To-Do-Tuesday: December 15, 2020

Good morning!  It's To-Do-Tuesday and time to list my goals for the coming week.  This wonderful idea is hosted by Roseanne over at Home Sewn By Us and you can visit our bloggers for inspiration here.
My only goal last week was to finish my 16 patch blocks for my latest Christmas quilt.  Done!

I also started on the alternative blocks.  I have nearly all of them done except for 15 border blocks.  With the snow anticipated for this week, I'm hoping to not only finish those blocks but assemble the quilt as well.

I haven't even decorated for Christmas.  To be honest, after caring for my husband for 4 months, I'm exhausted and I'm really tired of the police shows he watches all day/every day.

The sewing room is now my escape as he is doing more things for himself.  I like the silence and I'm really looking forward to the peace that descends when we get a snow storm.  We are expecting 12-18 inches of snow Wednesday into Thursday.

I hope you are staying well and keeping safe!  Have a great day!

Oh to get that much snow would be heaven! Supposed to snow all afternoon and eve here so I'm excited to do some sewing and hanging out by the fire! Love your patches--fun fabrics.

Your blocks are so colorful...very pretty.
We are expecting 2-4 inches of snow here.
Stay warm and have a great day!

Hi Michele! I love all of those 16-patch block fabrics. I can’t remember what the alternate block looks like but it sounds like you’ll have a nice chance to work on them. I didn’t hear about snow this week - maybe it’s missing us (which I wouldn’t mind one bit). Twelve to eighteen inches!!! I wish I could pop over and decorate for you and leave some Christmas cheer and a good {{hug}}, too. Thanks so much for linking up today. I look forward to seeing that new quilt top all finished next week. ~smile~ Roseanne

I got a good laugh when you mentioned your husband watching police shows all day because I face the same delima, only it's cowboy shows. My house isn't big enough to get away from the noise because he is hard of hearing and cranks the tv all the way up. I dread the day he retires. I know that sounds awful of me but anyone who has hubby's like ours will understand. Make it a great sewing day.
