Last Check-in for Sew30SewFUN May 2017, giveaway info

 
Well, peeps....how did things go for the Month of May with regards to finding/creating more time in your life to work on projects?  =D
 
 

 
I actually feel pretty good about my progress in finding more time to work on my projects!  I didn't get as far as succeeding in my challenge for myself...of the 30 minutes EACH day for 6 days a week.  But, setting the challenge was VERY good for me because I found that I at least thought about it and made each week to at least TOTAL the time of 30 minutes times 6 and getting that total of 3 hours SOME how within the week.  THAT I did succeed in doing...so, I feel there was progress for me compared to time I gave to my projects in several months previous to May.  =D
 
 
My hope is that my challenge for myself encouraged others to find time that they hadn't previously committed to working on projects.  And, that the time found was enjoyable and confidence building =)
 

 
 


I will go back over the comments made on blog posts and instagram hashtags since the Challenge began that relate to Sew30SewFUN. And comments to this post will be open until Friday evening (midnight mountain time).  Each person's post (each time) will be listed and put into random.org for the generated drawing.  The winner  of the $35 gift certificate will be posted by Sunday morning of this week. =D 

 
Should we try do the Challenge for June?  Was May's challenge helpful to you?  Let me know what you think?

I sew every day and 90% of the time it is with scraps. I have to throw a 'new' fabric bundle into the works to feed fresh into the scraps.

Since I'm traveling, I haven't gotten much stitching done, but, I did get some done a couple of times (over 30 minutes each time). I wasn't so worried, since I'd been getting about 3-4 hours a day until I left town. I'll be stitching away, as soon as I get back home. Fun challenge.

I would like to see the challenge for June, it is more difficult to find my self sewing right now because of outdoor chores, activities and the like!~

Mary said...

I also sewed ever day, so mission accomplished! This was a fun challenge. Thank you for hosting, and I hope you continue it in June.

I've been using it to buzz away at projects that have been sitting for way too long, many of which just needed me to take the next step, or finish up one last thing (make the binding, etc.), so this has been very helpful. I've done a worse job commenting / checking in than I have sewing, so that's an accomplishment! Thanks for the motivation. :)

I've been able to meet the challenge! And having the challenge really did help me to stay focused. Some days it was only 30 before work, other days it was 3-8 hrs of sewing for the day. Progress was made on my projects so I'm happy.

I loved this challenge. It made me conscientious of making my sewing time a priority. I got projects done that would probably still be waiting. I managed to meet the goals. I will be doing this in June

Oh, yes, I loved the May challenge. I don't think I can do it for June because of some other commitments, but I'm going to try to keep sewing at least 30 minutes every day but Sunday, so we'll see. May was definitely good, though! Thank you!

STH said...

I didn't do as well this week because I was out of town for three days, but I think I sewed every day I was home. I'd love to keep it up in June; I think it's helping me to avoid those stretches of several days where I don't sew at all. I have SO many projects I want to do--and deadlines on some of them!--that I need to keep my momentum going!

I will carry on with or without the challenge because I have tried to internalize it. But it helps to have the challenge out there, reorienting me when I get distracted.

Karen said...

I did manage to sew 6 days each week. I finished three quilts I was sewing. Thank you for motivating me to this challenge.

BarefootThunder said...

challenges are always a great motivator for me. I sew or cut fabric almost every day. sometimes only 10 - 15 minutes, sometimes hours and hours ... it seems to balance out. Thanks for the "push" to sew more :)
