I keep a daily journal of my quilting endeavors on my sewing table. I jot down whatever I am working on the day. I used to record how much time I actually spent on each task (as that seems to be a burning question with so many non quilters) but now I just record the start and finish of a quilt so that when people ask me (that number one question), "how long did it take to make", I can tell them exactly. Actually I do it for myself as I like to look back over the years and get a kick out of what I wrote about a particular quilt. I have been doing this since 1978! I have used the AQS engagement calendars since it came out (1986 I think).
Anyway.... I still work full time, so my summer routine is to get up and work for an hour or so before work (I am a morning person) and then in the evenings when it's not too hot. (I get a lot more done in the winter!) For the last few weeks I have been hand appliquing the leaves and ovals on the leaves for this quilt. I have two baby quilts and a wedding quilt to make too, but for now I am enjoying the hand applique.
Summer is my least favorite season, but for some people in my family.... well, I guess this says it all!
