Way back at the beginning of the year, I posted my New Years Resolutions. And I must say I did better on these than any other time I thought it was a good idea to make resolutions.
I have done a really good job of keeping the 2013 photo gallery current.
I did switch the format of the labels to follow the suggestion of law enforcement. I also decided that I needed to go with a more generic label for these quilts. And the label is applied prior to quilting now. Those labels are not coming off.
I have slipped a couple of times when writing my blog post and used a last name, but I quickly edited those posts...so I am doing okay there.
Where I completely fell off the rails this month was keeping up on my paper work. I have five weeks worth to do this afternoon. I don't even have an excuse for why I fell off the wagon.
I could use the excuse that I was in a funk, or that I was out of town, that I was busy looking for my new car, or that I was concentrating on the 13 customer quilts I did in the last two weeks....but those are all just excuses. Plain and simple, I just blew it off.
So guess what I am going to be doing today? Yes I am going to be doing paper work and getting the August donation ready for delivery.
I have also started a new project, that I am hoping will help me with my organization of the tops.
I have this large walk in closet in my bedroom. On my half of the closet there are 6 hangers with clothes on them. I gave away most of my work clothes when I retired, for the most part I live in shorts, blue jeans and t-shirts, and they all go in the dresser.
SOOOOO I am using that space to hang my next quilt projects. I started last night. I took a top, found a backing that will work for it, and cut a batting for the project. Now those three pieces are all hanging neatly on a hanger in my closet. I even pinned the label to it. The only thing I haven't done is dig out binding for the quilt. My hope is to do one of these a day, making it easy to grab a project when someone volunteers to quilt one for me.
I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend!
