Happy New Year and may it be filled with beautiful fabrics, soft yarns that never tangle, and pliable polymer clay!
Last year, taking on a full-time job meant limited creative time/energy. With a part-time schedule, this year should be more relaxed and I have several goals/intentions for it.
- I plan to average at least an hour a day in the studio – so on my days off I will spend at least an hour sewing and at least an hour working with polymer.
- I’d like to sew up at least 50 yds of fabric this year. New purchases count in this so it won’t be all existing stash.
- I need dresses and jackets and a lot more red in my wardrobe. I also have a pretty decent SWAP plan, not quite finished but getting there. So I intend to fill those holes and follow the plan, and make coordinating jewelry to go with the new pieces, and share it all here with you.
- I have some fabrics that I really like but am reluctant to cut. I’m not sure why. But the point is, I’m going to make an effort to push through the block and sew up at least a few of them.
I have decided that my creative year starts Dec 26 and runs through next Christmas Day. I have made a good first step in the 50yd challenge already with these two pairs of PJs (lounge pants, really) in two different cotton flannels from the same collection. Snowflakes are for DH, snowmen are mine. We’re wearing them right now, in happily coordinated bliss.
See you soon!
