Want vs. Need

Well, Fall is almost here.  My husband's favorite season is Summer so he is starting to get depressed. My favorite season is Fall so I am just revving up!!!

Noodlebug started preschool yesterday. He did really well. He'll be in a Montessori preschool for three full days a week.  I think it will be really good for him and I hope he will like it.

There is so much I would like to be working on right now.

I NEED to:

1.  Prepare for my first Sunday school class this Sunday.  I am teaching the 0-2 class. It is really hard to come up with an age-appropriate craft for this group. We are doing Noah's ark this week and I cut out a bunch of photos of animals. My idea is to have the parents/kids glue one of the photos onto 3-4 popsicle sticks laid in a row. We will then cut the sticks apart with an X-acto knife to make a puzzle. You can also do this by just temporarily taping the sticks together and coloring a picture on them. I figure it will be an easy craft the families can also do at home.

2. Finish my Anda dress. All I have left is the hem. I don't know why I am dragging my feet on this one.

3. Sew at least four toddler holiday aprons and some of Little Bit Funky's ornaments for my church bazaar next month.

4. Start my Christmas sewn gifts.  I'm really trying for homemade gifts this year.  I am making hooded towels for my friends with children. And maybe some pillowcases.   Dana's tutorial looks so easy and fun.  They might make good items for the church bazaar too.  Maybe I"ll do some gathered clutches for my girlfriends!

5. Start my Fall inspiration journal for Artsy Mama's Halloween blog group.

I WANT to:

1. Sew some chalkboard-cloth placements for Noodlebug.

2. Start Noodlebug's Halloween costume.

3. Make a Sis Boom Dana Top for myself.

4. Make some handmade clothes for Noodlebug from Figgy's and Oliver + S patterns.

5. Take a quilting class at my local quilt shop.

6. Stay home with Noodlebug and curl up on the couch surrounded by books and movies.

7. Take a nap.
