Drop and Give Me a Commitment Statement!
I have forever preached that if you can regularly practice quilting or sewing or even just sorting thread or caressing fabric for twenty minutes every single day, you will be amazed by how much you can accomplish in a week, a month, a year, etc. Drop and Give Me Twenty is my way of getting a group together to give it a try. So far I have yet to end up with a participant who didn't accomplish anything, which I figure is a good record.
See the official DAGMT page for all of the details, including a fill in the blanks style commitment statement for you to use if you like. Please remember that ALL DAGMT activity required for entries (linking your commitment to the linky, leaving comments about your other entries, etc) should occur on the DAGMT home page. I really do need it all in one place so that I can keep track of who is doing what. Thank you.
Since I am not just a DAGMT founder, but I am also a participant, here is my required commitment statement:
"I, Beth Helfter, Founder of DAGMT, Scrap Sorter Extraordinaire, and Quilter Afflicted with TMPD (Too Many Projects Disorder), do commit to actual sewing for two hours a day, every day, for the entire month of February. In doing so I hope to stay on top of the several new patterns I have in development as well as not fall behind on my very first Scrap Squad project because that would really be embarrassing and just plain horrible. My family may well be eating sandwiches three times a week for dinner, but they will deal."
And now I'm off to add it to the linky and back to the sewing machine. Because my DAGMT is pretty much every day, really, and I hope yours will be too by 2/28!
