What’s your New Year’s Resolution?
I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions. I’ve only done it once or twice over the years, and although I was faithful to my resolution for a month or so, eventually I gave up and the resolution became nothing but a memory.
I’m ready to give it a try again, and thought perhaps making my resolution “public” might help encourage me to stick to it. I invite you to join me in making a New Year’s resolution involving sewing–perhaps to work to improve your sewing, increase your sewing, try sewing something new and challenging, take a sewing class, or whatever. You get the idea.
Here’s my New Year’s resolution. I hope you’ll share yours publicly as well, and I hope making them public will encourage us all to stay committed to our resolutions through the end of the year. Good luck!
Since I work at least 40 hours each week at Threads, and I’m involved with a number of outside organizations and events, I never seem to have enough time to sew. As a result, my 2010 New Year’s resolution is to spend AT LEAST one hour each week sewing. In addition to sewing a new garment or other item, mending will qualify and so will cleaning and organizing my sewing room. If I’m away or for some other reason I can’t sew in a given week, I’ll have to make up the hour the following week and increase that week’s requirement to two hours. Think of all I’ll be able to accomplish in 52 hours of sewing over 2010!
Please share your resolution with us.
I speak for the entire staff at Threads when I wish you a wonderful New Year filled with many sewing pleasures and happy moments!
