15-minute challenge - July 19, 2011

Before I start, let me just say that I really enjoy the challenge, on nights when NCIS is calling me to the TV, if I just take 15 minutes, I accomplish something.  Thanks Kate.  To see what others have been up to this week, click here.

Tuesday - two spiderman blocks finished (15 more to go)
Wednesday - two more blocks done
Thursday - two more blocks
Friday - nothing
Saturday - zip
Sunday - more nothing
Monday - four more spidey blocks

Not too bad.  I just need to be more focused.  There actually could be an end in sight for the quilt but I'm really dragging my feet.

I've seen a lot of cool HST blocks lately.  I might have to try my hand at that again.  oh and I also need to get a knitting project for our trip in August.  Any thoughts on what I should knit?? I usually do blankets but i don't know if any of my kids need any more .. hmm.   Of course, it seems like all their friends are having babies so that's probably not a bad idea.  I don't like doing clothes because they need to fit someone.  Scarves are nice and quick, but maybe too quick.  I could do some beanie caps..

I still need to get my Christmas stocking pattern and get that cut out .. I'm a real slackard.

Your round up of the week doesnt make you look like a slackard ..in fact I think you progressed quite a bit.

Im struggling with crafting lately too..I have winter as my excuse. Thats my story and Im sticking to it.

More days crafting then not, so that's a good week. Looking forward to seeing your Spiderman quilt, I saw some of the early blocks and they were really cool looking. Thanks for linking up this week.

go you! I need to get crafty on the road more so I stay away from shopping and going out.

You did great!!! I can´t wait to see that spiderman quilt. And about knitting - why don´t you try a cardigan for yourself - if I can do it, you can do it!!

I love NCIS too and totally agree that the challenge keeps me from just sitting there watching reruns.

Reruns are great! I can work along and not really pay too much attention to the tv. Congrats on getting as much done as you did.

Happy Birthday, MLW II !!

My oldest grandson turned 10 yesterday.  Hard to believe I have a grandson who is that old -- I can remember being 10.  It's crazy. Th...
