Judy L's UFO Challenge

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

What can you do with 30 minutes? I am not sure if I accomplished a lot or a little. This is mainly an observation. I do know that regardless of what I accomplished it had to be done to make progress.

  • setup the ironing board
  • pressed the already cut 4 strips for one tote
  • trimmed and pressed another 4 previously cut 4 strips for another tote
  • trimmed and pressed the fusible webbing (already cut to width) to all 8 strips
  • put away the project and ironing board

Is that a lot? I don't know. I was surprised it took me that long but I also piddle along the way. I am sure the dogs had to go out at least once and I was called over to look at something on the tv.

Many years ago I bought a book by Nancy Zieman (Nancy's Notions): 10,20,30 Minutes to Sew. What a wealth of information. I still use some of those ideas to this day.

I try to feel accomplish by spending 30 - 45 minutes in the morning (while my older kids are getting ready for school) to do one block from one of my ufo's...lately it's been a Dear Jane block.

Whether it took you too long or you were very quick is irrelevent. You are that much closer to finishing your project. Look at it that way! Besides, fusible web take an eternity!

I have figured that it takes me 30 minutes to use one strand of thread when I am doing my stitchery projects.

Yup! Those 30 minutes will add up!

I stitched up an entire quilt that way and named it after the experience because I was on a train while sewing. I got a good 30 minutes each way and sure made my comute go fast!

That's good deal done in 30 minutes! That's how I work a lot of the time, with 5 boys keeping me busy, sometimes all I have during the day is 30 minutes here or there, if I am lucky!
