To-Do Tuesday 9/15/2020

It is very hard to believe that September is already half over, although we have been getting some lovely hints of fall in the weather. It is time once again for the To-Do Tuesday Weekly Progress Update and Link-up hosted by Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn By Us. I accomplished my three main goals last week and hope to have another good week ahead.

To-do list for 9/8 - 9/14
1. Dresden Stars quilt--photos and blog post                                done
2. Sewing room cleaning--finish going through quilting books        done
3. RSC Square Dance--make 8 red/orange blocks                         done
4. Bonus--Make a couple of new grocery bags                                 no

1. Dresden Stars quilt--photos have been taken, the blog post is written, and it will be shared on Thursday.

2. Sewing room cleaning--I finished sorting through all the quilting books and ended up with three boxes full of books to get rid of. Thank you so much to everyone who had suggestions for what to do with them. I contacted a friend who is a member of a large local guild, and she said they would be happy to take them off my hands. Some books will be added to their guild library, and the rest will go into their next book sale. They will also take magazines once I go through those. Yippee!! I had hoped to pass the books directly to other quilters, and it's going to work out exactly that way. I kept a handful of books for future blog giveaways too.

3. RSC Square Dance--I made 16 red/orange blocks, finishing all I needed for September. I showed them in Saturday's post.

4. Grocery bags--nothing done, except pulling out some possible fabrics.

To-do list for 9/15 - 9/21
1. Scrappy Bear Paw--make one red block for Rainbow Scrap Challenge
2. Dresden Stars--clean up leftover fabrics, etc.
3. Start a new hand-stitching project--I haven't had one since I finished the applique on my Orange Peels
4. Rolling 9-Patch--finish top (this is a project I was working on over the weekend)

5. Sewing room cleaning--??? I'm sure I'll find something to do!

That should be more than enough 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 .
