Even with, or maybe due to, all the stuff going on in the world my sewing mojo returned last week. Consequently a lot of progress was made on last week's To Do list.
Weekly To Do List for 06/23/2020
Frolic: assemble center ✔
Unity: Step 3, make more sawtooth stars ✔
Storm at Sea: finish borders, find backing ✔
Mosaic Mystery: Make label ✔
I didn't find the backing for Storm at Sea, but I spent a good amount of time searching for it. Now I'm not sure if it actually got ordered, so I checked that item as complete. Compared to the previous two weeks, last week was definitely a good one.
So what's the plan for this week? With the 4th of July holiday coming this weekend and some time off, My Guy has requested we do some things together and get out of the house for a bit. There's the thought of doing a wild flower photography expedition this weekend and spending time with the Scientist in Training, so I'm probably not going to get as much sewing time over the weekend as usual. So I'm paring down the To Do list accordingly.
Weekly To Do List for 06/30/2020
Frolic: Trim, start on light blue border
I've made some of the HSTs that were called for in the instructions for Frolic, but not enough to surround the whole quilt. So the ones that are finished will be worked into the final black border. At least that's the plan for now.
Mosaic Mystery: Finish and press binding
The binding just needs one seam sewn to be finished. I should be able to finish that and get the binding pressed then rolled onto an old wrapping paper tube ready to be sewn on once I get the quilt trimmed.
Unity: Make more Sawtooth Stars for step 3
Just one more border star up on the design wall this week, but there are more in the works at the sewing machine. Hopefully I'll have enough stars this week to actually have one of the four borders complete.
That's my to do list for this week. We are taking a staycation next week. We've got a few home improvement projects planned, but I'm hoping to work in a couple of nothing but stitching days. Next week's to do list will definitely be more ambitious.
