I’m not one for resolutions, but I do love a good quantifiable goal. Here are some of mine:
– sew down the stash: at some point last fall I stopped tracking yards in and yards out, and I need to get back to that. In addition, I’d like to get my stash down to the point that it will fit in the plastic drawers allocated to it, and not explode throughout the rest of the garage like it is now.
– take a break from buying clothes: I’m taking the Wardrobe Refashion pledge, at least informally, and avoiding buying new clothes through March. Honestly, I’ve got enough clothes right now, and my energies would be better spent sewing or on other projects rather than shopping, even if most of it is just window shopping.
– make a button-front collared shirt: I now feel competent making knit tops and simple zippered skirts, so it’s time to move on to something more challenging. And I must admit, shamefaced, that I’ve never even made a buttonhole on my machine.
– in the fall I’d like to tackle making (non-elastic-waist) pants, but first I want to lose a few more pounds. I know, how cliched for January….
