We are one third of the way through the year, which is a good time to review 2023 goals.
I have 13 items on my creative goals list and to date have finished one, plus one that wasn’t on the list.
Some of the projects listed will take more time than others. I never expected to finish all 13, but it is something to work towards. I’m OK with my progress to date. Multiple quilts are started and have a good deal done. At some point those will roll into finishes.
Here is my one list finish.
And my not on the list finish.
Last November, I also started sewing for at least 15 minutes every other morning. I’m so glad I gave that a try. It help projects consistently move forward and motivates me to work in the sewing room more often. Enthusiasm for a project is key for me to keep working on it, and that has also improved.
I’m excited to see what I finish in the next four months and to share it here.
That 15 minutes a day seems to really be helpful, Donna! Not sure that I want to incorporate a timer into my life, but on the other hand…. 🙂
The timer only comes out on work days. Otherwise, I would be late every time! On my days off I hang out in the sewing room as long as I want.
A great attitude. The time does help, as well as a project you’re excited about. I’ve worked ten hours the last two days because I’m so excited to see the progress on the Cheri Payne quilt section. Congratulations on your finishes, and finding more time and joy for quilting.
Thanks! Glad to hear you are enjoying more sewing time too.
I can’t believe this year is going by so quickly. 1/3 gone already? Wow. Do you find that once you are in the sewing room getting in 15 minutes, that you stay longer and get more done?
I do if it isn’t a work day. I make more of an effort to sew at night and on weekends because there is steady progress.
