2010 in review & on to a new year…

A new year – I really can’t believe it’s 2011!! I can remember so vividly looking forward in anticipation to the year 2000 when I would finish High School and “be free” (free? yeah right…ha ha). At that point it time it was 8 YEARS AWAY. Oh my!! Now the year 2000 is 11 years ago. So hard to believe yet so much as changed!!

During 2010 I made 17 quilts – Woah baby. Sounds a few to me considering I only started sewing in April & had a baby in August! Recently I have become brave and started dabbling in non-quilty sewing and made pillowcases, bags, onesies, aprons, softies and more…

2011 feels like it’s going to be another awesome year. It will hopefully be a lot more of a settled year. We don’t have many major life changing events for our family planned- which makes a change I can tell you!! So that should leave plenty of opportunity for crafting.

These are my crafty goals for 2011:

Sew more for myself and my own family (how totally selfish!! – but I’ve given 95% of my sewing to date away)Learn and ‘perfect’ using my Klic n Kut die-cut machine (more on that later)

  • Learn and ‘perfect’ using my Klic n Kut die-cut machine (more on that later)
  • Learn and ‘perfect’ using my embroidery function
  • Start a little hobby business and get a website up and running selling my homemade things
  • Sell my homemade goodies at a market
  • Get our new local sewing bee Sew Bee-Inspired pumping
  • Sew something for charity
  • Release some tutorials either on my blog, in print or both
  • Release some tutorials either on my blog, in print or both
  • Be adventurous and keep challenging myself to try more new things
  • Continue to embrace the bloggy world, get to know all you lovely people, and maybe join another swap or bee – we shall see :DThat should just about do it. Look forward to seeing all of your beautiful creations over the coming months 😀
