Top priorities:
1) Finish stuff for Reading Rainbow Swap--will mail tomorrow--just need to press and tweak a couple of things! Mailed March 1.  Hope my partner likes it <swap anxiety!>
2) Finish suit skirt and either finish blazer or fix an old blazer, or risk looking like an idiot in court (looked like idiot anyway, I don't do well in heels)
3) Get material for sofa & loveseat while still on sale.

Lower priorities
4) Actually reupholster sofa & loveseat (possibly after move)
5) Start pruning/packing craft & sewing supplies.

I'm new to this thread, but I like the idea of having a list I'd see every day....especially since I have become a craftster addict in the past month or so.

This is my list that I'd like to have done by March 19~
Finish  Bubba's chair (pics to follow after it's done)
Strip the rest of the disgusting paisley wallpaper done  Grin
Actually sew the test slipcover for my sectional
Build a simple ottoman for the den

the list that I'd like to have done by April 1~
Reupholster the den furniture (couch and chair and a half)
Clear out a corner of the garage for my crafty needs
Sew the infinity dress (ordered fabric today)

All of my projects have officially been put on hold....for a good/bad reason.  I'm now building a cross fence/trellis in my back yard.  My elderly yet evil neighbors are harassing my children, so to keep my kiddos away from their side of the yard, we decided to cross fence.  We're going to put some bouganvillea on the new fence to block out their ugliness as well as gain some more privacy.

Hi - I'm new to this list -- but not to being much better at starting strong than ending (at all) -- I've got a project list a mile long.  I figured I'd just say hi and see if the message posts before baring my brain, my soul and my sewing room!!

these are the ones I remember - 30 items and that doesn't include things I have "kitted up" with patterns and materials or that are in my head.  And what I really want to be doing at this point in my life is more freeform stuff.  But I really do want to get through all (or most) of the above.  thanks for being there.

Wow, roselydottir, that's some list!

Actually, mine would be that big too if I only had the memory and the nerves to post all of my UFOs and must-do projects!!!

TO DO Beginning 02/01/07
    • Finish Unpacking! 02/01 PM!
    • Create Thank You Cards 02/02
    • Make nephew a Superman cape In mail along with sis' BDay card by 02-06
    • BDay card to momicita In mail by 02-12
    • Concert Tee Shirt Quilt I've been sitting on this for several months now. I'm ditching the hand embroidering of words, in leiu of an iron-on, then I just need to close the opening and tie. 02/28
    • PEZ cabinets finish making risers, then attach the backs. They can't go up since we moved to an apartment, but at least they'll be done! And easier to move. 02/28

    Ok, not everything was done "on time"! Heck, I just finished up the Concert Tee Shirt Quilt this morning. But the list is almost clear and I've done a few other projects that popped into mind during the month.

    Guess I should start a new list, right?[/list]
