Happy National Quilting Month!I am so bummed. I will be away for the next two weeks, so will be unable to do any quilting during National Quilting Month. Boo! The upside (I guess) is that I will drop off my machine for a much-needed cleaning etc. while I'm gone. (Well, there's also the upside that I'll be visiting people I love in Florida!). I'll have a few posts, but still.
So here's my Tip for the Day:
I recently got a Fitbit. I like it -- low-end, but it does remind me that I need to keep moving. It's amazing how many steps you can get in by putting your ironing board in a different room than your sewing machine. But today was an eye-opener.
Today I walked for a couple of miles, then settled in to do some machine quilting. That part didn't go so well, so I ended up doing a lot of seam-ripping of some decorative stitching that didn't turn out the way I'd hoped. I was just sitting there, whacking away at those stitches, when my FitBit buzzed that I'd met my step goal. Cool! Except that I was just ripping out seams. Maybe I was bouncing up and down in frustration, too, but I don't think so.
So keep this in mind. If you need a few extra steps to meet your fitness goal, go ahead and unstitch those sub-par seams! Frog stitching works! Rippit, rippit.
'Til next time.
