Blogfire: What's up for 2010

Good question. I am still not 100% sure. I know I want to focus on making just a few bag designs and not keep trying new ones after just a few of one design. I even think I know which ones - woo hoo!

I do know I want to start creating other things, like quilts,

table runner, coasters,

fabric baskets, etc.

And don't forget painting again.

Plus, I have some clay I would like to play with...mostly buttons & pendant type things for my bags. It gets pricey to buy them elsewhere.
It is the how that I need to work on. I can go an entire week and not feel like I made anything. I talked about scheduling the other day...this is where I can find the how...which is more like a when. Within sewing time I will subdivide into bags -v- other. yippee? 2010? Me Me Me. Hubby tells me to spend more time for me, so I shall try. Going to the gym is by far the number 1 thing on the me list. I have lots of pounds to shed and moving more & scheduling (there's that word again) my meals will help. So will My Daily Plate. I've dabbled with lots of online diet trackers & even my own version on Excel, but so far this one is my fave. I am going to steer back towards a primarily veggie diet too. I felt so great physically back when I was a vegetarian. I veered when i was pregnant & just never got back to it. Although, there's not lots of meat anyway...not much of a beef fan. Wish me luck.

So what things are you going to change or try to keep on track with?


  1. I was just thinking that I needed to zero in on one type of bag instead of making a couple and then finding another pattern that I "just have to try". LOL I am going to have to put on blinders when I pass by patterns.

  2. Lots of fun things to work on this year! Best of luck with everything and hope the exercising and diet goes well too!

  3. I need to sit down and make some sort of schedule too! I'm planning to go to the gym and cooking better too. Just doesn't seem like there's enough time to do everything. I might have to stop my online shops - doesn't seem like I sell anything much anyway, online. But I like having them.

    Love the idea of making your own buttons for your bags. Sounds fun! {:-D

  4. Sounds great! I'm with you! I need to watch my eating habits too, planned meals would be so much better than "grabbing and snacking!"

  5. Love the fabric basket :)

    And I love that you are taking time for yourself in 2010...we all need that!

  6. Good luck with your goals! Personally, I'm about to start exercising again-- I have bad knees and plantar fasciitis in my left foot, but I finally found something I can do that won't exacerbate my problems. And cutting out fast food almost entirely. I'm looking forward to it all, so I think that's half the battle! :)

  7. wishing you the best of success! Your fabric creations are wonderful so far, so will be, too, your new ones. Don't forget napkins!
    lots of luck on the exercise/dieting thing! Many of us are right there with you. I have a few pounds to shed as well. I'm already a vegetarian, but need to cut down on bread products. That said, I'm planning on making a pizza today. But hey, I'm going to the gym, too!
