I believe that I have set myself realistic goals by not adding too many new projects to the ones I have in progress.
I have two main areas I want to concentrate on;
- One, is to finish all the projects in this basket which are at various stages of completion
and the other goal is to used up as many scraps as I can and end up with only one scrap bin.
This goal can lead to many possibilities for new projects and creativity so I must be vigilant as not to create additional UFO's. I don't want to start any new projects unless I have completed an UFO and the goals set are on track... Sounds simple, right ? Let's see how it all turns out.
To finish off, I am sharing a project I completed a while ago. Its a fabric rope/cord basket.
The technique involves wrapping strips of fabric around rope/cord and then sew the covered rope to shape it in a form of a basket. The possibilities are endless from placemats to much more elaborate baskets. I decorated it with this funky bead trimming I purchased in Canada.
For further inspiration I rolled up several 5" squares of different fabrics and placed them inside... love it !
Happy 2011 to everyone and may you be inspired in your creativity !!!
