No, this is not going to be one those articles about unleashing the power from within…No, this is going to be an article about promises I make to myself in front of the world. Well, in the presence of the few people I have managed to attract so far.
Resolution number one:
In 2016, I promise only purchase fabric that I intend to use in 2016. To prove the necessity of that resolutions, I point to the box full of Laura Ashley wannabe fabric that was intended for a quilt that never materialized happened. And what about the 4 yards of yellow teapot-print cotton duck I have had for over 10 years? I rest my case!
Resolution number two:
Throw away more stuff. I suffer from the “what if it ever comes back in style” syndrome. This applies to sewing patterns, fabric and even clothes. I promise to get rid of more stuff this year. I’ll send my castaways to Goodwill.
Resolution number three:
Only plan for 4 to 6 hours of sewing per week. Anymore and it won’t happen. So, I plan to wake up early each and every Saturday and Sunday morning and sew up a storm before 10 in the morning.
Resolution number four:
I must admit, this one will be the hardest for me. I must read and follow the sewing instructions. This technical writer is the worst at reading other people’s work!
That is it! My four sewing resolutions for 2016.
