Sunday Update and ToDo Tuesday #118

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; the hand quilting is done on my little quilt; just needs binding. 😁

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. 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. 😉

5. Deal with meetings and appointments as they arise.

6. Finish my projects and write posts for my next blog hops.

7. 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: 28.75 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 12 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 16.75 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

PHD in 2022

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

It’s beginning to look as if my UFO List is going to be expanding with so many incomplete projects this year, but at least I’m closer to my PHD even if I don’t get it done. The way this year has been I’m content with the progress I have and am making.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post. Your comments make my day and I do reply to each one. 😉 Carol

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 Kathleen. Those weeks of meetings and appointments can be so trying and tiring, but hopefully you can have some fun while you are off island. Thank you 🤗I’m really enjoying the handwork 😉
