Do you clean spring and fall?
Right now, I need to do so, as the house is full of people who make messes, me included!
Inspired by having a general home binder, I made myself a cleaning binder recently. Among other useful things, it holds a cleaning checklist for each room, tucked in a page protector which makes them dry erase. My nerd heart just does backflips over a checklist that’s dry erase! =}
During the cleanup, I tend to assess my artwork, rearrange for the season, and take stock of the home and its needs. While homemaking, and especially cleaning, can be a daunting task, I find these checklists helpful to a somewhat ambiguous notion of a clean home. The list keeps me on track, as well as reminding me of things which need cleaning only occasionally and thus are easy to forget!
I hope this post explains a little of why there are very few quilting pictures lately. While I do get some sewing time in during the fall, it is often secret sewing, and I just can’t show ya! I’ll take a few pictures when I finish each gift, so I can post once the gifts are given. I hope you’re having a good fall, and that you’re gearing up for this lovely holiday season!
Happy Cleaning and Secret Sewing! =}
