Oops, I'm doing it again.

It may be just me, but I have found that I am much more productive when I spend less time on the internet. ;-)

I got quite a bit done this weekend, *most* of it towards my New Year's to-do list. And I got things done in spite of my feline assistants.

Here, Louis helps with piecing and laying out my first bluebonnet and plaids New Wave row:


And here Pippa does her part to pin-baste a quilt:


I also cut out all of the strips that I had pieced for the hexagon quilt. (I got some useful suggestions from the awesome Cauchy about backgrounds.) And I did some cogitating on the quarter-circle, mustard and blue quilt; I want the rows and columns to be odd numbers (to inhibit the the urge to pair up the blocks) so I may already have enough blocks to go ahead with them.

But then...

My last two trips to Joann's have resulted in this stack of brown fabrics:


I had no plans for a brown quilt; no one I know wants or needs a brown quilt (including me!); but these fabrics seem to want to be a quilt! But that isn't on The List!

Also, The Modern Quilt Guild has announced their latest challenge/contest. There has been a monochromatic quilt I have been thinking about for years, but it has never made it onto any to-do list. I am kind of thinking that now might the time to dust off this project.

But, but, but The List!!!!!

So we are early into the second week of the New Year, and already my "List" seems to be going the way of so many lists of the past.
(And I am enjoying every minute of it!)

You have all year to work on the list though! I say make the monocromatic quilt! I am thinking of one as well despite it not being one of the WIP's I am supposed to be working on too!
