sew awesome | 101 in 1001

I love lists, and goals, and lists. I had to mention it twice because of all the love. Writing things down pushes them to the front of my mind and makes me so much more likely to follow through with them. So naturally, I love new years resolutions and this year I made 101 of them. 

I made my list at dayzeroroject.com  and let me just say that coming up with 101 things is very difficult. I have an array of cooking goals, travel goals, crafty goals and so on. I like the format though, because you have 1001 days for your list, which is almost 3 years so you can have longer term goals to work toward. 

Anyways, I think I'll blog some of the goals that I complete. So here is the first:

I LEARNED HOW TO SEW

Last weekend, I took a sewing class at the Stitch Lab in downtown Austin with two friends. Four hours of learning and I came out with an honest-to-goodness bag (with a handle and a pocket and pleats!) that I made all myself. *proud* 

When I got home, I dusted off my mom's old Singer and proudly placed it in my craft closet, pretty excited to sew some more stuff.

P.S. The sewing class was set up as a gift to one of my friends by her husband, and guys, it was a hit! Nice gift idea to keep in your back pocket. ;)
