Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #77

I’ll be linking up with To-Do Tuesday which is now hosted by Texas Quilt Gal! I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else is working on or have finished.

Last week’s list:

1. Keep progressing my scrappy leader – ender project. Some Progress

2. Play with the pile of orphan blocks to see if I can make some progress including them in projects. No Progress

3. Plan and get started on my projects for the next 3 blog hops; the final 3 I’m participating in this year! I’ve started on all 3!

4. Continue to enjoy hand stitching my EPP Project(s). Some more hexies finished!

5. Since September included Jelly Roll Day, I really need to find a project to use up the bin of strips I’ve been hoarding saving for the perfect project. If you have a suggestion for a pattern please leave me a comment. Thanks for your suggestions. I have narrowed my choices down but not quite decided yet.

6. Start on prepping another box of tshirts which I received in the mail, for a memory quilt. At this rate, Shawn’s quilt will need to be king sized and double sided/reversible. 🤔 Some progress

7. Start getting things organized for my next trip to the studio. Ready to go!

8. Try to avoid those busy little squirrels that are running around my sewing table. 🐿🐿🐿

This week’s goals:

1. Keep progressing my scrappy leader – ender project.

2. Play with the pile of orphan blocks to see if I can make some progress including them in projects.

3. Keep working on my projects for the next 3 blog hops.

4. Continue to enjoy hand stitching my EPP Project(s).

5. Finish deciding on a pattern to use to clean out some of the strips in my scrap bins.

6. Continue prepping the second box of tshirts which I received in the mail, for a memory quilt. At this rate, Shawn’s quilt will need to be king sized and double sided/reversible or even 2 quilts!

So many black tshirts! I’m beginning to think I’ll never get to the bottom of the box 😳

7. Decide on the date for my next trip to the studio. My friend needs me there for her surgery Oct. 12th. My birthday (65) is the 15th. My son, daughter and their families really want us to go to Alberta to celebrate. With DH and I having underlying health issues it’s wise not to go even though we are vaccinated. Then my son suggested they would come to us. With our tiny apartment that could be interesting. 😉

8. Try to avoid those busy little squirrels that are running around my sewing table with so many wonderful ideas. 🐿🐿🐿

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 – 254/276
  • This 1 week period– 7/7
  • Year To Date – 261/283

Stash Report:

  • Fabric previous balance: 15 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 1.5 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash: 15 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

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. Hi Carol! I love that you have some studio time in your very near future. And a big birthday coming up as well. Good luck with your list this week – that is a LOT of black t-shirts. ~smile~ Roseanne
