Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #80

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

I was teaching again one day at the Guild. It’s so nice to be able to be at the Guild and see happy, masked faces busy with their fabric and machines.

Last To-Do list:

1. Continue with my scrappy leader/ender project. Some progress.

2. Keep sewing my pieces for my EPP projects. Some Progress.

3. Finish sewing one more block to use the orphan blocks in 2 quilt tops. Both flimsies are finished.

4. Get the interfacing on the tshirt pieces and start making the blocks for the memory quilt. No progress.

5. Sew the binding on the two quilts and finish hand stitching the binding down. Binding is on and hand stitching has begun.

6. Finish the second pattern test. Flimsy is done. Just need to sandwich and quilt it. 😄

This week’s goals:

7. Finish 3 more Blog hop projects. 1st is done and posted and the next 2 are in progress.

8. Do better at avoiding the squirrels for at least a couple of weeks. 🐿 I’m trying but my inner squirrel, Samantha, is trying hard to tempt me with so many new projects. 🤔🐿

Here is my updated list of goals for this week:

1. Continue with my scrappy leader/ender project.

2. Keep sewing my pieces for my EPP projects.

3. Get the interfacing on the tshirt pieces and start making the blocks for the memory quilt.

4. Finish hand stitching the bindings on these two quilts.

5. Finish the second pattern test by sandwiching, quilting and binding it.

6. Finish 2 more Blog hop projects.

7. Do better at avoiding the squirrels for at least a couple of weeks. 🐿

Now isn’t that a bit more reasonable list this week? 😉

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 – 271/304
  • This 2 week period– 7/7
  • Year To Date – 278/311

Stash Report:

  • Fabric previous balance: 12 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash: 12 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. Looking good!! Hopefully the squirrels are all busy gathering their winter supply and will leave you alone to quilt and bind and ….
    Isn’t it fun to be with other quilters – even if they have masks on?
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

  2. Haha Samantha is not going to be silent! I love the peek at the pretty greens in the 16-patches.
    Glad you are enjoying your guild activities. It would be difficult to be at a fun meeting and have to wear a mask – so hard to breathe! We are only required to wear them at doctors’ offices here.
    Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday! 🙂

    1. Hi Linda. We seem to be adjusting to having to wear masks indoors. It’s a small price to pay to allow us to be together. You’re lucky to only have to wear them at your doctors offices. Here 90% of the doctors appointments are still by phone or video conferencing. 😷
