Last week I gave an update on what I had completed from my Fall/Winter sewing goals. So since I got that cleared out of my brain, I’ve been thinking a lot about what my goals would be for this summer. Of course, I always have projects in my head. This is just a more formal listing.
~My three girls all need a new church dress. It’s a little harder with all of them getting older and really needing more sophisticated patterns.
~The cloth version of paper towels. I keep putting this on my lists in hopes that one of these times I will really get it done.
~Various birthday gifts.
~A baby gift for a friend who is due the end of the summer. I don’t know yet what the baby is so I can’t be specific in my planning yet.
~FINISH the curtain in my little boys’ room. I’m so close. I’m just not sure how to finish it off, but I need to get this done!
~I need a back for the fleece quilt I made for myself. I had thought to do a fleece back, but now I’m thinking that a flannel one would be nice.
~My husband asked me for a fleece quilt – funny story here – He was talking about me making a blanket for him and said, “It wouldn’t have to be very big. Say about seven feet by five feet.” I burst out laughing. My husband is 6′ 7″ so I understand the dimensions he gave, but that’s the size of a small floor rug.
~Some kind of insulating curtains for some of the rooms in our house. Now that we’ve lived through a winter in our home, I have a better idea of what we need to do to prepare for winter.
~A duvet cover and curtain for my bedroom. I know the pattern I want for the duvet cover. I just need to find the right fabric now.
~I still need to make an overnight bag for myself. I really need to make a final decision on the pattern and then get the fabric.
~And if I have any time left, I’d like to try making a bean bag chair.
Of course, there is also the rug that I’m weaving and my son’s quilt that I’m quilting. Then there’s the gardening I want to do this summer and playing in the backyard with my littles and planning for the next school year and scrapbooking. And I think you get the idea. Life is never boring!
What projects do you have planned for this summer?
