The Good - I sewed a lot of fabric this year. It became a forced issue to get the fabric off the stash shelf. I made a consorted effort to use up the fabric so I can buy a few new pieces.
The Bad - Our basement flooded on April 8 and we didn't get it back for 8 weeks. My sciatic nerve flared between late April and June and all the pain and stress I was feeling gave me a good case of gastro issues.
With most of the bad behind us, we look at 2020.
2020This year is a move towards balance in our lives. For me that means balancing sewing, home, and travel.
- Self care
- Loose 25 lbs. this year through healthy eating, moving more, and drinking more fluids
- Continue going to WW at Sackville as it is a great fit for me at this time.
- Get work done upstairs as we have planned
- Get our front porch boards redone and have the back deck done.
- Yard work by me. I need to get outside more and enjoy the yard.
- Sew 50 meters of fabric this year from the stash.
- Continue with monthly to do list to keep focused on sewing down the stash.
- Sew up half of the Christmas fabrics.
- Try to complete half of the UFO's in the sewing room.
- Do 1 embroidery project each month.
- Test sew for the dolls.
- Finish the sewing room decor. Desk and filing cabinet need to be purchased and pictures hung.
- Balance sewing with life - sew more in winter, less in summer
- Finish the Couture Sewing (doll) Academy.
- Knit using a variety of yarn weights from the stash.
- Knit test patterns for the dolls. This is something I enjoy.
- Do Sweater 101 (child's size) so I can knit myself a nice sweater.
- Think about renewing my membership with the Knitting Guild Association and redo the beginner's class. I'm ready now that I've knit a lot in the past 2 years.
- Do some exploring during the nice weather once to twice a month.
- Visit Newfoundland if possible.
- Read a book now and again.
I am looking forward to 2020.
