Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

Happy 2016!

Sew many plans, sew many goals, sew many ideas swirling in my head...how about you?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on 2015 and your plans for 2016!

For me, I know what I didn't do pretty clearly...
1.  Bra sewing.  Nope, didn't happen.  If I don't set a completion date, it won't happen so my goal is by 2-1-16 to have perfected the fit of at least one bra.  
2.  Quilts.  I had four in the queue.  I complete the top of one, but with that one only being halfway completed, I've got a long way to go! My goal is to have the one that is almost complete done by January 31st.  

New goals (and completion dates!),  As a friend once so logically said, "A goal without a completion date is just a wish."  Well said!!
1.  Find the perfect blouse pattern.  After finding it, create the perfect white blouse by June 1st  It is about time!
2.  Work on tailoring techniques such as with a channel type jacket.  Completion date is March 1st.  
3.  Finish at least one additional quilt in the queue.  With three additional kits, this must be done by September 30th.
4.  This goal is reserved for after completing these three new goals plus the two from last year.  If I complete all these, which I sincerely hope to, then I consider a new goal very appropriate!

Happy sewing all!  I love hearing from you so please let me know your thoughts!


  1. Good luck with your sewing goals for 2016, Sue. If only I could be so organised.

    1. Haha, I hope that at least half of these get met!

  2. I need to make more plans. Seriously- I need to see in a direction- with goals! No more whim sewing that matches nothing. So my goal is to set goals. Wow- my vagueness sounds almost political!

    1. I am unbelievably vague when it comes to sewing prttynpnk, we will see how this goes!

  3. Sounds like a great plan! I would love to get a blouse perfected too, I have been practicing button holes (I have a phobia!) I've also got a coat (maybe 2) and a well fitting black skirt for starters

    1. You are off to a super start joen! Happy sewing!
