So… I was chatting with my friend Opal the other day, and I mentioned that there were a dozen projects I needed to get to or get through, and I just couldn’t seem to find the motivation to do it. I wondered if perhaps scheduling crafting time on a daily basis was the way to go, and Opal told me that it was the way she got through a bunch of projects last year.
She suggested a 30 day challenge, wherein we both crafted for 30 minutes a day, at a minimum for the next 30 days. It sounded like a great idea, so in a FaceTime call today, we chatted about what we wanted to get done. Some of my projects are kind of small, but some of them are fairly significant, at least to me.
I made a list, and it ranges from writing up a pattern for my friend, Shireen over at The Blue Brick, to blocking two different shawls that have been finished for an embarrassing amount of time…
to putting together the top of a quilted bed runner…
to knitting socks for my dad….
to reskeining some yarn from some frogged projects…
A total of
12 items 13 items…I missed the completion of a quilted table runner.
I might throw some painting and drawing in there, just for the fun of it, but I think it will mostly be fibre and fabric. I would even like to get back at my spinning wheel.
I’m going to take notes and figure out how well this works… and hopefully there will be blog posts along the way, especially now that I have the app on my phone and can post this way!
Wish me luck!
I hope you accomplish all you set out to do! Know the feeling….I am retired and have a lot of unfinished projects , i.e., painting, drawing, knitting, crocheting….oh well, some day!
