In the past, I have tried doing monthly sewing goals, but it never really worked out all that well.  However, creating a flexible list that spanned a few months worked out pretty well! With the exception of a few items, I crossed off a good chunk of my list for the summer. This is a pretty lengthy post, but I’m going to try to keep it as short as possible!
