Tuesday ToDo #22

Not a great week in my sewing room since I spent most of my free time working on sifting in the basement. I am trying to clear out half the family room so I can make room for my new Handiquilter long arm machine. That seems like rather a higher priority than the items on my list.

1.    Work on the EPP project whenever we're not at home. ✔︎

2.    Make a purse clutch that fits in my craft tote.

    Started, but not finished. I have several more hours of work left on it. 

3.    Work on the Halloween Monster Wreath from my WOOFA list (or ditch the project). ❌

4.    Make pillowcases to match the Harvest Quilt I finished last year. ❌

5.    Make pillowcases for the Snake River log cabin quilt. ❌

6.    Make pillowcases for the Finger Lakes log cabin quilt. ❌

7.    Finish making cut files in the Cricut Design Space. ✔︎

8.    Finalize the fabric selections and prep the fabric for the cutting mats. ❌

9.    Cut out the Sea Swept quilt project. ❌

I'm not sure how much time I'll spend sewing this coming week, but I will keep all these projects on the list until I have time to work on them. I may need to take a little break from the sewing blog (again) while I focus my efforts on downsizing and setting up a quilting area down in the basement.

Thanks to ChrisKnits for hosting the Weekly ToDo link party.


  1. That's an exciting thing to be looking forward to! Hope you have plenty of time for your preparations, but don't have to wait too long for the long arm to arrive.

  2. OOH, you're going to love your new HandiQuilter machine, and making room for it is a way bigger priority than anything else on the list! When is it coming, do you know yet? Which model did you choose? I took long arm workshops in the HandiQuilter classroom at Paducah Quilt Week a couple years ago and loved their machines. So happy for you!

  3. Looks like a productive enough week to me. Certainly making room for the LA is imperative!

  4. Hi,
    Sometimes "Stuff" gets in the way of quilting...but what a great thing to "get in the way". A new quilting machine, Awesome! Have a great day!

  5. I'm so excited for you and your new HQ! Hey it takes time to get things situated for a new longarm - I'm still moving stuff around! Your clutch is looking very pretty.

  6. That’s what I say about items on a to-do list! Just keep moving them forward, because “life happens”! Your item regarding pillow cases for quilts gave me the idea to do one for the stitched baby quilt. I will be put away til that baby comes. Maybe a year or more! It will be safe! Thanks for the idea!
