A week or so ago Vicki posted a list of the things she was going to do over the weekend. And then she proceeded to do them, and showed off her crossed off list on her blog.
I e-mailed her and asked if it was legal to make a list of the things I’d been doing and then crossing them off, just for the sheer pleasure of crossing them off. She gave me permission, but I never actually managed to do it.
Today, though, seems like a good day to do so:
1. Finish Gage’s Quilt 2. Make a pillowcase to go with Gage’s quilt.
When I was doing a round up of the John Deere fabric I have or have had in the past, I forgot that I had a ton of yardage of a green flannel with tractors on it. No pictures of the flannel itself, but it’s the same as the green tractor cotton print in the quilt top. I used the flannel on the back. I quilted it, bound it (by machine) and washed it the other day:
3. Quilt Watermelon wallhanging that was buried in the back of one of my closets.
It’s been pieced for more than a year, not sure why it didn’t get quilted yet. I made a second one for my mother-in-law for Christmas, it did get finished….
4. Send children to sister-in-law’s for sleepover with their cousin, go out on date with husband.
Well, we called it a date. Getting groceries is about all we manage for date nights.
5. Make up a silly list so I can cross things off of it.
Wow. That was fun. Will have to do more of it later. First, I have some more UFOs calling my name.
“Finish me, finish me”
I’ll come back later and let you know which one speaks the loudest.
