Okay, Drop And Give Me 15

15 Minutes that is!
I recently became friends
with Lynda (libbyquilter).
On her blog, she gives a
weekly report on all the
sewing she accomplishes
during 15 minute sessions.
She got the idea from Kate
who calls it the
15 Minute Challenge
appropriate title, don't you
think.
You devote 15 minutes of
quality time to sewing, stitching,
quilting, anything you have
going in your sewing room.
You won't believe all they get
done!

I remember a friend that would
spend 15 minutes, before she went
to bed each night cleaning up her
home.  Whenever I visited, every
thing always looked so nice.  She
told me that little 15 minute trick
and said that was what kept her
house looking nice with little effort.
She even had her 2 young sons
thinking this was a game!
I have tried it on occasion and really
you can do quite a bit in 15 minutes
time.
15 minutes of uninterrupted stitching
time......give it a try!

I LIVE by the 15 minute system! Can I get an Amen?!

I would spend 15 minutes procrastinating before I did anything--I think I am a looser.

I just need 15 mins of me time, or 15 mins of craft time and i'll be doing good!

Makes sense to me. I may have to try that. Problem is I don't want to put everything down after only 15 minutes.

Darn, it would take me 15 minutes to find the needles:) Enjoy your weekend, HUGS!

I think the key to being productive in 15 minutes MUST be uninterrupted time! I will give this a try. Thank you for sharing...

When I first started doing needlework I always kept a little project rolled up on the dining room table... as supper cooked I would do a few stitches and was surprised what I could get done in that little bit of time... I read an article once that called it "found time" - those minutes here and there that add up. It is truly amazing what you can get done in them!

It is amazing what you can get done in 15 minutes and it's a great way to convince yourself to actually work on a project you've been putting off. 15 minutes doesn't seem like that long and it's surprising how often, once you do the 15 minutes, you want to keep going.

Yeh I'm a bit like Mary Ann - once I start then I have to keep going until my muse runs out and needs more inspiration!
Hugs again,
Suzy

There are so many things in my day that I need to do, have to do and want to do that doing things in 15 minute or so increments gives me that wonderful sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. Great post :)

Hello Miss D...

Thank you for sharing with us! I'm always saying "if I just had 15 minutes!" I think squeezing that amount of time for most anything is doable! LOVE IT!

Thank you for visiting me on my post about bullying. Scary world we live in sometimes. We must pray for wisdom and change.

Love to you~You bless me~

I've been doing this 15 minutes thing for years and it is amazing... When I taught kindergarten we made it a game at the end of the day.... I set the timer and 30 five year-old raced around to see how much we could put away...and when the timer went off we all yelled YEAH!!! and jumped up and down.. Now it is mostly with my husband... He always says we will be leaving at "such" time and he's never ready until 15 minutes after that... I always use those 15 minutes rather than stew because he is late as usual.... Been catching up on your blog.. That class was amazing... Gerry K.
