To-Do Tuesday 2/16/21

Happy To-Do Tuesday once again.  It's time to look back at my to-do list from last week, see how I did on accomplishing my goals, then post a new list for the week ahead. Starting this week, the link-up party is moving to Chris Knits. Many thanks to Roseanne and Sue at Home Sewn by Us for hosting us over the last year and a half!

My lengthy list of goals for last week turned out to be more than I could handle. I got bogged down in decision making on the Stay at Home Round Robin, and that pushed almost everything else to the weekend. I managed to get through six of my seven goals for the week.

To-Do List for 2/9 - 2/15:
1. Bowties 365--make one bowtie block every day   ✔done
Nine Bowtie blocks were made last week

2. Grassy Creek mystery--add borders     ✔done
The Grassy Creek quilt top is complete, but our rainy weather has kept me from getting any photos of it yet.

3. Stay-at-Home Round Robin (SAHRR)--add next round (checkerboard)  ✔done  
This goal is the one that slowed me down last week. You can see my progress in yesterday's post.

4. Sewcialites QAL--make block #19   ✔done
Another cute little 6" block.

5. Scrap Magnet--make 2 yellow   ✔done
I love these blocks!

6. Sister's Choice (OMG)--quilt 3 border sections  not done
I never got around to making the switch over to machine quilting.

7. Super Bowl Mystery--finish making blocks   ✔done
It may have been last on the list, but it was the first project I worked on, mostly because all the pieces were cut and sitting by the machine.

I'm cutting down the list a bit for the week ahead, although I do have a couple of alternate choices if I finish this list quickly.

To-Do List for 2/16 - 2/22:
1. Bowties 365--make one bowtie block every day    
2. Grassy Creek mystery--photos and blog post
3. Stay-at-Home Round Robin (SAHRR)--add next round (wonky stars)              
4. Sewcialites QAL--make block #20   
5. Sew Colorful Stars--make 1 yellow block

If I get through all of that and am feeling inspired, I will try to do some machine quilting, either the Sister's Choice quilt or starting to quilt the Super Bowl mystery blocks.

That should all 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 Chris Knits.
