Quilt or Clean

My options this weekend are leaning toward doing something productive. But productive doesn’t always have to be a chore.

The house needs cleaned. I mean like vacuumed, mopped, scrubbed up, down and sideways and litter boxes emptied and filled with new litter kind of cleaning. The outside area needs a little sprucing up as well, including the “pond” in our front yard and all the grass growing in the rocks, ivy growing again on the light pole, and general weeding. I should probably also clean out the chicken coop. Ugh.

However, I also want to quilt and sew. I want to finish up the wonky 9-patch blocks for That 70s Quilt and maybe even start cutting out the feature squares from the Alexander Henry In the Kitchen line for it, or [gasp] start a new project. Of course, I also need to get working on my husband’s vest for his clown outfit.

So perhaps, just perhaps, what I really need to do is make another list and order it in importance while adding some fun stuff in between. Then again, it might be more beneficial to simply get all the chores done so I can spend the rest of the time relaxing. Oh, who am I kidding? We’ll probably spend the weekend watching Netflix and accomplishing nothing.

  1. Do the house/yard work when the sun is up, do the quilt after dinner is made, then fall asleep watching Netflix! You can do all three in the same day!
