Another Goal for 2019

I’m going to join Kate at Life in Pieces in her 15 minutes of stitching a day.   I used to do this when I was working full time.  Sitting at the machine for 15 minutes was a great de-stresser!

Although I don’t have the stress that I had when I was working, I still need to sit down at my machine. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.  when I am home.   I obviously can’t take a machine with me every time I travel (although, I’d like to!).

At first, I was hesitant to join in because I already know of two major trips that are happening this year … and then my percentage would go down – big time.  Who am I trying to kid?  Who cares about what percentage of time I sit at the sewing machine?  Probably only me.  SEW … I made the decision that I will only count the days that I am home.

My 15 minutes to stitch will NOT include:

  • time on the computer
    • reading quilting blogs
    • working on EQ
    • writing blog posts
    • digitizing embroidery patterns
    • responding to comments on my blog
  • time watching my embroidery machine
  • time sewing at work

15 Minutes to Stitch will include:

  • Time piecing quilts or projects
  • Time quilting on my domestic sewing machine

Are you going to join Kate & I in 15 Minutes to Stitch 2019?

Happy Quilting!

  1. Sounds like a good plan. The point is to motivate yourself to put in consistent time with projects, I started doing it to get myself out of the gravitational pull of the recliner after getting home for work. Look forward to seeing how this works out for you.

  2. I am happy that you are joining in, Gail. Those 15 minutes really help to keep me rolling along.

    When I go on trips I always bring hand work. Of course my husband always drives, so I take advantage of that and sew in the car. I even bind quilts in the car.

    • Hi Kate,
      Hand work would certainly help. But I really don’t care for it. Yes, I do have a few projects that I could take along … but … they stay home. They might get done if I took them, right?
      Happy Quilting and Stitching for 15 min / day! 🙂


  3. Hi Gail! You present a great argument for joining in. I was hesitant as well for very similar reasons. Hmm. I’m still on the fence . . . but you do have me right on the brink of jumping in. HAHA! Like you said, who really cares anyway?! There isn’t a quilt police or in this case a percentage police. A 70% is still passing on most grading scales, AND you can set your own grading scale. How about that?! You’re in charge. Hmm, now I’m talking myself into joining. ~smile~ Roseanne
