To Do Tuesday #1

My list for February’s OMG was a short one; only 3 things on it. I’ve been making some progress and even dealing with a squirrel , or two!

1. Sort out DH’s tshirts and start on the design for a memory quilt. To get to the bins with his shirts in I pretty much had to empty the storage room. I decided that while I was at it, I might as well spring clean in there 🐿 and do another purge of my supplies and DH’s clothes. 4 tote bins are ready for my Guild’s annual fundraiser and a few boxes of DH’s clothes that no longer fit are ready to go to the Thrift Store. I did sort out a stack of favourite shirts so that project is started.

2. My second goal was to make some progress on my leader/ender project.

From these scrappy four patches to:
Ready to add sashing. So many memories in these little scrappy squares!

3. Quilt and bind my Star Crossed Plaid quilt for Clarke – I did do some work on this. It’s now 3/4 finished being quilted. I’m planning on a finish this week.

🐿 Another squirrel caught me when I had an idea for Project Quilting 11.3. A little pouch for a good friend who just needed a lift.

🐿 I did start another quilt. The pattern is Vortex by Wilmington and can be read about in this post. The blocks are finished (all 42) and border fabrics are cut. Just need to finalize the layout and put it all together!

🐿 My knitted socks have progressed from this:

to this:

Ready to start the heel flap!

The new To Do List for the week:

1. Finish quilting and bind Star Crossed Plaid.

2. Keep working on the scrappy Leader/Ender Project.

3. Finalize layout for my Vortex Quilt blocks and get the flimsy put together.

4. Work on the design for the memory quilt.

5. Keep knitting those socks.

What are you working on this week? Have you planned any projects or set aside time for anything specific?

Stash report:

  • Fabric in last week: 2 yards
  • Fabric out last week: 0
  • Balance in stash: 172.65

* all fabric used this week was from the scrap bins; doesn’t count as stash.

Only 8 days with goal met so far this month. Surgery interferes again with fun time!

Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Published by Carol Andrews

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Oh, I just love your socks!!! That yarn is marvelous!!! I’m working on this week’s challenge and I’ve spent quite a bit of time with Jack!! That’s what happens when you don’t have a pattern AND you eyeball the size!! You are making good progress!!

  2. Hi Carol! You had a great week. I love the colors in the yarn you are using for the socks. We are just starting on a t-shirt quilt. It sure is a process – just sorting the t-shirts to see what’s usable. I am looking forward to seeing your Star Crossed Plaid quilt all finished. I’ve snuggled under mine a few times and have enjoyed it. Thank you so much for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. You have a lot of things going on. I love the little pouch you made. I’ve had to clean out a storage area trying to find my quilting fabrics before; that can turn into quite a task.

    1. Thank you Marti. It has been fun trying to keep busy while waiting for my second eye surgery next week! I’m one of those people who have several projects on the go at all times. It’s nice to know my storage room is cleared out, sorted and organized for now.


  4. Good job on the spring cleaning. While I am pretty much still immobile with a broken toe my list of things to do is growing. At the top of the list is my storage room but I doubt the motivation will be there once I am more active. I love the yarn. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.

    1. Hi Lucy. Thank you for your comment. The first thing I can suggest is to see if there is a Quilt Guild near your home. Most Guilds have classes and lessons for beginner quilters. I run those classes every fall and winter at my Guild. If there is no Guild check with your local fabric store. If not follow my blog! I’m writing patterns now for a beginner quilt. It is a great pastime and can be very addicting!
