100 Day Hustle
I always seem to be walking a delicate line between trying to get more things done while at the same time slowing down to enjoy my life. Sound familiar to any of you? Last night I took some time out to let the girls run around on the front lawn as the sun was going down. They had a blast playing tag and picking the last of the daisies, and I was happy just to sit and watch them. It reminded me how important it is to take those quiet moments when they come.
As I mentioned yesterday, Kelsey is having a wonderful event called the 100 Day Hustle in which we all make lists of what we need to get done before 2012 waves goodbye. While this was a daunting task for me to face at first, I'm so glad that I worked on this list today. Having my mind cluttered with all the things I needed to do was becoming overwhelming, and it didn't look quite as bad as I was afraid it would once I saw everything down on paper. So here we go...
1. Christmas potholder for my grandmother
2. Finish Vintage Holiday quilt (backing, quilting, binding)
3. EPP block for Travellin' Pic-Stitch Blog Hop
4. Modernista Swap Project
5. Modern She Made Swap Project
6. Play quilt for my nieces
7. Diaper bag for my sister
8. Camera bag for my brother-in-law
WOULD LIKE TO DO
1. New purse for me
2. Pillows for the family room
3. New advent calendar
4. Tula Pink Sew Along project
5. Finish new quilt for Bunny's bed
I have no doubt that there are other things that will make their way onto both of these lists, but this is a place to start. Hopefully if I can get my projects organized, I'll be able to get my time organized a little more efficiently too...which means more happy moments like last night.
And that's definitely a good thing.
Linking up with the 100 Day Hustle.
