New Year Destash Pledge

Oh yes, it’s here…2012 and a time for making goals and resolutions. And what’s the sewist’s number one pledge – DESTASH! No more buying, or as is more appropriate in my case, get to sewing/knitting! Life has been extraordinarily busy this last half of the year, beginning with the birth of Elise, our second baby.

As you know, I had restarted faithfully blogging until she was born and then, well, life became all about taking care of that new bundle of joy and readjusting to life as a family of 4. Especially now that my sewing space is 1/4 of what it used to be, I really would like to it be contained and tidy and I’d really like to get out from under some of these projects and be free to work on what I’m inspired by at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, going through my list of projects, there are a lot of really great ones that excite me. But lets get them finished and start to enjoy them instead of allowing them to collect dust in the corner of our room! I’m sure there are more, and definitely fabrics that have no intended project, but as far as a good starting list on my project collection, here goes:

UFO’s – Projects Started But Unfinished

Projects Gathered But Not Started

Slightly ridiculous and overwhelming, isn’t it? And like I said, I’m sure there are more tucked away I couldn’t see on a superficial survey of my stash, but there’s a project for every purpose & I definitely won’t get bored! I’ll transfer this list to my sidebar so we can keep track of what gets done.

I hope whatever you create in 2012 brings you lots of joy and satisfaction! May this year be blessed!!

  1. Wow! I’m a little dizzy, reading your list, but I know that I have several unfinished projects as well. I even have fabric for a baby outfit for Colton. He is now 15 years old, so you see how my projects have gotten away from me. I started a rag quilt abut 4 years ago and I need to finish that for sure this year. Thanks for inspiring me to get started with my “Destashing.”

  2. Wow! Quite a few quilt projects in there. It’s fun to see you complete all these fun and diverse projects, though. 🙂 Just remember on days you feel overwhelmed that your family always comes first, and in this season of life, you will probably not get as much done as you used to. Enjoy each victory and finish line, even if there are fewer of them. 🙂
