15 Minute Challenge

Kate has brought back the 15 minute challenge a bit differently.  We only report twice a month which is fine.

I really haven't been trying even though I have done something every day for the last 2 weeks, its amazing what happens when a few things slow down, especially the day job and then I feel like doing some stitching in the evening.

Achievements this month: I haven't actually finished anything major but have moved along on a couple of ongoing projects and started a X Stitch.

  1. Started new Blackbird Xstitch which is inspired by the anniversary of the Beatles appearing on a TV show in the US.  I have 3 patterns and I have started on Elinor Rigby because I had suitable colours in the thread stash to start.
  2. Finished half the flying geese blocks to finish my appliqué quilt
  3. Finished cutting out Metro Twist Quilt
  4. Finished 1 block for the Chocolate Marshmallow Sampler (only 5 more to go).  Hoping to report all the blocks finished next time. 
  5. Finished Class samples for a class to be taught but looks like the class will be cancelled, but shop will purchase patterns so not all is lost.  
You can join the linky party here.

That Beatles stitchery project sounds really interesting. You've made a lot of progress and it's just mid-month.

Im impressed by your progress Amanda. It sounds like lots of things are partially completed, and well on the way to being done. What a pity about the cancelled class.

I completely agree that when work slows down there is left over energy at the end of the day to still be creative. I love it when that happens.
