Tuesday To-Do's: Spring Has Finally Arrived!

It is finally feeling like spring around here
which is putting everyone in a better mood.
Everyone is out walking, biking, working in
the yard--anything to be outside of the house!

I've been inside way more than I'd like, for sure,
but that will be changing.  Before I get to that, 
I want to check in on what I've gotten done
over the last week.

1)  Finish the Americana quilt
Well, I didn't finish it but I've been working
on quilting it a little here and thereSee #3.

2) Make two Farmer's Wife blocks


Just one completed.  Again, see #3.

3) Finish all masks
 I finished!!
I completed 355 surgical masks for the hospital!
🎉Hallelujah! 🎉
It feels like that is all I've done for weeks!  Getting
back to quilting, or anything else, seems as great
as the arrival of this spring weather.
Oh, today is a GOOD day!

4) Don't take on ANY more mask orders
This was a super easy one--I didn't!

5) Knitting
I got a decent amount done.


Still frustrated with my choice but so be it;
the scarf is slowly growing.  I look forward to
making this again some day in a solid.

Accomplishing my to-do's for next week looks
more promising than it has in about a month.

1) Not to sound like a broken record but...
finish the American quilt.  Really.

2) Start a new quilt!
I've been really excited to start this one.
I always say my quilting tastes are all over the place.
I'm usually traditional but I think I can find something
I like in almost every category--almost.


Anyhoo, I'm just giddy about starting this one.
After all those blue/white masks, this is going to
be such a breath of fresh air--and therapeutic.

3) Continue with evening knitting on scarf

4) Figure out this month's Christmas finish
In January, I joined the "One X-Mas Item A Month"
group.  I don't even have an idea of what to make
next but projects are to be posted on the 25th of every
month so I need to get on it--fast!

None of this is outside but there's always garden
work, decks to clean, plants to be potted...
you get the idea.  But when it's time to rest?
I plan on sitting outside in the sun, or on a deck,
or in the garden--I have created lots of resting spots!
I think after making over 400 masks, I've earned it.

I'm looking forward to being back next Tuesday
with some actual quilting progress!

Happy quilting!

Wow, that's a lot of masks. I'd would have never made it. Pat yourself on the back, you deserve it (and the nice rest on the deck).

Congrats on all those face and nose covers! You deserve a bit of time to enjoy your spring and the fresh air. Love you new project! It will be stunning.

Hi Cheree! Love, love, LOVE your new project!!! I think I have a kit with this fabric and pattern - I purchased it at the end of the year but haven't started it. Now that I see that you are making this, I can't help but wonder why I haven't started it myself. LOVE IT! HAHA - good luck with your Christmas finish this week. I wonder what you'll come up with?!! Enjoy that sunshine on the deck. We have some today but it's chilly - only 34 with a wicked wind. I would love just going outside and sitting in the rocking chair on the porch but it's too soon for us. {{Hugs}} a bunch and good luck with this week's list. Thanks for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne
