to do lists

I am a big believer of to do lists. Write it down and CROSS IT OFF especially during this time of year.
April 29- the big wedding- William and Kate
(To do- buy hat and fancy tea cups)
Next weekend - Easter
Next Weekend - Mother's Day
Next Weekend- QUILT MARKET

(the above are not listed in order of the length of the lists)

I have saved this post from Maria Kalman of the New York Times titled CAN DO.
It is a little story about Benjamin Franklin.
Maria writes, He believed in doing good everyday.
He made charts and had daily goals.
The picture below is his daily schedule.
(5:00 am to 1:00 am)

More from Maria's post:
He saw a dirty street and created a sanitation dept.
He saw a house on fire and created a fire dept.
He saw sick people and founded a hospital.
Read all of maria's post here.

I will keep this post short and get back to work on my mother's day gift, oops I mean Quilt Market.
The moral to Maria's blog post and mine also is time is relative, especially when you consider what you do with your time and what Ben Franklin did with his.
Get started
Make your to do list.

Go out there and create something great!

See you in Salt Lake with all your greatness.

One quick side bar- Don't ever write down all your UFO's (unfinished quilt projects) on a piece of paper  titled TO DO: and post it by your sewing machine.

Your husband may come by and add in Bright Blue Marker
