Drowning in Fabric

Forever cleaning, organizing and creating

February review

on February 28, 2014

Wow… March kind of snuck up on me. I am feeling good about February, so let’s see how I did –

February goals

1. finish pixel top – YES!

2. finish chevron top – YES!

3. work on economy blocks. (make some!) – I have a bunch of squares cut for it, but haven’t started assembling yet. Mainly (excuse lol) because I’ve had black thread in my machine half the month.

4. Make a back for my bento – Ok so. I pulled out the fabrics and considered it and decided 1. I didn’t have enough fabric and 2. The fabrics were very orange. I got a killer deal on some green fabric in a clearance sale – though not as much as I ordered. I have another perfect fabric picked out  but as I am shopping for 4 backs right now plus another quilt and been doing other spending I am having trouble pulling triggers. Felling money guilty. I just have to suck it up.  Because I HAVE to finish this!! 

5. baby’s bathroom – We bought a bunch of stuff for it and I put the medicine cabinet together and that’s where things stand. We had a disappointing discussion about stud placement and wiring and I don’t know what I am doing. Maybe this weekend we will get everything installed and then I will clean and organize the bathroom real well. I also realized that the cabinet I got doesn’t have a shelf inside it which is annoying. I’ll have to find something I can use – otherwise it is wasted vertical space!

6. set up a schoolroom and schedule – Considering my kid isn’t quite 3, we’ve been doing ok with this. I have been following along some homeschool curricula … loosely. We are doing calendar and mostly I am letting him do the activities he wants to and not pushing the stuff he doesn’t get or doesn’t have the patience for. He is really smart, but also really focused on the things he wants to do, and not so much on the things that he doesn’t or are new. We really only manage it 2-3 days a week and, like, this week we didn’t at all because we had other stuff going on.

7. general clean/declutter – Isn’t this the never ending goal? I got sick and things went to hell. I’ve been working this week to get things back to a point where it doesn’t make me want to run screaming from the house. It’s getting there. But tomorrow starts March. Not ready for that.

8. read – Oh this is so awful. I haven’t read anything. I started a book, but then it was due back so I had to return it. I’ve dabbled in some parenting books but not really read any through. I am reading a book now, but only manage a few pages a night (and the type is SO SMALL! Am I just getting old?). So. Yeah.

    Well all in all not bad. I too got sick and it really messed with my goal list. Hopefully March will be much better for both of us.
