It is time once again for the To-Do Tuesday Weekly Progress Update and Link-up hosted by Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us. I got through my entire list last week and am motivated to do the same again this week!
To-do list for 8/4 - 8/10:
1. Dresden Stars--begin joining sections together ✔ done
The long center diagonal section was joined to one of the corner sections. The red diagonal stripe on the backing covers up the joining seam.
2. Orange Peels--hand applique at least four blocks ✔ done (plus one extra)
3. RSC Square Dance--make 8 purple/pink blocks ✔ done
4. Cleaning/organization--go through drawers under ironing board ✔ done
One of the top drawers holds CD's, but the rest all have quilting supplies. The other top drawer was crammed full of pens and pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc., plus a few drawing/drafting tools like compasses and protractors. Here's the collection spread out on the ironing board, then neatly arranged in the drawer after getting rid of some and relocating others.
The next drawer held an assortment of many types of pins, plus a few other things that didn't need to stay there. The pins have been sorted out, and I haven't yet figured out what will end up in the left side of this drawer. The only things there now are some sheets of tracing/transfer paper.
The bottom drawer has all sorts of threads, and these aren't even the ones I use regularly for piecing. There are heavy-weight threads, invisible, metallics, rayon, and some cotton threads that I keep in case I need a specific color. There are also some machine attachments in the back corner.
This is my ironing station after cleaning up. I even washed the fabric covering the ironing board. Someday I hope to convert this to a "Big Board" type top that can sit on the dresser as a larger ironing surface.
The goals for next week are mostly continuations of the last week.
To-do list for 8/11 - 8/17:
1. Dresden Stars--continue assembly
2. Orange Peel--applique 5 more blocks
3. RSC Square Dance--make 8 more purple/pink blocks
4. Cleaning/organization--I haven't decided what to do next, but I'll find something!
That should be plenty to keep me busy for the next week. I'll report on my progress and post a new set of goals next Tuesday. I'm linking up with other To-Do Tuesday lists at Home Sewn by Us .
