July is always a happy month for me. My birthday is this month and my wedding anniversary is this month. I'm on track with my quilting goals. Plus this month the number of blogging buddies who follow this blog has reached and exceeded 50. So a Christmas in July give away seemed to be an appropriate way to celebrate. This is the first give away I've done, so I'm starting small. There are 3 Christmas fabric charm packs up for grabs.
The charms are Moda Flurry by Kate Spain, Moda Grace by 3 Sisters and Moda Fa-la-la-la-la by French General.
So what do you have to do to have a chance at a charm pack? Since this is the 15 Minute Challenge day, write a comment that discusses your biggest barrier to finding time to sew and ways (if any) you've found to deal with it. I'll pick 3 winners using a random number generator and each will get one charm pack. I'll post the winners next Tuesday.
So how did you do on managing your sewing time this last week? I actually did pretty well considering how much we had going on this weekend, managing at least 15 minutes of sewing room time every day the over the last 7 days.
Most of my time went to cutting out the pieces for the Flurry quilt. But I also wanted to get back on track dealing with some other sewing room chores such as scanning new fabrics into the computer, pressing washed fabric and cutting up left over fabric scraps into for some as yet unidentified scrap quilt project. I try to spend a few minutes at the start of my time in the sewing room catching up on one of those chores.
