15 Minute Challenge Getaway Planning and School Holidays

It is the offical start of the school holidays, though Mo only went to "school" for 1 and a bit days last week.  The one full day was spent checking out the 2 city Uni campuses.  Both are within walking distance of each other and at the moment she is thinking she likes the facilities at Uni SA and is interested in one of the Art Courses they have there.  A lot can happen in 12 months but she is going to do Art in year 12 that is probably the only subject she is firm on.

This week was another 7 out of 7 for stitching.  A couple of those days were only 15minutes others were a lot longer.  My left index finger is starting to show a bit of wear and tear when the needle keeps sticking it.

I'm down the to flowers on Block 9 and last night because I didn't want to go and pull fabrics for flowers I started doing the leaves on Block 4.  I'll sort out flowers fabric tonight to get Block 9 squared away and then start working on Block 4 with a vengeance.

There is only 9 sleeps until I head down the coast with my quilting buddies for our sewing retreat.... can't wait.  I have finalised what projects I am going to take.  I am hoping that Block 4 will be completed enough so that I can work on putting the blocks together or at the very least start on the filler blocks.  I have to hit EQ to start on the big border design once again but its pretty well plotted in my head.

I also need to take Green Tea and Sweet Beans as I am behind in that and their is another month's kit coming this week so I need to do a catchup.

I'm still having a sale on all my past BOM in my Etsy Shop for another week all patterns half priced.

So how did your sewing go get your daily 15min in.  Head to Kate's to see how everyone got on.

Great job being 7/7 this week! Love that you just worked where you were at in the green leaves. Hope your plan works out well. A retreat sounds like a blast!

Hope the college kid and the high school kid are enjoying their breaks and not driving you too nuts. You've been doing really well on finding time to stitch the last few weeks. A quilting retreat with buddies sounds like a lot of fun. Hopefully you can get all the work stuff and the prep stuff done in time to really enjoy the time away.
