Under Control - Maybe

So I think I've got my procrastinatin under control. At least for this month! Lots of things on my list. Didn't realize how many things I needed to finish 25 things in the last three weeks. Happy to say that I've finished all but five!

I guess making a list really does work for me.

Went fabric shopping on Thursday with my daughter. We stopped by Rebecca's for a lunch. Such fun to just be with her, especialy since she is going back to school this Sunday. We bought too much fabric and ate way too much.

We both had a wonderful piece of Carrot Cake, as you can see, she had to take half of hers home!

I just finished a Disappering Nine Patch made with Mickey Mouse fabric that our local group will give away in November. I'll post a picture when I get it back from the quilter.

Procrastination: to put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done.

This seems to be the mantra of my life lately. It's not that I'm lazy, it just seems like there are a ton of things that I need to do or should have done already. I've seen other blogs where they list the things they want to finish, so I decided to try it. I took a notebook and started making a list of things that must be done in a relatively short period of time. So far I'm up to 18 items and I have completed 9 of those. The only really bad thing is that I am doing things that aren't on my list! Guess I forgot to add them.

My lovely daughter is home again before school starts on the 23rd of September, so we have been doing lots of things together. Which doesn't help with getting my list trimmed down, but I do love spending time with her!

Update on Necktie quilt. The lady who received the quilt loved it. Her daughter sent me a picture of her mom opening it, and when she realized that it was made from her husband's ties, the tears flowed. How very gratifying to know that someone really does appreciate the work and effort.

No great plans for the holiday weekend, just gonna keep plugging away at my list! Wish me luck.
