15 minute challenge update

This was my first week of the 15 minute challenge and I wanted to make progress on a cross stitch which had been sitting around on the frame for way too long.
 I started the week with this

and ended it with this
it is probably the most progress I have made in a long time. I am actually hoping I might even get it finished this year if I keep going at the rate I am progressing. I didn't work on it every day either but I did find once I got started on it I would usually spend more than 15 minutes on it, it was just the getting started that helped. Don't forget to pop over to  Life In Pieces to see how others are doing with their 15 minute challenges.

2013: The Year of the Finished Project – July edition

I really want to try and get back on track with my crafting. I have started doing the 15 minute challenge to get my cross stitch finished (and I have been making good progress with it too!)
but there are a few other things I would like to finish this month too. So I am joining in with the
 2013: The Year of the Finished Project

I need to bind this quilt

and this one

I need  to finish this bag

and make progress on this

I need to replace the top flap on this bag

and catch up on the Hello Moon Quilt-along

Then there are a couple of things I want to start on too, but I'll show you pictures of them after they are started.

I got some work done on my cross stitch and I can actually see the progress!
Hopefully it won't take as long as I thought to finish!

Getting back on track

I have been a bit busy with getting ready for the local show and volunteering there so I have neglected my crafting. To get back on track I have joined Life in Pieces 15 Minute Challenge. This week I plan to do at least 15 minutes a day on my cross stitch that has been on the frame way too long!
