Where to from here…?

So with 2012 now well and truly behind us an the apocalypse not coming to save us form the prospect of resolutions and goals for 2013 what are my plans?

The intention was to keep it simple… but then I updated my sidebars and realised well .. not so simple. Ok simple might be the wrong word, each individual item I wish to complete is not a big ask in and of itself but combined there is a lot of them and well we all know how my spare time goes in my glorious workaholic world.

What are yearly goals for if not to be lofty and dream filled right?

So here we go breaking down according to type of stick / fabric / thread to be used :p

Knitting Goals

  • Umaro Blanket – Bendigo Woolen Mills Luxury in Ghost
  • Lace Shawl – Woodland to be completed
  • Possum Cardi – Start (and hopefully finish)
  • finish the secret project (Shh it’s secret)

Stitching Goals

  • Finish Rose of Sharon
  • Restart the PINN stitch Bangkok Lady
  • 2 Name Trees
  • Complete page 3 of Violet

General Crafty Goals

  • Sew a Dress – (50s / 60s style similar to the one I made for my PhD graduation which is now too big)
  • Complete a Quilt top – Quilting course to start in Feb making a sampler quilt
  • Make a T-Shirt Quilt from my favourite old shirts – Really really really want to attempt this this year and for about the past three year o_O
  • Sew a paneled Aline Skirt – paneled version of the skirt made at the end of 2012
  • Spin 100g of ixcehl fibre

It seems like a lot and well it is but these are the things I would really like to try and get done this year. The added goal is to drastically reduce the money I am spending on stash and general craft bits. This includes fibre, patterns and just general spendage. So an underlying goal to all of this is stash reduction. New starts will need to be done from existing stash unless it can’t possibly done. It’s not like I don’t have a mega stash for all my hobbies including dressmaking, although I think materials for the dress may end up being one of the exceptions to no new materials but I will need to delve into the great piles of fabric to see what I have that may be suitable.

So there we have it the grand plans of 2013. I really do need to remind myself that I need to fit work in amongst this and a mid year holiday to Peru… Bring it on!
