I get stuff done, just not in the right order....

See, I have a quilt top that needs to be basted and quilted.
And I have a quilt that's good to go except for handsewing the binding.
That was my plan for today, as well as purchasing supplies for the Sailor Mouth Swap.

Well, I did the shopping, but now I have to wait for it to get here.

I ended up mostly just catching up today (and yesterday).

I'm suffering from major brain deadness today.

I packed up stuff to mail, then headed out to run errands and realized at errand #1 that I forgot the packages on the dining room table.  Then I forgot The Pirate's conditioner at the drug store.

So, I made another trip.  Postable stuff posted.  Conditioner purchased.

Anywho, this is what I got done:

My August Nubee blocks:

Nubees, Aug, Hive #2

I think I'm reusing this block for my 3x6 blocks.  Oh, I got some solids to do those today, too.

I caught up on the Sew Intertwined QAL  (did that yesterday, really):

Sew Intertwined, outer blocks

I really love this block.  I am thinking there is a quilt in just these blocks out there in the future.

Caught up on the How Far Will You Go? QAL:

How Far, weeks 2 and 3

I'm apparently on a Hope Valley kick right now.

What I still have to do in the upcoming week:
*Prep my 3x6 blocks
*do this week's blocks for Sew Intertwined (on Fri.)
*do this week's blocks for How Far Will You Go?
*quilt and bind the quilt that was supposed to get done today.  (Also, there is a giveaway coming when it's done)
*Handsew the binding on the Across the Sea boy
*Do some handsewing on the Medallion
*Get the layout done for the Hexy MF (and get some more flowers assembled)

Here's the bummer.  I forgot where I was in the summer relative to where school starts.
I've got my class list.  I'm excited.  Good kids!  (Not that they aren't every year, at least where I teach.)  But, um, I've already started going in to get set up.  School officially starts (with kids) next week.  In the meantime, I have my birthday coming next weekend.  I'll be 38. Eep.

So, there are some things on my to do list for the summer that I have yet to start (in some cases) or finish (in others):
1.  Tank top.  Uh, I washed the fabric.
2.  Embellish skirt.  Uh,  I made the skirt.  I really need to finish this one as I need some clothes for school.
3.  Weekender bag.  I have the supplies, except for feet.  I'm not sure I'm ready to attack this one. It seems a bit scary.
4.  My Swoon mini.  I started hand quilting it.

If anyone figures out a way to get more done, let me know.  I'd like a time machine for my bday.
