To-Do Tuesday 18th July

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!
I achieved my sewing goals from last week and a few of the others. Well my reading goals were good! Walking – weather was so wet cut down on the days I could get out, but scraped in with just on 50 000 steps.
So this week in quilting…
  • Sew  the binding on my Garden Charm quilt. If there is a day that is fine and windy I’ll wash it too but that’s difficult in winter. Weather forecast shows rain for next 10 days!Binding for Garden Charm quilt
  • Sew the Homeward Bound block for the Splendid Sampler and whatever block is given on Friday. Would be nice if it were one I have already done!!Photo of book
  • Sew Block 3 of the Grandma’s Kitchen quilt – possibly block 4 all going well.
  • Finish off  block 4 of Bloom quilt, only have to put the borders on.

This week elsewhere

  1. Walk 50 000 steps
  2. Read 2 books
  3. Visit joinery factory to discuss bookshelves. Really – this week is it!!

Walk

  • 50000 steps in the week.

House

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.

Quilt Plan for July

There are a number of projects I have on the go! This is my plan for July

  • Week 1   –  Complete the top of the 182 Solstice Quilt so that I can fold it away for awhile until I have time to quilt it.182 Solstice Challenge blocks
  • Week 2 –    Press, baste and quilt my Lynette Jensen Craftsy Class quilt and then I have the rest of the month to bind it.  My one month major goal!2016 Block of Month Quilt - Craftsy
  • Week 3 – Catch up on the Splendid Sampler blocks that have been set so that I am up to date.Blocks for Splendid Sampler
  • Week 4 Make a start on the sew along Grandma’s Kitchen  if my fabric has arrived by then, should do. I also need to buy some light background fabric for this.  Also look at fabric requirements for the I Love Home sew along beginning in August. Any spare time I have I will work on the Bloom blocks, maybe I will get one or two more completed.
