Next week on the 16th I'll fess up to my success or lack thereof. It always seems like it's more of a motivator if I have to report on my progress. There will be a linky party for anyone who is also motivated by having to own up to their progress or lack of.
So what can you do in just 15 minutes?
- cut block pieces
- press a set of seams
- trim a stack of HSTs
- cut up your scraps
- measure a top for the next border
- pin pieces for stitching
That's what I did last night, I cut one of the borders for Scrappy Stars and pinned it to the quilt top. It's sitting up in the sewing room waiting for me to wander up and sew up that long seam during my 15 minutes of stitching this evening. Hopefully my 15 minutes will morph into an hour or so.
My biggest problem in the evenings is thinking I'm too tired to sew. I will usually wake up once I make it to the sewing room, but convincing myself to shut off the computer and vacate my comfy recliner is often difficult. Challenging myself to 15 minutes every night starting at 8 PM is often the best way to get me moving into the sewing room.
What is your biggest challenge to making it into your sewing room on a regular basis?
