How's That Fab 4 Working Out?



You know....I have made a lot of progress on my afghan. But, no matter how many times I check my Fab 4 post from the other day I can't seem to find it on there. Hmmm.....

Do You FAB 4?

This is a concept that I learned about on a yahoogroup called stashbuster. The idea is to list 4 items that you want to work on at any given time. You can finish all 4 and add 4 more or as you finish one add a new one. The options are limitless. What is limited is the number of projects you have to worry or think about at once.

When I find my mind or my hands jumping around to different things and no real focus I quickly jot down my fab 4. This helps me get done what needs getting done. You know I use this in my hobbies maybe I should use it in other areas of my life.

Here is my list:

- finish testing mystery quilt
- sew and fringe fleece blankets
- bind the 2 BQ quilts (we'll count that as two)

Can You Chew All That You Bite Off?

I go to a local church that has a sew-in twice a month. The ladies there are mostly local guild members but some are invited guests of those ladies. I think this is the fourth month I have gone and I really enjoy the companionship.

I hoped to accomplish a lot. I took several projects with me. I wanted to:

- trim dd's quilt so that I can hand tack the binding on. Didn't do that.
- make the binding for my Aunt's quilt - DONE
- cut out a mystery quilt I am testing - DONE
- cut out and sew pieces for some underpants I am customizing for ostomy bags - cutting done
- cut and sew some fleece for baby blankets - got the cutting done

I had hoped to get a little more sewing done on some of these things but for 3 hours I think I accomplished a great deal!

I have this coming week off. Let's see what I can get done. My list includes sewing, cooking, decluttering and organizing tasks.
