15 Minute Challenge

Even though I've done a lot of sewing this week, I don't have much to show for it.  I finished the one pillowcase and am mostly through with a second one but I ran out of  floss.  I finished quilting and joining the second section of the Brown/Tan/Green (BTG) quilt.  Most of the sections have been sewn together awaiting sandwiching, quilting and joining.  I still need to make 4 more brown blocks and 4 more green blocks to make up the last section.  If you look closely you'll see that I've been placing the blocks green, brown, green, brown.  When those are pieced and sewn together, I'll have 5 sections left to be quilted.  Here's what it looks like so far:

I tried to crop this photo so that only the quilt showed but I've been having problems with Windows Live Photo Gallery for the past day or so.  When I crop a photo, it disappears.  I've searched and searched for where it might have gone without much luck.  However, when I try to name another photo the same name as the 'lost' one, it tells me that there's already a photo by that name.  Where??  Very frustrating.  I have to look into it further.

To see how others did on their 15 Minute Challenge this week, visit Kate at Life In Pieces.

Hope you had a good day.

You get the gold star for being the most consistent with the 15 minutes a day. You usually manage 7 out of 7 days, which is pretty impressive.

I hate dispearing files. Have you tried opening the file from the program? When I got Vista, it took me ages to realize that I could open the files in the program, but if the files were not saved to "my documents", Vista would ignore them.

Thanks for linking up this week.
