To-Do-Tuesday: November 16, 2021


To day is "To-Do-Tuesday" and we list our goals and share them at our hostess' website, Texas Quilt Gal!  Hit here for some inspiration!

I'm still caring for my Mom.  These days I do split shifts.  I'm up at her house at daybreak to do the morning shift and return every evening to do the bedtime routine.  My brother covers the afternoon shift.

Surprisingly, I got some sewing done last week.  I often sew when I'm stressed.  I got one set of blocks finished for one of the twin's baby quilts.  I also cut the fabric for the next set and will be able to assemble that soon.  

One of the surprise projects was this holiday gift which I'm making for two of the kids in my neighborhood.  We've always called them Danish Ribbons.  These are like an advent calendar.  In case you have young ones in your family and might need a surprise gift==I wrote about these extensively today on my Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog here.

So here is my big ol' to-do list which I'm keeping realistic and short:

1. Finish binding the Danish Ribbons.

Wishing you a safe and happy day!

I love this idea and the timing is perfect as I'm preparing to make my four grandchildren their annual Christmas gifts! It does look really easy to make!
Just a quick question on how you attach the ribbons? How long are they? Thank you so much for sharing!

Cool idea!
I liked the poem with the instructions.

Oh my goodness I just looked back on your blog and found the post about your Mom. What a trying time for her and you and your family. I had to laugh at the "low voice" you used with the physician! Several years ago I had blockage from scarring from a previous surgery and my intestines were blocked. I know the misery from that, and I am so glad you were able to get her the help she needed. I pray she recovers well for her next surgery.
I love the little ribbon project! I've saved your link to have a look at it after Thanksgiving.
Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday!
