resolved to sew 2012

there is a very lovely 'giveaway' going on over at very berry handmade right now, it got me thinking about what my sewing resolutions are for this year, i've just finished another {small} quilt today, i'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination but i'm getting quicker at making a quilt, although i can often leave a long space between the different parts of making a quilt, i'm also better at ripping something out if i've gone wrong along the way, i really love making a quilt, from choosing the fabric, pattern, seeing it all come together, the time, effort & love you put into it, it all makes a homemade quilt something very special indeed, i do plan to make a couple more baby sized quilts this year, for friends & family due little babies, but that will probably be it, because what i want to really get better at & make more of this year is clothes, mostly for little O & myself, but maybe the odd thing for G too, making clothes was what got me started on the sewing machine in the first place, as a teenager making things for myself {really without a clue about what i was doing! although i do have fond memories of one particular skirt} i look forward to sharing my achievements here with you - wish me luck!
i love handmade
special thanks to laura for the sweet parcel of goodies you sent through, they will be put to good use!

  3. What a great resolution! I wish you plenty of luck, although you wont be needing it!

    Have you considered taking part in a Quilting BOM? It's steady work each month and at the end of it, you have a beautiful quilt.
