I had two sick children at home with me today, it meant some DVD watching and washing being FINALLY folded as I tended to the sick and needy. I also managed to get some stitching time in, completing my hottie cover for the 2013 Hottie Challenge. All the hottie covers will be exhibited at Open Drawer, Art, Textiles and Learning Centre. Once the exhibition is over all the hottie covers get donated to the Margaret Pratt Foundation that raises funds for supporting people who have had heart and lung transplants, cool huh?

I don't know why I came up with this design! I was thinking of crocheting a green base and sewing a bunch of crochet flowers all over it, like a crochet garden. Then one night when I was almost asleep this idea popped into my head. It's a bit crazy, but the sick children agreed they would both like one! The best part was I didn't buy a single thing to make it. Stash busting at it's best.

Some hotties have already been finished, check out this post to see some. It's not too late to enter if you too would like to donate a hottie cover too, you can find all the details here.
