SO…..today is January 1st 2013!!! Time to make plans and set goals. Note I have not said New Year’s Resolutions …….I don’t think they really work. But if you set goals and regularly review these goals (at least every 3 months but preferably once a month), you will find that it is much easier to stay on track and achieve what you set out to accomplish in a particular calendar year or time frame.
NO, I have not switched roles and become a life coach! No, just sharing that this is when I review 2012; update and reset goals for 2013 and start making changes or adjustments in order to achieve my goals.
One extra little tip here: be realistic as well as ruthless! Look carefully at all your UFO’s and decide which you WANT to finish and which you just NEED to GET RID OF! Not all UFO’s should or need to be completed. Take the stress off yourself and just give them away or drop them off in a bag at the Thrift store (do include bits & pieces which might be needed & a pattern or instructions if you have that). Then some poor, unfortunate soul who does not have any UFO’s can take on the task of completing yours?!
Once you have that all out of the way, you can concentrate on ADDING NEW PROJECTS FOR 2013………………..Here is a project you might like to consider?
I made none of these wonderful, luxurious pillows. They were all made by Linda P, JANOME EDUCATOR in TORONTO. The JANOME RUFFLER ATTACHMENT was used to make all the ruffles you see in the pics. Check out this link for a short video on using the Janome ruffler.
You might like to watch this spot later this week (Friday 4th January) for another post about the ruffler attachment: How to use it & which ruffler is the one you need for your Janome machine model. ……..stay tuned!
