Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #82

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.

This week was another of daily (up to 12) power outages, constant rain and grey, gloomy skies. It really cut in to my sewing time and a couple of days my time was just 15 minutes.

Im watching the weather forecast and road closures with the crazy winter flooding and rock/mud slides which have trapped over 275 people in their cars, and caused severe flooding to shut down a sewage treatment plant in Merritt forcing the whole town to be evacuated. From the photos and news, I can tell there will be a lot of homes lost. It’ll be another need to make quilts for these poor souls. At least there have been no reported loss of lives so far.

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

4. Finish the hand sewing the binding on the other quilt. Done!

5. Finish the second pattern test by hand stitching the binding. Done

6. Finish my project and post for theNo Ring November Mug Rug Blog Hop. Done and post is written ready to publish.

7. Keep working on Samantha’s newest project: the goodies for the Christmas Hampers. 27 items ready to go in the donation bin.

8. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿😳🐿 Success! No new distractions this week.

Stash Report:

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 Roseanne. My poor Province is being tested hard this year, wildfires, mudslides, water and sewage plant failures, highway closures, flooding and oh yeah, Covid. Life is interesting and challenging here right now. We are fortunate that so far only one person has died and now the army has been called in to help with Search and Rescue and the flooding in Sumas which is our largest source of farm goods at this time of year. 😢

  2. Well, some progress is better than no progress!
    The weather has certainly been frightful! This is quite a time for us BC’ers … hopefully things will improve as the water levels go down … but you are correct, there’s going to be a LOT of people without homes … I, too, will be going through my quilts and making some donation quilts as well!!!
    Stay safe! 🙂

    1. Hi Gail. It has been challenging. We can only be glad the loss of life wasn’t worse but I heard this evening there are still 3 missing people. When you hear details of collection points, please let me know. You please stay safe safe. You are closer to the area with Pumping stations at risk then I am. All we have yo worry about here is the power outages so far.
