15 Minutes A Day

I made a goal for 2011 ( I hate the word resolution) to do something related to sewing, crocheting, quilting, and other fiber related pursuits, for 15 minutes each day.    I set a timer next to my sewing machine and so far I have met my goal.   I have joined in my LQG's block of the month and am going to make a block each month for our raffle block drawing.   

I also made a list of my UFO's, PIG's, whatever you want to call them, and will share it later.    I put the very next action I need to do to move each one of them along, right next to it on the list.   My goals is alot of finishes in 2011.   I am not going to put a number on it, but I am going to keep at it.  

Here are the tree blocks I did for the raffle block.    I really like them.   Next months block is a tree made with appliqued hearts.   Ever heard of Heat n Bond Lite?  Don't have enough time for needle turn right now, but it is still applique.

I will keep you posted on my 15 minutes a day.  (It normally turns into 30, but that is okay.)

Did you notice the timer in the pictures??

Keep on Stitchin'

When a person is as busy as you are, that timer is a good deal and will help you stick to your goals.

I can't believe how much time I have to sew now. Just walking into my room for 15 minutes a day gets my creative juices flowing and gets me excited about my projects! My 15 minutes normally turns into half an hour too, but it's okay if I only want to do 15 minutes too!
Love how the tree blocks came out. I'll be following this one very closely :)
