- Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender ✔
- Butterfly Medallion: Stitch a little on it - no progress
The plan for the weekend was to go hang out with the Scientist in Training. That didn't happen as she had a paper, a presentation, and a lab report all due Monday. One of her chemistry exams was moved from last week to Monday. So it wasn't a good weekend for just hanging out. Since I was home instead of being away, the traveling embroidery project didn't get worked on. Still it was a productive week. I'm hoping for the same with this week's To Do List.
Weekly To Do List for 03/30/2021
Grassy Creek: Press and clean up quilt top
I always manage to pick at least one fabric that tends to ravel after stitching. The yellow is that fabric in this quilt. So lots of threads to clean up once the quilt top is pressed. This is my least favorite step of getting to a finished quilt. We are off work on Friday, so the plan is to bite the bullet and just get this done so I can do more fun stuff the rest of the weekend.
Secret Easter Sewing
I decided to make Easter gifts for the SIT and her roommate. The roommate's is finished. I need to cut and assemble the SIT's. That shouldn't take too long. It's my third go at the pattern, I've got the steps down now.

I'd be farther along with this if I hadn't gotten off track with the secret Easter stitching. Still I've got three rows put together. The goal is to finish the Easter stitching and get Grassy Creek ready for quilting. If I make any progress on Morewood this week, I'll be happy.
Unity: Make HSTs for step 6 as leader and enders
Two of the Step 7 borders are done, so just two more to go. It seems to take me about a month per border. So it's been slow but steady progress.
