It’s been a long time since I posted goals for sewing and crafting. To be honest, it’s been a long time since I felt like doing either of these in an organized way. Slowly, slowly my fatigue is lifting, and I’m gaining an interest in life beyond making sure we all eat three meals a day and have clean clothes.
I’m really hoping that when we get moved I can get my scrap fabrics organized and find uses for them.
My first priority will be Christmas/birthday gifts. I’m not posting all my ideas here lest I give something away. Ideas for some small gifts are:
Then my next priority will be to finish up the quilts I’m making for my children using fabrics from their dad’s clothes. So far I’ve done a quilt for each of my girls. The next quilt I’m going to make is for my youngest son.
Then there will just be the things I want to make for fun:
This blanket would be for me. I’ve heard that they are calming, and I know that I like to have a heavy weight on me while I’m sleeping. I’m hoping that a blanket like this would help me to sleep better.
I love these pillows and would like to make them to put on the couch in our family room.
Then there are the knitting projects that I would like to do. I want to do another temperature blanket. This one would be based on my oldest daughter’s first year of life. She would like for it to be done in shades of purple and yellow. Then there are a couple of other knitting projects that I would like to do.
I’m sure along the way I will find other things I would like to do. It just feels so good to be planning future sewing and craft projects. I feel a little like I am rejoining life again.
What kind of crafts do you enjoy most?
