It goes something like this ...
- Make a list of 10 projects you would like to finish.
- Write a list any supplies that you'll need to finish your projects.
- Here's the good part - drop by your local quilt shop to get the things on your supplies list. Woo hoo - a reason to go shopping and it's for things that will help you get quilts finished so DH can't complain!!
- Begin working on one of your projects but you're only allowed to spend 3 hours on it.
- When your 3 hours are up, put it away and move on to the next project on your list. Apparently you start to lose interest after three hours.
- Carry on working through your list, working for 3 hours on each, and when you get to the bottom go back to the top.
- Keep a note of the number of hours you've worked on each project.
- If a project looks like it will take 4 hours to complete just go ahead and finish it so you can cross it off your list.
- When you finish a project .... add a new one to the list. And give yourself a pat on the back!
Now I don't know about you but it can take me 3 hours to gather all my bits and bobs and get seated at the sewing machine. So I'm going to adapt this a little. For my rule of 10 I'm going to work for 10 hours before I rotate.
Have you tried the Power of 10? If so, let me know how you got on!
And just so this post isn't all words here's a photo of my DN - a self portrait - and don't those nasal hairs just look fantastic ... laughs!
