2021 Tuesday To-Do #7: Short and Sweet

Being gone all weekend, I wasn't able to
check much off the list but here it is:

1) Snowflakes:  Complete 3 or more blocks
Done.

Ten completed, six to go.

2) HST's:  start on St. Pat's projects.
Done.


Since my Valentine's placemats were still out, 
replacing those was my first order of business. 


These scrappy green HST's are leftovers from the
Irish chain quilt I made last year.  Like my other mats,
these are extra-small.   I wanted them pretty neutral
(no clovers, leprechauns or other shenanigans)
so that they'll work after St. Patrick's Day.

3) Knitting: make progress
Nope.
(Incidentally, I noticed that when I linked up my
Irish chain quilt, there was my current knitting
project--a whole year ago.  Yes, I'm cringing.)

4) Baby quilts: maybe start cutting out?
Nope.

Flying out Thursday night and getting back late
Sunday left very little time for sewing.
Even with a couple nopes, I'm happy with my
progress.  And anyway, we were with family
celebrating my FIL's 70th birthday which,
as we all know, only comes once in a lifetime.

It seems like things just never slow down but
the week ahead is actually looking fairly open.  
Can this be?   Is someone messing with me?
Who's pulling my thread?

1) Snowflakes:  Finish last 6 blocks.

2) HSTs:  More green projects.

3) Knitting: some solid progress
(This needs to get done!)

4) Baby quilts:  get started already!

Happy quilting!

Great progress on what you did get done! There is always more time to finish quilts. Birthdays are more important to celebrate! Have a great day!

Keep going on those snowflakes! 😉 I really like your March tabletopper - great way to use up more leftover HSTs!

Hi Cheree! I'm so glad you were able to celebrate your FIL's 70th with him. You're ahead of your goal for the snowflakes! And I'm glad you clarified your St. Patrick's Day project - I was wondering if the green wasn't showing up or what. I'm all for the multi-purpose placemats and no shenanigans! I hope the week ahead does slow down for you! ~smile~ Roseanne

I think you accomplished a lot this week, especially considering you weren't home the whole time. I am loving your snowflake blocks -- and I'm so glad you were able to celebrate this milestone birthday with family.

Your snowflake quilt is coming along so pretty. you are doing a great job. It appears that it is really best made with Paper piecing and I do not do PP. Thx for sharing! Hugs
