Today was a sleepy day - I woke up, took the dog to the dog park, and came home to crash on the sofa. I slept through about 3 episodes of Law & Order, waking from time to time, only to fall back asleep again. Husband woke me up about noon to go to the grocery store with him... I shopped, came home, ate lunch and dozed off again... Why couldn't I keep my eyes open all day?
Finally, about 4pm, I woke up enough to do a little sewing. I sewed down about half the appliques on my Pumpkin Patch Lane block of the month. Then I came back to the computer and ran Dungeons and Dragons for some friends for a couple of hours. Then it was dinner, and back to the sewing machine to finish that block.

This is a little preview of what a part of this quilt will look like - The original is all made from homespuns, flannels and wool... SO very much, NOT my personal aesthetic.
I've really discovered the true benefits of 'to-do' lists in the past few months - I get much more done, and I'm more motivated to finish tasks when I have a list and endeavor to follow it. While I didn't finish everything quilty on my list yesterday, I did finish 2 tasks, which I wouldn't have even started without my list! I feel semi-accomplished at least.
