This week's list reads in part:
make samples of block of the month for guild
make samples for the fast 4 patch method to demo at guild
tie off ends on green, blue and beige quilt (yes, it's almost done!)
clean the upstairs bathroom: sink, toilet and shower
sew string x blocks together
iron million blocks quilt blocks
If I were really good I would write them in priority order. I don't always do that but I have today.
I list the steps to get to the total -- see clean the bathroom? I will probably do those at three different times because I really don't want to spend an hour cleaning the whole thing. (Who wants to clean bathrooms....? Not me, but Jen is coming up so I do need to clean the bathroom.)
I usually list way more than I can possibly accomplish so I can keep focused on what I want to do and what I next want to do. I finally realized I was sewing but not finishing quilts. I like the piecing the most so I would continue to piece. Now, I try to finish something and do the piecing too. The list keeps me on track. And, now that I am aware of not doing what I write down I force myself to review what I want to get done. If I choose not to work on something listed it's my fault. But, I can't complain if I didn't follow the list. That's the no whining part.
I hope to have a finish to report by the end of the day. Don't know when I will be able to get a decent picture but hopefully soon.
How do you keep on track with your quilting? Have you found a better way than a basic list. Let me know and I'll post some of the ideas on the blog.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie (I am so ready for spring!)
