I think I’ve mentioned before, I love writing. But I don’t do it often enough. I’ll go months without writing more than what I put on this blog and a little on Facebook. And then I’ll have a vivid dream. So vivid that I recall quite a few details when I wake. Some of the dreams have been repeats, with more details becoming clearer each time.
A few days ago, I told my hubby and my mom about the dream I had the previous night. I have this particular dream at least once a year, sometimes more. The reply from both of them was “Write it!”.
So, I am. Mom and hubby both seem happy that I’m writing again. Hubby’s goal is that it is published, turned into a movie, then we become millionaires. My goal is to just get it finished and edited, then I’ll think future lol. This isn’t my first novel, I have a couple others that I’ve written that are sitting there, staring at me, waiting to be edited. I hate editing by the way.
I’m also still working on some embroidery, but I can’t show the current project as it’s a gift for someone. The first April CQJP block has been posted on the CQJP2014 site, so I need to still get the post together for that. And then put together some more bare blocks to work with for more CQJP blocks.
Lets see, why don’t I make a WIP/To-Do list!
*Make up CQJP bare blocks. Embroider them as needed for each month.
*Finish 7 more embroidered blocks for ‘secret project’.
*Make curtains for office windows.
*Paint my office.
*Continue working on story.
*Get my Turning Twenty Again quilts quilted then the binding done.
*Figure out a different project for HSTs (instead of curtains).
*Sew together the 4 large blocks from my personal pattern and get it bordered. Put together a written pattern.
*Create/design some wall-hangings for my office.
*Create/design other artwork for my office.
I think that is enough for now. As you can see, I have plans for my office. Right now it’s a gray color which, when it was my hubby’s computer room, was perfect for him. But I’m not a fan of gray and I want to make it more cheerful. I have a pretty color picked out that’ll let me keep the current trim color (which is more silver), I just need to go and get the paint and start painting. I may have some time off work in the summer though so that may be my time to paint.
Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on what’s going on. I hope that you are all enjoying the spring weather that finally arrived (for those of you who live in areas that had a long cold winter).
Do you have a WIP/To-Do list? How many items are on yours? Do you add more each month? How often do you finish what’s on the list? I think I add a lot more than I finish!
