Last week, after reading a blog by Jennifer Williams , I decided to to take up the Daily Band Practice . I have to work on an unfinished project for at least 15 minutes every day. Now, 9 days later I’m amazed that I’m still on schedule and that I enjoy working on the various bands (except for that squirrel …).
I did have to set myself some additional rules, because I’m very good in finding excuses
- I really have to weave for 15 minutes. Spending 30 minutes on figuring out how I’ve done it before does not count.
- I am not allowed to skip a day, even though I have woven for 30 minutes the day before.
But I am allowed to work ahead during working days in order to make a nice picture with daylight. (by the way… photography takes much longer than the weaving…)
The Daily Band Practice is not only good for finishing UFO’s, but also provides a solid training in time management. Do I have enough time? Then I can work on a project, which I have to figure out all over again. Do I have many other things? Then it is a simple baltic style band, that has been on the loom for 1.5 years.
In short, one more activity added to my already not so empty agenda, but a very nice project. So writing blogs happens at 6.30 in the morning 😉
