To-Do Tuesday Linky #20 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 20th linky party post and the 140th edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week.
To-Do for the week of December 17th through 23rd:
- Sewing time?? – √ done
- Wrap presents – make fudge – √ done
- Start a project for Addison who turns one January 4th – √ done
Have you had a lot of time for sewing? We really haven’t and that hasn’t stressed us out one bit. Sue has been tutoring a friend in Algebra this month and those sessions went right up to the end of the semester this week. I have felt like appliquéing but didn’t have a current project that was ready for me. So I read a couple books instead, the first in a series by Nancy Coco that Colette recommended.
It’s a good, light read and it makes me want to visit Mackinac Island right now! Plus, it also leads right into our to-do #2 nicely, doesn’t it?!
Wrap presents and make fudge?! Yes, ma’am. I got both of those finished, and if you were wondering about my Recipe here is what I shared back in 2017 for the Virtual Cookie exchange. I always make it in a 9×13″ pan along with an 8×8″ pan so we have plenty, and this year I packed a cute Santa-shaped tin for my boss. Look how cute it is!
For a little extra fun, Sue and I went to visit my sister and have lunch. We brought her a pretty poinsettia plant as she wasn’t feeling particularly festive this year (she lost her husband and didn’t want to decorate). It is nice to be able to share some hugs, laughter, and most of all time with family and friends at this time of year.
Our sweet baby girl will be turning one in January. How has the past year gone by so quickly? It seems like it was just yesterday that we were sure she would arrive for Christmas in 2018. But that was not to be. Here she is at 11 months. We started a new special quilt for her for her birthday but I can’t share the details yet. The pretty aqua Minky fabric can be shared – she just adores the soft textured fabrics like Minky.
I’ve never sewn or quilted with Minky before but I am hoping for good results.
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party which opened on December 1st. We were able to finish our last OMG project for 2019 with a quilt top of the monthly color blocks. I shared the details in our TGIFF linky post and will link this with Patty at the end of the month.
To-Do for the week of December 24th through 30th:
- Enjoy Christmas Eve with our peeps
- Continue on with Addison’s project
- Revisit the Quiet Book – it’s been ignored for ages!
