TDTuesday

Welcome to To Do Tuesday October 25 hosted by Christine over at Stitch All the Things.

This is what my To Do Tuesday from October 18 looked like:

1.  August TSNEM – Bodice Sloper (remeasure and adjust pattern accordingly)
2.  September TSNEM – Hat and Mask making
3.  October TSNEM – Hand Piecing & Quilting
4.  Patterns 4 Pirates Slim Fit Raglans (coral, floral, and geometric)

Woo hoo for Fall!  I didn’t realize just how much I was missing having free time until this past week.  In the past week, I have had time to sew, watch a playoff volleyball game, relax at home, and take off for a girls’ weekend scrapbook retreat.  Sunday we did a thorough cleaning of our house from top to bottom, and that feels GREAT!

1-2.  August TSNEM – Bodice Sloper & September TSNEM – Hat and Mask Making

I decided to set these two projects aside and concentrate on October’s TNSEM project.  This allowed two things to happen:  1. I was able to relax about having unfinished projects.  2. I put my full concentration towards October’s project.  Now that I have October done and out of the way, I feel much better about concentrating on these.

 3.  October TSNEM – Hand Piecing & Quilting

YAY for finishing a TSNEM Project!  I used this group of posts from Erin at Why Not Sew?  and followed her tutorials to complete Hand Piecing & Quilting – October’s TSNEM Project

I did not mind this project, but I highly doubt hand-piecing will become part of my regular sewing agenda.

4.  Patterns 4 Pirates Slim Fit Raglans (coral, floral, and geometric)

I managed to get these patterns printed and taped together, but that’s all.

While away at the scrapbook retreat, I was able to complete two events worth of LARP pictures.  I also dismantled an old, unwanted album and recycled the pieces to be used in the future.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get any work done on the girls’ high school albums but mostly because I need to print more pictures.

The best part about To Do Tuesday October 25 is that my list for this week is shorter, and I am not adding anything new to it.  I am concentrating on these three things this week.

1.  August TSNEM – Bodice Sloper (remeasure and adjust pattern accordingly)
2.  September TSNEM – Hat and Mask making
3.  Patterns 4 Pirates Slim Fit Raglans (coral, floral, and geometric)

What are you working on this week?

  1. Yay for a finish! I super love it because it’s a churn dash block. Love the hand quilting too! I am looking forward to your review of the slim fit raglan. I looked at her patterns last week and I really liked the look of the slim fit raglan, but also liked the regular raglan top as well. I wanted to purchase one to try and make a shirt, but decided to wait for your review. Love those short list sewing weeks!

    1. I am excited to get them made, too! I love finding a pattern that I can make over and over and not have the “exact same shirt” just by making little changes here and there. I will definitely let you know how it goes.

  2. That is a great finish, & a brave one for doing it all by hand! I’m not a hand piecer, altho I have tried English Paper Piecing. But I do like some hand quilting. It takes time, and I’m usually in the get’r done mode these days.

    1. Thank you! I do enjoy English Paper Piecing, especially since it’s something I can take and work on during my daughter’s athletic events.
