instead of resolutions…re-sew-lutions

after posting my 2013 thoughts, i stumbled upon this great idea from so i sewed this – she calls them “re-sew-lutions.” i completely agree with her that 2013 should be about enjoyment, and i hereby officially commit to working on these ideas to help me have the most fun and get the most out of my experience in 2013:

use awesome fabric.

  • no crazy (self-imposed) deadlines.
  • be less critical of finished projects. instead, enjoy the thrill of having finished.

there is always time for tummy time.

  • to focus on enjoying sewing and not feel pressured to fill every corner of my closet with stuff i’ve made – i spotted this thought in an excellent and thought-provoking post at Dixie DIY.

napping is always a good idea.

  • savor the projects that take a long time to develop…
  • …but accept the pleasure and catharsis that a quick fix can bring

make sure the fabric coordinates with the fur.

    Great post! These are all such excellent goals– it’s too easy to strip away all the fun in sewing and be left with a chore.

    You know I’m down with this! I just can’t cope with un-fun, un-exciting sewing.
