I made fairly good progress on my list from last week. These were the tasks I was hoping to work on last week:
1. Cut out additional papers for the Japanese Poppies EPP (English paper piecing) project. ✔︎
2. Work on the EPP project whenever we're not at home. ✔︎
I actually spent a few hours on this project when we went to a friend's house for a gaming day.
3. Continue work on the Unbeweavable Lap Quilt. ✔︎I blogged about it here.
4. Make backing for the Finger Lakes Log Cabin Flimsy.
I cut out the pieces, but I haven't sewn them together yet. My main goal was to make sure I had enough fabric and I did.
5. Work on Halloween Monster Wreath from my WOOFA list (or ditch the project). ❌
I also worked on tidying up my sewing room. I am trying to finish up projects that are lying around, so with that goal in mind, my list for next week:
- Work on the EPP project whenever we're not at home.
- Make a purse clutch that fits in my craft tote.
- Work on the Halloween Monster Wreath from my WOOFA list (or ditch the project).
- Make pillowcases to match the Harvest Quilt I finished last year.
- Make pillowcases for the Snake River log cabin quilt.
- Make pillowcases for the Finger Lakes log cabin quilt.
- Finish making cut files in the Cricut Design Space.
- Finalize the fabric selections and prep the fabric for the cutting mats.
- Cut out the Sea Swept quilt project.
Since we're already halfway through August, I'm also trying to focus on tasks from my 2021 WOOFA list. I definitely won't get everything finished by the end of the year, but I may as well try and get as much done as I can. I've decided to try and work on the Sea Swept quilt next; it's been on my WOOFA list for two years now. Despite being frustrated with my fabric, I'll just choose the best fabrics that I have. Or maybe I'll mix some of them up and make it a bit more scrappy. I have already spent way too much money buying fabric online for this project.
Thanks to ChrisKnits for hosting the Tuesday ToDo linkup.
Well done with your list! I love Unbeweavable Lap Quilt, beautiful! And I love Sea Swept too, very pretty pattern. It's going to be a fabulous quilt.ReplyDelete
I hope so. I've been playing with this pattern for so long, I've gotten a little discouraged by it. If it hadn't been on my WOOFA list for two years, I'd probably just ditch it.Delete
Beautiful projects! I'm right there with ya on the "too much online fabric purchases"! Oy!ReplyDelete
I don't dare add up how many yards I bought during the pandemic. It would probably be in the 100s. Ouch.Delete
Wowza! Every time I read your blog, I am amazed! And feel slightly inadequate! Your quilts are awesome!ReplyDelete
So many beautiful patterns, so little time. LOLDelete

Unbeweavable is really striking, and I absolutely love Sea Swept!ReplyDelete
Thanks Mary. They are very pretty patterns; that's why they originally caught my eye.Delete
I love your Unbeweavable quilt! I caught Mayeye at the to do Tuesday link up! You have been so productive! I can see how participating in the WOOFA is a great idea! Take good care and thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I get a lot more sewing done since I started making weekly lists so it has helped me quite a bit. And, I suppose, being stuck at home so much.Delete
