Reverb '12: Days 20 - 24 (Catch up!)

More catch-up for Reverb '12:  this is days 20 - 24.

Day 20:  What was lost and what was found?

Boring answer but I managed to lose a top I bought.  I wore it once or twice and then it just disappeared.  I have been waiting to happen upon it in a bag and so far, nothing.  This was back in April but am still shitty about it :)  I "found" lots of lovely fabric this year...I have it all safe in the cupboard, which is rather bursting.  I am of the opinion that I maybe shouldn't "find" any more until I get some of the existing stuff used!

Day 21:  What's on the dream list?

In 2012 I ticked a few things off the sewing / crafting dream list.  In particular the FBA and starting to make clothes for me in earnest.  2013 has various sewing dreams (bras, more knits, well fitting trousers) and also my honeymoon dream - five nights in NY.  I am not sure we will go this coming year, and perhaps we shouldn't, given I am likely to "find' more fabric there :)

Day 22:  Your most important gift?

The best received in 2012 was probably the kindle, the best given was probably the dress I made for Gemma (in sewing terms) or the quilts I made for mum/Kelly.  Or the money to MSF - probably that!  I am hoping to give a lot less in terms of gifts for people that I feel I have to make in 2013 and a lot more of time sewing with other people and making gifts I want to make.

Day 23:  What will you let go of?  Three excuses which are holding you back...

Another difficult one for me.  I am trying to answer most of these questions in sewing / craft terms so  I guess  not having enough time, not being organised (already addressing that one...see later post) and not knowing how (the internet will tell me!).

Day 24:  The most important habit you will cultivate?

Finishing projects completely and then putting things away when I have finished a project...rather than leaving the thing out with only binding to sew down or a button to sew on, or finishing it off but then leaving all the spare stuff and scraps in a bag for months...


More soon x

  1. I am exactly the same when it comes to finishing things - things literally need a two minute sewing job to be finished, but no they sit in a pile waiting for months to me to get around to that 2 minute job.
