There are two kinds of people…the organized kind and the unorganized kind. Unfortunately, try as I might, I fall into the later category. I’m trying to get ready for my quilt guild’s retreat this weekend and it’s bordering on ridiculous! I do okay up until the last minute and then I start chucking everything in the car for fear I might forget something, so I wind up with a huge bunch of stuff I really don’t need which in turn makes it even harder to focus on one project at a time!
Today, I cut strips and squares for a quilt I want to work on using a Hoffman Bali Pop called “Green Tea”, got them in the order I want, and placed them in a zip-loc bag along with the instruction book for the pattern and sealed it up…now can someone tell me why I’m so nervous I’ve forgotten something? I hope to get a picture up on Sunday of the finished quilt, but don’t hold your breath!
The next thing I gathered was a few pieces of fabric to make a small purse by Lazy Girl Designs. I picked two fabrics I adore and a friend is supplying me with a zipper (since I bought a 7″ zipper instead of the 12″ one I needed!). That’s all set to go in another zip-loc.
This is where I start to make myself crazy…do I have enough to keep me busy while I’m at the retreat? Should I throw in another project? Do I have another project to throw in?
So how do you organize your projects for retreats? Do you make lists? Leave a suggestion in the comment section please!
Back to more packing…
