ToDo Tuesday #117

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 goals:

It was another week of meetings and appointments but I did manage to carve out some time to play with fabric.

1. Keep working on my hand quilting, EPP projects and leader/ender projects. Some progress.

2. When I get back to the studio, if time allows, I need to quilt my version of A Roll of the Dice which is on the frame. No studio time yet. 😢

3. Finish drafting the commission quilt pattern. Some progress. 😁

4. Finish the pattern draft for my friend. Finished and delivered. 😁

5. Finish my second Heading North quilt, designed by Sandra of MMM Quilts. Still working on my borders and blocks.

6. Attend to more medical and other appointments with my DH and myself this week. Done. Just need to do follow up appointments this week.

7. Start planning projects and pulling fabric for my next blog hop projects.

8. Finish some secret sewing projects for Christmas. Completed and I’ll share soon. 😉

9. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me any more this week. 🐿💕🐿

This week’s goals:

1. Keep working on my hand quilting, EPP projects and leader/ender projects.

2. When I get back to the studio, if time allows, I need to quilt my version of A Roll of the Dice which is on the frame.

3. Keep working on the commission quilt.

4. Finish my second Heading North quilt, designed by Sandra of MMM Quilts.

Just need to put on the borders once I make the blocks I need to modify Sandra’s pattern since I have a specific sized quilt with these colours required for Christmas. 😉

6. Deal with meetings and appointments as they arise.

7. Finish my next blog hop projects and get my posts written.

8. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me any more this week. 🐿💕🐿

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 am allowing myself the guiltless days when real life was too busy, emotional or just trying. It’s been a year so far and it doesn’t seem as if life will allow me to get back to my peaceful days of fondling fabric, at least not quite yet.

Stash Report

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

  • Fabric previous balance: 33.75 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 5 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 28.75 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

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. How did you figure out how much fabric you have in your stash? I’d like to do that but I’m very lazy. I read about the Shades of Blue challenge yesterday and you reminded me to email Carla to see if she has any space left. Hope you have good luck with your list! Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!

    1. Hi Linda. I have no real idea how much really is in the stash so I just set a goal to use 100 yards every year from stash. Hopefully Carla still has a spot for you on Shades of Blue. 😉

  2. Oh, those blue fabrics are pretty! Do you have a few blocks mixed up in your Heading North, or did you plan to leave that white square open on one end? Either way, I can’t wait to see it. Poor Samantha must be sitting in a corner, pouting. Heehee.

    1. Hi Wendy. Yes I used the wrong diagram to assemble the throw sized Heading North. I didn’t realize it until I took the photos. It will stay that way until it gets to the top of the To Be Quilted pile or I have the time and energy to get Jack out. Samantha is not sitting in the corner! She’s sitting on my desk and is now busy singing a Christmas Carol and showing me pretty pictures which make me want to just do everything 😉

  3. You’ve got some fun projects to plan for and get going on. December is always so busy and it’s hard to find stitching time, at least it is for me. Hopefully things slow down a bit and you have some time to fold fabric and other do other stitchy things.

    1. Thank you Kate. It is a busy time of year but stitching y time does keep me calm and centred. Fondling fabric is a necessity of life. Good luck this week with your stitching time. 😉
