Oh yeah remember this?

So I had this list at the start of the year…

And things have taken a longer time, with different order and approach, so it looks like this now:

I have however nearly finished a quilt for a magazine (not yet written up) and I don’t think I will make another Hank quilt now, I think I will make a horse quilt for the Stampede quilt show. In addition, I have made progress on two WIPs and done a little towards my summer target of the Quilt Workout pattern. I’ve also started cutting out my late spring magazine project, so things are a lot more fluid. My sister’s wedding is now not happening (this year anyway) so I will be around early summer still. I don’t care about those clothing alterations and my bee words can wait too.

Target for this weekend is to finish up the first magazine quilt and cut out for a second (it’s cheaper to post two at once) and write up a pattern for release. If I get time I may start designing my horse quilt too. Maybe. I have to plan the first half of my class on Tuesday night and maybe make some handouts. They make me feel more comfortable. Did I tell you that my class went well, it was scary at first but I felt like I really passed on some good tips and didn’t forget a thing. I love sewing right now, LOVE it. I don’t have enough time in the day for it.

So sorry by the way, I have a few people to reply to still because my email still won’t send. I am really hoping it will be back to normal any day now.

    Yeah, that list…
    I have one too – and it’s had to become more of a guideline than a hard-and-fast “I have to finish this NOW!” kind of list. Too many things that are out of my control have changed my plans, and I’ve learned that I can fuss about it, or just roll with the punches. Certain things still have to remain priorities, but when I can ease up a bit, I find it makes my life easier to cope with.
    And, if it’s important enough, it will get done!

    Sounds like you are getting your mojo back and the wedding postponed will take off some time pressures x
