To-Do Tuesday Linky #10 & Weekly Progress Update
This is the 131st edition of the weekly to-do list and the tenth post as a linky party here on our website. Thanks to everyone who joined us last week.
To-Do for the week of October 8th through 14th:
- Appliqué Fiona (
and maybe even quilt it) – √ done
- Pull fabrics for October’s block of the month– √ done
- Layer Lovey the Llama for quilting – √ done
I had off on Wednesday, and I lined up all my projects early. Before going grocery shopping at 7:30am, I had most of these all complete!
We also had some little ones as a distraction later on that same Wednesday. All of us were absorbed with Auntie Sue! This picture makes my heart SO happy!
Sweet little Fiona was born recently, and we wanted to make a wall hanging (or two) for her. Last Wednesday morning dawned early, and the first thing on my day off list to-do was to appliqué Fiona’s name. Big huge checkmark!
Sunday afternoon was dismal, the Packers weren’t playing, and worst of all the Eagles couldn’t/didn’t beat the Vikings. We headed back into the sewing room for a little bit of time and the Cutting Department got the beautiful red fabrics ready for the October challenge block of the month. Oh, how we love red and especially this red fabric!
Lovey the llama started out as a squirrel project back in August. It was put on-hold then because we had thought we would add Fiona’s name to the side, lengthwise. Since we had to wait to find out Fiona’s name we couldn’t finish Lovey right away. Then we changed our mind and made a separate wall hanging (#1).
Lovey gave me a serious look when sewing on the borders – do a good job or she’ll spit! Well, that scared me straight and I tried my hardest. Lovey was also warned that spitting is NOT allowed. We tell Dominic and Addison the same thing – no preferential treatment allowed for a llama.
For our October OMG, we’ll be making the aforementioned day pack or backpack for Catherine. Thanks to Patty’s Elm Street Quilts website and her linky party for motivating us each month.
To-Do for the week of October 15th through 21th
- Quilt and bind both Fiona and Lovey hangings
- Start and finish the day bag for Catherine – her birthday is FRIDAY
- Sew the October block if there’s time
- Start sewing the first block for pattern testing
