New Year… New Projects

Well where did 2013 go? I like to think that I have moved forward in my sewing journey but between work and finishing off my degree not as far as I would like so here’s to 2014! I’ve met some lovely people last year to whom I am grateful.

The madness in the few days leading up to Christmas has shown me that I can be productive when I put my mind to it so with that in mind my sewing aims for the year are:

  • actually learn dressmaking properly (instead of waiting until those pounds disappear)- i have some lovely skirt and tops patterns to try
  • actually finish things instead of adding it to the UFO column
  • following on from that finish some UFOs!
  • start a lot of new projects and expand my skills
  • design, design, design

On the Popular Patchwork forum I have included my UFO finishing aims here and my new projects here.

And to start the year off I will finish this 1930s repro mini quilt.


Am linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes to help encourage this. What are your plans for 2014?

    I’ve really enjoyed seeing all your quilting projects and of course the quilt-a-long club! I can’t wait to see your makes for 2014!

    I’ve got lots of plans for 2014 – screen printing, sewing, painting and anything else I can fit in x
