To Do Tuesday #124 & My Weekly Recap

My week went well and I managed to get safely home from the studio with just a bit of weather to contend with. Since I’ve been home we have had snowy days and rainy days. It’s another weird weather winter.

Last goals:

1. Keep working on my hand quilting, EPP projects and leader/ender projects. I have a finish (actually more than 1, but I can only share one now)! 😉

Lonestar Printed Panel quilt, 42” x 42”, hand quilted, binding machine stitched to the Front and hand stitched to the back. Finished Jan. 13, 2023

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

3. Finish my second Heading North quilt, designed by Sandra of MMM Quilts. No progress.

4. Finish my project for Shades of Blue being hosted by Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks. Just need to write my post! 😉

5. Start on my project for I’m Kinda Sweet on You Blog Hop once I decide what to do. Decision made and sewing has begun! 😉

6. Keep working on my Dresden blocks and Double Wedding Ring quilt in between my other projects. I found the background fabric I was looking for so I’m making progress. 😉

7. Work on the bindings that need to be stitched. Almost everything is finished!

8. Start planning a new project for Little Green Apples Blog Hop hosted by Carol from Just Let Me Quilt. I have a plan!

9. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me any more this week. 🐿💕🐿 Samantha was able to distract me this week when I started playing with scraps and the RSC colour; blues! 😉

This week’s goals:

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

2. When I get back to the studio make quilting my Roll of the Dice quilt the priority and get the binding put on. Should be able to make a trip at the end of the month. 😃

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

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

5. Finish my projects for I’m Kinda Sweet on You Blog Hop hosted by Joan from MooseStash Quilting.

6. Keep working on my Dresden blocks and Double Wedding Ring quilt in between my other projects. 😉

7. Work on the last binding that needs to be hand stitched.

8. Start planning a new project for Little Green Apples Blog Hop hosted by Carol from Just Let Me Quilt.

9. Keep working on my RSC Challenge blocks.

I have a plan for these fun little 5” blocks.

10. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me at all this week. 🐿💕🐿

Another ambitious list in a week where I have meetings scheduled every day except Friday, but several of my projects are long term ones. Thursday and Saturday I will be hosting our quilting days at the Guild. We are up to our eyeballs planning and preparing for our Annual Fundraiser in April so a good portion of my time will be tied up with that bit of fun. 😅

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, and have my week set as Sunday to.

  • January 14/14
  • this week 7/7
  • Previous Total 7/7
  • Total: 14/14
  • Percentage = 100 %

To see how our blogging friends are doing check out Kate’s blog: Life in Pieces

Stash Report

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

  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Purchased this week: 0 yards
  • Fabric Previous Balance: 100 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 94 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 reasonable to keep working from stash. I have reduced my stash these past few years and really only purchase fabric if I need it for a particular project. 😉

* 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 2023 Challenge again this year.

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. Your Lone Star is amazing. I love the feathers in the border breaking up the rows of straight stitching. Your stitching is just perfect.

    1. Hi Kathleen. The only handwork I’ve done before was making simple patchwork (squares) quilt tops and then sandwiching and tieing them with my Grandmother starting at age 12. Never did embroidery or crossstitch or anything before. I think I’ve been bit by the stitching bug! 😉Hope your week is going well. I’m looking forward to seeing your next finishes 🤗

  3. Sheesh, Carol! Your to-do list makes my eye twitch just reading it. You are amazing! You’ve made good progress on your list. I’ll be thinking of you towards the end of the month, heading to the studio. I would like to plan another longarm session but afraid the weather will not be amiable to that idea. Good luck this week! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne. The list looks long but it’s a reminder to keep moving these projects along. I don’t normally have 6-10 projects on the go at the same time, but it’s just worked out this way. Heading to the studio depends on how DH is doing. Again, thank you and have a wonderful week 🤗
