To-Do Tuesday #16 & Monday Musing

Two of our friends host a weekly linky party. Brenda at Songbird Designs has a Monday linky party called Monday Musings. Our friend Carol at Quilt Schmidt hosts To-Do Tuesday with a linky party as well. We will share our weekly updates on both of their websites.

To-Do for last week:

  1. Bind the hexagon toppers
  2. Dye Easter eggs!
  3. Two limit list for a stress-free week

To-Do #1

Yippee! The Halloween toppers are all finished as I completed hand-sewing both bindings. We also finished the applique on the table runner for Andrea. One happy happenstance is that the leftover backing from the hexagon toppers fits exactly for Andrea’s table runner. Isn’t that nice when things just work out like that?!

I also started a little work on the next hexagon topper for a different season. Sue has two of these ready to go, just waiting on my applique magic. She also has two snowman toppers along with some penguin ones once we find the right background for them. I’ll be busy!

To-Do #2

The Easter egg dyeing went well. I worked with Dominic and we had some amazing red eggs that looked like burnt orange. Chase worked with his momma but he got bored with the waiting process. Auntie Sue and Addison rocked the pink and blue eggs, while Dada and Colt harvested yellow and green.

It was a great success and the day went by quickly. I think dyed eggs taste better than plain white ones. Does anyone else agree with me?

To-Do for the week ahead:

  1. Work on Chase’s dinosaur quilt binding
  2. Continue on with appliqueing the toppers
  3. Two for a low-stress limit!

  1. What a FUN time dyeing Easter eggs! Love it! The Halloween table runners are cute! Can’t wait to see that Dino quilt finish!

    Oh the memories this brings back of dyeing eggs with my cousins and siblings. I guess next year I will need to start that with Squish and Rowdy, although he will still be too young to dye eggs. I regret that I never did that much with the girls, they always hunted plastic eggs with candy and money in them. Good luck with your appliqué sewing!

    I always got bored too, and it’s now been a several years since we bothered to dye eggs so I couldn’t say on the taste. Methinks it’s the love and effort put into them? Just a thought!

  4. Those eggs look amazing, well I’ve never eaten one so I don’t know about the taste! Great work on the table toppers and appliqué. You and Sue are on a roll.

    I haven’t dyed eggs in years and years. I can’t even remember if I did it with our kids:0 But it looks like everyone had a good time. That Sue isn’t going to let any grass grow under your sewing machine is she, LOL

    Dyed eggs are always better! Good luck with your week, you did well last week.

    What fun with those dyed eggs. I remember marking the eggs with the wax crayon so we could have some of the white show through. It was so much fun and always messy. Then there were the cracked shells that left streaks of colored egg white!! There were 7 kids so we would have egg salad sandwiches in our lunch for a week. No littles in our lives right now, so no egg dyeing. But it was a birthday celebration this weekend. Hope you have a great week.

  8. Truth be told, I often got bored with the waiting, too!
    And yes, the Easter Eggs always tasted better than plain ole hard boiled eggs!

  9. Wendy says:

    I haven’t tasted a dyed egg in years, so I’ll have to trust your judgement. Looks like a fun time for everyone! We enjoyed a lovely weekend with family as well!
