I am not drawn to HIIT (high intensity interval training). Instead I am more of a low, steady and focused type. I could also be described as plodding and methodical. It works for me, especially when tackling a piece based on the Pillars of Creation.
Yet, this week I found myself in HIIT mode, much to my surprise. Last week I finished creating row #3. I had set myself a pace of one row per week and I was on target. Why pick up the pace? Well, when I get obsessed about a piece I am working on it is possible I go into overdrive.
Rest Between Activity
Each In the Beginning row is 12 blocks wide. Usually, I can create them row by row. That isn’t the case with row #4 and #5. I won’t bore you with the details, but it has to do with incorporating the star block. Blow me away, I actually made 20 blocks this week. I did take breaks for a meeting and minor medical procedure. In other words, just as in HIIT, I had periods of rest.
Persevering Through Uncertainty
It’s time to look at what I have accomplished. This is when uncertainty creeps in. Is it working? Did that period of HIIQ (high intensity interval quilting) help or hinder me? The best solution I have found for times like this is simply to persevere through the uncertainty.
All my dark blue blocks are done for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I wonder what February’s color will be?
