WiP Wednesday & Fifteen Minute Challenge - Stomach Bug Edition

The Dude had the stomach bug Thursday night, puked all night, and bounced back by Friday afternoon. I had the stomach bug yesterday, puked once, slept for 13 hours, and am barely moving today. I want to be a six-year-old.

But Christmas doesn't care about stomach bugs, so I had to keep working today.
I used my 15 minutes each day to prep the binding for Rudolph and the Grinch. By Sunday it was ready to go and I started alternating 15 minutes of binding with 15 minutes of present wrapping - a good way to do two hated tasks.

Plus it's really nice to have the binding all neatly wound up while sewing it!

Christmas Sewing:
Grinch panel quilt - niece - quilted, half-bound
Rudolph panel quilt - the Dude -quilted, bound & awaiting threads clipped
Fat Quarter Stars - four blocks behind...sigh...
LQS Saturday Sampler - 10/12 blocks done - need to do October and December
Quiltville Orca Bay {Skorca!} - 50/112 B&W QSTs, 9/36 red strings, 34/175 B&W HST, 32/32 blue squares to become triangles, 4/175 B&W HST with additional triangles

Hunter's Star, round two
No actual sewing progress, but I did cut most of the pieces I still need for the half-blocks.

Don't check out more at Work in Progress Wednesday - Lee is taking the month off. :) But do check out how others are managing their time at Life in Pieces!


  1. Boo on the flu. Hope your whole family is well soon! The quilt progress looks great.

  2. Hope you are feeling better tomorrow! You sure got alot done, considering!

  3. Oh to be 6 again and recovery so quickly. Hope you are feeling better.

    I like your idea of switching off between wrapping and binding. I may use that today to finish up my holiday stuff.

    Even with your downtime, sounds like you made progress on a number of fronts.
