15 Minute Challenge - November 29th

I'm having a hard time getting my mind around that.  How about you? 

I was off most of last week, but we typically visit My Guy's family for Thanksgiving, so I wasn't home much the last week.  Significant progress was made on the Geisha quilt before I left.  But it couldn't go with me, so the Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks came along for the trip.  Not Christmas sewing, but the handwork was nice to have in the car during the drive. 

Not a bad week, 7 out of 7 days with some type of quilty activity even though it wasn't all Christmas related sewing.  I'm beginning to doubt that the Geisha quilt done in time for Christmas.  If I can get it done by the weekend, maybe.  We'll see if that happens. 

How did you do last week?  Were you able to fit in some sewing along with the baking and family time?  Here's Mr Linky so you can share your crafty successes from last week.

  1. Don't doubt yourself! All you have left is borders! You can do it! :D

  2. I absolutely love the Geisha quilt. Hang in there. You're almost finished. Cute blog header.

  3. What a fantastic week, with all the family and food too! I'm sure you can get the Geisha quilt done.

  4. I want to throw up every time you remind me how fast Christmas is approaching. Im just sayin'.....

    You can knock off the Geisha quilt. Easy. (This from the person who has been avoiding quilt related activity now for weeks )

    7 days of crafty activity deserves a clap. Way to go Kate!

  5. AAAH 25 days can't be right. Haven't even started xmas shopping yet, well I did yesterday and squid found it when she was doing something she shouldn't be doing. I'm getting behind on everything, might have to pull the finger out I think this week. Good effort 7 for 7.

  6. Let me see: up at 6am last Wednesday, chain pieced 200" of string pairs before leaving for mum's; spent from 11am Thursday till midday Monday trapped in Moree due to flooding, returned to mum's and got home last night at 8pm (after going to dinner with WM) - no sewing since Wednesday 23rd! Hoping to do a lot better this week! LOL

  7. Any week that has needle and thread happening on every day is golden to me, Kate! Glad you were able to succeed so well. I haven't done a thing about Christmas except to take down all my fall decorations and get out a Christmas wallhanging and a throw when I was putting away the fall ones :)
