Woke up this morning to -30,9C. Now it's starting to be a little bit too cold. And it is going to stay cold they say. So it is a great time to stay indoors and sew a little.
I took a look at last years reflections, and realized I still have some of the projects from that post unfinished. But thanks to OPAM I have been able to finish 33 projects this year and that feels SO good.
My goal for 2010 is to reduce the kits and started projects that is stored in this "gingerbread man box" and the white boxes on top of the shelf. I guess doing this I have plenty of projects to work on in 2010. But I have allowed myself to start on new projects too. Can't just sew on "old booring" projects.
So this means I am going to be a member of OPAM 2010. This will keep me on track finishing at least one project each month. I am not hosting OPAM 2010, but look out for a blogpost from Kris where she announce OPAM 2010.
And remember to list your december OPAM, last day to finish something tomorrow and to list your finishes. I have a december OPAM prize to give away. And I can tell you both I and Kris have some extra prizes to give away.
Hmmmmm......I also have to reduce the projects in this basket that stands on top on my bookshelf in the sewingroom.
Hanne and I have also agreed to reduce our stash of fabric. In this drawer I have "old" fabrics . I want to make a lot of "warming quilts" for donation. We have so much fun at our sewing weekends and we love giving these quilts away. And my goal for 2010 is to reduce ALL of these fabrics, which I do not know if I will manage, so I can throw away this old ugly drawer.
Another decicion is no more swaps...............Hanne, do you hear me.............NO MORE SWAPS for you and me. I rather make and send mailbox surprises during 2010. I know there is a friend of us (Bente) that does not believe us, but we will show her.
Saying for today:
Many people look forward
to the new year
for a new start on old habits.
