Resolved to Sew 2012

Sewing Resolutions

Ali over at the Very Berry blog is encouraging everyone to share their 2012 sewing resolutions by having a mega fabrics giveaway (with 11 different prizes) and everyone who shares their resolution either on her blog or their own blog get entered into the draw.

So first off I am going to share my sewing resolutions and then send you over to Ali so you can share yours and be in with a chance of winning some lovely fabrics to help you achieve your resolutions.

*A rather general resolution for 2012 is to make more time to sew.  Last year I was so busy with The Sewing Directory that the only sewing I did was out of neccessity (repairing clothes & making some blinds) rather than anything fun.

*Finish a Quilt!  This is my main sewing resolution for the year, I have around 4 quilts started but not finished so this year is going to be the year that I finish one.  I've opted to start afresh with some beautiful charm packs from Quilt Me Happy the pictured Blueberry Crumble fabrics. 

*Try hand embroidery.  I've always fancied trying hand embroidery, for years I've been collecting up embroidery books but still haven't tried it yet so hopefully 2012 will be the year I get started.

So what are your sewing resolutions, please do feel free to share them below in the comments but remember to be in with a chance of winng you also need to go leave a comment here: http://veryberryhandmade.co.uk/2012/01/16/giveaway-resolved-to-sew-2012/

Yes, come on - finish those quilts! Or alternatively, do what I do, and start them then send them to my mum. Ahem.
