Getting Organized?

In a few days I will celebrate yet another trip around the sun, and a goal for most of those trips has been to try to get organized. This year will be no exception. And I have a new tool that is going to finally be the magic that will help me accomplish it - the Quilter's Planner. Magic. Truly!

We shall see about that as the year unfolds. I have used planners for a few years now, with some degree of success. Isn't it pretty? The floral cover is a fabric called The Good Life by Bonnie and Camille - and yes, I have a bit of it up in the stash. Pretty stuff. Those pieces are half-yard cuts, so I have 2.5 yards.

For each month, I can have a full month view with spots to record information and commitments. The following few pages are weekly calendars that allow more detailed planning. There are places to track habits - I like this feature. I have put some inspirational quotes in to keep me centered. As far as beginnings go, I am ahead of things this year. I hope I can keep it up.

This year it is my intention to be very deliberate about recording my tasks, my appointments, sewing goals, fitness goals and whatever other important things I need to remember. I will try to zero back to this planner periodically through the year to report how I am getting along with it. For the price I paid, I better! It was not inexpensive, for sure.

I made my second batch of 9-patches made yesterday and plan to start constructing the top today. Further details and pics to come soon.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

  1. I hope the Planner does help you achieve your goals and intentions Jayne. I have a business planner and a personal planner on the go this year - not sure how I'm going to maintain either or both! I just long to stay focused for a change instead of running off in all directions, forgetting my core goals as I go!
