On Motivation

There are 2 kinds of motivation, intrinsic and extrinsic. There are also 2 perspectives–self motivation, and motivation of others. I went to an interesting workshop at work this week, on how extrinsic motivation doesn’t really work in the long run, and on how to motivate others through positive reinforcement of the desired behaviours. 385 more words

Well it took two FALS (first quarter FAL list) and one ALYoF (March) but Leftovers IV is finally finished.  I did a lot of ruler work on it and quite a bit of dense quilting.   95 more words

March goal and an ambitious list

I am trying to be more focused this year, although I keep getting sucked into instagram and flickr swaps. I don’t know what it is, the extra challenge of making something for another person–with a deadline–just makes my heart race. 195 more words

A Lovely Year of Finishes and First FAL

Yeah…..I made my January goal for #ALYOF.   Back on January 5th I blogged  about finishing my baby boy quilt made with Zen Chic Fabric. My cousin’s son has a baby due in April (does that make him/her my 3rd cousin or cousin twice removed??) and I have a feeling it will be a boy   This is the first quilt I’ve made with the “L” shape block.   95 more words

Focus - Q1 Finish-A-Long goals

If I had a word for the year, it would be focus. To focus on one project at a time. To focus on my daughter detailing her school activities without bouncing up every 5 seconds to get something out of the fridge or another fork. 257 more words
