To Do Tuesday for the Week of 10/27/2020

Just a few days left in October. November will definitely be underway when we make out next week's list. But I should focus on the here and now to come up with this week's list. Before doing that, I should take a quick detour to look at the progress on last week's to do list. 

Weekly To Do List for 10/20/2020

  • Frolic: Prep for quilting and mail - progress
  • Red, White & Blue Stars: finish sashing the blocks
  • Morewood Mystery: Continue to make October's blocks
  • Unity: Make more HSTS and blocks for clue 4
It wasn't a stellar week on the stitching front.  The only progress last week was on getting Frolic ready to send out for quilting.  The trip to my mother's took up a couple of days and work took a bite out of a couple of evenings.  Some weeks are just going to be that way.  Hopefully this next week will be much more productive.  

Weekly To Do List for 10/27/2020

Frolic: Prep for quilting and mail

All that's left to de-thread and press is the bottom and side borders.  So just one more evening should be enough to finish this off.  I'm off work two days this week, so it shouldn't be hard to find time to finish packing the quilt up and get it to the post office.  

Christmas Mystery: Trim quilt, make label and binding

This quilt came back from Trudy last week. The quilting looks great. So it's ready for trimming up and binding.  I've been working on the label off and on since the quilt was sent out for quilting.  I may have a few more tweaks, but the label is close to done. The stash will need to be raided for a suitable binding. This to do should be pretty easy to mark off. 

Red, White and Blue Stars: Continue sashing blocks

There was no progress on the stars last week. Hopefully I can get the rows all assembled this week.  

Morewood Mystery: Work on the October blocks

Another project with no progress last week. The next clue comes out Thursday, so I'm likely going to fall behind on this mystery.  

Unity: Continue with clue 4 HSTs and blocks

Unity, 2020 Bonnie Hunter Sew-In-Place Quilt Along

Another project where there was no progress last week.  Just a few more friendship stars are needed to finish off the last border in clue 4.  The border's not going to get done, but all I'm looking for on this to do is progress.  

That's my list for this week. Hopefully I'll make better progress on it than I did on last week's list.  Linking up with Home Sewn by Us for To Do Tuesday.

I think you are doing well to get done with what you do seeing as you work outside of the home also - you are too hard on yourself

As you say, some weeks are just not going to happen. But as long as progress is being made somewhere you will get done!

Some weeks are harder than others. Love that Frolic quilt and your Bonnie Hunter quilt.

Hi Kate! I have off two days this week too! Thursday and Friday . . . and I hope to sew, sew, sew. We'll see if that comes to fruition or not. LOVE your label for the Christmas Mystery quilt. Can't wait to see it all complete - binding time! Good luck with this week's list and thanks for linking up. Enjoy your days off! ~smile~ Roseanne

The backs of your quilts are so neat and tidy. I think of them every time I look at my very messy backs; I don't dare show them on my posts - LOL. Your Christmas tree quilt is lovely.

OOOOO - lots of eye candy today!! I love that label especially. I often forget to put labels on my quilts but need to be more consistent about it.

It seems like a lot of us had a lower-progress kind of week. Maybe we're all gearing up for the holidays? Fall can be such a busy time. Good luck on your to-do's!
