Getting a Plan

I realized today the problem with my lack of blogging, Tweeting, podcasting, and, most importantly, sewing is I don't have a plan. Okay, so I'm also slowing down a bit, heading into Week 30 of my pregnancy. But I'm managing to get plenty of other things done, so I should be able to squeeze in more of this wonderful hobby of mine than I have been.

So, that being said, Katie over at Katie's Quilting Corner inspired me to write a weekly goal list. She publishes a list on her blog regularly as a public declaration of what she'll accomplish. I decided to do the same. So, here goes nothing...

This weekend, I will:

1. Make the pincushion for the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild swap.
2. Stuff and finish the Christmas ornaments from the Scandinavian Stitches book.
3. Attach binding to my strip quilt.
4. Podcast!

While I'd like to add more, this seems doable given all the craziness going on in our schedule, which includes Olivia's dance recital on Sunday.

I still need to figure out what pincushion pattern to use for the swap. Here is a little inspiration I pulled tonight.

1. a "little bit funky" pincushions, 2. {Happy} Pincushions, 3. Scrappy Pincushion Swap received from Tasha!!!, 4. Pincushion - Yellow Aqua, 5. Pincushion Caddies from 'Seams to Me', 6. owl on a palette., 7. SPS 3 top view, 8. "Quilting Process" pincushion front for Scrappy Pincushion Swap, 9. Polkadot Hedgehogs

What are your weekend goals?


  1. Hey, thanks for including my pincushion! I hope you find your inspiration and have fun sewing.

  2. Congratulations on the 30 weeks. you're almost there. Great goals!

  3. With a plan you will know what to get back to when life interferes.....

    Happy Quilting & crafting... Nonnie

  4. In January, I decided to start a weekly list and stick to it. Maybe I should follow your lead and actually start making one and following it. People who do that always seem to get so much done.
    I love seeing your beautiful daughter's picture on the side bar. My baby is now 22. I definitely miss those days.

  5. @Amy - You're welcome! :-)

    @Thea - Hit 31 weeks yesterday. Thanks for the encouragement!

    @Nonnie - I repeated your quote to myself all week. Thanks for the inspiration!

    @KatieQ - Time flies with kids, doesn't it? I can't believe Liv is 4 already. Before I know it, she'll be 22... Thanks for your comment!
