Taking Stock

I have sort of got my mess of a room under control, so my efforts to become more organised are moving to my sewing.

Specifically, more organised in terms of what I'm doing and accomplishing.

So, in that light, once a week - a Friday or Saturday - I'm going to post a variation of this one. Basically a list of my sewing plans, works in progress, and achievements this year. Taking Stock of what I'm doing and what I've done, what I'm planning and what I'm hoarding.
