I love lists, so of course I made lists for things on my list.
There is a quilt list. It looks something like this:
January: Finish the quilt I'm making myself, because there is only one step left to be done.
February: Make a quilt appropriate for whatever gender child my sister pops out in January.
March: Finish the commissioned quilt a blogging acquaintance asked me about somewhere near the beginning of 2011.
April: Make the thank you quilt I designed for j's first grade teacher.
May: Make a thank you quilt for j's second grade teacher. (Don't finish it at 1 a.m. on the last day of school like his kindergarten teacher's quilt. Also, see previous line and don't wait until he is in third grade to start it.)
That is where the quilt list stops. For now.
There is also a closet transformation list. It goes something like this:
- Take photos of closet before project starts
- Empty closet
- Take Photo
- Wash closet walls and shelves
- Paint closet walls and shelves
- Take Photo
- Add hooks to closet walls
- Install LED push lights on closet walls
- Measure shelves and shop for baskets to fit
- Take photo
- Sort through hats, scarves, mittens etc, and fill basket for j and e
- Hang snow pants and jackets on j and e's respective walls
- Close door and admire lack of winter clutter by the front door
- Open door and take photos of the finished project
- Blog the transformation
Pretty thorough, don't you think?
Do you make lists? Do you make them like me? With a million tiny tasks so you can feel a sense of accomplishment over and over again?
