#SewMyStash2015 and other Sewing Related Goals for 2015

After a year of sewing mostly for gifts to give to others. I have resolved that 2015 will be devoted to mostly selfish sewing. Of course I will still be making a few quilty gifts here and there, but not to the magnitude I did this year for Christmas. I mean I have to give myself my slack, I will be a momma of 2 little girls come March. And my sewing time is going to greatly be reduced, but it will be well worth it in the end.

While scrolling through Instagram a few days ago I came upon the #SewMyStash2015 hashtag and was immediately intrigued. After looking at Leasa's idea, I decided to join along. The basic idea is to pull fabrics from our stash when starting a new project and have our stash fabric cover over 50% of the project. Now I don't have to biggest stash, since I did use a good bit this year for my handmade Christmas gifts. I still have quite a few projects that I've been planning out and know I can pull from my current stash!




In addition to my participation in #SewMyStash2015, I also have my 2015 Finish It Sewing page posted. These are mostly selfish sewing projects since they were the projects that were placed on the back burner during the last few months. But this is the absolute bare minimum number of projects I want to complete during 2015.

  • Queen size quilt for Derek and I
  • Twin quilt for Nora
  • Crib quilt for Baby #2
  • Throw quilt for myself
  • Poolside tote for myself
  • Lizzy House quilt
  • Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt
  • Mini quilt for my sewing space

As for skills, I would like to learn a few applique techniques in the coming year. Plus try my hand at free motion quilting.

This should be another great year of sewing!
