To Do Tuesday June 20

Welcome to To Do Tuesday June 20!


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 June 13:

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

Harley started her summer job last week, Reagan was busy with dress rehearsal week for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, and Terrance was busy all week at work, as well.  Todd and I had a pretty quiet week, and I was able to get quite a bit of stuff done.  I have been working really hard to get to a point where I am able to participate in sewing blog tours, and it has finally happened.  ALL. AT. ONCE.  Murphy’s Law, right?  At any rate, I am going to take the house projects off my list because they’re going to get done regardless, and they’re really not what this list is about to me.

1.  Leyla Jeyne Patterns Summer Collection Blog Tour

This blog tour is really exciting because Leyla Jeyne is releasing an entire collection of summer patterns – women’s and girls!  I am only making one item from the collection, but I am excited to see everyone’s creations!

2.  Sew Americana Blog Tour

Fabric and patterns are selected, and I have started tracing the patterns to cut and sew!

3.  Dress Up This Town Blog Tour

This tour is exciting because I get to make myself a “fancy” dress.  I am not a dress person at all, but after making my dress for Harley’s graduation, I’m beginning to wonder if it isn’t because my RTW dresses haven’t fit correctly.  Todd and I NEVER go anywhere that requires much more than nice jeans and a dress shirt, and I am thrilled because we are going to a wine-pairing dinner event that will require us to dress nice.  Our dinner is right before this blog tour, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect!  I am making another Patterns for Pirates Timeless Tunic, and I am using this gorgeous Rayon Challis.

5.  Christmas in July Blog Tour

I have the fabric set aside, and I know what I am making for this tour.  I will get started on it as soon as I finish the Sew Americana Tour items.

5.  Dresses for Emma

Emma has chosen the fabric she wants me to use, and I will get these cut out and sewn some time this week (crossing my fingers).


My to-do list for this week:

1.  Leyla Jeyne Patterns Summer Collection Blog Tour
2.  Sew Americana Blog Tour
3.  Dress Up This Town Blog Tour
4.  Christmas in July Blog Tour
5.  Dresses for Emma

What are you working on?
