To-Do Tuesday

Sew Much Accomplished! | To Do Tuesday: 5-6-2014

To Do Tuesday button

All of my hard work and [mostly] ignoring social media has paid off!  I finished Mister’s anniversary needlework last night… which was one day before my deadline!  I actually finished quilting the secret quilt and sewed the binding onto the front.  Now I am trying to find some uninterrupted time to hand sew the binding to the back.  I expect to have it done no later than Friday.  Then I can wash it, take pictures and wrap it up a whole week earlier than it’s due.  That’s, like, MAJOR progress on getting a present done before a deadline for me.

I have exactly 17 days left to be prepped for summer.  So this week I’ll also be working on my last two sewing deadlines: the May and June Bee blocks.  I already have fabrics picked out, so I just need to starch/iron, cut & sew them up. After those are finished, the rest of my work centers around a very late spring cleaning and helping Mister with any remaining auto work that needs to be completed.

Hopefully now that I have my evening needlework project completed, I can spend a little time catching up on my blog reading! Hoping you’ve all been well!

  • Finish binding secret quilt. Wash, dry and take pictures Done 5/8

    1. I sort of end up forcing myself to get everything done at the last minute. I mean, why would one actually want plan ahead and reduce stress when they can go 100 mph a few weeks before hand?!
