At the time, I was recovering from a back spasm, resettling refugees and getting ready for a nearly-two-week trip (more about which very soon!), so I committed to beginning today. I'm fortunate to be in a position to dedicate my 80 minutes in one go, and despite my early and continued resistance to paper-piecing, each Monday beginning at ten o'clock, I shall work at paper piecing until I reach the point of being at ease with the technique. Stay tuned for my weekly updates.
Does this sound like something you'd like to do? Already we have women doing these things: quilting projects, Bible study, scrapbooking, sermon writing, renewal of cooking interest. What could you do if you dedicated 80 minutes a week? If you're on Facebook and are up for the challenge, search for the public group Just 80 Minutes and ask to join. And we're off!
Official Group Description: What could you do if you dedicated 80 minutes a week to learning a new skill, worked on a project, or dedicated your time? My Themes in Literature students work on a project every sixth cycle day for approximately that amount of time. Some have started businesses, written and recorded songs, built miniature models of houses, learned to play instruments, created workout plans, or refined artistic skills. Others have researched history, interviewed family, or worked in genealogy. Join this group, tell us about your intention, and start working! Report in once a week, or 6 day cycle, on your progress.
I really recommend reading THE FIRST 20 HOURS by Josh Kauffman, as you consider this challenge.
