    Listing my goals last week helped me make a DENT in the ironing I wanted to get DONE. Unfortunately I didn't finish it.

    There was working, gardening, swimming, cooking, and basement cleaning that kinda got in the way at the end of the week.

    So this week's goal is to FINISH that ironing and maybe try a few Crumb Blocks.

    What is your goal(s) for this week?

    Thanks QuiltingHere for the kick in the butt I needed LOL! I got my baby quilt all quilted and today all I have to do is hand sew the binding to the back Yay!!

    This week's goals: I have to make 3 more laptop bags. (I'm going on a RoadTrip with 2 quilting friends on Wednesday so I'm sure I'll find some inspiration for new projects--just what I need).

    Working extra days this week so won't get much sewing done. Good luck with the goals and keep kicking butt!!

    so last week i managed to get a couple things done (or at least closer to done) after making my list, still have to finish the binding on sister's quilt (i have 2 sides done, her birthday is saturday)
    i finally finished one round robin yesturday, so still need to get the second one done...this week!
    i have a doll quilt to get done, a friendship block. my secret sister package to get out, a baby quilt on the frame to finish quilting and a new quilt arrived saturday to be quilted...so i'd better get busy.
    i do think it is helping me get back into getting things done again. oh i still have to get summer and fall runners made too...i feel so far behind all of a sudden...but i wiped 2 things off the list last week. all i can do is try to accomplish more this week ;)

    I go day to day... for today:
    1) get clean up of files done from Friday's closings (5)
    2) do accommodation closing at noon
    3) go to Wyoming Co. to record documents
    4) stop at Wally World, walk through fabric dept.- don't need anything but will check if anything's marked down (need pool chemicals and Vitamin B-6 for hubby)
    5) back to office- meeting 6 to 8 for setting up a local Chapter of AFSP
    6) go home, but stop at local dairy for milk and eggs.
    7) oh- in between- call appliance repairman to schedule for Wed. am, car will be in garage for inspection and I will be home. Ice cube maker stopped working on fridge and freezer in basement stopped working. Hubby said to have him look at dishwasher while he's at it.

    I'm tired thinking about it. Guess I better get my butt in gear... have a good day ya'll!

    I have ordered about 15 yards of fabric and it is on it's way so I will be doing loads of ironing as well when it gets here-that is my least favorite part of quilting :cry:

    With only two weeks left before I have to go back to school (our year starts for teachers on the 26th!), I have LOTS to get done.

    1) Finish painting the closet doors in my daughter's room.

    2) Finish my July doll quilt. (All cut out, just needing to sew it together.)

    3) Kill the scary stuff growing in my dh's bathroom. Then paint the entire bathroom a BRIGHT yellow.

    4) VBS every night from 6 to 8pm! (I am the basket weaver)

    5) Take the kids to the zoo on Wednesday morning before the temperature hits 100+ degrees!

    6) Finish all the laundry and reorganize the closet.

    7) Clean out the garage enough to park my vehicle in it!

    8) Finish my two distance learning classes and get mailed off.

    9) Begin lesson planning for next school year. (I am teaching a new subject, so I am starting from scratch!)

    10) Get my kitchen ready for a new dishwasher that is hopefully going to be delivered this week!


    When all this is done, I am going to take next week to relax!!!!

    Dig up the iris bed and throw away all those that got the borer...YUCK!

    It would probably be easier to just throw 'em all out and start fresh.
