It's To-Do-Tuesday! I've been busy but managed to put together a few blocks for Kairle Oaks Double Dip Quilt Sew Along. It's the only sewing project I'm really working on while caring for Scout and managing family responsibilities.

My only goals for the next week are to finish this top and cut fabric for Kairle Oaks' Sew Along. The Double Dip quilt has me jazzed and I may do two of these this year. For now, I'm going to cut the fabric. I have a lot of rust fabric in my stash (I'm not sure why I even bought this color--I think I ordered one color but it was the wrong number). Anyway, I'll use up the fabric for my first quilt. You can see Kairle's quilt here.

Brad and I got our first vaccine on Saturday! We drove an hour to the Poconos and was happy to do so. Everything went smoothly. It was a drive through vaccination site and we were done (including our 15 minute wait to see if we had a reaction) in 45 minutes. I loved the sign they had hung up:

It's To-Do-Tuesday and I've to little to show this week. Today I'm taking Jenny's quilt to Terri's--my machine quilter.
Last week's goals: Use up two charm packs for a baby quilt:
Blocks are finished! I wanted to donate some baby quilts for my friend who is collecting baby quilts for her church. Turns out I had some finished that I could give her. I still finished all my HST blocks but then didn't like the size or lack of color so I ordered coordinating fabric to put in alternating blocks. I'm thinking this would make a better picnic quilt.
The applique quilt: Still working on it. I thought I had this one all ready to go but now I'm back to the design board. I found more poodle fabric (gee, what a surprise) and want to finish more blocks up.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by scraps? Although I've been doing some scrap quilts, I couldn't fit all the scraps in the scrap drawer 😟 Over the weekend I found this free quilt pattern for "Floating Beads" at Jordan Fabrics and thought I would make one of these quilts to donate. I had a box of strips that wouldn't fit in the drawer. I got the scraps cut (and yippee all the scraps fit in the drawer now) and still have to cut the alternating white fabric.
It's a busy week because my husband is home and we always have projects we need to do while he is home. Not sure how much I'll get sewn but hopefully some progress!
Have a safe and happy day!

I took Scout to the Dog Park yesterday. I'm starting to take small walks with Scout but she needed more exercise. It was a good experience for her! Of course she first had to flirt with the young men that were there. She's such a hussy and loves men.
Lastly, I'm grateful that my husband and I are getting our first vaccines on Saturday! Arranging things took a bit of time. Yes it was a long wait on the phone. But I also had to call Brad's boss and get him released from his job in Missouri a day early so he can drive home to be here on time. It took some finagling and apparently I used my "mother voice" when I called Brad's boss.
