recall my disastrous attempt last week. Not to be beaten by fabric and bad mojo I went ahead and tried again. I'm happy to report success.

A little bit of quilting happened on the Blue and Brown Quilt. I have a lot more to do ! I'm making this a priority after I get back from holidays.
I started a new stitchery from one of Michelle's patterns.
I played with some selvages.
And the Merry Go Round quilt got quite a workout. Getting to this stage was not without a significant amount of unpicking and quite a bit of swearing. I had a case of "everything I touch turns to s***" on Sunday.
Can anyone else see where I managed to stuff up?
Discovering I had sewed them together upside down did not thrill my heart.
Unpicking is not my favourite thing this week. Neither was realising I was 9 blocks short when I thought I was finished with the block making! Hopefully my relationship with this quilt will be repaired by a little "absence makes the heart grow fonder" therapy.
Current tally on the "7 quilts finished before the end of the year" deal:
1 ready to be quilted (by me )
1 in the process of being quilted by me
2 ready to be quilted (by the quilting guru )
Lots of progress on the Merry Go Round Quilt this week
No progress on the poor Hourglass Quilt (sorry Thea!)
