New Year’s Resolution #1…

January 10th, 2012

… sew more.  Sew lots, lots more.  Less iMac and more iSew.  And boy have I been true to my resolutions.  Resolution.   The key keeping to resolutions is to set the bar low.  Or really, not to even have a bar.

Helping me in my resolution is Lori, and clearly some Sew Cherry cuteness is involved (and having such fun playing with Happy Mochi Yum Yum)!
A sew fun resloution!

Some PKM cuteness from Pam is also on my iSew New Year’s resolution!
A sew fun resolution!

My sewing machine’s foot peddle is starting to get cold - back to sewing I go (and Pinterest - I never said anything about cutting back on that, expecially since Pinterest was the catapult for this latest project-o-fun!) so I can show more of what we’ve (did I say “we”?) been up to.

    love all that fabric…and as for that resolution? fabulous! i hope there’s also “make more fabulous fabric” in there too :)

  2. The fabulous Krista - Poppyprint allegedly said:

    Exciting, exciting! Those are such sweet prints your working with. Get the pedal to the metal so we can see what you’re up to soon!! The key for resolutions for me is to keep them all to myself so no one has to know when or if I do anything about them. One I will share, though, is that I want to stop stressing out about stuff that doesn’t matter. Like beating my kids at Q-Bitz. I don’t always have to win, right?

  3. The fabulous Cindy Smith allegedly said:
