In January, the goals were revolving around organizing stash and sewing space, and there were some great blogs written and posted about organizing.
So the other thing I am supposed to do for January is to make my goals and plans for the year. I want to...
-Do the mending. Simple things like buttons and hems have sat... and sat... and sat... in the WIP basket, and I want them to hang and be loved in the closet instead. I want the mending basket to be empty when I switch clothes over for spring/summer, and again when I switch things back over for fall/winter.
-Keep the Progress in WIPs. In the process of organizing my fabric and cataloging everything, I opened up a steamer trunk and a plastic tub... both of which contained half-started things. Some of which were started in high school. And I am proud to say I chucked 21 things, making them forever UFOs(UnFinished Objects) to get down to a manageable(ha!) 15 bags/pieces of clothing and 4 quilts... And I'm really good with the variety of these projects. As I was tallying them up, I made a separate list of things that will take less than an hour. I want to complete at least one of these a month, and finish 2 quilts this year.
-Use yardage I have for a project, if at all possible. If something old will work, why buy something new?
-Finish 3 things a month. At least 1 WIP.
So I, Rev. Sarah McBrown, promise to do my very best to meet these goals, and check in monthly as to my progress in these matters.
Oh! January finishes:
-mending a shirt
-a new wallet- will blog soon.
-cataloging the stash. It took up a whole Saturday, and then some, so it counts.
