Wall of shame

So here are the sampler blocks and I am pondering how to connect them.
I can do white or an assortment of whites and off whites or I can do
one color family or I can do a riotous cacophony of interspersed
blocks. Any thoughts?

butterscotch twist

Today I was browsing Etsy and happened to espy some wonderful wool batts named after angels  and they were calling my name like the sirens of spinning.
I peeled myself away and plugged wax in my ears and spun a couple of previously stashed batts, all the while, lashed to the mast.
Well really there was no mast and no wax but I did spin some. Bailey is home from school and tries to look ferocious when I point my camera at her.

Storm at Sea, preparation with Inklingo

Busy morning here at the cat ranch. The girls were very busy guarding the yard. Every noise brought them to full alert.
Cutting shapes for my Colors of the Sea quilt. I am very happy with the way I can cut many shapes layering just one printed piece on top of several layers. I do not get the benefit of stitching lines on each shape this way but I can manage a quarter inch seam allowance:) This will be a king sized quilt for us.

To do list

I am a list maker. I find that if I make a list that I actually accomplish things and that if I do not accomplish the "list thing", well then, those things were just not that important.
Do you make lists? My lists are mainly a mix of things I want to do and things I must do. The reason I make a list may be because I am trying to remember all of these things or more likely I want to give the activity some emphasis and hold myself accountable.
Sometimes my lists are wishful thinking and sometimes I make them pretty-which usually circumvents their effectivity because I spend more time making the list and admiring it than I do on the list items themselves. Even writing about lists makes me want to break into prose. or sometimes profanity. will you share your list?
I am thinking there may be a prize for the one that I love the most.
No rules, anything goes. Send a link or a picture for me to post and I will come up with a prize.
BTW this is purely subjective and selfish. Just saying.
