Drowning in Fabric

Forever cleaning, organizing and creating

March goal review

on March 31, 2013


  1. Finish ribbon chevron top – border. Back? Nope and nope
  2. Work on I spy quilts for nephews. I cut the tumblers for one. Still haven’t gotten the swap back for the other.
  3. Plot and sew rainbow twister quilt. And start twisting, if I get that far Haven’t even touched it.
  4. Bento Box Strips are cut
  5. Finish and hang the fabric hoops for the kidlet’s room. GAH. In a pile in my sewing room. Not done.
  6. Finish and send 3×6 blocks. All but one finished. None sent yet.
  7. Finish cleaning and reorganizing sewing room Nope.
  8. Put my sewing table together – Want this done! YES!


OK. Here’s the thing with the cleaning. I did a TON of cleaning this month, but very little of it was the cleaning I put on this list. Instead, I basically did a deep spring cleaning on my downstairs. I had a long list of deep clean projects and did most of them. My sunroom windows still need to be done, my wood floors could use some attention, and I didn’t vacuum the furniture. Other than that, I did everything. Considering that’s more than I have done in all the time we have lived here, I think that is pretty good. Moving forward, I am going to try to focus on a room a week or month and “spring clean” the upstairs either in that focus period and/or do a marathon in the fall, like I did downstairs this month. I also used natural, non toxic cleaning products throughout.

  1. Finish office bookshelves Haven’t even thought about it.
  2. Work on garage on weekends with hubs NO
  3. Get the baby’s swingset installed! Want this done for spring Nooo. Hopefully next month.
  4. Closet Still no.
  5. Hang photos I hung most of them…. I think there are still three over there leaning against the wall to be put up. The hammer got swiped for putting together the table. And a few more that I need to get frames for before I can hang them.
  • Weight loss I am maintaining well. No loss. Though GS cookies and cadburries may have something to do with that. I am thinking about another smoothie fast after my birthday, then I will be staying with my mom for a month, which will be a primarily vegan diet. Hopefully I can knock a few more pounds off before summer.
  • I have a lot of dr appts to make. Oh My God, I didn’t! Not one! This is so bad….
  • Read read read! I’ve read a couple of books that I can think of right now…

  • Green focus on the kitchen again this month – there are still a couple things I need to tackle.
  • Reach out to a couple friends – must do
    I did. I emailed I think 6 friends:
  • One in town friend got right back to me, and we set up a date for next month.
  • One out of town friend emailed me right back, and I found out all kinds of things going on in her life I really should have been aware of.
  • One out of town friend emailed me back to tell me that she was going to respond when she had more time, but I haven’t really heard more from her.
  • Nothing from the rest… which of course makes me wonder why. Were they busy? Are they mad? Do they not care? Am I annoying or intruding on them… And so forth. It’s the anxiety I live with. But at least I tried, right? But then I am left with all the questions and the annoying limbo of what to do now. Do I keep pestering? Wait a while and try again? Leave it be? Oh well. I made the effort.
