I kept a list this week of my progress so I could give an accurate accounting of my craftiness for Kate's 15 minute challenge linky party. I can't find that list now so I think I threw it out with the rubbish. That's what happens when you do a frenzied tidy up on a Sunday morning so your breakfast guests don't think you live like wild pigs. However, I'm happy to report I managed to spend at least 15 minutes a day doing something crafty every single day this week. I just cant remember what I did when and as I write this post I'm amazed by how little it seems I actually did.
Three more hexie flowers were completed this week. My mother in law saw me doing these on Sunday and has decided to start her own project after Christmas.
5 more selvage blocks were completed and I am about halfway through another 5. Still no squaring up so this looks like a big pile of mess. I swear there are completed blocks in there somewhere.
I finished another sunglasses case for a birthday gift.
Miss Pyjamas pyjamas are just waiting for me to finish the waistband.
And I started this very "simple" sock monkey for Little P which has been a complete pain in the arse. If it's so simple why does mine currently look like a demented 2 legged octopus?
One of the tragedies to befall this poor little monkey-to-be was that I accidentally cut him a butthole and had to perform an emergency butt-hole-ectomy. There's nothing scarier than a monkey with stuffing leaking out of his bum.
I also spent some time this week sorting my stash and coming to the realisation that I don't have as much fabric as I thought I did. Does that sound like a justification to run out and buy some more fabric?
For more 15 minutes of creativity , pop on over to Kate's. I'm thinking I've pushed my "not working on my quilts" phase just about as far as I possibly can and am really going to have to focus on them this week. Eek!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. Enjoy your day and have some turkey for me.
