15 Minute Challenge

As already reported this week I finished the big quilt.  Today at sewing it got basted.  Thursday I plan to start quilting.

I have to admit though I had 2 sewing free days. Sunday after the market I was bushed (who would have thought doing nothing would be tiring).  I was going to take my hexagons to sew but thought I would be too busy to bother so I didn't... how wrong I was.  And Monday was dog obedience with Coco.. there was a minor accident and my right had was a little sore so I didn't do any sewing.

While I was at sewing today I grabbed a few more Cosmo threads to add to my collection.  Tonight I will be winding these on my floss cards and putting them in their right place in my floss box.... I like them in numerical order.  Also bought some yummy fabric, and added a few extra cosmo threads to match... don't know yet what it is going to be but I am sure I will come up with something.

If I get my act into gear tomorrow I will be launching a couple of new patterns and there will be a giveaway.

Head on over to Kate's to see who else met the challenge.

Love the look of the Cosmos. I've never seen them in the flesh, no shops I go to stock them. I should order a few to have a look. Everyone who uses them loves them don't they. Also can't wait to see your quilt finished!

Love your floss colors! I've just started 'collecting'. I'd love to have mine organized in numerical order. Perhaps I should just start.

Congrats on getting the big quilt done. Love the colors of your Cosmo thread, very vibrant selection. Even with 2 sewing free days, looks like you got a lot done on the remaining 5.
