2020 Vision is the twenty goals I set myself at the beginning of the year, things I hoped to make. I missed the report at the beginning of March for obvious reasons, and I’m a bit late now, but better late than never! So this is a report for the first three months of the year, how have I done so far…
Clothes; I finally made a pair of trousers, I’ve found they’re not the most comfortable pair I’ve ever worn, so I’ll try a different pattern next time. I watched a Bluprint class on sewing sheers, so hopefully I will pluck up the courage to make a shirt, looking at my stash I seem to have fallen for a few sheers! I’ve also yesterday just finished a jeans skirt, so hopefully I’ll pluck up the courage to make a pair of jeans soon. I keep looking at my coat and jacket patterns, thinking this is a good time…so, I’ve made one out of five so far.
Quilts; I made a baby quilt earlier in the year and I’ve finally got my Coming Home quilt back out, so I’m making good progress on that now. So I’m on my way to two, though I’ve also got a quilt I’ve made for care-leavers which doesn’t need a lot to finish it, so I think I’ll put that on my to do list this month.
Projects; I’ve done pretty well here, with two finishes and three on the way. I finally finished my Finery of Nature cross-stitch, I still love it!
Another project which was important to me to finish was mum’s memory book, all her unfinished or smaller needlework projects put together in one textile book.
I’m making better progress on my hare, the Anthea SAL is ongoing and I’m managing to keep up, I’m a bit behind on the Stitchbook collective, like I’ve three boxes waiting to be investigated!.
Things; Of the things I listed I’ve made zilch, they’re all still on my to do list – slippers, wallet, lampshade, jellyroll rug and a Luna Lapin for me! Maybe better progress next time!
I’ve just had a count up and actually I don’t think four out of twenty is bad, it’s surprising how many people are saying with all this time off it’s so difficult to motivate, I’ve certainly not done as much stitching as I anticipated so far, but then I have cracked the back garden 🙂
