To-Do Tuesday Linky #26 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 26th linky party post and the 146th edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off,” wrote Gladys Taber.
To-Do for the week of January 21st through 27th:
- Trace the second panel of the Salem Witches embroidery project – √ done
- Make a pentagon ball – √ half done
- Deliver Carol’s blue and white table runner – √ done
- Maybe finish the second snowman table topper – √ done
Sue has been having a blast embroidery stitching the first panel. We decided to trace the second panel so she wouldn’t have any downtime with stitching. You will see in this photo a portion of the design and the basic clips we use to keep it on the lightboard. The next steps include coloring but we had to put the crayons away because both Dominic and Addison know how to ‘color’ now!
The pentagon ball has been a
slight MAJOR PIA. Five sides plus one top equals one half of the ball. Twelve pieces are needed not six. So yeah, I had my nice six pieces all cut out in Disney Cubs fabric. Isn’t it cute?!
Pressing on our new wool mat, I took a photo of four of the pieces together.
I continued sewing, even mentally commenting to myself that it was an ODD shape. Yes, it was ODD because it was missing a whole half of the ball. I scare myself sometimes.
Sue is encouraging me to just forget about this darn ball, but a ball isn’t getting the best of me! A pentagon ball WILL be made if it kills me. That is very easy to say now that I can voice, “HA HA HA, pentagon ball.” You didn’t kill me and here is the proof in the pudding. A simple tutorial was going to be shared but I was so darned annoyed with myself and this ball, I couldn’t bring myself to write it.
We did give my sister her Something Blue table runner this weekend. It has a fun back story that got my niece involved with measuring her table on the sly. We spent time chatting about anything and everything and had lunch when my niece joined us. More photos to come in Thursday’s post.
The second snowman table topper is altogether. We layered it with the same pretty red swirly fabric and now it awaits quilting. Eyes will be added after quilting so that I don’t break a needle or anything else.
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party which opened on the first. We have decided to finally quilt our 2019 Color-Block quilt. Fittingly enough, I hope to have this all finished for our next TGIFF hosting party on the 27th/28th. How ironic is that?!
To-Do for the week of February 4th through 10th:
- Layer the February OMG project
- Make the color block for February (aqua)
- Project Quilting 11.3 – put a heart on it
