If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then resolutions would be a great way to keep your sewing creative, exciting and maintain your happiness!
I know resolutions or "intentions" really help me personally to get focused for the coming year. They give me a direction to start and make some progress over the coming year. At the end of the year it is also a good way to reflect on what you have accomplished!
Quilting in the Loft INTENTIONS 2017
(aka explaining the vision board!)
1) Make Do! and this means to try not to purchase any more stuff unless I absolutely need it!. My grandma used to use the phrase "make do and mend" and this really applied to household goods and clothing. But sincerely, I have accumulated so much quilting, sewing and crafting supplies over the years that I can literally keep myself busy for many years to come and I "need" nothing at the present time.
This does not mean I will not keep up with current fabric trends. I just need a pause button on the having to have the latest and most beautiful fabrics! I am hoping to share with you some tried, true and tested tools and supplies that I love and work with currently over the course of 2017.
In 2017 I want to learn more and become even better at designing with EQ 7 It is so much fun and an effective tool to design with. I am hoping to share my learning with you in the coming year!
By noting it as an intention it is to make myself accountable by reducing some of my consumables. I also plan to show my blog followers some neat projects they can do to reduce waste, recycle goods and reuse some common household items!
I really do dance in my studio!! Not a guilty pleasure at all! I get up every 20 minutes to save my back and move! Please dont go there with the visual!! I also plan to continue to enjoy showing my blog followers what I am working on. If I am not enthusiastic, you don't feel inspired either!
Yes you can buy more fabric next year too! If your stash is not that big, you can buy more next month after you try some of the upcoming projects on this blog! This sounds like a fantastic intention when you put it this way!
This includes completing some UFO's, doing some wonderful custom longarming for my customers and being mindful about producing great quality patterns and projects for you as our blog followers. I will of course share my work on a weekly basis so check back often, I am hoping we can inspire you!
Happy Monday! ⛄️
