15 Minute Challenge - December 20th

Are you ready?  I'm not.  But then again, I didn't expect to be as I never am.  There is some small comfort in the fact that history does often repeat itself. 

I'm actually doing much better on the sewing front than elsewhere.  The Geisha top is done!  Yeah!  Now just one label and one binding and I'll be done with Christmas gift projects.  I was able to double my time in the sewing room this week.

Early last week was focused on getting day job stuff done before vacation.  It was much easier to find time to sew once the weekend came.  So not a bad week.   Between now and Christmas I'll make time to finish up the last gifts so they can be under the tree, but most of my time will be on Christmas preparations, like wrapping presents and maybe a bit of baking.  

Did you find a few minutes of sanity in your sewing room last week?  If so or if not, let us know how it's going in your part of the world.

Not going to play this week because I really haven't done much in the sewing department, finished a couple of small gifts and have decided to do a couple of quick projects for the kids if I can get a minute. It is going to be stinking hot here this week and heading for 37 (about 100) on Xmas day so it might be good to escape into the sewing room for some of it at least.

Great finish! I'm so glad I didn't overwhelm myself this year with "quilting gifts" and the ones I did make, I finish early. Who knew work was going to be overwhelming right before the holidays! But, it's over now and I hope to be able to finish up my placemats today!! Merry, Merry!
