January To-do List Recap

I can't believe that it's February.

I figured I'll state my monthly big to-do's to ensure some accountability - and for some of these, lets just be honest, I need all the motivation I can get.

However, January was a doozy. Being sick for 3 weeks didn't help. This didn't help either:

Yep - our basement flooded. Neighbour's pipe burst. They live in a different state. Great fun. Not that I was personally involved in dealing with it...I was sick in bed from a stomach bug and taking care of my kid who had some kind of flu. Poor hubby.

The January List:

1. Bake muffins for neighbour as a TQ gesture  Revised - invited them over for breakfast instead. It was nice to have interaction with other people

Those ham & apple puff pastry quiche bites were the best thing I've ever made - the recipe was from the Stocked Kitchen cookbook I got for Christmas

2. Work on Baine's quilt  Did not start. Why? Because my study/impromptu sewing room looked like this:

Why? Because it was better that, than have my guest room look like this:

3. Add floor trim to base of LR stairs Did not even attempt

4. Flip guest room mattress Completed

5. Thank You note and picture to A.Cindy - Isabel's godmother  Nope

6. Organize linen closet  Revised - redid the guest room closet instead. Which should probably get me bonus points since that closet had it way worse than the linen. And do I love that beautiful dark gray...Can't believe that it was a mistint.

7. Have 1 good outfit per work week  Eh

8. Replace LR window trim  Nope

9. Return recalled IKEA roman shades 28.57% completed. 2 down, 5 more to go

10. Finish nursery's curtains  A big fat YES!

I gotta say, the only thing that caught my interest in your to-do list is the picture of breakfast. Now, do they come in delivery form? :P

I gotta ask: are curtains hard to sew? I'm thinking about sewing up a valance for my living room, but for some reason, I just have it in my head that curtains must be difficult to do.

Amanda - Nope, they are probably the easiest thing for me -- all straight stitches! =D If you add pleats, you can either use a pleating tape (which will make your life much easier) or you can "hard-sew" it like I did (and it'd be a smart idea to actually measure out how much excess fabric you'll need - which i didn't)
