Why should you try it, now? Well I have brought you the tantalizing tale of my own epic fail last week. Wait...what!?!!
Since I challenged you guys to sew for 15 minutes a day, I figured I'd participate, as well. Guess what? I didn't succeed in sewing for 15 minutes a day, but the challenge was SO successful that I have to brag about my accomplishments.
I ran my challenge from Monday to Sunday. I fell off the wagon on Wednesday(didn't even think about sewing), meant to sew on Friday (but didn't), and thought about sewing on Saturday morning before the weekend adventures began (but decided to play a board game with my6 year old instead.) I REGRET NO-ZING!!!!!
I slacked off all of those days, and I still accomplished a ton!!!!
I did the binding on SEVEN quilts, and finished piecing FORTY EIGHT scrappy blocks. And I have beaten back the chaos of my sewing room.(see pictures below)
Now, I didn't accomplish this much in an hour. (Four days of 15 minutes) BUT, by committing to sit down for 15 minutes with no higher expectations, I triggered inertia. You, know, 'An object in motion tends to stay in motion, a quilter at her machine tends to stay at her machine?'
Check out the progress that my inertia won me, this week!
