To-Do Tuesday Linky #24 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 24th linky party post and the 144th edition of the weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. Today is our stop on the Winter Blues blog hop so I hope you check out that post, too. “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off,” wrote Gladys Taber.
To-Do for the week of January 14th through 20th:
- Start on the Project Quilting challenge – √ done
- Complete the Winter Blues project – √ done
- Start quilting the OMG – √ done
We are giving the Project Quilting challenge a try. We missed the first challenge but 11.2 (season 11, second challenge) was released just yesterday at noon. I was sort of stalking the website, awaiting rather patiently for the announcement. I poked around and checked out many of the sponsors. There are so really cool giveaways . . . but let’s worry about the challenge first. One week to make something with the inspiration for “Team Colors.”
This is NOT our project! However, we did take inspiration from the fabrics used. Sunday night’s football game and the Green Bay Packers are a team we stand behind in spite of their loss. If the Bear fans can stick with them . . . well, need I say more?! Wisconsin is lucky to have many great choices like the Milwaukee Bucks, the Milwaukee Brewers, the UW Badgers, the Admirals (hockey), and others. Most of those teams mentioned are a short drive away from our home.
The Winter Blues blog hop started on Monday. Our hop day is today but I shared our Something post a wee bit early so that everyone would see the day one participants and their links. The hop runs ALL week so don’t forget to check back on all of them.
Quilting of the Geo Star Plaid quilt has begun! Woohoo! In my mind, I am calling it the Geo Plaid plaid. It is difficult to see but I’m using a gray Aurifil 50 wt thread, and it stands out just perfectly on the black fabric patches. There shouldn’t be an issue completing this for the January OMG project.
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.
To-Do for the week of January 21st through 27th:
- Finish and link the Project Quilting project by noon on the 26th
- Continue on the second snowman topper (maybe finish it?!)
- Start the Pieces From the Past first block
