2022 Tuesday To-do #9: Top #9 Finish, Lucey Prep Winding Down

Texas Quilt Gal invites all to-do'ers to link up
and show what our accomplishments have been
for the past week and hopefully inspire each other
to get all the things done in the week to come.

From last week:
1) Finish Pines

#9 Pine Tree Lane

2) Visit LQS "B"
Done.  Actually "B" and "C".

I still didn't find my neutral but it's okay.  I'm patient
there, especially with other things on my plate. 

We (a friend and I) still both found some goodies
and a little road trip is always good for the soul.
The lighting is a bit off above but these are all going
to my blue collection.  I got 3 yds of the stripe thinking
it would make nice binding for 3? of Edyta's quilts.

The collection isn't big enough yet but I'm having fun
taking my time.  Someday soon it will be a real treat
to finally get started working through that book.

3) Continue preparing for Lucey
Oh goodness, have I been preparing!
Everything was moved out and the room now has two
coats of paint.  I ran out of time to get it in this post
so I'm hoping to cover it in a separate one, or at least
all next week.

I made no moves toward starting quilt #10 but I did get 
two backings pieced so now 8 of the 9 tops have backs.
I've also been thinking thinking about getting labels
and bindings made up for all of them but hey,
let's not be an overachiever, right?

Both of my ironing boards received new covers.
Last fall when my iron appeared to be unusually hot,
I barely tapped it to the board and it instantly scorched
that ugly brown iron mark that makes you look forgetful.
 (Soooo glad I didn't put it on something important!)
(And yes, I tossed that iron!)
  It only took me about 6 months to get it switched out.
   Because I like them to match, I did my smaller one too.

Next week's To-Do's:
Looking ahead, well gracious!  It's a big week!
I have a class on the ins and outs of Lucey on Thursday
and then Friday is the big day!  I pray she travels well;
I see snow and rain in the forecast.

1)  Finish painting studio
I will check today, once the sun comes up, to see if a
little more trim work (esp along ceiling) is required.

2) Long arm class in OK

3) Back to OK to get Lucey & set her up

4) Pics and post on the process

I'll see you all back here next Tuesday
 with pics of the big day!

Happy quilting!

It sounds like you are ready for Lucey to arrive. More than an iron is going to be smokin’ in that room. I can’t wait to see pics. Hope the shoulder hasn’t been overworked with the painting.

You have an exciting week ahead, and I know how hard you've been working to be ready for Lucey! Exciting!

I can't wait to see Lucey in her new place! Have fun on your trip to OK, sounds like an exciting time for you. That sure is a pretty ironing board cover.
Thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!

Your Pines quilt is lovely! I like how those flying geese fall into each other! Your ticking will indeed make a beautiful binding! Beautiful- and appropriate- for your ironing board cover!

Those new additions to your blue stash are pretty! And, good for you, getting all those backings ready, too. Lucey is going to be a busy girl! Have a great week getting Lucey home and up and running.

Beautiful blue fabrics come home with you. Can't wait to see the beauties you will make with them.

Hi Cheree! I'm so excited that it's almost time to pick up Lucey!! Woohoo. We're all cheering you on and can't wait to see all the pics. I wonder what you're going to quilt first? {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

So exciting for you getting your long arm Lucey. I like Edyta Sitar's quilts and sounds like you have big plans. I was just watching her mystery QAL on You Tube but I don't want to buy the ruler so not doing it. But will still watch along.
