15 Minute Challenge - January 17th

What a difference a week makes.  I did really well last week finding 15 minutes to sew most nights, but not this week. 

Only 3 nights out of 7 saw any activity in my sewing room.  Tuesday and Wednesday night were taken up with helping Drama Teen get her science fair project ready.  Thursday night was busy with science fair parent night and stuff for the swim meet.  Friday we all volunteered at the swim meet.  It was so late when we got home from dinner we all went straight to bed. I did find some time over the weekend and last night to finish up block 7 for the FQS quilt along and get block 8 almost cut out.  Some nights I'm just not going to be able to find those 15 minutes due to other commitments.  Unfortunately last week had 3 of those nights.  How do you manage to find your "me time" on nights where you have other commitments? 

This week should be much calmer.  Especially since I seem to have come down with a nasty cold and plan to head back to bed once I'm done with this post. 

So how did you do with finding time to sew, knit, embroider, scrapbook, or other art/craft fetish over the last 7 days?  Please share your success or set backs by linking up below.

  1. Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of fun? lol Hope that cold doesn't hit you too hard. It's a doozy!

  2. Hope you feel better soon. At least your header picture matches with the weather that came barreling from the north.

  3. considering how busy your life sounds i think you pretty well~!
    sometimes i steal time while getting from one place to the next as i live in a rural area and don't actually drive myself. sometimes there just aren't enough hours/minutes/seconds in a day~!!~

    hope you feel better soon.


  4. Hope you feel better soon, nothing worse than a cold!

  5. Ooo, hope you feel better soon!

  6. Hope you get lots of sleep and feel better soon Kate. Some weeks just dont have a lot of time left for sewing .

    This week was a ripper for me. Perhaps having a ton of free time is helping !

  7. Thanks for the 15 min challenge!! It is helping to keep me focused!!!

  8. err...is anyone else having problems with blogger? I can see some reports and others come up for a flash and then go white...maybe it's me or really my computer....liz
