Marji asked the excellent question, "...does this mean you're going to limit yourself to sewing only 30 minutes a day? or try to get in at least 30 minutes?" The answer is...both! The point of my 30/30 Project is to force me to use a 30 minute block of time for sewing and to stop when the 30 minutes is up.
My sewing mindset is to wait until I have a huge block of time for sewing, then sew until I drop. The problem is that huge blocks of time are hard to come by in my life and so days (weeks!) could pass with no sewing getting done at all.
At the other end of the spectrum, when I finally realized that maybe I could utilize smaller blocks of time for sewing, I had a hard time disciplining myself to put it away and move on to other tasks.
And I guess I'm taking it to the extreme of limiting myself to 30 minutes even if more time is available simply for the sake of idle curiosity. Nancy Zieman's 10, 20, 30 minutes To Sew patterns got me to wondering how much sewing could actually be accomplished in 30 minutes a day by a slow sewist such as myself.
So there you have it and it's probably more than you wanted to know about the motivation behind my 30/30 Project.
Which started this morning at 5:15 a.m. Here's what I managed to accomplish, most of the purse pattern for my DD's Asian brocade purse. What is immediately apparent is that you must focus like a laser beam if you want to get anything done. No time for wool gathering. I believe this is going to be interesting.
