To Do Tuesday for the Week of 12/20/2022

My Guy and I did our last shopping expedition for stocking stuffers yesterday.  We both need to finish wrapping gifts today.  My Guy has a full day of holiday baking planned for today.  For me it's finishing off Christmas cards and laundry. Family holiday stuff starts off tomorrow as Grad Girl will be home. So it will be a busy count down to the holiday.  Even with all the holiday to dos this week, I did well on checking off the items on last week's stitching to do list. 

To Do List for 12/13/22

1. Melodic Mystery: Work on Nov and Dec clues ✔

2. Chilhowie Mystery: Work on clues 1, 2, 3, and 4 

3. Rhododendron Mystery: Make block B as leader and ender 

Three for three is a good week. It does help that I'm not making my weekly to do very challenging, pretty much any progress counts as a check mark. This week's to do will be even easier.  

To Do List for 12/20/22

1. Butterfly Medallion: Finish butterfly #5


Since we'll have so much family stuff going on, getting to my sewing room is going to be hard, but I can usually find the time to sit and embroider while we are visiting.  Grad Girl has a few Christmas gifts she needs to finish the embroidery on, so I'm sure we'll have a couple of sit down and gab while embroidering sessions before the holiday gets here.  

That's all I'm going to plan for this week. My full list will be back next week as I'm hoping to get caught up on all the mystery quilt alongs before we start 2023. 

Thank you Linda of Texas Quilt Gal for hosting To Do Tuesday.  She's hosting one more linky party and then handing the reins over to Carol of the Quilt Schmidt -For the Love of Fabric blog for 2023.  Thank you Carol for taking over.

All progress deserves a checkmark in my opinion too!! Good job! Enjoy your gift wrapping. It's one chore I enjoy. Having Grad Girl home will be a joy. Merry Christmas to you all!

I think it's wonderful that your daughter does embroidery. Such a lost art, but from what you've shown she has some real skill. Enjoy your holiday time together!

I bet you're really looking forward to Grad Girl's coming home for the holiday, Kate! Enjoy the gab and stitch times - that will be fun. It's definitely a week of the year to not put much on the list - have a lovely holiday!

Merry Christmas, Kate. Looks like Grad Girl is making it home before the storm arrives. Going to be a very cold Christmas pretty much everywhere.

You are smart to keep your to-do lists manageable. You get the satisfaction of checking things off the list, plus continue moving forward on your projects. Enjoy your time embroidering and catching up with Grad Girl.
