2013 Goals

In the next installment of Gillian's Top 5 list making, my top 5 2013 goals.

This is my favorite bit, dear readers. I love setting goals. I suck at tracking them, I suck at meeting them - but setting them? Love it.

Okay, let's hit it. This one is definitely in order of priority - 1 being the most important, etc.

1. Sew something from every Burda magazine I buy. Every single year, I feel like I make a variation of this resolution, and then break it promptly. Not this year - I'm determined.

2. Finish a quilting UFO once every 2 months. Finished quilts are useful. Half-finished blocks lying all over the place are just plain annoying. Get it done already, Reethi! (However, I've so many half-finished projects that this goal could take over my life, so I'm just going to aim for finishing one every two months.)

3. Make a raincoat. Every single time it rains in Toronto, I wonder why I haven't made myself a raincoat yet. 

4. In keeping with using the things I buy, I'd like to sew one project from each of the 6 Japanese pattern books I own (all three Pattern Magic books, both the Drape Drape books, and Shape Shape.)

5. Participate in the 2013 SWAP, and in 3 Pattern Review contests.

There'd be a 6th goal on buying fabric, but Emily and Cindy conveniently announced the Stash Busting sew-along, and I'm going to join that and make my fabric resolution as part of that.

I like all your resolutions, and they sound like good ones I could adopt myself too ;) Sewing your own raincoat is an adventure, I made one last year and it was a big learning curve! But I am so glad I did it.

Great list of resolutions, always easy to come up with and just so hard to keep! Like the raincoat idea - something I could do with making ready for our wet season. Off to have a peek around your blog ...J

I like your "Top 5 of 2012" lists and was considering following along until I realised that I'm always writing lists and not all that often sticking to them. What can I say? I am easily distracted. Sometimes, I think adding something to a list is a sure fire way of me finding something else to do/make.
Also, I nominated you for the Liebster Award http://tigergirladventures.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/the-liebster-award.html
