To Do List update

So here was my list of things in progress as of February:

Current projects include:
  • finishing these $#$@*% evaluations
  • finishing Mom's quilt from Christmas
  • starting a chair quilt for Pav
  • finding some tea towels to embroider
  • baking February birthday cupcakes for school - chocolate cherry with ganache frosting and vanilla cherry filled with cream cheese frosting
  • cooking a fabulous dinner with R for the boys - menu TBD and be fabulously complicated
  • finishing the quilt for S's new baby, Tommy
How am I doing?
  • One evaluation to go
  • Um. No progress on quilt unless getting the batting out of the bag to fold it up and leave it on the table counts. I think I am dreading maneuvering a large quilt under the machine to do the quilting. The back is pieced, however.
  • Pav's quilt - ordered the pattern, looking for fabric very casually
  • Bought one tea towel. Found pattern, started to trace it. Must finish this for a Craftster cookbook swap, making this next up. Still need to find nice towels, though.
  • Cupcakes made and eaten. The Chocolate Cherry ones from Nigella Lawson - wow! Also made carrot cake for March birthdays.
  • Not one, but TWO fabulous dinners cooked and eaten. See below.
  • Quilt top finished, ready for layering and quilting.
New projects:
  • Bought a few pieces of material at Vogue from the remnant room for summer dresses. Need to find pattern(s) and actually make something.
  • Finish Cookbook swap by putting together created cookbook and embroidering tea towel.
  • Figure out my freaking golf swing and actually hit the ball. %$&#*@!
