Back in November I posted my goals for Quilty Habit's Sewing with Certainty series. My simple 3-month goal was to make a mini quilt using curved piecing. Unfortunately it didn't happen. I had planned to make it after Christmas, but was then commissioned to make a TARDIS quilt before Valentine's day, and that ate up my entire January sewing time.
So on the one hand I am pretty bummed I completely and utterly failed to meet my very simple goal. On the other hand I feel pretty accomplished in what I did get done--plus making a curved quilt is still on my To Make list.
Today I sat at my sewing machine, completely frustrated and annoyed with the project I was working on. Why was I making it, really? At the time I certainly wasn't doing it because I enjoyed it. I was doing it out of guilt, out of some obligation I felt (I was making one for a different person, so I must have to make one for this person too, right?). And then I realized that it has been a very long time since I made something for me.
So instead of sharing my completed item for a past goal, I am instead making a new one: to make something nice for myself. My sewing machine is pretty booked up for the next few months, but I am thinking a washi summer dress would be so nice!
Do you have any sewing goals for the coming months? Have you made a washi dress (link it up in a comment, I would love to see it!)?
