The 100 Day Project

Since the start date is tomorrow, I figured I’d better actually post about this! I heard about and then did this project last year, to work on improving my digital scrapbooking skills. I didn’t quite manage to do it consecutively because life, but I did do all 100 days of the project, and it was helpful! (You can see my project pages here, if you’re interested.)

Since one of my overarching goals this year is to rekindle my love of sewing, I wanted to do something involving that this time. After debating for awhile, I settled on what I’m calling 100 Days of Consistent Sewing. My plan is to aim for 15 minutes of sewing every day. If I manage more, great! But I figure that 15 minutes is a short enough time that I should be able to do it, even on the nights that the kids fight bedtime and all that.

So tidy!
My new project basket

To try and get ready this week, I (mostly) finished getting my fabric stash reorganized, folded, and put away. (I still have some quilt cotton that a friend recently gave me that needs prewashing first.) I pulled the fabrics and patterns for the next few likely pieces in my chain reaction into the basket, so they’d be ready to go. And I did a little extra sewing in the evenings this week as a warmup of sorts.

I’ve been working through a second iteration of the Itch to Stitch Mountain View jeans this month. So for my official project beginning, I’m starting with the fronts and backs all sewn together, and the pocket topstitching done. So I need to attach the back pockets, sew the sides and inseams, put on the waistband, and hem them.

As far as blogging goes, I won’t be posting here daily, but I will probably do a weeklyish roundup. I do think that it might be interesting to track the total time from start to finish of these projects, though I’d have to wait on recording that until I start the next one.

    I like that goal! I was steaming pretty well with at least 5 minutes daily until Jan 6 knocked my sensibilities out for a couple weeks, but I’m ready to try again. Maybe 10 minutes for me.
