To Do List for the Week of 07/09/2024

It's been a whirl wind couple of days.  We went to Texas to visit Grad Girl for the 4th of July weekend.  We had planned to stay till Monday to avoid the homeward bound traffic from 4th of July.  Those plans changed when they issued tropical storm warnings for Brazos county due to Beryl. We had a serious rethink and left late Sunday afternoon to drive to Dallas.  It's pretty flat in that part of the state and it doesn't take much for parts of the roads to flash flood, so it just seemed wise to avoid that potential problem.

We left for Texas last Wednesday.  So there wasn't a lot of time in the sewing room last week. Consequently, there aren't a lot of check marks on the to do list. 

To Do List for 07/02/2024

1.  2024 SAHRR: Package and mail ✔   
2.  Kate's Choice: Continue making blocks ✔
3.  Guild BOM: Finish June block - progress
4.  2023 SAHRR: Hand stitch binding - progress
5.  Wild and Goosey: Finish blue blocks, start teal blocks - progress
6.  Indigo Way: Continue as leaders and enders project ✔

Not my strongest week, but I'll take whatever progress I can make on those projects.  This week should be much better.  We are done with travel till the fall.  So I can be much more ambitious with my sewing room plans.

To Do List for 07/09/2024

1.  2023 SAHRR (Quilting Gail): Finish binding

Stitching down the binding was my hand work project while we were in Texas.  I managed to turn two corners and came close to turning the third. It won't take much effort to finish this project.  

2. Kate's Choice: Continue making blocks

The next block for this project is a log cabin, which is partially assembled.  This should be easy to finish up. I should start cutting the pieces for the next block.  

3. Guild BOM: Finish June block, start July block

The last pieced border is almost assembled.  All that's left once that's been added is a final border of the green/blue print.  Definitely doable this week.  

4.  Wild and Goosey (Bonnie Hunter): Finish up the blue blocks, start teal blocks. 

One of the blue blocks is almost finished.  The blocks go pretty quickly if I'm at the sewing machine. This should be easy to check off this week. 

5.  Indigo Way (Bonnie Hunter): Finish the setting triangles, start assembly.  

Two of the setting triangles just need the last seam pressed, so just two left to finish.  I'm looking forward to starting assembly.  

That's my list for this week.  Linking up with The Quilt Schmilt for To Do Tuesday.

Glad you got a chance to spend some time with Grad Girl over the holiday weekend, but sorry it was cut short by the hurricane! Was she affected by the bad weather yesterday? Your guild BOM blocks are sure pretty! I love the blues and greens together.

I hope Grad Girl wasn't without power from Beryl for too long and all is well. Looks like you are set up to make great progress this week!

Hi Kate, it sounds like you had a good, if short visit and that your projects are all moving along. Enjoy the rest of the summer! We may be getting lots of rain from Baryl this week. Chances were low but possible. I guess we'll find out soon. Take care.

I am so glad you go to visit, Grad Girl even though you had to cut your trip short. Were you able to avoid the bad weather? I love the backing fabric for your SAHRR. I wish you the best on completing the binding and working on all of your projects. Hugs.

Hard to get much done when travelling but family comes first!
