To-Do #52+48 Weekly Recap Update

This is our 100th (!!) edition of our weekly to-do list.  We share this post on Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts and at Becca’s What I Made Monday website on Mondays, and Christine’s Stitch All the Things website on Tuesdays.  Check out what our friends are sharing!

To-Do for the week of March 4th through 10th:

  1. Borders for the Dumbo baby quilt – still not on
  2. Bee Hive blocks for Mary – √ done


To-Do #1

Did you notice that March has FIVE whole weekends?!  How cool is that.  To me, that means there is five weekends to spend with the littles, and five weekends to get our March OMG project complete.  That is also a fancy lead-in to me not doing a thing with Dumbo.  I did hold a baby girl for a few hours Friday night and Sunday morning, and bored her to tears sleep.  No crying was involved and no small babies were harmed, but no sewing ensued.

To-Do #2

It is thrilling to say that I got a start on Mary’s block for our IG Honey Bee Hive group.  This is my first attempt at paper piecing in eons.  Finding the fabric in the right colors and then getting them sized appropriately were the hardest parts.  Here is one quarter of the first block.  The rough size is 6.5″ and when joined with three other quarters, the whole block will end up at 12″ finished.  Mary will mix up all the pieces she receives, so we have been asked to leave the papers on the back.

March OMG

Our March goal with Patty at Elm Street Quilts is to complete a Dumbo baby quilt for a coworker.  At some point I am going to start working on this!


To-Do for the week of March 11th through March 17th

  1. Get those borders on Dumbo – seriously!
  2. Beats the heck out of me – we both don’t feel like sewing lately

    What a cutie! Holding over sewing any day. Holding will go away some time, sewing will always be there! and a FPP tip? sometimes I cut out each shape and retrace it with a 1/4′ seam to be able to get the right size piece in the right direction…sometimes.

    Sweet baby, and holding a baby always beats out sewing! I’ll be on grandchild care this weekend with my hubby. And sewing seems to come in spurts anyway. Enjoy those littles while they are young!

  3. I’m dying to hold a baby lately. I need more babies in my life (tangentially–not all the time)! Also, I can totally sympathize with number two on your to-do list. Sometimes a break is just what we need. Thanks for linking up to What I Made Monday!

    Holding the baby vs. Sewing = no contest! She is absolutely adorable. I really love those fabrics you picked for the block. Bold, and they work so beautifully together!

  5. Rochelle Summers says:

    Really? 100 weeks of posting goals? Fantastic!! Lovely little girl…why do they sleep with their arms stretched out? Love the colors in your paper pieced block. Have a great week.

    What could be more important than holding that little one? All the quilting in the world will wait!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    Love the block colors! But little sleeping beauty, well, nothing can beat the sweetness of a baby in slumberland…sigh…

  8. I also love that we have five weekends this month. Your blocks look great! Can’t wait to see them in person. Take care, Mary.

    Hello Roseanne, Babies sleeping are so precious and beautiful! How wonderful that you got to be the one holding her and being her special Auntie while she needed you close. I had not noticed that we get an extra weekend, that is great! Extra sewing time is always a plus in everyone’s thoughts or I would think so, at least. LOL. Have a great time working on any of your quilting projects all week long! Just have a great time doing it! Sending loads of smiles and hugs!!

  10. Adorable baby!!! Five weekends sounds hopefully–we all might make headway on our projects and the snow might finally melt.

  11. Such a sweet pic of the little napping beauty! Love those blocks with all that bright color!
