Yesterday I posted about my word for 2014 - Simplify - and my Sewing for the Seasons theme. As I started looking through my stash a few weeks back in giddy anticipation of "What to Make, What to Make?" I let my stash lead the way...
Two file boxes of Christmas/Winter fabrics! Some bought for projects that never got started and some just because. I also have several charm packs and one layer cake in new fabric lines to use (I did show a little restraint this year on seasonal buys!).
One file box of Fall/Halloween prints with some pre cuts on top.
My "Lincoln" Schnibble that never got started this year and a few patriotic prints.
Elsa showing me a few fabrics that I missed!
Easter stash - I have had these Debbie Mumm fat quarters for about 10 years. Time to cut into them don't you think?
Valentines Day - a large stash of prints
I would really like to get these fabrics out of my stash closet during 2014. I think it's going to be fun to finally get to some of the "projects in mind" and go through my collection of books/patterns to get ideas for the rest. Here are a few patterns I've pulled for starters for my 1st theme of Winter/Valentine's Day for January sewing.
As for BoMs and QALs in 2014 I'm going to participate in RSC14, A Year of Schnibbles and the Pillow POP Sew Along over at Threadbias.
Plenty of fodder for NewFOs in 2014... I can hardly wait to get started!
