Tuesday To-Do

Last Week’s Goals:

  1. Guild meeting on Monday
  2. Quilt Flamingo
  3. Piece Prairie Point border
  4. Start Shoulder Showl test knit with new yarn!
  6. Hair Cut and knitting with friends in my home town
  7. Knit hat in a different color way. Winter’s Fern for the 5th time X


This Week’s Goals:

  1. Make Tote for a gift
  2. Finish Sunflowers
  3. Finish Showl
  4. Cast on Winter’s Fern #5
  5. Bus trip to Michigan
  6. Finish my Tote

#1 is already done! I am leaving with my guild today for a trip to Michigan to see the quilt show in Grand Rapids. It will be so much fun!!! I made this tote for my roomie, a lovely lady who is just so sweet. She likes blue, so I was thrilled when I found this home dec, on Monday afternoon! I raced home and sewed until it was done. I replaced the straps with just plain straps, just wasn’t in the mood.

I had also planned to make one for me, but by the time we got home Sunday I was too spent to do anything but knit and watch Skyfall with Hubster. He thought he was putting on Spectre, I couldn’t understand why he was watching Skyfall when it’s his least favorite. LOL!

So my tote will get done when I return home, and I might get some Pellon foam to use in place of fusible fleece. It just doesn’t have any oomph. I like my totes to have some shape and keep it. Also maybe use a heavier interfacing on the lining. The one I tried to use for the tote above was not interfacing. Ugh! I thought I was grabbing interfacing, but I had Pattern Ease. Ripped it out.

I leave you with a photo of the old dog, getting ready to celebrate 11 years old! He thought we was helping with the laundry. LOL

    I hope you have a great trip;)
    Myles helps exactly the same way. I really wish he could fold the laundry maybe then I wouldn’t be perpetually behind.

    Travel does cut into our list of sewing/quilting but knitting is good and portable! Enjoy!

    • chrisknits August 20, 2019 / 8:56 am

      Yes, knitting saves my sanity on long trips.

    Hi Chris! Have fun at the GR quilt show. We went to that last year and I took a FMQ class that got me started on my quilting journey. I’m 100% certain your roomie will LOVE the tote. And helpers with the laundry is always a good thing, no?! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • chrisknits August 20, 2019 / 2:07 pm

      Thanks! I bet you get “help” with the laundry too from the kidlets!

        P.S. I forgot to add a comment about Skyfall – and Spectre – we’re talking Bond, I assume?! James Bond. LOVE these two movies – I just watched Casino Royale again this past weekend. DH doesn’t like Skyfall? I think that’s the one that M dies? Anyway . . . just had to add two cents about JB. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Hi, this is my first linky-party and lo and behold I spy another Pink Flamingo project! Yours is great…mine’s a kit, but a Pink Flamingo is a Pink Flamingo, right?
    Have a fun trip.

    • chrisknits August 21, 2019 / 7:09 am

    Road trip! Fun! There will be lots of inspiration at the show for you! I’m heading in the opposite direction today to Indianapolis to visit my daughter and get a hair cut at the salon where she works. Happy travels to you!

    • chrisknits August 21, 2019 / 2:23 pm

      You come to Indy? You need to be in town during the 2nd Monday of the month for our Mudsocks Guild meeting! We are such a fun group.
