January Goal

I'm not quite ready for New Year's resolutions yet, but I have decided to jump on the bandwagon of the "A Year of Lovely Finishes" (January linky here) linky party - where you choose one item, or part there of, and aim to complete that item in the month concerned.



OK, so for January, I am to complete ONE MORE SWOON BLOCK.  Not a huge commitment... I'll build up to that, but as this project has disappeared into a box, somewhere, in the sewing shed (damn having such a good organisation system - you put it away and forget about it completely) - I need a bit of motivation to find it, pull it out, and get back into the swing of things.


A Lovely Year of Finishes

  1. Ah, the secret is to NOT put it away! You are bound to forget about it! After all, it is too pretty to not finish!

  2. I stoppped putting my projects on boxes because they kept disappearing! I've got them all hung in the wardrobe in my sewing room now. I draped the larger projects on a coathanger, the type that you can hang trousers on, and I've used the clip-type hangers for smaller projects. Now I can look in the cupbaord and see all the things I can work on - and then go and start something new!!

  3. Great job, more interesting than a resolution of getting fit or loosing weight, don't you think?

  5. Loving the fabric you've chosen for your swoon! No need to pick a big finish - small, achievable chunks are definitely the way to go :()
