Tuesday's To-Do-List: January 11, 2022

 Woke-up to a wonderful morning of 12 degrees; it feels like a good sewing day!


Time to unfurl the not-so-big list of things I would like to accomplish this week!  Please visit Linda at Texas Quilt Gal for more inspiration and bloggers' projects!sd

Last week's goals:

Finish sashing the twins' baby quilt:  Done!  I don't have a photo but they are finished!

Work on January embroidery block:  A little more done.  I'm learning to take advil and rub my hands with biofreeze right after I hand sew.  It works!

Cut up 19th century reproduction fabric for the new project:  Done!

This week's goals:

1. Continue to embroider the January block.

2. Cut fabric for the Romper Babies blocks I want to embroider this year.  

The romper babies were charming ads for patterns for children's clothes from the 1930s.  I've been cleaning up the ads as best I can so that I can make an embroidered quilt of the images.  Each time I get one done, I put the images on my Pennsylvania Piecemaker blog to share with anyone who might want these patterns.  Today's blog post (here) shares the latest Romper Baby and lists the other babies available so far.

3.  Whenever I'm really enjoying a project, I take it really slow.  I'm working on a snowball quilt for my 19th century fabrics and enjoying every second of it.  I'm hoping to get 2 lap quilts out of the fabrics I cut.

That's it folks!
Have a safe and happy day!

Good luck on your to-do's for the week and way to really enjoy those fun projects! Sometimes we get in such a hurry but, like a good book, it shouldn't be rushed!

Brrr! Definitely a good day for some sewing! Hope you got a lot done. The snowball block is really pretty!

I love that you are "enjoying every second" of your snowball blocks. Nothing better than that. The romper babies are going to be so cute!
