Challenges Report #3

Well for Dottie Angel's Challenge I have three items:
Wrist warmers from a ripped out knitting project of Sos'- her knitting had gathered dust for two years, but she really likes the wrist warmers.
Re-purposed item; we needed a coffee table so when its not snowing, we have one!
I found this paper bag in the rubbish, aren't the colours lovely? Just right for a quilt! So I kept it.
And now the Creative Every Day Challenge:
Do you know Whitney Houston's song 'One Moment in Time'? The words are amazing (as is her voice, I think) but the ones i often hold before me are these:
Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away....
...When I'm racing with destiny...
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity.
Don't those words make you all tingly?!
Watching goldfish is one of life's pleasures, well that and teasing the dogs. If you have ever spent time with fish you'll know what I mean- if you haven't you won't! My family all think the goldfish are a waste of space but I know better.
Do goldfish answer back?
Do they moan and grizzle?
Do you trip over them when they want something?
Do they whine in the night or bark at the moon?
See? Goldfish are good!
Lavender and Orange oil in the burner...aaah!
Making cushion covers from velvet scraps, gorgeous!
(no photo, for obvious reasons) Burnt, purple, bean children said I should give the recipe to our local builder as being an Eco alternative to commercial cement...For that I made them eat it!
It was gross...

I fixed a dish once my family still refers to as "gruel" and not in a nice way! Yeah, I made them eat it too!!

Lovely post. It is very comforting to see that other people's coffee tables carry the same kind of piles as ours.
