Friday Night Sew In and the "15 Minute a Day Campaign"

Happy snowy Friday Blogland neighborhood! (Don't those snow topped porch posts look like cupcakes with icing on them!)
ANYHOW .... it's COLD COLD COLD outside, so we here at MBIAJ Headquarters decided to...

....put a big pot of chicken soup on , fire up the sewing machine and join in on this month's ....

Friday Night Sew In which actually goes well with our MBIAJ Time Management Dept's 15 Minutes a Day (or most/some days) Campaign
The Time Management Dept is hoping the MBIAJ Sewing Dept can rack up an accumulation of 15 minute time slots full of sewing tonight ! Here's their report on what has been accomplished so far this past week in 15 minutes/day :

Day #1: traced applique shapes onto fusible web and fused them onto fabric

Day #2: cut out half of the applique pieces (OK, so we're slow cutters)

Day #3: cut out the rest of the applique pieces (more slow cutting.....)

Day #4: Figured out measurements and cut out background pieces

OK .... so the MBIAJ Time Management Dept was fairly pleased with the accumulation of progress made over 4 days of just 15 minutes a day working on this project (OK, we're slower than molasses in January, but it IS January and the MBIAJ Sewing Dept is farther along on this project than if they hadn't at least squeezed in those 15 minutes a day!) Now to just keep it up!!!:) (oh, and if you're thinking that the above project looks like a Christmas project, it is ..... we like to think of it as early for next year instead of what it really is..... late for this year!)

OK ..... the soup is done and the sewing machine is fired up !!! On to the Friday Night Sew In ....... Hang onto your hats ... here we GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be back tomorrow with a report !
