This month's fostering creativity is "learn something new every day". Since I'm taking a training class this week, it got me to thinking that learning something new every day isn't really very realistic. In this software class we are working through real world examples, starting first with ones that use just one module and working up to ones that use all the modules. The examples have nothing to do with my project. So that means that when I get home, I'll have to figure out how to make those modules work with those specific situations. Well, maybe that is learning "something" new every day. I guess it depends on how you define "something".
Learning how to machine quilt is on my "to do" list and I think of that as something you "learn" then practice to get good at it. I've read posts from quilters learning that skill. Most mention "I learned, how to adjust my tension, how to hold my hands, do this to get better....." Sounds like my definition of "learning" needs to be adjusted too.
Well, while I've been learning new software, not much stitching happened the last couple of days. I did manage 4 days last week, but a couple of those were really not much more than 15 minute sessions because that was all the time I had. Still every little bit adds up to progress.
So how did you do last week in finding time to stitch, knit, craft or learn something new?
