Last year I said: “I’d like to 1) sew a jacket; 2) learn how to use a rotary cutter; 3) take another sewing class; 4) make something with knit fabric; and 5) a surprise! (Hint, it involves building, like with wood and nails and all that. More to come soon, I promise.)”
In April, I satisfied goal #2 when I got my first rotary cutter and cutting mat. Cutting out is still my least favorite part of sewing, but at least I find it tolerable now.
And goal #5 was the biggie – Shedquarters! It took us the whole year, but we got it done. 🙂 Every time I walk in here I’m still amazed that it’s done and that it’s mine.
Now, looking forward to 2014, my sewing-related goals are:
1) Make a knit top or t-shirt. This is a huge hole in my handmade wardrobe that I’d like to start to fill.
2) Complete the Craftsy Jean-ius course.
3) Sew up the super special wool that I bought in L.A. last summer.
4) Try sewing a quilt.
5) Work on balancing sewing time and exercise time. This is a recurring struggle for me, as I’d always rather be sewing!
I hope everyone has a wonderful New Years!
