Last year I started off with a plan of having a to do list each month with 4 quilty targets and 4 non-quilty targets........didn't quite pull it off. So this year I want to go with another plan of action.
Wednesdays and Thursdays are my sewing group days each week I am going to pick a different project to work on each week depending on which category they fall under.....as follows:
Week 1 ........UFOs - Aqua/Lime tabletopper and other quilting/binding jobs as well as Teddy Bear TParty/ My Garden (I now deem these to be UFO's)
|Teddy Bear T Party|
Week 2 ........WIPs - Chevron Quilt/Spaghetti Junction/Betsy's Closet/Farmyard Frolics
Week 3 ........ BOMs - Edwardian House/Tail Feather/Bric-a-Brac
Week 4 ......... NewFOs - I have a few of these to get started. One of them is Sunshine and Lollipops
|Sunshine and Lollipops|
Believe it or not, it all makes sense to me! I just need a bit of encouragement and inspiration to keep going.
In the meantime, I will be spending January in the Creation Station trying to organise and tidy up after the chaos created by deadlines in the last couple of months. I made some storage containers today. And to make it even better, I used recycled materials and either items on hand or from the Dollar and Cents store.
I love these sturdy board tubes that my oats come in and the packaging encourages their re-use in the home. I just had to make them prettier! I had the double sided sticky on hand and the spray adhesive. The roll of wrapping paper was picked up at Dollars and Cents for $2
Just a case of measuring how much paper and sticking the initial edge to the canister with double sided sticky and then using the spray adhesive to glue it all the way around. Attach the last edge with double sided sticky too.
Get a grip Cath!! Here goes......washi tape around the top and bottom edge and now they look "finished". Two new pretty containers to go in my creation station.
|little white candle holder is optional|

Great idea for the porridge container.ReplyDelete

What a great excuse to keep buying those oats - love the paper & tape effect and the candle holder really sets it off as well.ReplyDelete
Wow, Cath, you've put me to shame with how much you've got done already this year. Love what you've done with the porridge container...if only they made Pringles containers a bit sturdier!ReplyDelete
Best of luck with all your goals (although it doesn't look like you need luck because you have awesome will power)!
