Back at the start of June, I set myself a few goals to try and reach within the month. This was after reading a similar post from Handmade by Hannah. I actually really enjoyed having goals/ targets for the month as it spurred me on to complete things a little more than usual. So for July, I’m going to review the goals I set myself in June and set new ones for this month. 🙂 Woohoo to goal setting!
I managed to get the Samantha Hayes book finished just in time for the end of the month! Read the review here.
Two garments were created from vintage patterns. The crossover dress & a sleeveless blouse, which still needs to be blogged about! One of the patterns turned out to be a size 24 and even though I could have redrafted the pattern, I couldn’t really be bothered so I didn’t use it. This has made me want to recycle some of my vintage patterns; the ones that I know I won’t be using due to size. If you fancy any of the ones below, let me know and I can post them out … Sharing is caring 🙂
I managed to do my first garment from the Gertie Sews Vintage Casual book + the 2 Cynthia Rowley dresses I wanted to do. All are in the to be blogged about queue. I was super impressed with my sewing productivity in June as I managed to sew other garments in addition to the ones I had planned.
My fitness has started to improve, but not in a drastic way or anything! I’m starting to get into more of a routine with walking Maisy for a longer distance. I’ve also done Blogilates 3 times each week, working off the beginners calendar. I love Blogilates as I feel like it works without getting into too much of a sweaty mess!
There were 2 goals that I didn’t complete so I’m carrying these over to July.
1.) Bake some victoria sponge cupcakes.
2.) Complete my Westie cross stitch. I think I added 10 stitches to it this month…poor effort!
3.) Sew the wrap dress & pedal pushers from the Gertie book, and I want to make two short jumpsuits! :-0
4.) Make more of an effort to take photos of garments for the blog posts. I much prefer when photos have a nicer background but I just haven’t managed to get anywhere to take any…I have 4 draft blogs written waiting for photographs!
5. Read the below book & graphic novels, plus the first Game Of Thrones book(isn’t pictured).
6. Get back on track with meal planning as we have wasted quite a lot of food recently and had a few takeouts!
Let’s see how July goes!
