    They are supposed to be scraps, but I don't have scraps in these colors OBVIOUSLY!
    I LOVE scrap quilts, so tell me! Why don't I have these kinds of scraps.
    Oh! I'll bet I KNOW why!
    It is because I don't separate out my scraps by color - - hmmm -- lesson learned?

    I need to do that again-I made a baby quilt for my niece by sewing only 15-20 minutes every morning and I had it done it about 2 months-thanks for the challenge. Now that I am retired, I should be able to find 15 minutes to do a bit of sewing.

    15 minutes means I could oil my machine or change a needle. May I have more time, mistress?

    OK I'm in. I need something to motivate me. I work from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and once I sit down at night I usually 'zone out' and do nothing but watch the boob tube!

    Except now I spend hours on this board and linking from it to websites. I spent 4 hours last night watching TV and jumping from tute to tute! I could have finished a couple of Christmas gifts!

    Keep me accountable folks!

    If I would commit to ONLY 15 minutes a day, my house would be a lot cleaner.

    I need to commit to at least 15 minutes a day. I have a quilt to finish hand quilting before Christmas.

    Glad to see so many enthusiasts. I got my 15 minutes in before I had my almost 3 year old twin grandsons for the afternoon. Good thing I did it earlier because we took them for a walk on the trails and then to the mall to see all the decorations and I am done!

    Omak, not a bad idea about the challenge buddy.


    Today I got a table runner cut out and pulled fabrics for the next one. Tomorrow I hope to get a baby quilt sandwiched.

    I'm in that's how I clean my house, except it's 15 at a time. A little here, a little there it gets done.

    I did my 15 minutes last night. I have to put everything back into my sewing room because of it being carpeted so I'm going through everything before it goes back. Not in shape to sew yet, but hopefully soon. It's been way too long (since May) for all the renovation in the house!!

    I'm with you! I've been using this technique for years. I set the timer, and treat myself to 'me' time. This also works great for housework, cleaning out drawers, closets, etc. I call it the 5,10,15 minute rule.... if it can be done it that amount of time , I do it. it's amazing how easy it becomes , keeping on top of the housework.....

    I did a bunch of 15 minutes last night, and started today out the same way.
    I am online for awhile and then will go back to "work"

    I am going to commit to this as well! Life has hit me hard and I have let my quilting slide off of my priority list and I am trying so hard to get it back because it is my sanity!

    Welcome aboard!
    It is amazing what we can accomplish if we quit looking at the BIG picture and work on one bit of it at a time.
    You will see!

    I spent 15 minutes about 8 times last night! But, I was just 'straightening' things up as they were a mess. I haven't done much since my auto accident in August and I'm way behind! Had an MRI today, hopefully it won't be anything more serious than pulled muscles and ligaments!

    I can actually find the various presser feet I had just tossed in the drawer and located FIVE seam rippers ... I wondered where those went and found THREE sets of marking pencils! My cutting table is now ready to go, I have one handbag cut out and am ready to start sewing tonight! It feels GOOD!!

    Just one thing though, all those tutes I've been printing out? They are all piled up in a mess on the 'other' side of the sewing room. I figure I can organize those while I watch TV.

    I've been complaining about having no time to quilt, so let's see if 15 minutes/day makes a difference. I'm in!

    I am definitely IN! I have been so busy with everything else, that quilting has fallen through the cracks. But no more - I need my sanity back, and since quilting is the quickest way to achieve that, 15 minutes is not too much to ask.
