Happy New Year! Five Sewing goals for 2014

Every new year I set some new goals. So why would this year be any different?

My sewing goals are pretty boring for non-sewers, but I'm a sewer--so I'm excited.

Here they are:

  1. Participate in at least ten Sewing Pattern Review contests, I'm not in it to win. It is a good way to hone the sewing skills and help plan what to sew when.
  2. Review at least 20 new-to-me sewing patterns. I have been sewing mostly the same patterns for a while and need some variety. It is also a way to give back to the sewing community by saving sewers from poor patterns and helping them find good ones.
  3. Participate in the 2014 Ready-To-Wear Fast on GoodByeValentino.com. I plan to write a post specific to that in the next few days. I also hate shopping for clothes that either don't right or I don't like. I mean, an item that fits, with features and fabric I like is awesome. Plus, I'm cheap and love to save money.
  4. I also want to sew more consistently for my two younger sons (9 and almost 13) and my husband. They have requests that I just haven't done all of it.I also want to blog regularly, to help hold me accountable and build my skills. Plus, I'm sure my non-sewing friends might be pleased that I find others to discuss sewing with them. Seriously, why don't they think its exciting to sew French charmeuse without pickers? I mean, come on, it really is pretty cool. It isn't meant to be bragged, but amazing that the folded up cloth can be transformed into something real
  5. Use up at least 50% of my fabric stash. More would also be ok. 
Happy New Year and Productive Sewing in2114.
