Building my own spaceship and flying it to the moon would probably be less of a challenge.
One of my intentions for 2013 is to sew more of my stash. As evidenced by the picture above, this will be an intention for many years to come. SMH. In my defense, one bin is full of lining. Whenver Ambiance goes on sale or I get a good coupon, I buy basic colours. The rest...well... There are casual-wear knits, cottons, bottomweights, silks, linen, shirtings, activewear knits and lots upon lots of wool. There is a pack of sheep shivering their asses off because of me. Awww...poor little guys...
This picture doesn't include three overflowing bins of what-was-I-thinking fabric, now used only for muslins.
Here's my pledge:
"I, Lynn of You sew girl!, commit to using at least 12 pieces of stash fabric in 2013. I also commit to using at least 10 patterns from the stash. Stash includes any fabric or patterns on hand prior to the date of this pledge, 15 Jan 2013."
I think committing to using 12 pieces of fabric is reasonable and quite doable. Some folks set some pretty lofty goals from sewing 3/4 of the stash to using over 20 pieces and not buying any more fabric. Yeah. I know me. Setting the bar really low works. LOL! I can raise it whenever I want, right?
Oh and about those patterns. Yeah, that's another thing that needs work.
