Sewing Resolutions for 2014 (Updated 1/30/18)

Did you make any resolutions for the year? I make pretty much the same ones every year when it comes to sewing, so with that in mind, here are this year's goals:

  1. Sew something at least 5 days a week, preferably every day. If it's not sewing, it'll be something with fabric, like my new addiction - folded fabric ornaments! - I sort of stick to this. I either paint, sew, or fold fabric nearly every day. 
  2. Organize fabrics and donate that which I will not be using. This is the hardest one. Thinning the stash does not come naturally! - Done, along with the remodeling and moving/organizing the sewing room. 
  3. Makes some clothes! - Ongoing. 
  4. Build a small stock of items for sale at the indoor yard sale in Williamsburg. 
  5. Continue with as much sewing with scraps and in a frugal manner as possible.
  6. Format prior tutorials for this web site. - Working on it!
  7. Do at least 3 more tutorials for this site.  - I think I did a couple.
  8. Finish the Cathedral Window doll quilts. - Finished a bunch and made more.
  9. Finish tying the lap quilt that is made. - Done
  10. Finish tying the Halloween quilt that is made. - Done
  11. Finish and tie the two hexagon quilts for the guest room. - The two tops are done. I started tying one and wasn't happy with it, so I'm looking for someone to quilt them. They're 100% done by hand and I want to do them justice. 
  12. (See a trend there?)
  13. Pet my stash.

You have a list? Even if you don't write it down, think about what you'd like to accomplish with your needle, thread, fabric, yarn, or whatever else you create with!

Happy new year everyone.
