I decided not to make a long list of plans and projects this year. I really only have two goals: sew from my stash and use up my scraps. Both are getting out of control - I spent a bit of time sorting through my stash and my scraps last week and I know that I could probably make 100 quilts and still not run out of fabric.
Let's start with sewing my stash. This year, I will not buy any fabric without having a purpose or plan for it. And most of my purchases this year will be background or backing fabric. To keep me on track, I will report on my stash reduction efforts at least on a monthly basis.
Second, I will tame my scraps. My goal is that at least half of my completed projects this year will be entirely constructed with scraps (with the exception of neutrals or fabric needed for background and backing).
|This is my system for organizing stash and scraps - maybe I also need a new system! :-)|
And that's it. Only two crafty/quilty goals for the year.
