15 Minute Challenge
What a week we had last week Maestro was off school for the whole week with a throat infection, he is still on antibiotics but is pretty much over the worst of it. He is going on school camp next week fingers crossed he doesn't have a relapse while he is away.
The Kitchen reno is going full steam ahead and we have a date for when they will start. Lots of yucky jobs to do before that though like removing all the wallpaper from the walls (something I have wanted to do since we moved in nothing like waiting 15 years). I bought all my appliances yesterday... that was fun can't wait for new oven/cooktop.
My back has improved some more though it is still painful at night, but during the day I don't have any pain and I even went for a long walk with the dog yesterday.
I have managed the 15 minutes quite well this week mainly because of the crocheting which I have been doing for at least an hour each night. Its nearly finished well I have just about run out of wool so it is nearly as big as it is going to get.
I got out my mixed media kit and got a bit messy, Squid joined me which meant I had to clean up twice because she decided to come back and do some more after I'd cleaned her workstation up but she had fun.
I have finished another starburst block and cut out another couple to join the 12 blocks cut. I want the quilt to fit on my queensized bed so I have enlarged the background template by an inch each side so the blocks will be 22" finished instead of 20".
The breakdown goes like this:
Sunday Mixed Media
Tuesday: Crochet - great to do while waiting for footy practice to finish.
Head on over to Kate's to see how everyone went.
