To-Do Tuesday Linky #22 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 22nd linky party post and the 142nd edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. Today is the first link up for 2020. Last week, we had a giveaway and the winner is Maggie. A search on Google for a random number generator gave me an easy option. It handily chose the number six and Maggie’s link-up won.
We sent Maggie some goodies to start the new year off with some quilting love.
To-Do for the week of December 31st through January 6th:
- Decide on our January OMG project – √ done
- Wrap up the Quiet Book project – √ done
- Start working on the 2020 January color block – √ done
Setting the January OMG was difficult because there are so many possibilities to select from. In the end, the Geo Star Plaid quilt top called out. Luckily, I had just written about it in the Quarter Four Finish-A-Long Recap post. Kathleen left a comment and sent a suggestion about how to quilt it and bingo! Yes, I could and would use her suggestion and the OMG project was born. Woot woot!
Oh yes, the Quiet Book is finished and even posted about. I think we may be replacing the shoelaces we used initially because they are kind of slippery for tying. Some nifty neon green might fit the bill – most shoelaces are so long!! I found a pair that are 30″ which still seems lengthy – we’ll see how they work. We shared a post with all the different pages and more details just last Friday if you’d care to take a peek.
For the new year, Jen at Patterns by Jen has started the 2020 monthly color challenge. We did start cutting the fabrics for this beautiful yellow block. Our background fabric for this year is a solid Kona black. The yellow stands out SO nicely against the black and it doesn’t look bee-ish at all.
Dominic was over (naturally, and with his sister!) and played with the Quiet Book with Auntie Sue. Here’s a sweet picture of him switching out the ice cream flavors – and giving Auntie Sue a lick. She doesn’t like chocolate ice cream, Dominic. You’ll have to eat those ice cream cones yourself or give it to Auntie Rose. <wink>
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party which opened on January 1st. As we shared above in to-do #1, we will be quilting our Geo Star Plaid quilt top.
