Last week’s to do list:

  1. Raining Cats and Dogs … hand quilt an arm length of thread every day… done.  I was able to do this 5 days out of the week!  woohoo.  
  2. Hand work – Work a bit on A Rainbow Gardendone
  3. Knit – Pick a new project, pick the yarn, read through the materials/pattern, and assuming it’s a craftsy class.  Start watching the lessons. … done… I’m going to do some sock knitting.  I’ve never knitted a sock but I have a sock class on Craftsy and I’ve been meaning to learn.  
  4. Cross Stitch – For the Welcome project finish the embroidery on the right border and for Bukid, finish the second row of the 1st page! … not done.  I have embroidered and I’m working on this a bit at a time so I’m okay with not actually finishing the embroidery on the right border on the Welcome project or finishing the second row of Bukid.  I’m just happy to get a bit done every week. 🙂 
  5. Moon Glow – This is now on the frame and I would just like to do a row of quilting every day… I’m quilting a bit on this but not every day like I planned.  This is okay because I just do not have the time to do it every day.  Again, I’m happy to be getting bits done at a time. 🙂 
  6. Missing Ivy – Step 11, which is piecing the inner top together. … not done.  But I pieced pairs together. 
    1. Missing Ivy Step 11 - unfinished I was able to sew pairs together.  5/30/2016

  7. Celtic Solstice – put together pieces of Block B as leaders and enders between working on Missing Ivy. … done… continuing to work on these as leaders and enders. 
  8. Spooky Halloween – Row 1, Block 1 – Finish applique’ing the hexis onto the background and applique the bat. … done… I finished block 1 before my last post and I just didn’t update this properly. I got block 1 and block 5 finished this last week and I’m working on 2, 3, and 4 this week.  2 is almost done.  I have a bit of applique and embroidery to do.  I have piecing left for block 3 and block 4 needs to be completely worked on. 
  9. Provence BOM – Block 10 … not done… 

This week’s to do list:

  1. Raining Cats and Dogs … continue to hand quilt an arm length of thread every day.
  2. Hand work – Work a bit on A Rainbow Garden
  3. Knit – watch the first lesson of the sock class on Craftsy and cast on my first sock.
  4. Cross Stitch – For the Welcome project finish the embroidery on the right border and for Bukid, finish the second row of the 1st page!
  5. Moon Glow … continue to quilt this every day.

  1. You made a lot of headway. Considering you have so many projects, it’s great that you get something done on almost all of them each week!

  2. Good luck on your sock making adventure! I knit my first pair this past winter and loved it – I’ve made several pairs now. Crazy Mom Quilts has free directions on her blog that I’ve used. I hope you’re meeting some of your goals this week – happy stitching!
