I’ve gotten a little bit lazy in the daily sewing area.
A little bit of sewing every day.
Not that you have to, but it’s a good thing.
I have been so focused on sewing for the quilt group or for the blog or for others (all of them are awesome and I’m really lucky for those opportunities- don’t get me wrong) but I’m not finding much fun in it.
I am always on someone else’s agenda and the project becomes ho-hum.
Well- after I started making a few of the planner pages for the 16 free quilt planner series, I kind of realized that it had been awhile since I had sewn.
I did sew a few things for Christmas….but really, I don’t sew as much as I’d like.
The last page for the series was the Daily Sewing Tracker.
Now, I know we are past the start of the first day of the year…but we are right at the beginning of the year, and we are in charge, so when we start is besides the point and up to us individually.
So- will you join me in a little something?
I’m not sure how long we’ll go….I’m hoping for the year because they do say after 13 days, it becomes habit.
But for at least 3 months I’m going to sew everyday.
I’m not giving myself a timed time or time limit.
I’m just saying that every day I will sew something.
That something will or might include: hand stitching, embroidery, button attachment or mending, quilt blocks, machine quilting….. anything with a needle counts. Maybe a quick project or something I make using an orphan quilt block.
You can follow the progress on Instagram
(which I’m starting to use more and this sharing every day will help me be more active there as well!)
If you are interested in joining this crazy journey with me, you are officially invited.
Share your pictures on facebook or Instagram – use the hashtag:
so we can see them all as a collective.
I really am almost giddy about this.
It gives me a ‘reason’ to do something that I love and I look forward to making some progress on some long awaited and begged for quilts (it’s coming Eliza!) and possibly starting a few new projects as well.
There is no formal agreement to sign– you can leave a quick note here and then, let’s get busy.
No more chatting, there is sewing to be done.
