Quiltathon is this weekend so we have to work hard to get ready. If you’re not participating with us, don’t get aggravated with me for talking about it here. I’m just trying to get my fellow quiltathoners motivated!
What can you do today to help you have more sewing time on Saturday and/or Sunday? I’m cooking . . which is what I usually do on Mondays. I’ll post my menu for this week later. Each day this week, I’m going to try to do something that will help free up some of my weekend for sewing.
Set some goals to get things done this week and try to get them done. That always makes me feel like I’ve accomplished so much (meeting goals) and then I feel like I’m entitled to some fun time on the weekend.
One of my goals for this week is to finish two tops I have started. Both are taking up parts of the design wall and I’d like to start Saturday with a clean design wall, as well as a clean cutting table. That is a pretty lofty goal but I might can do it. If you haven’t already done so, I’d like to suggest:
- Set goals for getting things done around the house. Make sure these are goals that you can actually do without killing yourself and make sure these are goals that will make you feel good about what you’ve done so that you feel it’s ok to take yourself some sewing time this weekend.
- Set goals for your sewing room. Do you need to clean, organize, pull fabric, make sure you have everything you need to get started? Do it and be ready to sew this weekend.
