Play 60, the program aims to get kids playing for at least 60 minutes a day, promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.
My program is aimed at getting me to sew at least 60 minutes a day. We all know how difficult it can be at times to get motivated to sew: we're tired, we're stressed, we're distracted, we feel guilty for taking time for ourselves. You name the excuse - we've all been there! But it's so simple to just go sit down and start sewing. Whether sewing by hand or stitching at the machine, it just takes that simple step of getting started. Before you know it, you've accomplished one step in a project and are ready for another. And the satisfaction of making that effort and having something concrete to show for it makes it all worthwhile.
So now in the evening (sometimes even in the morning before work) I head for my sewing room mentally chanting my new mantra: "Sew Sixty! Sew Sixty!"
I finished my multi-colored Granny Square blocks this week. These round out my Rainbow Scrap Challenge Granny Square quilt.
All the squares waiting for sashing.
Sashing and cornerstones for the Granny Square quilt.
A few more leader-ender spools in black. I love that reproduction fabric with the mauve flowers. Wish I had more - those were the last scraps!
And some seasonal green and red leader-enders.
A few other projects also got attention this week, but I'll hold off on sharing until there's a little more pizzaz to show. I'm looking forward to another week of challenging myself to Sew Sixty - won't you join me?!
