15 Minute Challenge - January 31st

My Guy and I were off yesterday.  Most of the day was spent on sewing, with a few loads of laundry here and there thrown in.  So it was a nice day.  Today it's back to work.  Today is also Tuesday so it's time to look back and see how well you did at finding time to quilt or do some other art/craft activity over the last 7 days.  I didn't have a bad week, considering we had an away swim meet over the weekend.

I need to figure out how to fit in some hand piecing at the meets. It's hard on Saturdays because the stands are usually pretty crowded.  Even so, I managed to find at least 15 minutes to sew 5 out of the last 7 days.  I guess technically last Tuesday wasn't sewing, but I did drive to Tulsa to take a quilting class. Since it will help me with finishing up quilts, I'm counting it. 

I mentioned a give away for the end of February in my last post.  I'm still refining the details of that.  I hope to have all the logistics worked out by next week's post. I don't mean to be a tease, but what I had wanted to do isn't easily managed, so I need to rethink a few things.   

So how did you do last week on finding time to exercise your creativity muscles?  Write a post and link up.

Great job, Kate! A quilt-as-you-go project would be great for hand sewing at meets. I usually took some to ballgames when I had kids at home playing ball. :)

I take my hexes to tennis practice with my son (don't take them to matches though). I have my bag packed with the pieces already to piece. Great week of sewing regardless, and a quilt class does count.

good job~!
i could never have managed this challenge while i was raising my daughter. just too distracted and unorganized at that time. i really admire that you get so much done as well as encourage all of us to do the same~!!~

You're doing really well.
It's cool and rainy here today so a perfect excuse to be in the sewing room!

Great job Kate! I need to find another takealong too. I'm pretty much snowflaked out.

Pat said...

Sorry Kate. I made a boo-boo when I linked the first time.

Great week for you! I didn't link up this week because I'm such a slacker ..

I've recently started keeping a hand sewing project ion my living room so I can do some for those nights where I don't feel like sewing by machine. It means I can grab it as I walk out the door as well and take it with me ...It's a good use of time .

Popping over to have a look at your mystery project now. (I've been remiss the last few days with blog comments- guess who came to stay over Wednesday !)

You did well again. I didn't do as well as since we were changing it up mode at the store. Makes life fun!
