15 Minute Challenge - November 27th

One day back at work and an evening of helping Drama Teen with her science fair project pretty much wiped out the relaxed haze from the Thanksgiving weekend.  Now it's back to business as usual, except now there is also stuff that has to be done to get ready for the Christmas holiday.  I enjoy getting ready for Christmas, I just wish there was more time to fit it all in.   Thankfully most of the family shopping is done and all I need to do is get a few things for My Guy and DT. 

The Thanksgiving holiday was absolutely perfect for sitting down with some thread and an embroidery hoop.  I did get a few hours to work on the sewing machine, but most of last week was spent working on a embroidered panel which will be the center of a medallion quilt when it's finished. 

I made good use of my Thanksgiving break, working on quilt related projects for 6 out of the last 7 days.  Wednesday was spent baking and making other preparations for the holiday.  Even so it was a really good week.  I need a few more of those over the next couple of months as there are projects for DT's middle school teachers that need to be done by next May.  That will be here before I know it. 

I'm not working on any projects as Christmas gifts, so I'm not working under any immediate deadlines.  How about you?  Are you trying to finish up a few Christmas gifts?  Are you finding/making 15 minutes a day to make some progress?  Link up and share how your Christmas sewing is going.

Glad to hear you had a happy (and productive) Thanksgiving. Still have a few Christmas presents to work on, but I'm almost rebelling against them right now...or perhaps it's all of the Christmas decorations around my neighborhood...I'm trying to wait until at least it's December before the decorations go up!

You did a great job getting handwork done over the holidays! I'm trying not to stress about Christmas - I just have some doll dresses to do, so it should be easy. Should be!

Good week, even with Thanksgiving! How smart of you to have some hand work around on such a busy weekend. I do have some Christmas projects that I haven't even started... If I would just get to them. The 15 minutes a day is the key.

You had a good stitching week. I am quilting one last gift but I don't know if I will give it for Christmas or the baby shower yet!

I unfortunately don't have any sewing skills ... but I do need to attach a button back onto my cute fingerless glove/mitten combo. I wore them for the first time this season and it popped right off. :(
