Weekly To-Do Update #28 – Miserable Fail
This is our 28th edition of our weekly to-do list. I love checking things off this list but that is not to be this week. I am not used to not meeting goals, even trivial ones . . .
To-Do Tuesday for the week October 16th through 22nd:
- Sew block #17 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL – pity √
- Sew four more Evening Star block (or more) – nope
- Start quilting one animal panel – nope
- Research materials for a Christmas stocking – maybe ?
Block #17 wasn’t released this week! I almost did a happy dance. Pat Sloan released the layout for the quilt instead. We will have to make block #17 next week then. HAHAHA! A break from the blocks and I really can’t count it as a finish but I’m checking it off for the week anyway. Hopefully the to-do list police won’t find out and arrest me. ~smile~
~Sigh~ We ran out of the blue fabric for this project around the 15th of the month. Did we want to drive back up to Oshkosh to get more? No. Did we know the exact name/color of the fabric? No. Does any LQS near us carry this fabric? No. I ordered ‘Marine Blue’ Burlap from MSQC on the 16th with fingers crossed and bated breath. Will it EVER get here and is it the correct color?! No, it is not. We looked at quilt shops in Indiana and the Chicagoland area. No go. Sue sent a text to the Oshkosh shop and they will mail us the fabric! Yippee! The whole project isn’t a wash . . . just delayed. Oh, and three new stars were made before all the fabric was gone.
Well, one animal panels quilt top is layered and pinned. You would think I would have this quilted and the binding on, but no. I have almost lost interest . . . except that I haven’t. HAHA – take that Evening Star. You haven’t wrecked my mojo after all. But alas this cannot be checked off either as not one stitch was made.
Research for the Christmas stocking. We carried the stocking all around to quilt shops in Indiana and Illinois on Saturday to no avail. No fabrics really matched the green or the red, nor could we find any pre-made ones. Geez! However, Sue found a store online that sells the pre-made stockings. So rather than sewing one, I ordered one. Don’t tell Dominic – we still have to cross stitch his name and a design just for him.
We received a special order request from our Etsy shop. It has to be complete in 10 days or sooner, so that is moving up the list. Someone did visit the pumpkin farm at seven weeks old and he LOVED it, Mr. Nosy:
October OMG Goal:
- Evening Star is not half done yet. Yikes only one full week to go – who knows if it will be complete or not?! IF I were a betting woman, I would put BIG money on no. ~smile~
To-Do October 23rd through 29th:
- Sew block #17 in the Grandma’s Kitchen QAL
- Special order quilt
