ToDo Tuesday #119

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:

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. Keep working on the commission quilt. Done, delivered on time to be packed for the trip to Israel. I’m so embarrassed to say that I didn’t have time (read forgot 😳) to get a photo.

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. Done. Appointments are finished now until next year and only 2 more meetings this year. Yes, I am enjoying thinking that this year is almost over. 😓

6. Finish my next blog hop projects and get my posts written. You can read my post for the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange here.

7. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me any more this week. 🐿💕🐿 FAIL! Samantha decided I needed to attend a class at my Guild and give needle felting a try! 😉

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

4. Finish my project for Shades of Blue being hosted by Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks.

5. Start on my next Blog Hop Project once I decide what to do.

Hosted by Joan of Moosestash Quilting and there just might be an opening.😉

6. 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: 16 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 12.75 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.

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. Looks like you’ve done well on the goals and getting appointments out of the way is always a huge relief isn’t it? LOVE the little felted birds! I’ve never tried that!

    1. Kathleen knowing that you get to finish PT means you’ve made real progress. Hurray for you. The felting was fun and Sam just keeps tempting me with more fun project ideas 😃🐿️🤪🐿️

  2. CAROL! Needle felting?!!! Those sweet little guys are so darn cute. Each one is cuter than the next. Oh, I hear you about appointments. With so many people sick this year, and then trying to use up flexible spending monies before the end of the year, it’s difficult to get an appointment! I think you need to needle felt yourself a squirrel named Sam. {{Hugs}} a bunch. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. The needle felting sounds like fun!!! The critters are SO cute!!!
    You’ve done well on your list!! And 68% of sewing time is pretty darn good! Especially when you consider the year you’ve had with multiple trips to the OK and Alberta! Those definitely take away from sewing time!
    Happy Quilting and Felting! 🙂

  4. Great goals and reports on them. The squirrels do get in the way sometimes, but I’m glad you made the little felt animals – so cute. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Mondays, Judy
