30 Days of Sewing

My friend over at Pretty Little Knit Stitches is setting out to sew 30 minutes of every day for the next 30 days.  It will a challenge for her to find the time, she is a Mom and I imagine that her 6 month old son is wanting a lot of her time these days!  You can check out her blog post here and if you're interested, join us!
I am going to join in for this goal and try to spend at least 30 minutes per day sewing too.  I actually can't do this for an entire 30 days since in 22 days I am going away on vacation (yay yay yay!)

My goal will be to complete some projects that have been lingering... The Simple Modern Baby Blanket is so close to being done, I have just a little more of the binding to handsew. I also have a bucket hat that is pretty much done, just a little hand sewing is left.

I have a tonne of baby wipes all cut and ready to sew and another bucket hat ready to sew.

I also desperately want a case for my Knit Pick interchangable needles, and I have signed up for two more I-Spy Swaps!

Oh yes and there are two skirts almost done!

I think I will spend the next 30 days finishing these projects, then, when I return from my vacation I can start on a few I-Spy Quilts.

I know it won't be a huge challenge to find the time for sewing, but it will be a challenge to motivate myself to get some of these projects done.  They are lingering for a reason afterall.

Please join us if you are interested! 


  1. I wish I could join you but I think with my garden and knitting through the itty bitty toy book in just one year I have my hobby box full since I have a 2 year old and a 4 month old. Maybe this fall when they will nap at the same time.

  2. What a great idea! I'm going to consider trying this too. One of my goals is to sew myself some summer clothes and this would be a good way to stick to it! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yay! I'm glad you're joining me! I went to the fabric store today and I got so excited about the fact that I'm actually doing it, not just randomly stashing fabric and forgetting about it.

    Hooray for vacations as well!
