To-Do Tuesday #234 Weekly Update

To-Do for last week November 9th – 15th:
- Back to work on the ballerina quilt – √ Done
- Something else – I don’t know what – √ Done
I’m almost thinking that this ballerina quilt is not meant to be. Almost. The quilting pattern is a simple crosshatch approximately two-inch apart. The first pass took nine bobbins . . . I ran out of thread during the second pass. I purchased the thread a while ago. The label fell off. I don’t know where to even begin to look in all of my online shopping email messages . . . seriously. Deep breath. The first pass went well and looks good! We’re getting closer and closer to the finish line.
I’m SO happy to be sewing again. ~smile~
Something else actually did happen, but it would be considered secret sewing. I can’t share the details for a bit. However, there is something fun to share instead!
We are going to participate in the upcoming Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange Blog Hop. Our day is December 9th just in case you’d like to mark your calendar. Last week, our friend Darlene picked up the WE Energies yearly cookie cookbook for us. This year, they are celebrating military service. One of the recipes included is called, “128th Brew City Tanker Cookies.” I’ve got a hankering to make these and the first ingredient threw me for a loop. Coffee stout craft beer. Hmm. Where does one find that? Doesn’t it sound delicious, in an odd way?! I loved stout in Ireland but have never had it since that one visit. We’ve got a bead on where we can get a six-pack . . . more later as the saga continues.

To-Do for the week of November 16th – November 22nd:
- Dare I say finish the ballerina quilting – maybe.
- Continue secret sewing
- Sew something that I can actually share and discuss – it’ll be surprise for all of us!
