I've challenged myself to stick to the timer game today. I set the timer to 20 minutes. Started with one kitchen project, was almost finished when the timer went off, so I stuck to it. That cannot work in the sewing room, only the kitchen. I know me, I will forget the timer isn't running and I will have been sewing for an hour or so.
I've sewn a few foursies. I had to, I needed to see if I like it. 18 blocks done, 92 to go. I decided to make it 80 x 88. After all the foursies are sewn together, I'll count up the extras and maybe I'll have enough to make it larger. Right now, I have no idea where I am. So I'll just sew a bunch, press them pinwheel style--you know where all the seams spin one direction--pin them into groups of 11 until I have 10 sets. Then take it from there.
But now I need to tackle that pan cabinet and the spice cabinet and see if I can do both in 20 minutes.....
Oh and during my sewing time, I'm listening to a really good book. I don't know if that's a good thing or not, it makes the time go by really fast. I'm so easily entertained, it's almost scary.
