To Do Tuesday June 6

Welome to To Do Tuesday June 6!

Christine at Stitch ALL The Things hosts To Do Tuesday.  TDT is a great weekly motivator to finish projects and (for me) to keep my To Do List manageable.

My list from May 30:

1.  Finish Gift Sewing Project
2.  Sew Opera House Costumes

Phew!  What a crazy week and weekend!  Are you ready for a book?

Tuesday’s softball game did not end the way we all wanted, and Harley’s final high school season came to a heartbreaking end after three extra innings on the very last play.  The girls had an amazing season, and they persevered and overcame many obstacles!  I am so very proud of my girl and the great season she had!

Unfortunately the cold I caught over the weekend ended up being much more – strep throat, sinus infection, bronchitis, and double ear infection, but I am on the mend and doing well now.  I spent most of the week curled up on the couch while Harley worked on graduation projects.  We held Harley’s graduation party held Friday afternoon as a joint party with her friend, Karley, and then graduation was held that evening.  I have said so many times how proud I am of Harley, but words truly cannot express how proud I am.

It feels surreal that this is the same girl, and she is now an adult spreading her wings.  <3


Enough reminiscing, I suppose, and on to this week’s lists!

I discovered I only had a couple dresses, and they didn’t fit anymore (damn!) when I started getting ready for graduation.  I made this Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic to wear to graduation.  It is made out of gorgeous crinkle rayon from So Sew English.  I hate wearing dresses, and I NEVER do. I felt comfortable and feminine, and I received some very sweet compliments. It is perfect, and I love it!


1.  Finish Gift Sewing Project

DONE!!!  The gift won’t be opened until late tonight or tomorrow, so I can’t post pictures yet.  I’m just thrilled to finally take this off my list!

2.  Sew Opera House Costumes

The Opera House does not need my help after all, so I am taking this item off my list!  Woots!


I am adding a few new items to my list this week, but they should be pretty easy to complete (knock on wood).  I will be posting the pictures of the gift sewing project since it has been in the works for so long.  For the first time, I am participating in a blog tour, and I am participating in two!  The first is the Sew Americana Blog Tour that will be publishing the week prior to the Fourth of July, and the second is a Christmas in July Blog Tour that publishes at the end of July.  I am excited for both projects, and I cannot wait to get started.

While our oldest daughter was here for Harley’s graduation, she wore one of the Maggie dresses I made for Harley and loved it.  Emma asked me to make her some for work, so I am adding those to my list, but I am not sure how many I’ll end up making her.  They’re a quick enough sew I should be able to get several finished.  The final project on my list is for both Todd & I, and it is all the house projects we are working on.

1.  Take Pictures & Post Gift Sewing Project
2.  Sew Americana Blog Tour
3. Christmas in July Blog Tour
4. Dresses for Emma
5. House Projects:  painting house, building shed, re-seeding grass, laying gravel base for deck, and re-graveling the driveway.

Do you have any projects you are working on this week?

    1. Yes, I did get hit hard, but luckily I got some great antibiotics that worked quickly! Thank you very much!

  2. Yikes! I am so sorry for the illness. I hope you are feeling better now! Congratulations to the graduate! Your dress is fantastic, and I’m glad you felt great wearing it… that is always my problem with dresses. I just don’t feel very comfortable. So yay for a successful dress!

    1. Definitely yay for a successful dress – I was amazed at how nice it felt to wear it. Thank you!

  3. Hi Amy,
    I hope you are feeling much better now – those drugs are amazing aren’t they?!! Congrats to your daughter and you – you obviously did a fabulous job. {{Hugs}} Your dress is very pretty, and you look great in it. I never wear dresses any more – and I don’t miss them either. Looking forward to your update next week. ~smile~

  4. Oh man, fighting those symptoms is no fun. Glad everything came together for the graduation party and ceremony. Congrats again! And you look amazing in your dress! How fun to reminisce and cheer your daughter on into her next stage of life!
