I don't make resolutions, I make new goals. Here are a few for sewing that I'm going to try this year:
1. Fabric Diet!
My stash is HUGE. I have a large amount of scraps (what I call scraps). When we moved I said things were going to get organized as it came out of storage. This is a slow progress.
2. Yardage Used Chart
I have watched others keep track and am amazed. I never kept track of how much fabric a project takes. This will also help me keep track of projects I've made.
3. Blog more
I have already messed up. Well I guess if I keep to some of the other goals, I might make a post once a month.
4. No new UFOs
By using the fabric usage chart, I hope things will be completed instead of being just a flimsy. I really don't have the space to store them and I do get bored easily.
5. Finish old UFOs
I have to many of these to count. The get stored in a couple of totes. Those that need to become a flimsy and another that are finished tops.
I still do not feel like this is my home. Maybe it's because I lived so long at the other place, maybe because my dad will never see or give his approval of this home, or maybe it's because I don't have my own little space yet. My room that was to be my sewing area has become the catch all room. Maybe I should make a #6 goal. Little by little my space is coming.
So I'm going to try and stick to these 5 and see what happens. Just writing this has me thinking of others that I can add but I don't want to overwhelm myself (I tend to do that). This blog should become my life's journal. I'm a very private person and it's hard for me to share myself.
Here's to new beginnings.....stitch by stitch....Dona
