To-Do Tuesday 3-12-19 | A New Start and Bag Prep

Hello, and Happy Tuesday, friends! The weather here in Arizona has been amazing lately, but turned a bit cloudy and rainy today. We really enjoyed the 80 degree weather for a few days!

Stitch ALL The Things | Bag Prep

Last week was one that ended up being busy with quite a bit of personal issues, so I’m trying to be extra productive this week. I cut out 11 bags to sew and have them almost all interfaced. I just have to sew the glitter vinyl strips to the bottom of the main panels and then fuse some Pellon Thermolam Plus fusible fleece to them. I hope to get that done by early afternoon on Tuesday, because I have an appointment that will take up most of the later afternoon. Sewing them into bags will begin on Wednesday!

I had a new cross stitching start on Sunday. This is a chart I have had for a while, Flowers of the Holy Night by Glendon Place. I’ve been anxious to start it, along with a friend, for almost a year! She ordered a new Q-Snap to use for stitching this and just received it last week. We set Sunday as our start date and got to work! The flosses are Dinky Dye Silks and they are just dreamy to stitch with. The colors are amazing! I’ll be stitching on this one for the rest of this week, and then starting a one-week rotation for my current WIPs.

This week’s To-Do list:

  • Sew bags
  • Stitching WIP: Flowers of The Holy Night

  1. I managed to get one quilt completely finished and working on several others — love your cross stitch. Now I need to concentrate on the next round of a medallion quilt and decide what I want to do next on it


  2. Good Morning Christine! Your new cross stitch project is lovely – those colors are so rich. It will be gorgeous when it is complete. Good luck with those bags today! ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Hi, Roseanne! Thank you so much! I have so many big projects that I want to do and I just keep starting them. I need to work on finishing them too! LOL!! I did accomplish my goal today and had time to spare to catch up on my blog reading and comment. And, I’m actually going to have time for lunch before I run off. YAY!! (That’s a good day, right there!)


  3. Hi Christine, I just received my order for embroidery supplies for a new project. I have to travel more for my job and thought it would be something to do while at the hotel. Your holiday pattern is great. I can’t wait to see the progress.


    1. Oh, how fun! I hope you enjoy having that with you! I always have a project with me whenever we go anywhere! I hope you’ll show what you’re working on as you make progress!


    1. Only the teal color way this week (I forgot the official color name), but I’m sooo happy to cut into that fabric! AND, it just reminded me that I forgot to cut your squares up! I will get to them by the weekend. I’m so sorry!


    1. I tend to gravitate towards doing it that way, for some reason. But it’s less than half of the amount I used to cut out at once, so that’s a very good thing!


  4. Your bag fabrics and your cross stitch project all look so delightful! I hope the “personal issues” are more distracting nuisance type stuff and nothing serious. Happy stitching!
