I love lists. I make a lot of them. I love crossing things off my lists. I am one of those people who will add something to my list just to cross it off. Sometimes I cross several things off my list that I haven’t done yet so that I do those things next. No one in my family gets my ‘list thing.’

I want to concentrate on three quilts this week: The Sun, Moon and Stars, Pomegranate Jam and Love Entwined. Let’s see if posting a weekly quilty to-do list can keep me on track.
