52 in 52

It’s July already, that also means that half the year is over. As you may not know I decided to sew 52 “things” this year, basically one per week. I managed to do this last year and found it a good motivator to keep going. I tend to daydream about what I could make one day, to read blogs and imagine myself sewing the same things (one day), to make lots of lists etc. In short, if I don’t force myself, I do plan but I don’t do.

Those 52 can be of any size or difficulty, the important thing is to actually sew. You can read as much as you want about sewing, but if you want to get better at it, you just have to sew.
So, where am I in this challenge? I have so far completed 35 items which means I am quite ahead of the game. Most of them were easy and fast to sew, some took a little more time (Pendrell Blouse, Crescent Skirt…). Many didn't quite turn out how they should have. I still haven’t undertaken a big project, like a dress or trousers. I hope to do this before the year ends, though.
Coming up next, number 36 and 37, a costume and a ridiculously big hat.

  1. Goals are good! And reading blogs is inspiring to me, too.

    (However, sometimes when I don't meet my goals, I get really frustrated even though I'm the one who set the goal... Very silly. Need to learn to let go sometimes.)
