To-Do Tuesday 12-19-17 | Happy Holidaze

Hello, friends and Happy Tuesday! I have been busy working on the Surf Song quilt and have not done much else but focus on that since last week. I had to take a few hours on Saturday to write my menu and grocery lists for Christmas and the Mister has gone shopping for us to purchase all of the needed items so I could continue working. I also had to make some more of the Christmas Cookie Bark recipe as everyone here gobbled up the small amount I had left after sending off packages to family members the week prior. Thankfully it’s a VERY easy recipe to whip up!

I’m a little over 75% of the way done assembling the Surf Song quilt top. It will not be finished by Christmas. I was hoping to get at least the top done so I could wrap that as a gift, but I may be able to even get it quilted. I won’t have the binding on it by Christmas, but at least now I know it will be put together enough to wrap as a present for Josh.

This is going to be my last To-Do Tuesday post for 2017. I’ve decided that I won’t be posting next week, as I will have all of my kids here for Christmas and will be very focused on them. Since I normally write posts on Monday evenings, I definitely won’t have time for that on Christmas day. My next link up post will be January 2nd. So I will take the opportunity now to wish you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!

This week’s To-Do list:

  • Work on Surf Song quilt as much as I can
  • Celebrate Christmas!

Now it’s your turn! Write up your post and link up using the InLinkz linky below.

  1. Hi Christine,
    WOWEE! You got SO far this week! You have to be thrilled. I am 100% sure that Josh will love it. Oh, the movement in that fabric – you can almost feel the surf coming in and going out. Fabulous! I can certainly understand why there will be no link up next week. Enjoy the time with your family and friends. {{Hugs}} Merry Christmas! I look forward to 2018 and all the quilting fun we will have. ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. I’m late, but Merry Christmas! And Happy New Year! Can’t believe tomorrow is New Year’s Eve! How did Josh like his bargello quilt? It looks amazing! Was he surprised? I hope you are both very pleased with it!


    1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family as well! Josh loved the quilt! It wasn’t bound, but he didn’t mind… He was thrilled to know he had a quilt and he absolutely loved the design. He said he was hoping I was making a quilt for him (since I locked him out of the hobby room for two weeks!), so that part wasn’t as much of a surprise as the design was. He’s out of town at the moment, so I have to put the binding on it tomorrow and get it hand sewn down by Friday night!
