This Week’s Goals

Here is my list of what is happening in my quilting life; time spent, goals, stash and PHD Report. I was MIA last week since I was completely tied up with travelling to my friend’s studio and getting the longarm set up and working. I felt confident travelling to my quilty partner’s home since she and her husband had quarantined themselves for almost 3 weeks waiting for me to get there. I was able to go with absolutely no contact with people other than my friend and her husband. While I was there I was also able to do the top to bottom cleaning and get a few meals in the freezer. My friend suffered a heart attack last year so I try to help however I can even during these trying times.

My Weekly Goals – To Do Tuesday #43

A group of quilty friends post their linkup posts at Roseanne and Sue’s linky party, setting their goals and progress lists. It’s always fun to see how they are doing and what is taking a priority in their lives. Linking with Home Sewn By Us

Last week’s list:

My list for last week was postponed because I picked up my longarm and frame and travelled to set it up at my quilty friend’s studio.

This week’s goals:

1. Keep working on the quilt for my friend in hospital with Covid. His condition has not worsened nor has it improved.

2. Prepare more backings for quilts that need to be finished on the longarm.

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

4. Finalize a pattern for Grace’s quilt.

5. Catch up with my friends doing the the SAHRR.

6. Check out the Project Quilting 12.3 post and get something finished.

7. 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 with 3 days of DH having medical treatments, tests and appointments.

Stitching Time


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.

  2. So nice that you can finally get your longarm set up, and how wonderful that you could make them some freezer meals while you were there. I’m sure they will appreciate that so much. You have some good goals for the week!
