12 Days of Christmas – Day 5

Hi Quilting Friends,

Welcome to Day 5 of the “12 Days of Christmas” series! I’m glad that you’ve stopped by for a visit today, even during this busiest time of the year.

I’m a list maker. I have gift lists, menu lists, grocery lists, project lists, and a list of my lists. (OK. So I might be a bit obsessive with the list thing, but it works for me.) I may even write things on the list that I’ve already done, just for the pleasure of crossing something off of the list.

With all of the lists that I have going at this time of the year, I decided that it would be fun to make a pretty cover for my notebook of lists. And, of course, I decorated the front cover with our “Naughty or Nice List” elf! (So appropriate!) I don’t have a pattern to share for this project, since the sizes are dependent upon the size of your own notebook. The applique block is 7″ x 7″, so I used a standard spiral notebook.

I’ve added some pockets on the inside flaps, perfect for keeping a pencil or small ruler handy, and a secure zippered pocket on the back cover for coupons and stuff that you don’t want to lose when you’re out and about on your secret missions.

  1. I am a hopelessly addicted list maker. I make lists for so many things. How many? I’m not sure I could count them all. Well for starters, there’s my gift list, my project list, my embroidery list, a list for each project that requires several steps to complete, a list for things I need to get to complete projects, and on and on…

  2. I am a list maker also. I love the feeling when I cross something off as done. But I rarely complete everything on my list. I just make a new one and add the items yet to do. The notebook cover is a nice idea for a notebook.

  3. Your elf is so cute. Thank you for the chance to win. I am definitely a list maker. I make list to take to the grocery store. I make a list of the items I need to cut. I make a list of how many I have cut. I make a list of the things I want to make, etc, etc. I have list all over my sewing room, but I would forget a lot of things if I didn’t make a list. The older I get, the harder it is to keep up. LOL

  4. I am not a list maker, but I should be!! I’ve made lists at times in my life and seem to accomplish a LOT more when I do it. Without the list I tend to forget 80% of what I’m supposed to be doing so a lot of things don’t get done. Maybe that should be my 1st New Year’s resolution – make lists for everything!!!! Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂
