Happy Valentines Day! My sweetie is up North in Wyoming, so our celebration is slated for later this week. Drama Teen and I have plans for a special Valentines Edition of Girls Night Out once swim practice is over tonight.
To be honest, I've been dreading today a bit. My sewing mojo was pretty nonexistent last week. Even the threat of having to fess up to my slothfulness wasn't enough to motivate me to enter the sewing room, even for just 15 minutes. So my report looks pretty pathetic.
No sewing related activity until Saturday, when I finally decided to clean up and reorganize my sewing room. Sunday and Monday I did do some work on the McCall's Mystery Quilt, but overall a pretty wasted week on the sewing front. Hopefully I can get back on track this week and make some progress on both the February UFO and The Fat Quarter Stars block that's supposed to be done today.
On to the more interesting stuff, the winner of last week's give away for the charm packs and the Back to Charm School book is

Congratulations Kate! Kate is a regular participant in the 15 Minute Challenge. You should check out Kate's Felt Food Friday posts. She's been creating a whole feast for her little "Dude".
How do you get into the mood to sew? Do you ever have days, weeks, months, where the idea of getting into your sewing room doesn't appeal? I know sometimes we all need a break and maybe that's what last week was. The Life in Pieces crew does lead a pretty activity intensive lifestyle around here, so often my time in the sewing room is right at bed time and I'm already tired.
So while I look for my motivation, I'd like to encourage yours. It's one more week closer to March 6th, the 66 day mark. Which is the time, on average, that most people need to make a new activity a habit. This week the give away is 4 fat quarters and a pattern from Patterns by Annie called "Necessories".
A little wallet with the blue print and the orange dots would be so cute.
So link up with how you did on finding 15 minutes to sew last week. Remember your post needs the words "15 Minutes Challenge" somewhere in the title or text and a list of some type that notes what you did on the sewing/craft front during the previous 7 days.
