Busy week

Yes, I’ve had a busy week. Since Covid started, my calendar has been pretty blank. A couple of weekly Zoom things, daily walks and not much else, you tend to get use to it! Then BAM … all of a sudden, I had 2 dentist appointments (cleaning and fillings), a blood work appointment, a doctor’s appointment, a short guild Zoom meeting, a family Zoom quilting day, as well as the usual 3 weekly Zooms … Oh me, oh my … I felt almost overwhelmed. And to think, I used to have all those appointments, work full time and still managed to get a lot of quilting done! Sigh … Enough of my week … back to what’s important to me: Quilting!

Design Wall


Scrappy 4 patches: On point was the final decision on making this little quilt. I know it looks like a mess at the moment! I have some of the setting triangles sewn on … some are pinned and one row ready to be sewn together. I got most of this done at the family Zoom quilting day!


All the secrets … Secret #1 & #2 are done … #3 is almost ready … Unfortunately they need hanging sleeves … and I’m sewing those on my hand. ULK … I really dislike hand sewing … it literally hurts my fingers.

I’m linking up to Roseanne & Sue’s “TO DO” Tuesday. Their blog is “Home Sewn by Us.”

Last week’s list:

  1. IB November: Quilt and Bind not done
  2. Work on Secret projects: Finish #2 √   done
  3. Work on UFO (Scrappy 4 patches) √   done
  4. Tidy & clean studio for 30 minutes. √   done 

This week’s list:

  1. IB November: Quilt and Bind
  2. Work on Secret projects: Finish #3
  3. Work on UFO (Scrappy 4 patches) (to flimsy stage)
  4. Tidy & clean studio for 30 minutes.

No UFOs finished. One Start in 2020 finished.

Even though all my UFOs are NOT listed here, there is definitely enough to have a PHD in 2021 program go!

  1. The engagement calendar has been pretty lean and it’s been pretty easy to get used to that. Hopefully you’ve got the “have to do” appointments behind you and now you can relax into your normal stitching routine. The on point setting really works with the scrappy 9 patches. I am happy to hear there will be a PHD in 2021. I can definitely use the motivation! Happy stitching this week.


  2. Another option for hanging sleeves (if it isn’t for a judged show) is to fuse it on.

    Didn’t it feel weird going to the dentist and sitting there unmasked with your mouth open? I had a cleaning in June or July and it just felt strange.

    • Hi Pam,
      That is perfectly OK. Often our time does not equal our expectations! I always figure I’ll get something done in no time at all … and it always takes MUCH longer!!
      Being ready for 2021 is a great goal!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
