Last week’s list:

1. Spend some more time cleaning out the scrap bins. Still have 3 baggies to go.

2. Send photos and do write ups for pattern tests. Done

3. Keep working on Sarah’s pattern test. Flimsy is done

4. Have fun with quilting and binding the pattern test flimsy. Not done. Still waiting for my longarm.

5. Finish the little Christmas table topper. Done.

Quilted and bound with my first flanged binding. ☺️

6. Keep knitting my shawl. Some progress.

7. Finish sewing my project for the Hearts on Fire Blog Hop. Done and will be posted on Tuesday, Jan. 19th. 😉

This week’s goals:

My list for this week has been postponed in order to make a quilt for a very good friend who was just hospitalized with Covid.

1. Finish clearing out the scrap bin.

2. Finish Sarah’s pattern test.

3. If my longarm is delivered/set up quilt and bind the last pattern test flimsy I did.

4. Make the blocks I designed to finish Delaney’s quilt.

5. Finalize a pattern for Grace’s quilt.

6. Deal with any squirrels or requests for pattern testing that come up.

7. Look for ideas to use the 32 patches I made from scrappy 2 1/2” squares.

8. Keep up with the SAHRR.

9. Check out the Project Quilting 12.2 post to see if I have a project that will work.

10. Start planning my project for:

I know I am not going to complete this list, but it’s good to have alternative projects to work on depending on what life throws my way.

Stitchin’ Time

I’m trying for at least 15 minutes a day, but also want to at least spend 15 minutes tidying up and dealing with scraps.

  • Previous time – January – 9/10
  • This week – January 11 – 17– 7
  • Year To Date – 16/17

Stash Report:

I had to go to my LQS this week to see how my technician is doing and see if we could set up delivery of my longarm. Delivery will be determined once he knows when his employee will be back at work. Possibly/probably this week. While I was there I picked up 2 more yards of a background fabric I’m going to be short of for my SAHRR project.

  • Fabric previous balance: 127 yards
  • Fabric Used this week 0 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week: 2 yards
  • Balance in stash: 129

* any fabric used from the scrap bins, was gifted or a prize; doesn’t count as stash

Gail at Quilting Gail created and hosts the PHD in 2021 to keep us finishing those UFOS.

Thank you for reading my post. Do stop over to the blogs I’ve linked with to see what everyone else is working on; how their goals are proceeding and what they are planning next. 😄 Carol

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. You’ve done well, I think. We rarely manage to finish all that’s on our list, but there are also additions. Best of luck this week, especially on your friend’s quilt.

  2. WOW!!! You are keeping busy!!!
    Sometimes, there are priorities that happen in life and ‘seem’ to de-rail us, but they become priorities – so there’s actual no de-railment! I hope your friend’s quilt is put together easily!
    And a UFO finish!!! Woohoo!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂
