January progress report on my 2015 quilty goals
1. Continue to count fabric in and out of my stash – done… I may not like the numbers all the time but I’m still counting. See my Sunday Stash report every Sunday…
2. Concentrate on one thing at a time – working really well… I have 2 small projects done (the table runner/place mats and the pincushion) and 1 quilt (Flowers and Baskets) this month. I finished the first clue of Scrapitude so for February I will work on the second clue (to be released on 2/10/15) and Tell It To The Stars. I am currently working on a bag project (see yesterday’s post) and as soon as that is done, I will get on Tell It To The Stars until the next clue arrives. Don’t tell anyone but every time I type Tell It To The Stars I want to type TITTS to shorten it up. Just like LQS and UFO and WIPs. But I’ll giggle every time I type TITTS so I’ll just type it out each time. lol
3. View and complete Craftsy Classes – I finished 2 classes. I’m working on my first hat in Hats Four Ways so that class may take a while to complete. I love Stephanie Japel. She’s so precise in her instruction and I find her hilarious. The other class I will work on for February is the Bag Making Class: Drawstring Bag & Bucket Bag. I already made the drawstring bag but I think I’ll make another. It’s really cute but if you wash it, the bag gets all distorted so you’ll have to press it down again.
4. Books – I pulled out a book to start working on projects. My idea is to just work projects from beginning to end (as long as it is something that I want to do). For January, I picked the book Sew Practical. For February, I’ll do the first project. I want to go through the supplies and for these projects there is always something I do not have so I’ll place the order for the first and second projects this month. That way I’ll have the supplies for the next project ready and I can start at anytime. I’ll try to order any supplies for the next project while I’m working the current project so that once I’m done, I’m ready for the next one. I find I often do not start projects I want to do because I don’t have all the supplies I need for it. Hopefully doing it this way will help me finish projects in the various books I enjoy looking at.
Here’s to a great year!
