2015 goals

It is January 28th!!! I had my eldest son visiting from Australia all of December, then in mid January I began a small business buying and selling vintage items in a local antique mall, here is my booth:


So the first few weeks in January dissolved away in a blur with all my free time spent pricing inventory!

THEN I GOT THE FLU!!!!!!! so the last 10 days disappeared too!

So I find myself with a day at home today preparing to leave for a 3 day quilt retreat tomorrow with no idea what to pack!

It has taken me 3 hrs to even get my sewing room so that I can see the floor, because it was full of inventory for my booth, which needed pricing and then relegating to the spare room. Now that I have done that I need to do the usual sewing room tidy up before I can even imagine beginning to sew anything!

At least my WIPS and UFOs are still organized in the green tubs ready to tackle when my room is ready, thank goodness I spent time in here late last year organizing those:


So here they are my 2015 sewing goals:


  • enjoy my 2015 BOM in progress
  • spend 1 day a week in the sewing room
  • continue to sew for the Green Bag Lady Project
  • In August I will finish my year as quilt club vice president
  • Use my portable vintage sewing machines more often
  • cowboy quilt
  • VW quilt
  • VW mini quilt
  • Tula Pink lap quilt
  • seasonal dog jackets
  • eye spy quilts x 2
  • quilt 7 scrap quilts
  • 9 patch quilt top
  • Christmas scrap quilt
  • My headboard cover
  • quilt faux Amish quilt
  • Santa Fe inspired quilt top
  • Design 2016 BOM blocks 7 of 12 done already
  • Sew all my vintage fabrics into aprons, bags etc for sale in my antique mall booth
  • Make at least 6 charity quilts
  • Try not to buy much fabric except what is needed to finish WIPs and UFOs
  • Paint vintage sewing machine table and mount one of my 400 models in it
  • Use scraps from overflowing scrap bins
  • sew shopping bags from unwanted fabrics in my stash
  • sew several small mini quilts to decorate my antique mall booth
So there it is! I have a plan, we'll see if I can follow through.

In February I'd be happy to just achieve one of them - spend 1 day per week in the sewing room.

I tend to spend at least one day a week going to my booth and thrift shopping for items for the booth along the way, a day pricing and prepping booth stock and I do a tenpin bowling league for 3 hrs on Mondays. So there isn't a whole lot of time left in my schedule lately. Thankfully I only work 2 mornings a week from 5.30am until 9am at my local ladies only gym, so I do have my days free.
