I’ve been running around feeling like I’m not getting anything accomplished and I finally figured out why as I was writing Keith an email telling him all the little tasks I had gotten done yesterday.

I’m a list maker.

I have lists for quilts quilted, for UFO’s, for stash fabric used, for quilts donated, etc. All of which help make me feel productive and keep me motivated – I just LOVE marking things off a list when they’re done – makes me want to finish more things and mark them off the list too.

For this move, I haven’t made as many lists as usual. My tasks are all floating around in my head and I don’t have a piece of paper with all the things I’ve accomplished marked off.

So my lesson learned is: make lists – mark tasks off as they are completed – feel good!


  1. I’m a listmaker too Mary, so I know exactly what you’re talking about. Ohhh, and btw, I love the new look of your blog. How are you finding Beta?
