To-Do Tuesday #204 Weekly Update Listing
Join us today for the 204th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Apparently while taking a break I forgot how to count. We have been playing along with To-Do Tuesday for ages – well, almost four years. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.”
To-Do for the week of March 9th – 15th:
- Work on a squirrel project – St. Patrick’s Day topper – √ Done
- Catch up on the February blocks and start the March blocks – √ Done
- Quilt the SAHRR quilt top for the 29th parade – NO WAY
- Get going on Melva’s Pieces from the Past quilt – √ Done
This squirrel project is also a DrEAMi (Drop Everything And Make it) and our OMG project as well. Talk about a three-fer. When Sue’s sister gave us a list of the table toppers or runners that she would like for a variety of upcoming holidays, we thought no hurry. Except that one is for St. Patrick’s Day which is TOMORROW. Well, obviously that project needed to be pushed to the top of the list OR it could fall to the bottom for next year. Being overachievers, it became quickly clear that it needed to be made in one day. And so it was!
That’s all you get for now. I have to write a separate post with all the details but it is finished and on her table.
How did we get so far behind and it’s only mid-March? I guess it’s not that bad but it feels like it is. Two yellow blocks, a green for RSC, and a sweet-potato-inspired for Jen’s Monthly Challenge block. A wee bit of progress was made . . . on Friday night.
More progress was made on Saturday which is how we operate. We have loads more time on the weekend to sneak in some sewing time!
I failed to convey to Sue, the fabric selector, that this month’s color of yellow was for lemons. Oops. Oh well, the block is finished and no one will ever recall the lemon part in the end!
I was highly delusional when I added quilting the SAHRR top to the list for this week. Instead, let’s talk about Colt being a one-year-old. He can no longer be called Baby Colt, Dominic informed us. It’s Baby Chase now and we acquiesce. How, oh how, can he be ONE already?! Enjoy a few Colt photos instead of the quilting of our Stay-At-Home Round Robin piece.
If you’re unsure, Colt and his peeps are BIG Cubs fans. Who knows, maybe he’ll be one of their players one day. He does have a pretty good arm . . .
Aha! I knew I was behind on more than just four blocks (see #2 above). We are also behind on the last three blocks from Melva’s Pieces From the Past sew-along. Her quilt parade starts on Thursday and I would love to have our top ready to share for that. So many distractions . . . I need to focus on these final Pieces next week for sure!
This is the Double-T block and now there are only two more blocks to complete!
To-Do for the week of March 16th – 22nd:
- Enlarge the door hanging for Andrea STAT – during the party (??!!)
- Seriously – quilt SAHRR now or else
- Finish the Pieces blocks – use Melva’s layout for placement
- Don’t forget peach and green blocks for Deanne’s daughter’s heart quilt
- Start on the QOV donation quilt and the Ballerina quilt for Addison
Sneak in THE sweetest picture of big brother Dominic holding his new baby Chase. Gosh, we adore these little ones so much . . .
