5 in 5 - Melanie - August 2014

Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography. Every month Melanie has taken part in this monthly neme and we managed to find a way round her not having a blog by posting here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part so once again Melanie, a big thank you, and over to you:

A cold August day and my camera has not left the house.  Instead I gathered a few of the projects which I am currently working on and asked them to pose for the camera.  So here they are.  Top right is a very long term project.  I have lost count of how many years ago I begun this cross stitch.  It has seen me through several hospital visits, mainly when my father had been taken ill but also there was a time when I visited a family friend in hospital then last year it kept me occupied while I stayed with my daughter who was recovering from a broken neck.  Maybe I should finish it then perhaps there would never be anyone else to visit in hospital.  The middle top photo is a card making project which should be finished tomorrow as the cards are needed for two nephews that will be having birthdays in a couple of weeks.  The top right hand photo is a cot quilt project which should be finished before the end of the month as my grandson is now in a cot and waiting for the cot to have a quilt.  My grandson is also waiting for the crocheted jumper in the bottom left hand side photo to be finished as if it doesn’t get finished soon he will be too big to fit into it.  Then my final photo is of a pair of applique pieces that I intend to turn into chair back covers. 

If this has inspired you to take part in this challenge you have until 25th before the link closes. It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give any other information that you need.
Thank you to Melanie and everyone else who has joined in or left comments. Links for this months posts are here and hopefully I'll be back with more photos from Melanie and myself next month. I hope you will join me!
