Today’s Topic:-Quilt Habits Be Prepared!
Habits can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
I’ve been thinking about my own habits lately. For nearly ten years, I was in the habit of blogging most days of the week. It was a great habit that pushed my skills in quilting, photography and writing. (Frankly, it changed my life!) Unfortunately, for the past year, I fell out of the habit of blogging. I told myself I was too busy–and I was. But all too often, I was busy doing things that didn’t matter and didn’t make me happier or healthier. I was playing Wordle when I could have been doodling. I was watching TV, when I could have been going on nature walks, and I was dusting when I could have been quilting. (Okay–I know some people think dusting is worthwhile…)
In general, I was doing things that I thought were a good use of my time, but I knew they weren’t the BEST use of my time.
So my resolution for 2023 is to be mindful of how I use my time.
Quilting Habits-Be Prepared!
Today, please join me as we start quilting in 2023 by being prepared!
Ask yourself, “If I had 15 minutes to spare, would I be able to quilt?”.
If the answer is “no”…
What can YOU do today to ensure that when you have a few spare minutes you can fill it with quilting?
A few suggestions:
- Create 4-5 small quilt sandwiches for experimentation and play only
- Clean your machine, and install a new needle.
- Review machine set-up for free motion quilting on your machine.
- And whenever inspiration strikes, quilt for 15 minutes. Don’t plan, just see where the needle takes you!
What quilting habit would help you be prepared?
Do you think you could find 15 minutes to quilt most days this week?
What’s the limiting factor?
We’d LOVE to hear!
