To-Do Tuesday #215 Weekly Update
Join us today for the 215th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.” We are joining Chris at her To-Do Tuesday linky party.
To-Do for the week of June 1st – 7th:
- Settle on a June OMG project – √ Done
- Quilt our arrows for the Follow QAL – Not done
- Start enjoying Sue’s birthday month – √ Done
For our June One Monthly Goal, we are making a table topper. We shared our post on Patty’s linky party at her website, Elm Street Quilts. Made featuring flip flops and flowers, it is going to be given to Sue’s sister, Janice. We think it will be perfect for the start of summer and to match her kitchen towels featuring flip flops.
I started the appliqué process using Schmetz non-stick needles. Thanks to Vasudha (Storied Quilts) who mentioned them in her post a while back, I picked some up at the Fat Quarter Shop. WOW! Do they make a difference! There were no issues with the adhesive sticking to the needle at all – it was slick as butter or perhaps Teflon. Nifty and I highly recommend them!
There’s an upcoming quilt parade on the 15th for our arrow quilt. Sandra’s quilt-along called Follow Your Own Path started in early April. I suspect I’ll be doing some FMQ on Saturday to get it all ready for the linky party!
Sue’s birthday was yesterday and we were able to celebrate it on Sunday with the littles and some of our peeps. We’ll be celebrating all month long, including seeing my sister on the 17th. Her birthday is tomorrow!

Extra: sweet little Addison had a problem with her summer skort pieces. They were all too big around the waist – they fell right down to her ankles. Auntie Rose to the rescue! I sewed a temporary tuck in each waistband on six of her outfits. I took in some of them over two inches! Her swimsuit bottoms had to be taken in, too.
Another note – the 2021 Hands2Help charity quilt event has ended for this year. An amazing 197 quilters participated donating 1044 quilts. Thank you to all who participated and to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for organizing this huge event.
Our one monthly goal (OMG) project for June is to complete flip flops and flowers table-topper. Patty at Elm Street Quilts hosts a monthly linky party and we shared our post goal.
To-Do for the week of June 8th through 14th:
- Continue the appliqué work on the flip flops
- Quilt our arrows for the Follow QAL parade on June 15th
