Welcome to To Do Tuesday – November 21

TDTuesday

 

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 November 7:

1.  Christmas Project Sewing
2.  Hyak Hoodie Sew-A-Long at Peek-A-Boo Patterns
3.  Fun Projects

Well, apparently I lost a week somewhere and forgot to post a TDT last week, so this post will cover the past two weeks.  Todd worked really hard over the past two weeks getting the inside of our new shed finished so we could start using it.  I am so proud of him!  The shed is completely wired, insulated, and paneled, and it is ready to use!  We are calling it “done for Winter”.  We can’t say it’s completely done because it still needs siding, paint, and steps.  At any rate, it’s a huge weight off his shoulders, and hopefully he can relax and rest over the winter.  This is a happy guy celebrating being done!

 

We are going to have a busy Thanksgiving week.  Harley has to work and go to school, and doesn’t have enough time to come home for the holiday, so Todd, Reagan, and I are heading to Corvallis to celebrate with her!  She’s excited because we’ll be taking Pip, who is definitely her “baby”, and I am sure Pip will wet herself when she sees Harley again!

 

1.  Christmas Project Sewing

My list of Christmas Sewing projects is not large, and it won’t take me very long to get through, especially once they are all cut out.  I am concentrating on getting these done sooner rather than later. 😉  However, good intentions . . .

2.  Hyak Hoodie Sew-A-Long at Peek-A-Boo Patterns

Unfortunately, I got busy with other projects, and I wasn’t able to participate in the Hyak Hoodie Sew-A-Long at Peek-A-Boo Patterns, so I’m taking it off my list.  I do plan on making myself another hoodie, though since the first one is so comfortable.

 

3.  Fun Projects

I don’t know exactly what I mean by fun projects other than, “what I want to make in fabric I want to use.” 😉  Don’t get me wrong, I love doing all the pattern testing, but I have some pieces of fabric that I refuse to use for testing because I love it so much.  I am working on using those fabrics through the rest of the year.  As an example, I made this Patterns for Pirates Favorite Tee out of Teal Stretch Velvet from Mily Mae Fabrics just because I wanted to.  It makes a perfect “casual fancy top” or “fancy casual top”.  As a t-shirt and jeans wearing girl, it is a perfect way for me to “jazz it up”!

 

In addition to these projects, I am also doing some testing for both Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates for their annual holiday projects.  I am adding them to my to-do list for next week.  Oh, and so far, everything I’ve made has been awesome!  I can’t wait to share them!

  1. Hi, Amy! I’m just getting around to reading last week’s blog link ups, but your post isn’t showing up… Just the comment form. The one thing I can comment on is that I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!

    1. I don’t know what was wrong, but I seem to have fixed the error now. Thank you, though. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

      1. I think it was likely just my computer. I went to another blog today and couldn’t see the pictures and now my own blog is looking wonky. It’s probably my browser. I’m sorry if I worried you for no reason!

        1. Not at all! I actually couldn’t see them, either. After some research, I removed a plugin, and that fixed the issue. 😀

Thank you for commenting, I love hearing from my readers!
