In order to stay on top of the many projects ahead, I list them and check them off as I go--especially when there are so many projects due within a short period of time. If I didn't know any better, I would believe I was smack dab in the middle of the holidays again. The only difference is that when I look outside I see that the grass is now green and when I'm in my sewing room the sun comes through a great deal longer. Thank goodness for natural light; it does wonders for these eyes!
So just off the top of my head, as of today, my sewing/quilting list looks like this:
- Make gift for grandson's teacher - due next week.
- Teach applique to Maria (my sewing student) for a graduation gift she's giving to a friend
- due May 23
- Guide sewing students on their projects for our booth at the Sprint Campus - due June 19
- My prep for booth set-up--Project NiniQuilts to be at Sprint Campus - due June 19.
That is, make one display plus 12 each of the following summer themed items for sale:
13 coin purses
13 picnic mats with cloth napkins
13 sun glass cases
13 water bottle holders
13 headbands - help sewing students
13 quilted cuffs - help sewing students
13 beer or soda can cozies
garments worn by sewing students
1 or 2 quilts for display
1 bunting with company name & logo
- Prepare order forms, business cards, and fliers with sewing classes offered
- Plan, design and make quilt for hubby for Father's Day - due June 16
- Make 3 pillows for daughter's sofa & modify sheers for bedroom window - no due date
I believe I'll be staying out of trouble at least through mid-June--don't you? What do you do to stay on track when you have a lot going on? Do you use a calendar, smart-phone, bulletin board, or make post-its along the way?
