To-Do Tuesday Linky #23 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 23rd linky party post and the 143rd edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. I hope we’re all getting settled into our groove for 2020.
To-Do for the week of January 7th through 13th:
- Piece the Winter Blues – √ done
- Trace the Salem Witches embroidery project – √ done
- Make another snowman table topper – √ done
Sharing this wonderful quote this week: “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off,” wrote Gladys Taber. Your to-do list shouldn’t make you feel stressed or inadequate if you check nothing off of it. This is supposed to be FUN! I hope to add it to each week’s message going forward.
We are participating in a blog hop called Winter Blues. It starts on Monday, January 20th and runs for the entire week. Our day is Tuesday the 21st, so we need to have our project ready to go soon. We decided to make something for my sister as she just adores all things blue. Here’s a peek at a bit of the trimming associated with some half-square triangles (HSTs).
When this blog first started, we went on a road trip with our friend, Carol, and picked up a nifty pattern by Crabapple Hill. That was in September 2017 – no rush, huh?! Of course, there’s a whole story behind this simple, cute, little photo but we’ll suffice it to say this overlooked project has been started. If you’d like to see the recently finished version, head over to Tracy’s blog. She finished up her quilt top right before Halloween and it took her about three years to complete it. We’re on our way!
Did you happen to notice that a sweet girl (Addison) was sitting on the grandmother’s snowman table topper at her first birthday celebration? Let me remind you . . .
Now that we’ve all enjoyed some sweetness overload, let me think – what are we talking about?! Oh yeah, another table topper. Yes, we have been asked to make another topper for a friend. Luckily enough, we have JUST enough of the same fabrics to make one more. Of course, it will be sans baby and Olaf cake crumbs but that’s okay. I foresee more appliqué pieces in my very near future.
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party which opened on January 1st. Our project for this month is to quilt the Geo Star Plaid Quilt Top. I love this quilt top and cannot wait to have it complete.
