Weekly To-Do and Goals

My Weekly Goals – To Do Tuesday #63

Chris at Chris Knits is now hosting the weekly To-Do linky party and it’s always fun to go see what everyone has done and are planning To-Do.

Last week’s list:

1. Assemble my scrappy batik blocks to a flimsy. Rows are finished. Just need to press and assemble the rows.

2. Keep working on a leader/ender project with my 2 1/2” scrappy squares. Some progress on an ongoing project. 😉

3. Work on RSC blocks; purple this month. Did not quite get these finished. 😢

4. Finish writing my pattern for the Seaside Adventure Row Along. Pattern is written. Just need to do test blocks again. 😉

5. Hopefully get away to finish some quilts on my longarm 😉 Arrived at the studio Saturday evening. Temperature was 40 degrees Celsius at 8:00 pm. 😅

6. Be more diligent at avoiding squirrels. 🐿🐿

This week’s goals:

1. Finish assembling my scrappy batik blocks to a flimsy.

2. Keep working on a leader/ender project with my 2 1/2” scrappy squares.

5. Play with the longarm and finish a UFO or two. 😉

6. Keep avoiding those squirrels. 😉🐿🐿

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 – 166/178
  • This 2 week period– 7/7
  • Year To Date – 173/185

To see how our blogging friends are doing check out Kate’s blog: Life in Pieces

Stash Report:

  • Fabric previous balance: 65 yards
  • Fabric Used: 2 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash: 63 Yards

* my goal is to lessen my stash by 100 yards. 😅

* 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.

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 have things waiting in line, but no idling in your quilt room! You are making really good progress. When you look out your window, do you see little quilty squirrels with their little faces and paws pressed against the window?? Haha! Let the squirrels in!! 😀

  2. So I am curious if this is a ferry you take regularly? Good luck with your projects, we’re only reaching 100 today (38 c) – feeling really cool. We’re in our apartment in Massachusetts (totally AC) but return to Maine on Monday (Peaks Island via Ferry) and it is supposed to be cooler….we have 2 in room ACs but it really isn’t pleasant when it is this hot!

    1. I get to take the ferry when time and DH’s health allow for me to go to my long arm studio. If I’m lucky it’s once a month for 3-5 days. At this moment it’s 37 c and we have no air. 😉 It’s another day where I’m melting. 😅 I’d love to travel to your part of the world; Peaks Island. It looks wonderful.


    1. Isn’t the water beautiful Nancy. It’s one of the things I love most about BC. Each lake has its own particular colour. Just loaded a quilt on the frame. Time for some long arm fun! 😉


  3. Stay cool!!! Makes me glad I’m not at the farm this week – 114 yesterday and there are only 2 window AC units – kitchen and bedroom!! Love having central air here where it was only 100 yesterday! You are doing great at keeping track of and working on your goals!!

    1. Hi Susan. It hit 50 Celsius at 7:30 in the shade outside while it was 99 Fahrenheit in the kitchen. Needless to say we are hiding out in the basement with no air conditioning but it is 10-15 degrees cooler down here with the longarm. I’m playing when my feet and ankles aren’t too swollen 😉


  4. Hi Carol! What a pretty ferry crossing wait! Gosh, I hope this heat breaks for you soon. That is just NUTS!! And the wild fires – I would love to send some of the rain we’ve been having every.single.day. {{Hugs}} Great job on your list – keep those squirrel at bay, please. HAHA! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. It’s almost 9:00 and it’s only 38 C on the deck but 102 F in the kitchen. Supposed to break tonight with clouds and electrical storms. The town of Lytton was evacuated tonight. It’s on fire. I’d love to get some of your rain 😅

  5. You’ve made really good progress this week and did well at working in your 15 minutes. Hopefully this week is much cooler.

    1. Thank you Kate. It hasn’t been much cooler. We’ve set record breaking temperatures and so far one town has burnt 🥵, but I’ve been playing with fabric and machines every day so some progress has been made.
