ORDER OF IMPORTANCE

I am sure a lot of you feel as I do, that you have so much to do that you just chase your tail? So I decided that since I have so much to do....that I should write it down...sometimes the little things get swept out with the threads.

So...that being said...here are three blocks for the Grieving Quilts John a'lee is asking for....go to my side bar and you can get the details. I have more cut out but.......yep....tail chasing again.

I did get this made just in the nick of time for our new little lady that is coming into the Young womens.


My son had a few friends come over.....to my surprise... I had my Go cutter out, scraps on the table....my slice out, cardboard and paper cutter...ironing board....well...you get the picture. I was working on so many things (tail chasing again) that if you were a by stander you would think...is this lady mad???




Well.....it is hours later, the mess has been semi cleaned and before the night is out, all will be in its place for tomorrow.




Won't you join me on "Sew We Quilt" on Tuesday? You will be glad you stopped by there, I am not saying but I think the giveaway will be so worth a drop in.




Notice my mail for the week on my side bar....I sooooo love mail.

Your star blocks are very pretty. Sometimes a list helps, I love list.

You are totally mad, of course, just mad about quilting! Love your blocks and tote. Keep the madness going!

Rhonda said...

Hey Barb, lists are great and binders and organizer drawers...... LOL..... they sure help me!

Fiona said...

The new blog layout is lovely and easy to read.... great blocks you have made... and yes, tail catching seems to be a stitchers dilemma...

I never used to be a list maker but I find that it helps keep projects from being forgotten and deadlines from passing. I seem to forget things lately so I try to keep a to do list next to my sewing machine.

A list is always helpful but I rarely use one for my hobbies. You know me and non-work deadlines - they just don't seem to be fun. The blocks are lovely and I know they'll be greatly appreciated.

I love your star blocks. I visited my son in San Diego this weekend, and we attended a Pacific Island Festival there. I wanted to see if someone from American Samoa had a blog - and here you are!

I am always so full of ideas and so busy that sometimes it is paralysing! Never know where to begin!! Lists are good providing you remember where you have put them!! Best wishes
