It's called our 30/30. We do our chores for 30 minutes . . . laundry, dishes, dusting and vacuuming, etc. Then we reward ourselves with 30 minutes of crafting time. Sometimes we just watch the clock and other times we set the timer. I still make a to do list everyday and as I get a job done, I cross it off. And since it's Friday, the chores are light and even fun sometimes . . . like making apple sauce . . .
It was really yummy. Of course, I had to sample.
And stitching and sewing. I finished the second poinsettia tree from Jenny. Then set about to making my table topper.
It's not finished, but I have a "flimsy" . . . do you still call them that or is that only for the bed-size quilts?
Either way, I have the top finished. Saturday I will sandwiched and quilt. Hopefully I'll get it bound but I haven't decided how I'm going to quilt it, so that may be for another day.
And the icing on the cake . . .
I received my very first swap block for the Gardener's Quilt. I absolutely LOVE it. Thank you, Kathi. You did an amazing job. I'll be making my next block for the swap this coming week - I hope. There are a lot of appointments, so I'll be doing a lot of squeezing to something accomplished. It will be a stressful week, so prayers will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for stopping by,
Wishing you a creative weekend.
Actually, I've never called it a flimsy! It's just a top. I like what you did with Jenny's pattern. That's really cute! Your sewing machine received is darling, too. I keep thinking I could cheerfully keep making machines, but the month is almost half over, so this week, I have to get busy on the rotary cutter blocks. I like your 30 minutes idea!
