It's been a year since I challenged myself to spend a minimum of 15 minutes every day in my sewing room. It started as a month long challenge to myself because my projects weren't moving along at a pace to meet my goals. That challenge to myself made a big difference in my ability to get projects to completion. What I learned last week is that sometimes taking a break from the challenge is also necessary in order to keep up your enthusiaism. This week's report reflects a renewed energy.
A total of 6 out of 7 days isn't bad. In addition to what's on the report, I also roughed out a quilt layout for a new scrap project that I hope to start before the end of the month.
Moving on to the more exciting stuff. The winner of the "Necessories" pattern and fat quarters is:

We've reached day 52 of the 66 days the experts claim it takes, on average, for someone to develop a new habit. This week's motivation to stick with the challenge is likely to give you some thoughts on new projects to ignight your ethusiaism
I've not made a jelly row quilt yet, but Strip-Smart Quilts by Kathy Brown has me wanting too and Redwork with a Twist by Pat Sloan had me pulling out some completed embroidery blocks to consider what might be done with them. So it's time for you to link up and share how ethusiastic you were last week about spending 15 mintues a day sewing/crafting. A quick reminder, to be eligable for the give-away, the post you link up must have "15 Minute Challenge" somewhere in the title or text of the post and a "report" of what you did with your 15 minutes each day you sewed. It can be as simple as a list, or as complex as a photo collage.
