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.


  1. Wow! You got a lot done and it looks great!

  2. So cute! Sometimes when I say 'just 15 minutes...' I get carried away and sew all evening.

  3. Very cute. It's amazing how hard it is to just make yourself sit down and start on something sometimes, but how glad you are that you did. Thanks for linking up this week.

  4. You filled in the manger quite well. These tiny cross stitch projects take awhile to complete. A great way to start your 15 Minute Challenge debut! Sandi
