Happy new sewing year to all my blogging friends.
Hope 2013 will bring a lot of sewingtime and happiness in the sewing room. I guess you, like me have a lot of WISP’s stored away there. Every year my intentions is to have focus projects every week (month) to finally get some finishes. I will join OPAM 2013 because this way I push myself to have at least one finish each month. In 2012 I had no finish in november (shame on me) but I had a total of 140 finishes for the whole year.
Keeping focus usually starts very well in the beginning of the year. But then there is so much inspiration and temptations. and new projects always find their way to my sewingroom.
My one and only new year promise this year is just to have fun in my sewingroom. Project that makes me feel bad, or I feel is booooooooring to sew on right now, is allowed to be stored away (forgotten), given away or just thrown away. And new fabric is bought to be used at once.
So please join me: Let’s have fun in the sewingroom.
Today I looked through some of my boxes in my sewingroom to check out which projects will have my focus right now. I love to store my project in all kind of boxes. I hate plasticbags and try to keep my projects in boxes or in sewingpurses.
Box number 1 stores my snowmen. I gave Hanne these as a challenge in her adventcalendar. I have finished the first three, and today I spendt some time prepping all the snowmen + the center block stitchery. Now it will be easy to take with me when I need som easy sewing. Goal: To have this one finished before summer starts.
In box number 2 you can see the log cabin blocks I started some months ago. I have done 21 blocks, but still have a lot of blocks to make. Note to myself: Try to make at least five blocks each week.
In box number three is a project I want to make, but have done done so much on yet. As you all know I love needleturn, so I will enjoy making these blocks. Two are already done, and I have four more ready to be appliqued. Perhaps not my first priority now, but this will be my spring/summer focus. Hanne; do you remember you telling me that you too wanted to make this quilt. Are you still with me on this. Always fun to have someone to sew along with.
And of course, in box number four you can see my basket blocks. I love this quilt and my goal is to have it finished before I meet Sue again in april. I have started to applique on the center block and have only 14 basketblocks left to applique. I guess this project will have my first priority right now.
Box number five stores the five finished blocks for the Red Home quilt. I am so looking forward to start working on this quilt again. Looking through the box I also found the stitchery for the table centre from this book. I had almost forgotten I had finished stitching it. Love this book and there is so many more things I want to make from it.
Box number six stores a project I have not worked on for a long time. It is the antique sampler quilt (design Sue Daley). Just have to applique the outher border and the top is finished. Goal: Perhaps have the top finished before april??
Not stored in a box, but this is also a project I will enjoy working on in 2013. Another Sue Daley project. This is just going to be a “having fun” project. Make a block now and then and just have fun playing with the paper pieces. And some day there will be a quilt in red and white.
So this is what SOME of my boxes stores. And I have SEVERAL MORE boxex and sewingpurses that stores WISPS, but I have showed you the one I want to have focus on now in 2013 (among new projects I know will come LOL)
Now my question for you is: What’s in your boxes?
Make a blogpost and give me a little notice about when you have posted it.
Saying for today:
