15 Minute Challenge

I finally got up the courage this past week to 'square up' my Grandmother's Flower Garden so that I can add borders.  I'm still auditioning fabrics and deciding how many, how wide, finished size, etc. etc.  I'm not in too much of a hurry.  I've tentatively set a finish goal of March 2012.  Doesn't that sound like a long way off?

For those who haven't been following along, I finished another block on the 501 Project.  It can be seen here.

And I started and finished a crochet pineapple doily called Pineapple Blossom from Leisure Arts Little Book #75013.  I had a difficult time with the first few rows but after that it was pretty easy.

To see how others did on their 15 Min Challenge, visit Kate at Life in Pieces.

Hope you have a good day.

the doily is beautiful! I haven't tried that yet. Don't think I'll get to that this year, but maybe next .. another thing for my to do list.

Your grandmother's Flower Garden is beautiful! Congrats on getting the courage to square it off! Your doily is beautiful too.

Love your bright GFG! I like this week's report too, very cute. The dolly is gorgeous too. You've been very busy! Good for you!

Do you really mean that doily wasn't too difficult? Seriously? Because I may have to try that someday!

And I love the Christmas look!

I am sure March will be here in no time. Love the grandmothers flower garden and the doily is just lovely I don't think I would have the concentration for the doily project though.

Both projects are beautiful! The doily reminds me of my abuela. She was always making doilies with pineapples in them.
