Make-A-List Monday - Oops! Tuesday! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Monday has come and gone - and I missed writing my post on time, so I am up early early early on Tuesday trying to get it done!  My Monday disappeared in a flash of unexpected activities (more on that later) and ended up with an ornament exchange party and a long drive home in the pouring rain.  Here's hoping Tuesday will be a little less eventful!

But let's get down to the nitty-gritty, and see how last week's list went...

1.  Make some samples for the Joann's class open house this weekend.
Done!  I ...

Make-A-List Monday - And It's December! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

As I sat down to write this, I looked at last week's list and thought, "Was that just a week ago?"  Actually, I asked it out loud and my husband looked at me like I was crazy.  It seems like much more than a week since I last checked my to-dos!  But Monday has rolled around again, and it's time to see how last week went and figure out my goals for this week.

So let's see how I did on last week's list...

1.  Finish the baby quilt.
2.  Make a matching pillow ...

Make-A-List Monday - And The Holidays Begin! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Can you believe it's almost Thanksgiving?  How this year has flown by!  And today marks just one more month until Christmas.  That means it's time to kick into overdrive, all while enjoying the season at the same time.  Trust me, it can be done - it just sounds hard!  

So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Work on the commission baby quilt.
It's still not finished, but the top is!  I had a hiccup when I looked at the photo I took when I first finished it, and saw a mistake, but ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back in the Saddle Again! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It feels like it's been forever since I've been in my sewing room - our trip to New York was fabulous and we had so much fun!  

We saw three shows:  Hadestown, Dear Evan Hansen, and To Kill a Mockingbird.  

We went to three museums:  the 9/11 Museum, the Museum of Natural History, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  

We ate lots of wonderful food that isn't at all on my diet - pizza, cheesecake, pastries, fried seafood - but wonder of wonders, I only gained a pound and a half!  

We rode the subway, didn't ...

Make-A-List Monday - A Very Short Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's Monday again, and it's going to be a very short week, because I get to go to New York City for a very long weekend!  I'm excited - the diet is going on hold for the weekend as I plan to enjoy all the tastes of NYC!  I'm also hoping to visit Gotham Quilts, which was closed the last time I was there.  

But before I go, I need to check last week's list. Let's see how it went!

1.  Bind my Flight of Fancy quilt.
Done!  This is such a pretty ...

Make-A-List Monday - Time to Re-group! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Monday is here again, and I feel the cold wintry draft caused by people putting up their Christmas decorations - do you?  My husband is adamant that we not put ours up before Thanksgiving, but all around me I see them going up, and when I was in Target today, they were putting out trees and Christmas decorations.  So like it or not, we're moving into the holiday season!  I'm trying really hard not to feel too rushed with everything I want to get done, and my list always helps with that, so let's see how ...

Make-A-List Monday - Crunch Time! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow, last week really flew by, didn't it?  And we are now officially into fall and the busy season - Halloween is this week and then stuff starts happening fast and furious!  I've been setting up Christmas parties this week, getting them on everyone's "save the date" list. But all the regular stuff goes on at the same time, so let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Quilt and bind the t-shirt commission quilt.
Done!  More pictures soon...

2.  Paint a backdrop for my Trunk or Treat display.
Done!  And I have lots ...

Make-A-List Monday - Halloween Is Coming! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Here's Monday, all bright and shiny and ready for all kinds of new mischief!  I do love the feeling of a fresh start, don't you?  But before we look at new projects, let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Work on (and hopefully complete) a commission t-shirt quilt.
Well, I didn't complete it, but the top and back are ready to be sandwiched and quilted later this week!

2.  Bind and wash three quilts for church.
Done!  And of course, I forgot to take a picture...

3.  Continue working on the special ...

Make-A-List Monday - So Much to Do.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

The weekend is over, fall has finally shown up in Middle Tennessee, and the realization that Christmas is just around the corner is starting to sink in!  Time passes so quickly - so let's make the most of it.  First of all, a look at last week's list...

1.  Make progress on the My Small World quilts.  This week it's tiny orange peel blocks....
I have all the blocks (for three MSW quilts) cut out and prepped for raw edge appliqué, just need to sew them down.

2.  Make progress on the Birch Bark quilt.
No ...

Make-A-List Monday - Fall is Here!!! (Finally...) from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Hallelujah for cooler temperatures, even if they are accompanied by rainy weather (which we also needed!)  I actually put on a SWEATER today - hooray!!  It's fall break for my grandkids, and it looks like that's just what fall was waiting for, because we're supposed to have lovely cool temperatures all week.  About time!

Let's get started with a look at last week's list...

1.  Make progress on the annual quilts - just Emmy's and Lilli's this week, though.
I actually made progress on all three!  Emmy's drama llamas are set in ...
