Make-A-List Monday - Gearing Up For H2H!

Hi, all!

Monday has rolled around again - hard to believe we're two and a half weeks into January already!  Looks like we're going to actually get some winter weather this week, (maybe even snow!) so it will start feeling more like winter finally.  It doesn't take much to shut down middle Tennessee but it also doesn't come around very often, so we'll see what actually comes and go from there!  Whatever the weather, though, it's going to be a good week to sew!

First, though, let's see what happened with last week's list...

1.  Make a back for the Ombre Circles quilt.
2.  Prepare the Ombre Circles quilt for domestic machine quilting.
Done!  I actually managed to finish this quilt completely, and blogged about it last Friday.  You can read more about it by clicking here...

3.  Quilt two more men's twin-sized tops for the Compassionate Hands ministry.
Done!  Not just quilted, but completely finished and delivered.  These two quilts are really gorgeous!  The first top was donated to us, and the second one was pieced by Deb R. from our ministry group.  She's the queen of men's quilts - puts great tops together for men all the time!

4.  Start organizing for Hands2Help!
Started!  I spent some time this weekend putting together the calendar and sending out some e-mails, AND working on this year's quilt along!  You can read more about it by clicking here...


5.  Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
Done!  We gave away three quilts this week...

This quilt went to a young woman who was just diagnosed with breast cancer...

....this one went to a woman whose cancer has returned...

...and this one went to a young woman who suffered a miscarriage.

I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at last week's list and realized that I had managed to get it all done!  I hope this week's goes as well - let's see what's up to do next...

1.  Work on a special secret quilt project.

2.  Finish at least one of the Nifty Nines quilt along quilt tops.

3.  Start piecing blocks for three My Small World quilts (these will become the annual quilts for the grandkids this year!)

4.  Contacting possible sponsors for Hands2Help. (If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, drop me an email at salliesue57 (at) gmail (dot) com!)

5.  Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.

Once again, it doesn't look like a very long list, but it's a lot of big projects!  It's certainly enough to keep me busy and out of trouble... unless we get snowed in!  But there's plenty of fabric on hand if that happens - I won't run out, that's for sure!

And now the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?




  1. coming! YEAH!! TIme sure does seem to fly sometimes. :)

  2. We got ice today and are supposed to get snow tomorrow.
