My Weekly Recap & To Do Tuesday #133

Another week of so many trips to town for appointments, meetings and two Quilting Days at the Guild as well as some work on prepping for our Guild fundraiser at the end of April. The good news is sewing happened every day again, even if I can’t show off my projects yet! 😁

Last goals:

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

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. If all goes according to plan, I should be able to go to the studio in a couple of weeks for a few days of longarm therapy before we head out on vacation. 🤞🏻

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

4. Keep working on my Dresden blocks and Double Wedding Ring quilt in between my other projects. No progress on the Dresden blocks, but I have a plan decided on for the centres finally, but need my Accuquilt cutter and dies which are at the studio. 😁

5. Work on the last binding that needs to be hand stitched when I get back to the studio.

6. Finish my project for Little Green Apples Sew It- Show It Challenge hosted by Carol from Just Let Me Quilt. Get my blog post written for my March 20 date to post. Done and ready to be posted.

7. Keep working on my project for the next monthly Sew it – Show it Challenge, hosted by Joan from MooseStash Quilting. So much progress! 😁

8. Keep working on my RSC Challenge blocks.

9. Finish quilting my SAHRR and get the binding on before the March 13 Parade of Quilts. 😳 Finished, post written and linked up with the Parade of Quilts. 😃

10. Keep playing with the scraps from Monique so I can get those bags emptied and out of my sewing corner. 😁. Finished to flimsy stage unless I add one more border. 😃

11. Do not allow Sam or any of her squirrel friends to distract me any more this week. 🐿💕🐿 Didn’t happen. I almost missed the final Project Quilting challenge. 🤔

This week’s goals:

This week likely won’t be as productive. I have 3 days scheduled at my Guild doing prep work, sorting and pricing donations for our Annual Fundraiser, one day with 3 different meetings scheduled and a trip to town for DH’s doctors appointment. The good news is I should be able to get a trip in to the studio finally at the end of the week for a couple of days. 😳

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.

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

4. Keep working on my Dresden blocks centres. 😉

5. Work on the last binding that needs to be hand stitched when I get back to the studio.

6. Keep working on my project for the next monthly Sew it – Show it Challenge, hosted by Joan from MooseStash Quilting.

7. Put the last border on my scrappy quilt.

8. Keep working on my green RSC Challenge blocks.

9. Start planning a project for the May Sew It – Show It Challenge “Rose Colored Glasses” being hosted by Carol from Just Let Me Quilt. The challenge was just announced and the information can be found here.

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

Stash Report

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

  • Fabric Used: 1 yard
  • Fabric Purchased this week: 0 yards
  • Fabric Previous Balance: 79 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 78 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!

Had to copy this from Quilting Gail’s blog. I still haven’t succumbed but we are only two weeks away from a vacation trip and I know there are some great LQS along the way.😉

PHD in 2023

Quilting Gail is hosting her PHD in 2023 Challenge again this year. If I can get to the studio before we go on vacation I should finally have some more progress on my PHD. 😉

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. Linda the remnants of the kitty fabric has been hoarded but I think it works for this project. Yes you did see both words in this post so Longarm time, palm trees and fabric acquisition are on my horizon 😊

  1. Those weeks where I have so many other commitments pop up frustrate me, but the best cure for that is STILL getting lots done! Go you! (Btw, I’m doing plenty of fabric buying to make up for any you haven’t been doing!! Yikes! I think I need to unsubscribe from some lists!! LOL)

    1. Cheree you are so right! Being able to see tangible proof of progress makes it easier to just get things done so I can sew. I’m glad you have been replenishing the fabric in your stash you’ve been rapidly using up, but I’m thinking my fabric drought will be coming to an end when we go on a road trip leaving April 1! 😃

  2. Your last week was pretty busy, and this one sounds like it’s going to be the same 😉 Well done with your to-do list, and your projects. I’m still in love with the wedding rings ;))
    Thank you so much for sharing, and linking up.
