Tuesday To Do

This link party is open to all, it’s not just for quilters.
If you use fiber of any kind, please link up your weekly To-Do list!

Last Week:

  1. Afghan knitting, the yarn came! /
  2. Knit on Shawl while traveling /
  3. Sew the backing for Autumn Reign X
  4. Prep fabric for a baby quilt /
  5. Choose baby sweater pattern /
  6. Extra: April Table Scraps Paper Moon √
  7. Extra: UFO #4 Wash and Rinse /
  8. WOOFA: Coco Puffs /

I started the last afghan square during the Gonzaga/UCLA game, it’s an easy pattern. I knit on the shawl while traveling home on Thursday, discovered I missed half a repeat, not sure how that happened, but left it a mistake. No one will ever know, I swear! No back for Autumn Reign. Baby quilt prep was begun!! Gramps is the winner for the baby sweater, I’ve made it enough times I can do it in my sleep! And I got lots of piecing and quilting done!!

This Week:

  1. Baby Brook’s quilt
  2. Knit/seam Afghan
  3. Knit on Shawl
  4. Quilt something

I have all the animal blocks cut out for the baby quilt, now I need to start piecing the sashing squares. Below is the plan for the flimsy. Imagine cute animals in the blank blocks. LOL. Knit on the last afghan square and then seam the 6 blocks into the blanket. Continue knitting on the shawl, I am 4 repeats from starting the short rows of the body. I probably will throw a charity top on Gigi and do a panto to get it done quickly. But not until the baby quilt is pieced.

So, that’s my list, how about yours? Small, large, over ambitious, or underachiever?

  1. You’ve got a lot done just since Sunday! Is the lower right photo the shawl? It is really pretty.

    You might look at your linky party. It says it doesn’t open until noon Tuesday, or thereabouts.

  2. Your afghan is so pretty, Chris, Now I noticed that you made each square with a new stitch, as a sampler.. I love its color too. All the quilts are beautiful. You sure had a produtive week. Good lucky with this week goals. Happy stitching/quilting.

  3. Hi Chris! You’ve made great progress on your shawl! That sure is a lovely colored yarn for it! I’m thrilled to see you working on the afghan – woohoo! The sashing for the animal quilt looks like fun. Great job on progressing your list along – good luck with this week’s list. Thanks for the linky party! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. I’m hoping to cut out all of the “house parts” for my Humble Homes quilt now that I have all the fusible ironed on. And now that the rows are all constructed for Roll On (baby quilt), I hope to get the flimsy finished by the weekend. Those are really the only 2 things on my priority list for this week as I have to work a couple of the days.

  6. You have magical hands! Your knitting work is lovely! I love that afghan! That quilt is going to be lovely. Thank you so much for hosting To Do Tuesday!

  7. You’ve got a good list going there! I am working on my sweater, a cowl and a shawl. I’m just going to work on each one a bit through the week and see what gets done – the sweater and shawl will definitely take a while, but the cowl might get done this week. Not definitely, but maybe!

    1. I will get to devote all my time to knitting on Saturday when we head south for a friend’s Bday party. Then the drive back on Sunday will be another opportunity to get the shawl and Afghan progressed. Enjoy your visiting! > >

  8. Hello Chris. I created my post but forgot to link up. I was happy to see that your linky was still open.
    I love the quilt in the center photo – gorgeous! Those squares coming in from the four corners really draws your eyes to the centrer.
