Although I want this website to be really useful and provide reviews of the myriad of products around today in the sewing world, I do want to keep it personal too and share what I am up to.
In 2017 I have lots of plans for my sewing.
- up my quilting game
I began quilting a few years ago and really enjoy it – 2017 is the year that I plan to really get my head in the quilting game. I’d like to make a memory quilt for one of my children who will be leaving home in 2018 and so I need to get planning, source my material and make a start!
- use up my stash
Yeah, this one is tricky isn’t it? Well it is when your stash is as big as mine! I have plans to make lots of clothes this year and to also continue my tradition of making gifts myself for family and friends.
- get a new sewing machine.
Yup – I have been so happy with my Brother C6000i but the time has come to invest in a better machine – perhaps a quilting one? I am doing lots of research on all the models around and when I get it you’ll be the first to know!
- sort my sewing room out
It’s too messy and not organized – goal for 2017 is to have it sorted, get some new storage areas and perhaps even a new sewing table. Going to make some new curtains too and really brighten the place up.
- learn to embroider
I haven’t mastered embroidery yet and I’d really like to. Perhaps I can add some to the memory quilt I want to make. I want to do hand embroidery not machine, so it’s going to take some serious commitment to learning and getting good enough!
Have you any goals for the coming year?
