As I head home today I’m thinking about what I want to accomplish this month. Without looking at the calendar I thought I’d have about the same “working” time as I did in August.
Considering I was gone for a full week, I was happy with my results – 6 small donation tops pieced and 5 quilted.
I’m only traveling 1 week this month too but then I looked at the calendar.
Most of the last week of the month will be taken up by appointments and packing for a month away so I really only have 2 full working weeks.
I have prep work to do before my trip to the HeartStrings sew-in. I’ve got 5 waiting for binding that I want to take with me to hand stitch and none of them have been machine stitched yet.
I want to piece at least one fat quarter top for our precut of the month.
I need to get Maureen’s king size top quilted and get the binding machine stitched on so Mom can hand stitch it down.
Since I’ll be gone all of October, I need to get my family exchange gift that is due at the end of October pieced and quilted this month. It’s a small project but it will take some time.
So I won’t get nearly as much done this month as I hoped and the end of the year seems to be coming at me faster than I’d like. I guess if I’m going to be traveling again I’ll have to adjust my expectations.
