15 Minute Challenge - May 1st

I've come to really enjoy the first of the month.  There is so much to look forward to.  So Scrappy has posted yellow as the scrap color for May.  So it's time to find 2 or 3 yellow scraps to make a few more coffee cup blocks.  Judy over at Patchwork Times has drawn the #2 as this month's UFO project.  That UFO hasn't been touched since I took the class where it was started in 2005.  Only one block ever got finished, so it will be almost like starting a whole new quilt.  Come to think of it, I've not started anything new since February.  To link up with Cat Patches' NewFO Challenge this month a new project is needed.  Maybe Drama Teen's Jigsaw quilt or the Angel quilt will manage to make it out of the planning stage to the construction stage this month. 

I've been doing much better the last couple of weeks in finding some time to sew.  Last week I managed 7 days, this week only 6 days. 

Still 6 days is pretty good.  I didn't feel like sewing on Wednesday, the fever associated with the sinus crud I had last week pretty much kept me in bed that day.  I'm feeling much better this week. Unfortunately, it may be challenging to get in sewing every night this week.  Drama Teen has a couple of events that may run late.  We'll just have to see if I can still work in my 15 minutes on those  two nights.

How did you do last week?  Were you driven to finish some things up since it was the end of the month or did you just give up and are hoping that May will be better?  Which ever it is, write up a post and link up.

Given how ill you felt for a lot of last week I'd say 6 days out of 7 was a pretty good effort!

It feels great though when the motivation is running along well doesn't it?

I got about an hour in this week - so at least I am heading back into the quilt room. Maybe by next week, I can show more progress!

You're wearing me out just reading your projects for May. Hope you're able to find time to work on them.

I think you have done well this past week. I'd be happy with 6 out of 7 days.

You did great with 6 out of 7 days. I've given up on any sewing for the time being. Too chaotic & messy here right now. So I'm enjoying seeing the projects you are doing.
