I love letters and words
One strategy I use to make progress in my quiltmaking is to break up the process into small tasks, and as much as possible, to schedule at least one small task each day. Sometimes things go well, and I can do more. Yesterday I debated with myself for much of the day as to whether or not I could still fit some screenprinting into my day, or whether that would be stretching myself too far. Then, while Caleb was still sleeping at 2:30pm, Phil offered to take Daniel with him to pick up the kids from school while he was out running other errands. Oh, yes, please! With a bonus hour to play with, I whipped out the screenprinting supplies and set myself up on the dining table. I'm always amazed at what can be achieved when I have an uninterrupted hour! I had just washed the last screen and cleared the table as Phil and the kids stampeded back into the house. Another completed task to cross off the list!
