Tuesday Already!

So I missed a week on my goal. Bummer! I am slowly getting the hang of it. The last two weeks flew by. But I did get Mi Mi's quilt finished and delivered, the Christmas put away and a few other distractions accomplished.

This week I have very little planned. Over the weekend my husband was asked to accept a new responsibility within our church community. We willing accepted. So this week the goal is to keep my head above water. He will be gone most of the week learning his new tasks.

Among all this, I do hope to get some 18" doll dresses made for my nieces. The three of them got dolls for Christmas and they need clothes.

Here is to a wonderful and fabulous week!

Make a List Monday

What a strange weather pattern we have been experiencing!  The weather has definately been on everyone's mind. Here in southwest Oregon, we had an extra week of winter break. Never before have I seen 9" of snow fall all at once. Our town shut down and we played and played.

Tonight the rain just keeps falling. What a muddy mess we have.

I was very excited to have a list to work on, a place to focus and accomplish. Then the snow fell and things shifted. Having four kids at home for an extra week really changed my plans.

Lets see how I did.

1. Quilt and bind Mi Mi's quilt
I got the quilting done and part of the binding. So not quite done but well on the way.

2. Take down Christmas decor and put away
Here is another half done task. Darn!

3. Cut flannel scraps for quilt
Done done done! Such a pretty stack of squares, ready to go.

All in all, with kids home and plenty of distractions, not horrible. Here is to a new week.

1. Finish binding Mi Mi's quilt
2. Major paperwork organization
3. Finish putting Christmas away
4. Start alterations on red dress

Wow! Already that seems like a lot. But totally do able at the same time.

Make a List Monday...on Wednesday

A new year, new goals, a new blog. Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict has inspired me. Each week she posts a list of things she plans to accomplish that week. We are in very different phases of life, but I can see how it could help me focus a little more on my plans.

So, here goes. My first list, a few days late. Hey, the kids haven't gone back to school. We are in an abnormal winter wonderland. It is beautiful!

1. Quilt and bind Mi Mi's quilt
2. Take down Christmas decor and put away
3. Cut flannel scraps for quilt

This is a small list but large in its own way. Especially because the kids are home again today. I do love having them home!
