Make-A-List Monday - Good Times!

Hi, all!

Monday again, and the start of another busy week!  This one's especially busy, because Lilli will be starting kindergarten.  A whole different schedule this week, then we start a new "normal" as Emmy and I will be alone together again!  And in between all the babysitting this week, I've got plenty to do.  But first, let's see how I did on last week's list...

1.  Make a ministry quilt for a little boy.
My friend Piper is working on the kit I put together using Spiderman material.

2.  Applique the stars to the blue field of the flag quilt.
I didn't get to this one....  :-(

3.  Create a plan of what to make for the craft show.
Done!  And I feel a lot better about it now - I've got plenty of time to make everything I want to take, I think!

4.  Make at least five items for the show.
Done, big time!  I made ten crayon roll-ups, seven key fobs,  six lanyards, and a quilt top last week!

5.  Quilt at least five quilts for Rogersville.
Done!  Including the three I took to church last Sunday, I've quilted nine quilts in eight days. Here's a few of them...

6.  Finish the guest room.
I did some work on this but when my niece's plans changed, I lost interest...

7.  Take care of any other ministry needs that arise.
Done!  We had a request for a 3-year old girl just diagnosed with cancer, and this quilt will work perfectly!

And here's what my week looks like this week - - - Monday (today) I had both girls for the day.  We had a ball, and I managed to quilt a Rogersville quilt, finish three crayon roll-ups, and make a quilt back, too.  Tomorrow I'll be taking Lilli to a movie while her little sister has some doctors' appointments - our last fling before school starts!  Wednesday I'll be babysitting Emmy for a couple of hours in the morning while my daughter and son-in-law go to the beginning of the first day of kindergarten with Lilli.  Thursday is mine, and then Friday, I have Emmy for at least part of the day.  In between all of that, here's what I'd like to get done....

1.  Keep quilting one quilt a day for Rogersville.

2.  Applique the stars to the flag field.

3.  Make nine mug rugs for the craft show.

4.  Quilt a baby quilt for the craft show.

5.  Quilt a ministry quilt for a woman just diagnosed with a brain tumor.

6.  Keep up with any other ministry needs that come up.

I think that's enough for this week - and maybe I can get to all of this before next Monday!  Oh and if anyone's interested, the diet is going well - I've lost four pounds since last Monday and I find that I'm making better food choices on the non-fasting days!  Woohoo!!    And those fasting days aren't so bad - not much worse than a day when I get too busy to eat.  Let's hope it continues....

So now the question is - - - what are you working on this week?




  1. Wow! You are making me tired. I made a list myself today but it isn't that impressive. Currently I am working on finishing my Fun and Done. I don't want another WIP. So, hopefully, it will be done this week.

  2. Holy cow you are a busy woman! Good luck getting everything ready for the show. I'm sure it will go marvelously! :)

  3. I love all your little goodies for your sale. And I think you have a doable list.

  4. I have been doing the 5:2 since the middle of May and have lost 17lbs so far. You're right, the fasting gets easier as you go on and now the fasting is just a way of life for me. I found this website really good for tasty recipes... Type in 5:2 diet and it will bring up all sorts of yummy things. The smokey tomato soup is really yum.

    I have also moved to eating more raw foods and that is really helping with keeping me full. Good luck!
