Losing control

My life.
I have (had??  --  fingers crossed!) lost control of it.

Since my last post I have managed to start, and finish 1 (count 'em:  one) sewing project.   Finished only last night, I shall blog about  when I can post pictures.  Accomplishing this will require that I either fix my stand-alone camera, or figure out how to post pictures taken with my phone's camera.

Don't hold your breath.

The project was a purse, and it is far from perfect, but I have a lot to say about that, so stay tuned.

My sewing goals for this year are to finish every already started project, before starting a new one.
This includes  (but is not limited to, as I frequently 'find' things about which I had forgotten):
*  Quilt for queen-sized bed to be kept.
*  Quilt to be given away.
*  Blouse for me  -- cut out, interfaced, marked.
*  Quilted wall hangings from kits bought @ Sew Expo 2010 (x2)
*  Knitted cotton shawl
*  Knitted mohair scarf
*  Learning how to use my new knitting board (probably ought be done before the above mentioned        knitting projects.)

Another goal is to not purchase any new fabric or patterns until I have sewn up at least 1/2 of stash on hand.  [It's okay to laugh  --  I was barely able to type that without falling out of my chair]

So:  there are plans, most of them will happen. If anyone is starting a betting pool on this  --  I want in.
Stick around.  Don't give up on me, yet.

I am, bit by bit re-gaining control of my life.

Pictures to follow.


  1. I'm determined to give away 1/2 my stash this year. Okay you stop laughing at me and I'll believe you.
