To-Do Tuesday #20

It's been fun to join in with Roseanne at Home Sewn by Us for 20 weeks now to post what I hope to get accomplished each week!  I find it does give me an incentive to complete whatever was on the list, at least so that I can say I did!

On last week's list:

1.  Add the 2 inch gray borders to Tiny Tuesday, and get it basted so I can start quilting it.  ✔ Done!

Here you can see the borders - more about the quilting in this week's list.

2.  Get started on some appliqued hearts. ✔  Yes, and just look!

I'm really enjoying these, and was able to prep one every day to sew that evening.

3.  Finish my book club book, The Christmas Train.  ✔  Yes, and I did enjoy the ending as a couple of commenting friends predicted!

So, for this week:

1.  Keep quilting!

I pin-basted TT on Sunday afternoon, and got a few stitches in late in the day.  I may not be able to finish the quilting this week, but I will make progress!

3.  Do some scrap sorting.  This has been needed for some time!  I toss the little leftover pieces into a basket under my cutting table, and the periodically sort them into color bins.  Let's just say it's been awhile since any sorting was done!  😣


Hope your week is getting off to a great start and that your To-Do list isn't too long!  Linking up with To-Do Tuesday at Home Sewn by Us.

Your appliqué hearts are so pretty.
My scrap tub is out of control too and I really should follow your lead and sort by colour. Happy quilting!

Those hearts are looking great! I really should sort a bin or three of scraps again sometime. Maybe this weekend.... I don't think I have anything scheduled.... yet!

it can be amazing what you find when you sort out the scrap baskets! what size finish is the tiny Tuesday quilt when done?
I have the Christmas Train on audio and started to listen to it yesterday when I was cutting scraps and will continue to today

You're ready for Valentine's already with all those pretty hearts.

Looks like you need a sorting hat!!! Looking forward to seeing TT done.

Susie H said...

I have a smaller bin, actually three!, that need to be sorted too. I keep telling myself that I need to dig in there. Good luck with your to-do list and congratulations all you accomplished last week!

Louise said...

Oh, that reminds me that my scrap bin needs to be sorted, too! It's a never-ending task :)

Oh, yes, those scrap bins are a gift that just keeps on giving :-) I keep using them, and they keep growing. You've got some good things going on!

Hi Diann! Ooh, look at all those cute little hearts. I love hand appliquéing them. I follow someone else who did a heart a day last year for a month or so and then ended up with the cutest quilt top. All happiness in those fabrics, I think. Tiny Tuesday with the gray Grunge (I think?) looks so nice. I am especially intrigued by the first purple block in the last row - it look so cool. And sorting the scrap bin - it's a never ending job which is kind of nice in a way. Thanks for linking up! ~smile~ Roseanne

I love that Tiny Quilt and that gorgeous owl sitting there. Scrap sorting, I've been doing a little of that lately, trying to make room for more projects!! Kathryn Quilts

You are doing great with making progress on quite a few fronts!! Love the hearts and I'm looking forward to seeing your quilts finished!!

Hi Diann. I’m also loving your Tiny Tuesday quilt and want to know more about it. I’ve only been reading your blog for a short time, so I don’t know any of the details about this lovely quilt. Maybe in another post you could post a link or two to past Tiny Tuesday posts to help readers like me catch up. Have a great day, Mary.

Congrats on your success with last weeks To Do list. Hope you've made good progress with this week's list.
