To Do

My Sunday "to do" list looked like this:
1) Sleep late
2) Practice free  motion quilting
3) Get DD1 to the airport
4) Send DD2 on driving practice with DH
5) Quilt more while I have the house to myself.

The real list went like this:
1) Wake at the usual time.
2) Try to calm DD1 who's anxiety about the trip was huge.
3) Help DD1 kill time when she realized her flight was 2 hrs later than she thought by cleaning the room DH refers to as "The Fire Hazzard".
4) Do 4 loads of laundry and the dishes. Might as well clean the rest of the house while I'm at it.
5) Get DD1 to the airport & DD2 on drive with DH

6) Have friend stop by to use my rotary cutter/ruler to slice 9-patch blocks.
7) Help her to finish piecing the baby quilt.
8) Sew donated pieces of batting together to make a free batting.
9) Drive to over-priced grocery store near house to buy roasted chicken for dinner.
10) Brainstorming phone call with colleague.
11) Add some straight line stitching to some of my practice blocks.
12) Worry about why my internet was down (last time it was b/c DD had illegally downloaded music).
13) Sew hexies together while watching football.

A very productive Sunday...though not at all what I'd planned.

*chuckle* Things don't always work out the way we planned, do they? But you had a lovely sewing afternoon shared with a friend - and that's one of the great parts of quilting!

Well, living with a family often throws up roadblocks. My daughter decided to pay a few days visit so her daughter can practice English with grandma.Well, daughter is sensitive to the wireless so it has to be turned off. She is sensitive to the smell of soap so no wash being done and windows closed when neighbor's wash is out drying. Sigh. There will be a lot of catching up in a very short time while the dog gets a trip around the block! Quilting withdrawl taking place bigtime!
