Resolved to Sew 2012

I'm linking up to Ali at Very Berry Handmade' s "Resolved to Sew 2012" giveaway - seriously there are some amazing prizes from some lovely UK sellers - go have a look!

I have been thinking about my "sewing resolutions" and actually I think my main one is to actually sew! I am very good at procrastinating - I should just feel the fear and do it anyway.

Looking through my stash, I have realised that I have actually bought the fabric for three specific quilts - Charming Stars from the Moda Bake Shop to be done in "Origins" by Basic Grey (I even have the backing fabric as well), the Countdown to Christmas precuts for the Bakeshop quilt "Starry eyed" and I'm thinking of making a disappearing nine patch with my Momo "It's a Hoot" charm packs (and I have backing fabric for that already too....). Oh and I have also joined the Swoon-a-long and Curiouser and Curiouser quilt-a-long.........I know I won't get all of those made this year, but I would like to get three of them completed.

What I really want to do is make some doll quilts - I made one last year and it was so much fun - so I'm planning on trying some new techniques and getting more comfortable with my sewing machine.

And I would like to do some hand sewing that doesn't involve sewing badges onto cub and scout uniforms too!

  1. Hi Jane,
    I'm your newest follower. I found you on the Polkadot Chair. I wanted to let you know I just put a bid on the darling little Hello Kitty sewing machine that you commented about, and now have decided to go up a level to the slightly more expensive one for my granddaughter. I am super excited about it, it is a birthday present. What I am not super excited about is having two machines, so I am trying to get the word out about this ebay auction. My bid is the highest so far at 50.99 and there is one day left. I did my research, and this machine has amazing reviews. It retails at 199, but have found it on and amazon for 119. So this is a great deal, brand new, in the box, unopened, undamaged. Listed as Hello Kitty Janome Sewing Machine Best For Kids. Feel free to outbid me or spread the word to someone who wants one!
    So nice to meet you!
