i like lists

at saturday's meeting of the houston modern quilt guild, a couple people mentioned how well i was doing finishing up WIPS. i replied that i really just liked being able to cross things off my list - in case you're reading this via feed, i have a WIP list on the right side of my blog and i update it everytime i have a finish.

today i decided i need a list for this week in order to keep on track with various projects.

this afternoon i finally started my blocks for the 3 x 6 bee. i need to make five blocks, one for each person in my hive in the colors she has selected. mailing deadline is coming up on april 15th, and i needed to quit procrastinating. two months ago i had gotten it in my head to make min-swoon blocks for this bee. thenthat started to seem too complicated. i tried to pick another block today, but just kept coming back to the swoon.

i picked out fabrics, cut, sewed, pressed, and finished the first one, pictured above, for staci. i picked fabric and got all of the components finished for the second block.

which brings me back to a list for this week . . .

sewing goals
monday - finish red, white, black mini-swoon; work on surprise project
tuesday - pick fabrics for purple and tangerine mini-swoon, cut out pieces
wednesday - no time for sewing! order wedding present for J&E
thursday - sew components for purple and tangerine mini-swoon (finish if possible)
friday - no time for sewing!
saturday - pick fabrics for purple, chartreuse, grey mini-swoon, cut out pieces
sunday - finish purple, chartreuese, grey mini-swoon

if i stick to my list, by this time next week i should have four of my five blocks done and be in great shape to get all done and mailed by april 15th!

The block is awesome! It is ambitious to do mini-swoons for the bee, but you'll be a pro at them by the time you're done!
