To-Do Tuesday Linky #55 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 55th linky party post and the 175th weekly to-do list. Thanks to the 27th friends who linked up with us last week. I apologize for not visiting everyone’s post and celebrating your successes. Time just got away from me, as noted in my sewing progress for the week. Good thing there’s another week to try again!

To-Do for the week of August 18th through 24th:
How is it possible it’s the 25th of August already?!!! Egad.
- Live through the week – √ done
- Sew something – √ done
- Remember the OMG deadline looming – √ done
Thankfully, we both lived through the week and everyone we know did as well. I hate to be cavalier about it but sometimes it is so stressful that I think I could literally die. Sue’s mom lost her best friend. I guess at some point we all know we are going to lose our friends and family, but it is never easy. Some tears were shared over the loss and not having a final meaningful goodbye. Now that I’ve shared that sadness, it’s time to share a happy event being shared in the Thursday loves!
A family outing to the Milwaukee Zoo happened last Friday and included a ride on the train. I’m not sure why neither little could share a smile but if you tune in on Thursday, you’ll see some additional photos.
To-Do #2 and #3
A Little sewing happened on Saturday. In order to meet the OMG goal and have something special for our sweet boy’s birthday on the 2nd of September, it had to happen. Working on the weekend, even if it is from home, isn’t optimal but necessary lately. Quilting, along with family visits and baby holding really does keep us sane. Boy howdy, it is amazing how quickly we have forgotten our work routine! Being joined at the hip for the last five months, Sue and I are struggling to remember how and what we need to get accomplished on those two short weekend days.
Spending time in the sewing room is fun for us! Sue is working on lining up another project for me – I’m afraid to ask what. Straight-line quilting is my main focus to get ‘er done. ‘Er being Dominic’s big boy truck quilt for a twin-size bed. Worked be darned – he is our focus for the next week, for sure. I also found a few small spots that I’ll whip stitch closed – the interfacing didn’t hold very well. Matching thread will be a necessary – wish me luck finding it!
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her monthly linky party. One week to go to get it quilted, binding added and sewn down. We can do it!
To-Do for the week of August 25th through 31st:
- Watch Super Bowl 38 on Friday night! We know the outcome – Go Pack!
- FINISH Dominic’s big boy quilt
- Hmm. Whatever we want – maybe back to the snowman runner?! Honestly, it is doubtful that I’ll have any extra time for sewing but one can hope!
