15 Minute Challenge

Nearly forgot this morning to do this.  It is a glorious day today and I have to go to work :(.  Really should be going in early to catch up on some stuff but that doesn't look like it is going to happen because I just feel like taking it easy.

Stitching time has been fitting around school holiday activities and yesterday it was the ironing pile from hell.  Most of my stitching time has also been taken up with pattern writing as well which I count towards these activities because otherwise somedays might be a bit bare.

I woke up thinking about the Sweet Sixteen again this morning and how amazing it would be to own one, however yesterday I pretty much decided we can't afford to purchase it, unless I was prepared to quilt other peoples quilts to pay for it.  Which I could do but I doubt I would get enough business to pay the thing off.  In the meantime I'll go in every raffle I see and buy a couple of x-lotto tickets.

I apologise for the picture did this on the run this morning.  Some of my clams are looking a bit sick after a dunking in hot chocolate and a quick wash.  I am fixing them up as I stitch them down the last row is still only glue baste.  I promise they will look like clam shells when it is done.

The week kinda went like this.

Wednesday: Pattern writing
Thursday: Pattern writing
Friday: Pattern writing
Saturday: Appliqué the centre medallion of Lancaster Quilt, fabric shopping for project to be completed later in the year.
Sunday: Secret Squirrel work for November project.  Prototype complete yippee
Monday: AMQF lots of shopping and centre medallion again.
Tuesday: Pattern writing

Head on over to Kate's to see who else has met the challenge this week.

Your clams look beautiful, even with the hot chocolate bath (that had to be one of those moments when you felt really, really sick at your stomach).

Any quilty progress counts, so you had a great week.
