Happy New Year!
Time to establish another 5 goals for 2014. I've decided at a Top 5 goals post. I did it last year and I felt it was doable. In previous years, I've committed to too many goals and I felt the pressure didn't allow me enough flexibility for creativity (at least in my sewing goals). I left these goals somewhat broad so I could have some creative space to pick my projects.
1. Stash Busting. yep. more stash busting. I've got some fabulous fabrics -- I merely need to sew/knit them. I have some sewing projects begging for my needle with their stash materials already!
Sew at least one or more Wearing History pattern. I love these patterns and have two in the queue to make! If you haven't check out her page Wearing History Blog or her pattern page Wearing History Patterns -- they are fantastic!
3. Expand my knitting skills. Knitting is so satisfying. I love I can take it with me on travel. I want to keep expanding my skills. But, sweaters (jumpers) and socks still elude me.
Expand my technical tailoring skills. In my work life, I definitely wear a lot of tailored clothing, so I would love to wear some of my own truly well-tailored bespoke wear.
5. DIY/Home Dec projects. I can't believe I'm posting this because as all my readers know -- I dislike and procrastinate any home dec project. But, with my skills and machines, I really do need to get on it -- for a variety of reasons: to save money, make exactly what is desired, and to enhance our living space. (Added 1/2/2013 -- I also want to work on bag-making and cycling accessories).
6. Bonus Goal: At least four posts a month on this blog (at least one a week). Sometimes my work takes over my life -- especially with the traveling I do, not to mention balancing the travel with our home life. So, I am going to work on the quantity and quality of blog posts. I blog merely as a way to document my interests in the fabric arts, plus I love to write. So, I think this goal is doable!
What are your top five goals?
