Kate's 15 Minute Challenge August 9, 2011

I haven't done much this week. Still plodding away at the HSTs, and really, if it weren't for the challenge and knowing I only have to spend 15 minutes doing them, I wouldn't be making any progress on them at all.

Tuesday - trimmed HSTs

Wednesday - put blocks together

Thursday - tied section of antique quilt

Friday - Not ONE blooming thing!

Saturday - Nothing again

Sunday - Nothing again

Monday - Nothing again

See how others have met their challenge by visiting Life in Pieces

I don't have anything worth mentioning on my design wall and nothing has changed on my stash count, so it's not worth posting.

Kate's 15 Minute Challenge for August 2, 2011

I didn't sew a stitch all week. But I did use the 15 minute principle to begin clearing out a kitchen cabinet, and cleaning the kitchen and garage. I guess my focus right now is more on the house than quilting or sewing, though with this heat, I really should be spending more time sitting under air-conditioning. All indications are that we are going to break the 1980 record of 42 consecutive 100 degree days. That year will probably remain as the record of 69 for total number of 100 degree days. I'd just as soon not break either record this year.

(Yeah, it's August, not July)

To see how others are using their 15 Minutes to get things done, visit Life in Pieces.

And my stash report hasn't changed much either, although I did include fabric for both ottomans even though the second isn't finished yet.
