2013 Goals and Projects

1 Jan

My lack of posting should only indicate my lack of finished projects, not my lack of brain activity. While 2012 was certainly a challenging year in terms of sewing time I did embark on quite a few projects that I think will make for a very productive and exciting 2013.

So here we go!

Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild:

I was not the one to suggest Saskatoon start a chapter of the modern quilt guild, but I went to the first meeting, and now find myself in a significant role. I am really excited about the year ahead. We are planning projects, challenges, meetings, logistics. We have a newsletter, Twitter, Facebook page and we will have a website early in the new year. We have only been around for 2 months but we have made great progress. Consider checking us out, and if you live in Saskatoon come to our meetings!

Quilting Bees:

I am a member of a small informal quilting bee and my month was several months ago so I have some blocks to assemble into a quilt top (I’ll need to add a bunch of my own.

I also recently joined the Simply Solids bee over at Sew at Home Mummy, and it looks like my month is first! So I should have blocks rolling in to show you by the end of February.

Skill Builders:

I still want to improve many of my quilting skills including FMQ, paper piecing and curves. To help me achieve my goals I joined two block-of-the-month groups for the year.

Lucky Stars over at Don’t Call me Betsy – This is a paper pieced star every month. If you want to sign up it’s only $10 before January 5th (then it’s $15).

Skill Builder BOM at Pile O’ Fabric – As the name suggests this is a skill builder with a new skill every month.

WIP:

I have several unfinished projects. I do not sew enough to do a WIP post weekly, but I want to update on all my projects at month end. I’ll get a current WIP post up this week to serve as my starting point. I will also add projects that are not yet started but that I have in my mental queue.

Charity:

I signed up for a spot in do. Good Stitches {a Charity Bee}, I’ll keep you posted once I have my assignment for the year. 

 

I should have a really busy year ahead of myself with all of these projects but I’m excited too. My goal is one finish a month, but I have extended that to all crafting projects (I recently took up knitting and I have a few hand sewing projects I want to complete). I also signed up for a few Craftsy classes but I’m not in a huge rush to use them, so I will talk about them when I do.

 

Happy New Year to all my readers!

    I hope you have a lot of fun 🙂
