Sewing Goals for 2015

I have to say that 2014 was a great year.  Some of my favorite quilts were created and one actually stayed here with me.  I spent most of yesterday buried underneath it in the attempt of feeling better.  Stupid being sick.  I felt so bad I didn’t even touch my sewing machine.  Yep, that’s how I gauge my sickness level.

To help with balance I have actually started a blog calendar to help keep me on track and able to move things around if I need to.  Plus it’s a great place to jot down all the ideas I want to see come together.

On that calendar is one scrap project per month.  This hoard of scraps needs to dwindle down this year.  I’m embarrassed to show these since I have bins to help me organize my scraps.  scraps 1-5-15

Throughout 2015 I hold to also finish the growing WIP stash that I have.  Each month I will post just how many I have left in an effort to keep myself accountable.  Some I probably just need to scrap and put the fabric back in my stash.

Speaking of stash, I really want to use up what’s in my stash this year.  Since I don’t really have time to sew for others, the fabric budget is going to be tight this year.  I should use what I have.  #sewmystash2015

One goal isn’t quite solidified yet since I’m really torn about the issue.  My Etsy shop over the last couple of years has helped fund my other sewing endeavors.  With Growler Girls picking up, less time to sew, and just really wanting balance in life, I’m not sure what to do with all my potholder stuff.  Pretty sure there are 100 plus sets almost ready to be whipped up.

Would you continue to work on the smaller potholders or focus your time on quilts?  I don’t think there is a best answer right now.  Maybe a giant Mother’s Day Sale or something is what I have in mind to help clear out the potholders.  Still not sure on that yet.
