29.7 March A Long 2013February 26, 2013
For those new to the blog/podcast last year, I hosted a “March A Long” partially inspired by my marching ants sound I found on freesound.org.
I decided to “March A Long” inspiring everyone to take a challenge during the month of March to sew for 15 minutes a day.
It was personally motivating to me last year, and I think it will be the great jump start to some sort of podcast return too.

Here’s how it works. We’re going to do honor system, and try to all do 15 minutes of sewing, quilting, creating each day, during the month of March and then I’ll have a reporting day and a specific blog post, that I would like you to leave your comments about how much you sewed over the previous week (HERE’S THE REPORT SERGEANT!).
If you want, you can break it down day by day (ie Monday, I sewed on this embroidery, Tuesday, I ripped out paper pieces, Wednesday I designed a new border) or just tell me at the end of the week how much sewing you did, and which days you skipped.
Just by reporting in to the drill sergeant every week, I will put you in a small drawing for a prize.
I know we’re all busy with millions of other things, but sometimes need an excuse to do something for ourselves that make us feel good. This can provide you with that excuse.
15 Minutes is all I’m asking, nothing too hard to at least TRY to fit in each day.
I know I will skip days in March too, but I will try my darndest to make it happen for me this year.
So with only a couple of days before the month of March, we’ll give you a headstart on the last 2 days and call them freebies, and you can report from Sunday to Saturday of the upcoming weeks. Sunday starts the week, Saturday ends the week, and I will make the reporting posts on Saturday, and make a podcast calling out all the wonderful things you guys are doing on Sunday of the previous week.
If you pick up on this as we’re going along (start in the middle of the month) still feel free to join up. No pressure. No one is holding your feet to the fire, no one is actually making you do the 20 pushups that the sergeant wants you to do in the start (middle?) of every podcast.
But please think about participating!
