15 Minuted Challenge - November 21st

Are you ready?  Because it's only: 
This week it's Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US.  Are you baking or sewing?  Can one bake and sew?  I know I can't.  I'm fortunate that my guy loves to bake and since we long ago learned that two in the kitchen doesn't really work for us, I've abandoned that field to him, and go sew.  Not really a sacrifice, he's a better baker than I am anyway. 

I've been a bit scarce the last week.  It's been frantic and manic at the In Pieces house.  I was out on a 5 day business trip last week. Unfortunately the hotel where I stayed had lousy Internet access, so no emailing or blog reading for me.   Came home on Thursday evening, had enough time to run a couple loads of laundry before we left on Friday for Kiddo's weekend swim meet.  So in the last 7 days, I've been home for 2 of them.  Which clearly shows in the lack of sewing noted on the 15 minute challenge report this week. 

Only 2 of the last 7 days saw any type of sewing room activity.  That's definitely better than nothing.  The Geisha quilt is coming along, I'm almost finished with the sashing.  If I can get the borders on, I may still be able to get it shipped out for quilting in time for it to be a wrapped and under the tree for Christmas.  This week should be a better, even with all the family activities we have planned for Thanksgiving. 

Did you find 15 minutes to be crafty or did life get in the way?   Link up and share how successful you were at carving out time for crafty stuff.

Well, at least you got two days in! That's better than nothing. :)

Been sewing a lot but most of it isn't anything to do with Christmas!

Don't you just love it when you don't have to bake. My daughter is spending this whole week in the kitchen. Guess where I'm going for Thanksgiving. No computer AND no sewing - you poor girl. Let's hope you have a better week this week.

What a bummer that the day job got in the way of sewing this week. I actually started christmas sewing last night better late than never. Hopeful next week will see you back behind the machine.

I'm fluffing round starting new stuff and doing things that don't NEED to be done when I should be making headway on all my unfinished projects. I did manage 7 out of 7 days this week but NONE of it was quilting related.

You're being too hard on yourself Kate. Being away really puts a crimp in crafting creativity. Less stress and more celebrating what you did manage to cram into the week !

(maybe I should take my own advice ???)
