I have not sew in two months.  I have though created a list of 'things to do'.  Here they are:

1. - Nancy's table runner (a friend made one and gave me pieces to make my own - now to do it!!)
2. -Weekend Fun kit!!  From Connecting Threads - got it plus backing to make ASAP  (famous last words)
3. - 1 1/4" 4 patches - for the 4 patch challenge that magazine is doing (American Quilter?? I think so) Yeah, I picked the smallest one to do.  I am thinking it will not be a very big project but I do want to keep working on the pieces.....
4. -Borders:  Jan's UFO Christmas Quilt & Feb Triangle quilt, mitered borders: these need be done and taken to the quilters
5. -Rag Quilt UFO  - Aprils.......
6. - UFO BOM that uses Nancy's (my friends!) rulers - get it done and get these tools back to their owner!!!!
7. - Little letters quilt on design wall.  Yup, still there - not impressed with myself on this one.........
8. - Bonnie Hunters latest mystery.  This is started but now in a bag and no longer living on my cutting table.  I want it done.  I bought all the fabrics for it, I did not have much to pull from my stash, so this is a commitment and I want it now out of it's bag and DONE.
9. -Quiltmakers new mystery. Yup. Bought this fabric and it and the magazine(s) for it are waiting to be started.......
10. -Bonnie Hunter:  two of her quilts from different books are started and waiting to be worked on.
Jamestown  is one.   Fair & Square is the other.   Both close to the finish line but still need some work.  wow.  Nope, not done with this list yet but close.......
11. -Baby Quilt - not sure which one but I want one done a month.
12. -Victoria Finely's Crumb Quilt.  I can not think of the name right now but it is on the cover of her book and on the cover of a magazine she was in.  It literally uses up crumbs of fabric in your sewing room  and I have made the 12" blocks for it, now I just need to get busy on the smaller ones.......
13.-The kit that I bought when I bought the fabric for the latest Bonnie Hunter mystery.

There could be more - I have found more things - but I think this is enough.

Hope this helps get and keep me on track..... now to just get back in there and making it all come together.  When I was working I seemed to get more done - funny how that works.  When you have all day it takes that and more - at least for me it seems to be that way.


  1. I love lists! :-) Sounds very doable. ;-) ;-)

  2. Woman... your list looks like the inside of my brain. And that's scary. How do you focus? (Or is focus even the point?) I am having trouble also with the "not working" lack-of-routine. I found that it helps me to have a sewing time daily--and it happens to coincide with a radio program I like to listen to, so that helps me keep to an actual, scheduled block of time. That way it doesn't matter which of my many projects I am working on, at least I am making progress on a regular basis.
    I look forward to seeing your progress! You can do it.

    1. Thank you Alla - I do want to get myself back to sewing regularly but right now I am not doing that, which does not help with this list!!!!! I love the radio idea - I have done audio books to keep me in there sewing and listening - that works for me so I should go find one I want to hear. And I want to see progress on this list too, before I go add to it.......!!!

  3. How is progress on your list going there Brenda? Seems you've taken a blogging break too... ;)

  4. I have kinda taken a break but I can not seem to get on this (stupid!!!!) blog. I have no idea what is the problem, but it is probably just me being so out of practice that I have forgotten what to do..... Gotta love it, but wanted to say Merry Christmas and here is to a more productive year than this one has been!! ((hugs))

  5. Oh - L.L. really me, Brenda - so just to clear that up!!!
