15 minute challenge - 1st week in December

So this week was a bit of a challenge.  I have a few knitting projects that I realize I can work on during my commute and at work so I did some of that this week.  I also started quilting rocket man, but have become overwhelmed by it and am letting myself be too busy to work on it.  Probably do some tonight.  On Friday, I had a holiday party with my office so that left no crafty time and on Saturday we helped #3 son clean his house, which took all day .. but here's what I did.

Tuesday - put rocket man together
Wednesday - started quilting RM
Thursday - knitting
Friday - NADA
Saturday - knitting
Sunday - knitting
Monday - knitting - finished the first cowl (except for weaving in the ends)

Also, on Sunday, I made fudge (and ate about 1 pound of the five I made) and some homemade laundry soap.  I'll let you know what i think of it after I've used it .. those two things, along with church, watching a small grandchild, laundry, grocery shopping, making dinner, and doing the dishes kept me busy.

Check out Life in Pieces to see how others have done on the 15-minute challenge this week.

Im ignoring the last two borders on the No Frills Quilt too ..Im just a bit over it at the moment.

Sounds like you had an amazingly busy week because I know you squeezed a full work week in there as well.

You had a full week. Hopefully the knitting helped you relax. Good luck with the RM quilt.

I think at least one day off this time of year is expected. I use to knit don't any more I find that my hands cramp up now, would probably be ok if I kept at it but I'd rather be quilting or stitching so decided that I would let that craft go. It would be good to be able to do something on the commute but I have to drive to work.

Wow, you were busy. LOL - I,too, use to eat quite a bit of fudge when I made it. This year I'm opting out so that I can keep to my diet this holiday.


So this weekend, we went to Cuda Ridge to pick up our wine shipment,  They were having their vintage wine release and there were vinta...
