It's June 20, and the onslaught begins in two hours. I don't know if it is the relative maturity of my children (I know, oxymoron at its finest) or a calendar of well spaced plans in front of us or all the gin and tonics I have been enjoying at cocktail hour, but this year I'm ready. Summer will rock. I say it, and therefore it is so.
It is always good to be as prepared as possible for any eventuality, though, and to that end I whipped this sign up this morning after the big girls had left the building. Greta noticed it on her way out the door and I actually got a "Mom, that was a great idea!" out of her. We'll see if it helps. Thank you, Pinterest.
My list of EPQD summer projects is also looking well spaced and manageable. Talk to me in a month and see if I still feel the same. While there is never enough time to accomplish everything I want to, staying realistic is key and I feel like I might actually enter September this year feeling like I am not hopelessly behind.
Basically, here's my list:
1. Secret plans I refuse to divulge because I will likely be rejected soundly and then I will just be embarassed.
2. Get Quilty Pleasures blog post done for Goose Poop. My reveal day is 7/11. May the poop be with you.
3. Smack these HST blocks into quilt/new pattern for my new lecture, debuting in May 2015, about my Scrap Squad experiences and consequent inspirations.
4. Finish quilting this sucker.
|Also, a lint brush would be a good idea.|
5. Send this Modern Instabee block to its new owner. Remember to make time for July and August blocks too.
|I'm not adding "lint roll design wall" to the list. We all know I won't do it anyway.|
6. Scrap Squad project #4 will be due in September or maybe late August. It's a doozy, but an attractive doozy, and I plan to do some out of the box things to it. My main concern is that I need to remember to work on it as it hasn't been started and therefore is not lying in pieces all over my sewing room reminding/taunting me every time I walk in of its very existence.
7. If time permits, get top done for this, even though I'm all annoyed that the idea I had for this quilt just showed up in a new book. Great minds, not enough ways to set circle blocks, I guess. So it's back to the design drawing board as far as what I am going to do with these blocks.
|Hi pretty and coordinating with my blocks toes.|
7. Various marketing sorts of things to stay on top of or I'll be dead in the water in September. Or more accurately, January.
Now taking the over/unders on whether I will do it all without scaring my children with my crazy.
Again, talk to me in September, but attitude is everything.
