Sunday’s Progress Report

Not much stashbusting to report but I’m making progress on my to do list.

  • The fabric in the Wonky Trees including the backing is from stash although I won’t count this small amount of fabric until the quilt is actually finished.
  • I did buy some fabric from the Real Women Quilt online store – I don’t remember how much – a few yards but nothing all that extravagant.

Working on HeartStrings quilts and those for family is one reason I don’t make all that much progress with my stashbusting efforts but it feels really good to mark things off my to do list, even if they don’t involve my stash. Here’s September’s list and I’ve done pretty well this week I think!

  • Mail NYC t-shirts to Adam
  • Load top #3 of 10 on longarm

  1. I am constantly in awe of how productive you are! Please tell me that you weren’t this productive when your boys were young! Otherwise there is no hope for me!!!! Its gets easier, right?!

  2. When I read your list I laughed that “Find some time for Exercise!” was not crossed off — as if doing all that other stuff was not exercise?!Have a great week!
