TRUE CONFESSIONS... When I'm on travel to teach at your guilds and shops I am not able to get in much sewing. I take along a project but I don't usually sew on it much.
I'm now home for a few days before I leave to Ohio to teach.
I decided that I am going to get in my 10 minutes a day for the rest of the month..
THEN see if I can do it for EVERY day in August.
What do you think?
In August I'm home more, so that will be perfect for getting my 10 minutes in. And I have a BUNCH of projects I can do... so many that I need to make a list!
The other day at my online quilt bee there was a great discussion on keep a list of what we want to work on so that we make it happen. I'm SUCH a list maker this speaks to my heart. Should I wait until I'm back.. or .. what the Heck...start it tonight!
MAKE A LIST!
Why don't you challenge YOURSELF to sew 10 minutes a day with me.
Leave me a comment telling me how you keep motivated to work on your projects
I am going to give away 5 of my Moda Candies (42 of my 2.5" squares)
from my new fabric line to 5 people who comment between now and Aug 6!
Sometimes we read something, learn something, hear some one speak on a topic that I like to call 'right place, right time'. When I invited Joan Ford on the show 6-10-13 it was at the exact time that my interest in 'taming' my scraps came about. Her way of thinking was at 'ah-ha' moment for me. Joan is back today to talk in more detail about scraps.. something we all have!
