Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #103

I’ll be linking up with To-Do Tuesday which is being hosted by Linda from Texas Quilt Gal and making sure I go see what everyone else is planning for the upcoming week.

Last To-Do list:

1. Keep working on my hand quilting and EPP projects. Made some progress.

2. Get my project for Here Comes The Sun Blog Hop finished. Done and posted 😄

3. Keep working on my pattern test since everything is cut now. No progress 😢

4. Finish binding my commission quilt. Done and delivered! 😄

5. Continue piecing the blocks for a new commission. Just need to add the borders, get it quilted and binding on, and make a matching pillowcase. 😄

6. Finish quilting a baby quilt once my longarm is finished being repaired. I picked up my longarm and am heading to the studio! 😄

7. Try to keep Samantha and her squirrel friends from side-tracking me. 😉🐿😉🐿🐿🐿. Didn’t happen! While at my Guild I just had to play with a loom and have started on a rag rug! Photos will be in a future post since I was so engrossed I forgot to take any. 😳

This week’s goals:

1. Keep working on my hand quilting and EPP projects.

2. Keep working on my pattern test since everything is cut now.

3. Finish the new commission and make the matching pillowcase.

4. Finish quilting my version of A Roll of the Dice.

5. Start on my next Blog Hop project.

6. Try to get some quilts on the frame in between helping my friends. K starts chemo this week.

7. Avoid squirrels at all cost.

Stitchin’ Time

Kate from Life in Pieces hosts a weekly linky party to help us keep to our goals of stitching every day.

I’m trying for at least 30 minutes a day this year, but also want to at least spend 30 minutes a week tidying up and dealing with scraps.

Starting with everything tidy and organized just might be the help I needed. 😉

  • January 31/31
  • February 28/28
  • March 26/31
  • April 6/30
  • May 13/31
  • June 19/25
  • this week 7/7
  • Previous Total 101/120
  • Total: 123/176
  • Percentage = 69.88 %

Stash Report:

I like to link with Donna @ QuiltPaintCreate to keep track of fabric in and out of my stash.

  • Fabric previous balance: 78 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 17 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 10 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 71 Yards

* my goal is to lessen my stash by 100 yards this year. I haven’t managed to actually figure out how much fabric I really have in my stash so it just seems to be reasonable to set a goal to continue working from my stash.

* any fabric used from the scrap bins, was gifted or a prize; doesn’t count as stash

Quilting Gail is hosting her PHD in 2022 Challenge again this year. 😄

I do enjoy sharing some of your time when you read my posts and reply to each comment. 😄 Carol

To-Do Tuesday @ Texas Quilt Gal


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.

  1. Talking about squirrels is dangerous – I’ve never used a loom and now I want to – eeek! I look forward to seeing your rag rug. LOVE the photo in your header with the the ferry!
    Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!

    1. Hi Linda. The best part of the loom; it’s the tabletop model. We also have a LeClerc floor model at the Guild but it was too big for my little rug. I love seeing the ferry sign. It means I’m either going to or coming from the studio. 😉

  2. Hi Carol! A rag rug?!!! I have some ideas I’d like to try someday . . . when I have time. I look forward to seeing this project! And the ferry shot is always intriguing to me – I want to hop on it and ride. Great job – you’ve got a LOT going on, as always. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
