Leo’s Mane Sew Along

To do, or not to do, making lists, that is

I have never been one to consistently make "to do" lists and then follow them. It somehow seems to block the free flow of creativity. Gee, that sounded good. Truth be told, I haven't got the self discipline to follow them. However, life is starting to get really nuts. Rebecca's wedding is in 6 months. During that time, I have 3 bridesmaids dresses to sew, after I significantly alter the pattern. Then there is my own dress to finish. Add to that working 6 to 7 shifts every 2 weeks at the hospital. Add to that doing clients quilts, not to mention finding time to have fun doing my own. I think I am going to have to find the will to make, and follow, some lists, or I'm going to end up in a huge panic. So, the question is, where to start? Daily lists, or weekly? How does it work? Maybe I'll start small, and try a list for today, and see what happens.
Sew buttons on Becca's coat
Best Buy store for phone
1/2 hour walk (that's what the phone is for. I'm scared of a slip and fall on the ice, and having no way to get help. Two friends of mine have done that, and broken bones in the past year)
Load Charlene's Postage Stamp Quilt
Finish Nov. Star block, and take picture, and post picture

Hmmmmmm, maybe that's enough for now. It will be interesting to see what is left at the end of the day

  1. I came upon your blog when searching for the full instructions for the Antique Rose Sampler found in 8 separate issues of the Quilters Newsletter in 2000 & 2001 that you currently show as a UFO. I was wondering if you have all the directions for the Antique Rose Sampler from the Quilter's Newsletter magazine. A friend gave me several issues but I'm missing Series 3 and 8 of the instructions. This is the very first "blog" I've ever participated in and have no clue how they work really. It seems you are extremely busy and I don't want to cause you any additional work. I don't mind waiting till after your daughter's wedding if you could keep me in mind until then to respond. I don't even know if I've done what I need to do to have you respond. I guess I'm going to find out...Thank you. Ann


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
