To-Do Tuesday Linky #36 & Weekly Progress Update
Join us for the 36th linky party post and the 156th weekly to-do list. Thanks to everyone who linked up with us last week. “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off,” wrote Gladys Taber.
To-Do for the week of April 7th through 13th:
- Make a few masks for Andrea – √ done
- Quilt a growth chart – √ done
- Do something else – anything! – √ done
We made a few masks for our niece, Andrea. Since she is on the front lines fighting COVID-19, we don’t mind one bit. On our first template, we used elastic and no nose piece fashioned from with a pipe cleaner. Once we found out what adjustments were needed we moved on to using t-shirt strips for earpieces and the pipe cleaner. Then we made her four more so that she has plenty to work with before needing to wash them.
We also made a few masks for Sue’s mom and dad, my sister and niece, and even for us. The mask Andrea is modeling for us has a telemetry reading for sinus tachycardia. The telemetry nurse had to come over to see her mask because she heard about it from the other nurses. ~big smile~
Quilt an endearing giraffe growth chart to record our littles growth information. We found this cute chart ages ago at our local quilt shop and knew we needed it.
I didn’t do a whole lot of quilting on this piece. After outlining the basic shape of the giraffe, I did some simple bumps to look like clouds in the sky. We’ll record the kiddos heights on the growth chart and get it bound for a Friday finish.
Do something else – anything! That’s pretty freewheeling, isn’t it?!! And I didn’t do a single thing other than what’s mentioned above. I just cannot motivate myself other than to complete the bare essentials. That list I shared for quarter two is going to be hard-pressed to finish at this rate.
Thank you to Patty’s at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party. This month’s project is to get the half-hexagon baby quilt top together. I’d like to find some quilting inspiration for it as well if there’s any lying about.
To-Do for the week of April 14th through 20th:
- Sew the binding on the giraffe growth chart
- Get a head start on an Easter table topper for next year since this year is over
- If those two get done I’ll feel accomplished!
