To-Do Tuesday #25

Happy Tuesday!  How's your week going so far?

I am happy to be able to show that I finally finished the sunflower centers this week!  Whoo hoo!

They go at the top of my Scrappy Sprouts quilt, and 
getting them attached will go on my list at some point! 

Also on last week's list:

Make 4 more tree blocks using orange for my 2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. ✔

Eight blocks are done for the month!

Keep up with the daily embroidery project.  ✔

This is Sunday's little design - a sweet one!

I had planned to finish my hearts tablerunner, but didn't quite make it.  The binding was sewn early in the week, but I still have a tiny bit more of the hand quilting to finish.  The daily embroidery has ended up taking quite a bit of my slow stitching time in the evenings, and that's okay, too.

So, what's up for this week?

1.  I'm heading out to spend several days with my mom, so most of the to-dos will be what she wants "to-do!" 

2.  I'll take my daily embroidery piece to work on, so I can keep up with that.

3.  By next Tuesday, I hope to finish up my 2020 Color Challenge block.  All the pieces and parts are cut and sewn, so it should be easily doable!

I love your bright yellow/orange Dresden's - I just got mine on the quilting frame.

Flower look pretty. I sewed a Dresden quilt last summer and really had fun with it--want to do another one soon.

Those sunflowers with centers are gorgeous - Grunge to the rescue. ;)
Can't wait to see your Color Challenge block - the fabrics look pretty.
Have fun with your Mom!

Hi Diann! Oooh, your aqua fabrics look so pretty for the color block. Have fun with your mom - I know you will. Of course, I love the hand embroidery. It's so nice and easy to take with you! And your trees and sunflowers - woot woot for the checkmarks. Good luck on this week's list and thank you for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne

I've decided it is dangerous to visit your blog. I want to jump in my sewing room and make what you are making! I might try the little trees.... I'm itching to do more dresdens but will hold off this year on that. Enjoy the time with your Mom.

Lovely sunflowers! But ooh I like those HSTs!

Mari said...

Those sunflowers are so cheerful. Just what we need in February!

I love those sunflowers. I am very partial to yellow. Taking the embroidery with you is very wise. Have you coloured in the pink in the flowers? Kathryn Quilts

Those sunflowers are wonderful! And I love the green HSTs you’re using in your color block project. Have a great day, Mary.

The sunflower blocks look beautiful. Looking forward to seeing how that quilt comes together. Hope you enjoyed the time with your Mother and it was a good week.
