Its a new year for Ideal Stitches! Time for resewlutions!
I am planning to spring clean the studio and go through everything and declutter and reorganize. I may have a Sew Sale if my pile to get rid of is large enough. It also means I will run across those UFO’s that I have hidden and have to make a decision to scrap it or finish it. My space is finite and I have to use it efficiently and I know I have some items that are just taking up valuable real estate!
It’s also good to see what I have in my inventory. I know when I went through my quilt patterns before my trip to the Houston Quilt Show it was because I wanted to know what I had so I would not purchase a duplicate but what I found out is that I have enough patterns to make quilts for 3 lifetimes and didn’t need to buy any more patterns. So that was a money saver!
My other resolution is to make time to put my own quilt tops on the frame, hopefully one a month. Today I am finishing the binding on my Chillingsworth Skeleton quilt and it will be ready for Halloween 2016. I know of at least 12 tops in my closet ready to be quilted. Maybe one a month is too lofty of a goal but even if I could quilt a top and bind it the next month I would start to whittle down my UQO (Un Quilted Objects).
Currently I am organizing my digital files for my robotic system and setting up a data base and checking the tags in my software. Very shortly there is going to be a huge upgrade in my robotics software and I want to have everything in order before it hits.
That’s enough to keep me busy in 2016. What are your resewlutions for 2016?
