To-Do Tuesday #82

 Good morning!  I'm checking in with Chris and friends at Chrisknits to share my to-do list for the week.  The view outside has changed greatly in the last week.  A lot of the snow has melted, but there's still a lot there.  Unfortunately, we're in the ugly phase!  There's green grass under that snow, though!  Spring is here!

Things are moving along in the sewing room, too.  I've made progress on each of the items on last week's list.

  • I've about finished the Stay at Home Round Robin quilt top.  It's small - about 41 x 43, but I've pretty much used up everything in the half yard bundle I started with, so this is where it ends.  
One more long seam to go!

  • The blog hop quilt is finished, and my post for the hop is being written!  Almost there!   Click HERE for all the participants.

  • More sewing with green, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month, was accomplished, too.

On this week's list:
  • Make a backing for the SAHRR and get it spray basted for quilting.  That's a biggie for me, and something I need to focus on!
  • One last green project to make a few blocks for - the Full Stop RSC sampler quilt for this year.  March's blocks are brackets - I'm thinking I need 2 or 3 more for the row.

Just ignore that green crumb heart - something I was playing with the other day!

I know what I'll be working on this week - better get to work!

Oh, SAHRR is looking great! Can't wait to see how you quilt it! Great job finishing up other goals. Thanks for linking up today!

It does look like a lot has melted. What you need is some of our rain to wash it all away--that's always a quick-fix for the ugly phase :o). The RR is finishing up nicely!

You are rocking your list! Looking forward to your day on the blog hop and your finish of your SAHRR!

Love your SAHRR!! Truly! I'm always anxious for the "ugly" snow to go away or hoping for more "pretty" snow to cover it up. At this stage of March, I'd be hoping it made a quick exit. Haha

The ugly snow stage is depressing, but as long as you get peeks at green grass it isn't too bad;) You have enough done for the both of us, good thing as I haven't done much lately. That will change in a few weeks.

You've done really well with your list this week! Yay for finishing the SAHRR (get that baby basted!!) I can drag my shorts on basting, so I'm cheering you on. I need to baste my improv, so I'll baste mine if you baste yours - LOL! Your other projects are looking great, too!

That is a lot of snow! Hard to believe grass can grow under it. Nature is amazing. I like the way your SAHRR finished.

I'm at the same spot with my Salt and Sand project. Done, but still need to finish my blog post. Looking forward to seeing what you have made, Diane!

Isn't it nice when you can use up a fabric bundle? Your SAHRR and rainbow scrap challenge are both looking so good!

Your Stay at Home round robin top is beautiful, Diann! Have you decided how to quilt it? The green crumb heart looks cute, I can't ignore it.
About the snow you mentioned, the picture shows the ugly phase, for me it looks really pretty.
