You will have perhaps noticed that at the start of the year I didn’t rush out with a list of resolutions. I am not a person that can readily sit down on the 1st of January and say ‘I’m going to lose weight, rush to the gym, learn to dance the fandango and master the art of balancing a ball on the end of my nose’. I have to want to do things for a better reason than ‘It’s the start of a new year and everyone else is doing it’ (which is, of course, what makes the gyms unbearably crowded for the first month or two of the year!)
Anywho, Ali, at Very Berry Handmade, decided to give out an incentive for coming up with some sewing resolutions, and you know what? The prospect of possibly winning one of the 11 prizes has perhaps galvanised me a little more in the resolution department… (I’m after the £40 voucher from Fancy Moon in case you’re wondering ;o) )
This happens to coincide nicely with a task I’ve had on my to do list now for ooooh, a week and a half or so, so here goes:
- Attempt to tackle each of the projects that’s on my ‘To Do For Me’ list
- Definitely tackle every project on my ‘To Do For Others’ list
- Try not to keep adding to the ‘To Do For Others’ list with quite so much alacrity (see next point, I’m not really being mean!)
- Attempt to get stock built up for some local craft fairs
- Learn to sew curves
- Learn to free motion quilt
- Start my Christmas pressie making in about June!
I’ll be adding those 2 lists as tabs to the blog shortly, once I’ve completely collated them.
So what are your resolutions? If you have sewy ones, you too can be in with a chance to win with an extra entry in Ali’s extravaganza. And if anyone’s learning to do the fandango or balance a ball on their nose, they can teach me next year…
Oh, so disappointed – you can't balance a ball on the end of your nose? Oh, I am distressed. (o:
Very do-able, and good plans! I just got a curves sewing foot to try the drunkards path..hopefully that will help me…
Katy,I believe you could do just about anything you set your mine to..even balancing a ball on your nose..I have faith in you.
that is a great list to work from. I will make mine tomorrow.
That is a good list! I have a few resolutions, but need to organize them.. maybe I should put be more organized at the top of my list. 😉 Thanks for mentioning the giveaway, Katy! I'll have to check it out.
I'm thinking I need to start my present making in June too. Not many gifts got made for last Christmas. 🙁
Would that be a big ball or………..?
You've made a good list but I do think you need to add the ball on the nose thingy. I'm sure you'd be able to learn that little trick. You do everything you try so very well.
Great list Katie but sad that you`re not learning the Fandango! That was first on my list.
I want to hear what's on your 'To Do For Me' list! And are the craft fairs you'll be vending at this year both beary and non-beary?
Great list. Make things for myself is on my list too. And I plan on doing Christmas sewing from now until then so (in theory) I am not as exhausted next Christmas as I was this one!
love your list… i need to make mine tomorrow!
