Who's ready for the new year? Not me. Not yet, anyway. I still need to eat turkey and put up the tree. But, I'm enjoying the calm before the holiday storm right now.
I subscribe to a sewing magazine, Sew News and at the end of December's issue, they included a sewing goal chart to fill out. It gave me an idea to ask you if your sewing dreams were fulfilled for 2019. Did you complete projects, use up some stash fabric, or maybe you learned something new? Did you have a sewing fail or two?
Let's break down the year, together. This way, we can set new goals for 2020! It's gonna be a great year, can't you just feel it?
So now that your wheels are turning, let us dive a little deeper.
What type of projects do you enjoy making? Easy, 1 hour and done projects or do you love a three-day sewing bender? Drafting your own pattern for a special occasion, fully lined, fancy fabric dress? Or, maybe you're like me and fall in between, and love to sew both types.
A few more points the sewing chart asks you to fill out:
So, I encourage you to write down these prompts in a list or doodle them on something.
What do you want to add to your dream list for 2020? Maybe you needed to add more things to sew up, or less. Heck, maybe you didn't sew anything this whole year because..... life.
I can't wait to fill out the chart and post it on my sewing wall.
Share your results in the comment section below. I'm really curious where everyone's at in their own sewing journey.
As always, thanks for hanging out with me and keep that seam ripper handy!
Hi there, I'm Annette and I love eating and sewing. I usually have a cup of coffee or tea with me, but not next to my machine because I'd probably spill it. I am the reason we can't have nice things.
