I started this blog at the beginning of 2012 so I thought that for 2013 I would use it to document some of the aims I have for 2013. This is mainly a mixture of crafty bits and some life stuff thrown in. I will be editing this page regularly to update my progress on what I have set out to do.
Make my first ever quilt – I started one in 2012 but never quite got around to finishing it
Make an Alphabet sampler – I brought this stunning pattern from Wee Little Stitches which is a superheros alphabet sampler, it will look great on the wall in our office/sewing room – Started, currently I have completed up to L
Make Simplicity 1882 dress – This has been inspired by Karen of Did You Make That? , her two versions are absolutely stunning
Make Madeleine Skirt – I was brought this pattern as a Christmas Present from my parents and can not wait to use it – Completed I have now made the Madeleine skirt and absolutely love it
Make Elderflower Champagne
Finish my paper dolls jumper and make a Kate Davies Puffin jumper
Make macaroons – the food (and the dress too – inspired by Punkmik) – I love macaroons and have never made them
Finish the year with 75% of my wardrobe being made by me – this excludes underwear and shoes obviously!! I have just done a calculation (July) and I am currently at 35% of my wardrobe being made by me (I started the year with 5%)
Qualify as BCBA – I have been studying for the past eighteen months towards becoming a board certified behaviour analyst, I am aiming to sit the qualification exam in May – Results in (July)…I have passed!!!
Live completely out of my overdraft – being a perpetual student has meant that by the end of the month I am constantly dipping into my overdraft, By the end of 2013 I aim to not be using my overdraft at all.
Learn to swim – I can kinda float and occasionally propel myself forward but my method is so exhausting I can only do about five meters!
