Oh I do like this challenge, crafting for at least 20 minutes! When I come to the end of a housework job I stop and think now what? Have I time? It is only 20 minutes. Yes go on. It is ooonly 20 minutes!! You can fit that in! And I do! The hoover stops where it is, poised ready to start again, while I sit down and craft! A brilliant idea! Thank you marmaladerose for introducing it! So what have I been doing.
Well first on my list was to finish my ripple blanket. One or two more rows and I had to think of how to finish it off. Edging or fringing.
I couldn’t think how to edge it satisfactorily, so I used a whole ball and added a fringe….
Not on the zigzags, but on the sides. Yes I like it. I like the way it hangs down the sides of the bed….
Neatly folded at the foot or spread wide for all to see…
Mum would have loved it! What a great sense of achievement! Yes! YES!
So now what? Hoovering? Well a little, before I sit and relax before the telly! Sketch book in one hand and pens and pencils in the other. Doodle time! Ideas for some cards. One hour later…. yes one hour later… oops I thought I was crafting for 20 minutes(!)… I had six card designs and an idea for something else.
(Sorry it’s a bit dark). The idea? Oh yes, it is something for the Sun Shine School so what better than a sunshine! Sssooo Saturday afternoon saw me trying some embrodery. Not as complicated as Aneela’s but I love her little people and had to try the technique for myself. And oooh I did enjoy it!
Not bad for a first attempt and yes it did take me more than 20 minutes! Now to decide what to do with it and plan out my next 20 minute session. Well I spent another session with my sketch book and came up with this page…
Decisions. Which do I try? Pouch? Gusset bag? Or drawstring? Do I want to tackle a zip? What do you think?
