Like many others, I’ve decided to start the new year off by reflecting on my current goals.
This year I am taking part in Bluebird Fabric’s project #sewmystyle
I’ve signed up to a ten week dressmaking course locally, and I thought that this project may help provide a stimulus outside of the classes. A garment a month is a challenging target which I am looking forward to pursuing.
Reading Passport 2016
For a slightly shorter goal, I have jumped on the reading passport bandwagon a little late, but plan to complete the South West Reading Passport 2016 by the deadline, which is 31 March 2017, for a chance to win a suitcase full of books. I don’t need more books at home, but I like the idea of a reading goal and am halfway through book 2 of 10.
After much deliberation, the guiding word for 2017 is spark. For more information about One Little Word, I would recommend listening to Elise Gets Crafty’s podcast on it.
No clothes shopping!
Following on from project #sewmystyle and going to dressmaking classes, I plan to avoid clothes shopping altogether in 2017!
Christmas gift ready by 1st December!
Finally, I am striving to get all of the key gifts made before 1st December this year so I am not manically trying to finish something on Christmas Eve (or on the day!)
