What are your pledges and plans for sewing in 2013?

My pledge is to only buy patterns and fabric when I am about to use them - rather than when I see them. this should have the side effect of reducing my stash.

I am buying patterns like mad in the BMV sale so I should be able to cope for a while.

I wasn't sure which section to put this in so Moderator, please feel free to move it.

I need to shop from my stash first. I know I cannot stop buying fabric but should check what I have first.

I need to stop losing my cameras (2 in 2012) so that I can get caught on my pattern reviews. I have 2 camera's that have photos of WIP's on them and I can't find either of them!

And I just can't get a good enough photo with either my Android or my iPhone cell phone.

Bottom line: I must MUST organize my sewing room, I know that's where they are hiding.

1. Work on my dress form. I have a dritz one, but also have the fabulous fit padding system. Hoping to get that worked out sooner rather than later.
2. Buy from local independent shops more and buy more independent patterns.

1. Drink less alcohol on my days off and sew more!

2. Organize my fabric.

3. Buy a sewing machine cabinet and organize sewing stuff better.

4. Patiently wait for Jalie's new patterns!!!

Sew for fun.

Sew more quilts.

Toss old clothes and make Summer capris this year.

Make another billowing camp shirt.

Do not buy a machine again. [hard....so so hard...]

Organize the sewing cave (space is an issue)
Move fabric from around the house to said cave (3/4 done)
Organize and file pattern stash so I can find the only pattern that will do.
Sew 12 garments this year
Master a blouse that fits
Sew from stash as much as possible (easier when the pretties are all together)
Master the serger (watching the Craftsy class for a bit every evening)

The whole list written down looks almost overwhelming. I'll have to bulk up on sewn items early in the year, the spring is mad busy for us this year. Happy busy fortunately

1- Resist the temptation to buy that cute little Brother PE500 embroidery machine...at least until we have climbed back up the fiscal cliff. I can live a little longer without custom-embroidered clothing labels.

Maybe....

1. Continue to make progress on the bucket of UFO's
2. Stop being afraid of my serger and just try it!
3. Cut into what I think is my 'good' fabric and make something for myself, even if I'm not yet at the perfect weight/shape.

I like your number 3!

I've been struggling since my move now that I work from home and have gained weight.

I'm going to stop being frustrated and just sew!

I'm going to sew harder things like lined jackets and things that take longer to complete.

I'm going to sew in the welt pockets, etc that I usually skip on garments so I can get them done faster.

I need to be back on my fabric fast or at least only buy what I want to sew and maybe sell some of my dressier fabric I will never use now.
