To-Do Tuesday July 11th

Stitch ALL The Things
This week I am joining up with Stitch All the Things to look at what I need to do in the coming week, or lets re-word that… what I want to do!
Last Week.


  • Complete the top of the 182 Solstice pattern top and once the fabric arrives start the next quilt along Grandma’s Kitchen and decide whether to go for white or cream background. Hoping it will come in the next week.     Done.
  • Start the quilting of a Craftsy class quilt – 2016 Block of Month – at least pin baste it together, ready for stitch in the ditch.    Done
  • Do the embroidery on block of Splendid Sampler   Not Done
  • Once embroidery block is finished start the Sew South Splendid Sampler block which has hexagons, so will be hand sewing. Not Done but started.


  • Read The Dress in the Window by Sofia Grant and review.  Done


  • Complete 50 000 steps for the week.    Done   59 000


  • Clean some windows!    Some progress.
  • Visit joinery factory and discuss possibility of bookshelves/cupboards/TV combination thing. I am hesitant because of space but I so need shelves and don’t know where else to put them but in lounge/sitting room.    Sadly no.

July 11th Week


  • Continue with stitching in the ditch on Craftsy Garden Charm quilt 2016, ideally would like to get this part finished by next Tuesday.  Start of stitch in the ditch
  • Sew block 2 and maybe 3 of Grandma’s Kitchen sew along. Block 1 is completedBlock 1 of Grandma's Kitchen
  • Sew some embroidery stitches on embroidery splendid sampler block and maybe do a few more hexagons for another block in it.


  • Read 2 books at least and listen to The Stars are Fire by Anita Shreve as I stitch in the ditch.  (Borrowed on CD from the Library).


  • 50000 steps in the week.


Well can see and do know really housework not a high priority and I am nervous about this book case I kind of want but just not sure that it will be too over powering in a smallish room but on the other hand I have little storage space and need some! So putting these two goals back in again for this week.

  • Clean some more windows
  • Visit joiners to discuss book case/cupboards/TV thing.

  1. Hi Kathryn,
    I am doing the GK quilt along, too. I love your block – the colors really compliment each other so well and bring out that center flower perfectly. I would love it if you posted it on my FB page – and block 2 ( I have a few friends playing along – this is my first quilt along. WOWEE – you are doing great on your steps. I need to get some of that mojo now that my plantar fasciitis is finally under control – you are inspiring me! ~smile~ Roseanne P.S. I see you’re on WordPress – I will follow you.


    • What fun that you are doing your first quilt along. I had plantar fasciitis a few years back, thought it would never go. Occasionally get a small twinge but its stayed away. Hope yours does too. Will check out the FB page.

      • Hi again, I hope you are correct!!! If I never have pf again, it will be SOOO nice. I forgot what no pain felt like. Thanks so much for your visit and sweet comment. ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. That was quite a list last week; what great progress!! And yay for meeting your steps goal and then going over 9,000 steps! I took my tracker off a week ago and forgot to put it back on. I was so focused on other things I didn’t even realize it wasn’t there! I just grabbed it and am wearing it again, hopefully I’ll pay better attention this week!

    Your Grandma’s Kitchen block is beautiful! Your piecing is spot on, and those fabrics are great! Love everything about it!


    • Thanks Christine. Occasionally I forget to wear my tracker and that is really annoying especially when a long walk might have happened! I think I will enjoy doing the Grandma’s Kitchen blocks.

    • Thanks Sharon. Pink tones are not usually a colour I go for but I could grow to love it, plus in the end it won’t be for me. I chose the poetry fabric that Pat Sloan gave as one option so need to credit her!!
