15 Minute Challenge

here's how the week turned out ..

Tuesday - cut out pieces for sewing kits.
Wednesday - nothing
Thursday - started quilting blue elephants
Friday - nothing
Saturday - "organized" stash AGAIN
Sunday - quilted 8 lines of blue elephants
Monday - nothing (received fabric for Katie's make up kits; looked through bag books)

Not a bad week.  I guess I actually only sewed two days.  I now have some bags I need to work on and I also need to practice working on zippers so I'm going to try the triple zip bag first. 

my goals for the rest of this week / weekend are as follows:

1 - READ DIRECTIONS

1.5 - cut out fabric for Katie's bags

2 - READ DIRECTIONS

2.5 - cut out fabric for triple zip

3 - get zippers

4 - make triple zip

5 - make sample of Katie's bags

6 - make sock monkey

The emphasis on reading directions has to do with 1) the crayon rolls where I cut the fabric the wrong width because I didn't read the directions carefully enough and 2) some cookies I made recently .. without flour.

Anyway, check in at Life In Pieces and see how others met the challenge this week.

Sometimes you have to do those "non-sewing" things to be able to sew later.

If it makes you feel any better, I once made cookies without enough butter, I completely missed the 1 in front of the 3/4 cup. DT called them hockey pucks and to be honest that was being kind.

I recently made a cake without eggs ...maybe you caught forgetfulness from me!

Looks like a good week even though you didn't do a lot of actual sewing. I still see quite a bit of creativity in your list!

LOL, I need to read and reread directions before I start anything too. Did the cookies look odd when you were making them?

Quite often I don't read the directions right, its so easy to get it wrong sometimes. I think Fabric fondling counts in my book.

Sounds like a good week. I love reorganizing my fabric.
