What To Do Next

It's time to reveal my "list".
Kelly at the Charming Chatter blog hosts the Charming Guys & Girls Quilt Club.
This starts a new "year" for the group and each month, well every two months,  has a theme.
For July and August the theme is Self-Care. So I will add a couple of things for "me" on the list besides sewing type projects.

I suppose shopping is not what she means by self-care... but don't you love this picnic tin?
It was in Coast Magazine! You can purchase it through a company out of England...
so, with shipping and all... well, let's just say that it will be staying on my list this time!

This is the start of the Fig Tree Club project. The group will meet on August 7th at Cottage Quilts... so I will need to have this sample done by then.

I have to (get to) make a tote bag for my swap partner for Dandelion Quilts' Summer Tote Swap!
I am anxious to get this done and in the mail. It's first on my list... along with the FT project!!

I have two months of these BOM's to make now... it just started and already I'm behind!
How does that happen?

I really need to make myself a new wallet... that is going on the list too!

I am also in a pincushion swap... and have a great partner that I get to send a special pincushion to!
(I have no idea where I got this picture from... but I'm looking at the pink machine and then over to my little white featherweight... the wheels are turning!

Of course, there is one of these to make too!

Now for the self-care list...
1. Start packing lunches for work. Not everyday... but a few times a week.
2. Put recipes IN recipe box. I got a new recipe box for Christmas from the hubs... and, well, you know!

I saw the idea on the Farm Chicks blog. And yes, I found that exact box...
but mine is red. (Jill got this color).
3. I also thought that I should start reading again. Exercise my mind a bit. There were a couple of great blog posts, one on Sister's Choice and the other at Pleasant Home about summer reading. I made a hugs list... that will take me well into next summer but to start with I have Wicked still waiting for me. So that is first.
I was thinking about The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews. Has anybody read that one?

12 friends stopped by to chat:

I read The Fixer Upper earlier this summer. It's a nice,light summer read.

What great goals you have planned - can't wait to see your prety projects! I so heart that recipe box - and the PINK sewing machine! And, I really want that picnic basket too - you're a bad influence Sinta (LOL)!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Have fun with your goals! I love to read too and am looking fwd to winter when things slow down and I can enjoy a few good books. ;-)

Carol said...

Good goals Sinta. Where did you get that cute recipe box? I love it.

Sherri said...

Great list...and that has to be the cutest recipe box ever!!!

Kim said...

Great goals. Can't wait to see your finished projects.

Linda in Calif. said...

Hi girlfriend in Oakhurst. (Remember me, I camped there and love your town.)Your goals sound like fun. I like that tote bag. Maybe I should think about making myself one.

Nanette Merrill said...

THis is so cute, love the post.

Cindy said...

Okay, so now I'm tired because I see your list of goals that you'll probably easily complete and I'm still working on mine...LOL

an encourager said...

Okay, I can't even manage to do my once-a-month Schnibbles, but your life sounds so much fun, that I want to join every swap and bom club that there is!!!

Polly said...

Your goals are perfect... I'm behind already, too. Got to post my goals like yesterday!! ACK!! Polly

Love that recipe box! I have a little cedar one that the hinges are separating from the box. I won it waaay back when I was a freshman in high school as an award for outstanding home ec student. The local home extension group awarded it.

That's funny!
