To-Do Tuesday Edition #15
Here is our 15th edition of our to-do list. It was a little light, but the baby shower is behind us now:
To-Do Tuesday for the week July 18th – July 24th:
- Sew block #4 in the QAL – √ done
- Make more mug rugs and microwave cozies for the shower – √ done
- Host the shower and recover – √ done
Here is the fourth block in the Pat Sloan’s quilt along called Grandma’s Kitchen. I had a little issue when I sewed one square upside down – can’t read the pattern apparently. I am having fun doing this quilt along – we need to expand our horizons. We are going to do a Christmas one that starts on August 1st as well . . . ~smile~
We had 17 mug rugs and 14 microwave cozies for the baby shower, as well as a few other miscellaneous cozies we made for requests. I raised my hand to make some additional cozies for my sister-in-law. She volunteers for an animal shelter and they have a fund raiser in December. Thanksgiving is my deadline for more. I did adapt several instructions that I found online – let me know if you’d like specifics.
We love our niece but I am glad the shower is behind us now. There were quite a few attendees. We wanted everything to be perfect, so we probably stressed more than was necessary. They received so many nice gifts. This baby-to-be has a lot of people waiting to him/her to be born, ready to lavish on the love.
We picked up the Jimmy John and the Cubs Clark quilts from the quilting service, and got the bindings added to them. Jimmy John delivered and shared in a post last week. Clark will be shared very soon! Their sibling’s quilt is getting some attention now, too. We also got the birth announcement borders added, as well as the mystery baby quilt HSTs made. I think that’s pretty good!
To-Do Tuesday starting July 25th:
- Sew block #5 in the QAL
- Continue work on the pinwheel rail fence
- Decide on the layout for the mystery baby quilt – chevron, pinwheel, who knows??
- Give the animal quilt some loving attention
- Take pictures of the color palette for Janice’s table topper and placemats
I’ll give you an update on these projects next Tuesday, August 1st. How did it get to be almost August already?!!
