August
August was vacation month and then back to school time..... so no time for sewing. I'm determined to sew in September!!!!

July
I know that sewing just 30 minutes a day can really get things moving. So, I challenged myself to just that. Here's what I made:

May
Not much of a start but I was asked to make a ring bearer's pillow for a dear friend's daughter's wedding. (now that's a mouth full)

February - April
These three months were my time off from sewing this year. I was so exhausted from my January project that I didn't even bother cleaning my sewing area.... I just left it. I didn't even want to iron or anything. In March I tried to get in the spirit of Easter and made a bow tie for my son but nothing else. I spent April in my garden and the sunshine did me a great deal of good. The pretty colors brightened my days.

Not modern sewing related at all but sewing just the same:

Goal list for 2015.

I have not had any real drive to sew, so far this year (setting goals in June hasn't really helped that, I'm sure) so I will make this really easy on myself.

Goal #1: Use or Move Scrap

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose (so says the scripture) and right now seems to be my time for clearing out and getting rid of things that my household doesn't need or want. In terms of sewing, this is a season to Use or Move Scrap Fabric. If it doesn't talk to me then it will move on to a new, loving home.

Goal #2: Realize Old Goals

A lot of the fabric that I have is already earmarked for specific projects, so this is an exercise in completing and Realizing Old Sewing Goals. Off the top of my head I can count a handful of beautiful garments just waiting to be cut and stitched up. It's just a matter of looking back over my old blog posts and getting the job done. I'm actually starting to get excited now.

Goal #3: Crafting Through The Seasons

This is a roll-over goal: Before Christmas 2013 I made the decision that I was going to dress my house for every holiday and season. Basically, this is my strange way of showing thankfulness and appreciation for what I have been provided and where I live.

What are your sewing goals for this year?
