Weekly Tuesday To-Do #37 – Last for 2017
This is our 37th edition of our weekly to-do list and the last one for 2017. Want to join in? Tuesday’s link party can be found on Christine’s Stitch All the Things website (except not this week). ~smile~
To-Do Tuesday for the week December 18th through 24th:
- Continue working on the January table runner – √ done
- Add sashing to Dr Seuss blocks – √ done
- Bake three more batches of cookies for #4 . . . – √ done
- Host a Christmas Eve party and enjoy the heck out of our family – √ done
Last week Friday I mentioned the issues we were having with this table runner since we shortened the table runner by one snowman. We forgot to adjust the little blocks running around for the outside border. Oops!
Our second Dr. Seuss quilt has its layout determined, and solid black Moda sashing is up next in the project. Here are the blocks on our design wall.
Susan Marie decided that we needed to make NINE different types of desserts for our Christmas selection. NINE! Besides the two recipes that we shared in the virtual cookie exchange earlier this month, we tried some recipes from the 2017 We Energies Cookie Book. They include Cheese Cookies, Carrot Cookies w/Goat Cheese (we are calling them Reindeer cookies), and
Coffee Shorts. I talked her out of the coffee shorts because who wants to bite into a coffee crystal?! Additionally, peanut butter blossoms, chocolate chunk, and pecan dreams were made along with mocha cheesecake for Dominic’s dad (and me!).
A house full of people is just the best. Sue’s mom and dad, sister and her whole family, and her brother’s son and his whole family gather on Christmas Eve at our house. It is so much fun eating, laughing, chatting and just hanging out. Dominic was busy enjoying his older cousins – he wants to be a big boy and run and play with them. Soon, grasshopper. Too soon! One nephew has a new girlfriend who joined us and fit right in. Here’s peewee making himself laugh!
December OMG Goal:
- Complete the appliqué of the nautical pieces for both pillow shams – the pillow shams are complete and have been delivered! I will be sharing another post featuring them this week! Yippee!
To-Do December 25th through 31st:
- Get busy on Dr. Seuss
- Make a list of our UFOs
- Prepare for the Regatta sew along starting January 1st
