Make-a-List Monday - Where Does The Time Go???


Hi, all!

I know it's hard to believe, but today marks two months until Christmas!  Where oh where has this year gone?  Time flies when you're having fun, but this is ridiculous. Soon it will be time to start decorating the house and celebrating the season - and honestly I can't wait!  Fingers crossed that the vaccine gets approved for my two youngest grandchildren, then we can breathe a sigh of relief and go back to normal extended family gatherings without worry.  I'm so looking forward to that!

In the meantime, though, there's still my weekly to-do list!  Here's a look at how last week's list went....

1.  Join the two halves of the summer quilt.
2.  Complete the quilting and bind.
Done!!!!   I am so excited to have this quilt on my bed now, and a little time to enjoy it before it's time to put the Christmas quilt back on...

3. Make at least six more Endless Summer blocks.
Done!  Six days ago I laid out the blocks I had made on the design wall, and I had 35 of the 64 I need.  Today when I quit sewing I had 52 - so I made 17 this week!  And best of all, I only need 12 more!

4.  Quilt a ministry quilt.
Done!  This was a WIP from my own stash, originally intended to be a king size quilt for my bed, but when I got it to the two-halves stage, I realized I really didn't like it for myself.  So I turned it into three lap size quilt tops, and this is one of those tops all finished!

5.  Get ready for a yard sale.
Plans were changed, and I decided not to do a yard sale.  So this one went by the way!  It certainly made for a nice restful weekend...

I also started a new project (of course!) which I'll be sharing more about on Wednesday!

So a very good week!  It feels so good to be getting so many of my WIPs finished, and I'm enjoying "playing" again in my studio.  Here's what I'll be working on this week....

1.  Make the last of the Endless Summer blocks.

2.  Assemble the Endless Summer quilt top.

3.  Quilt the spool quilt.

4.  Quilt a ministry quilt.

5.  Start working on the kaleidoscope quilt WIP.

6.  Work on the new scrappy project and post about it on Wednesday.

A good list for the week!  Hopefully I can get it all done, but I have multiple "nana" duties and a haircut and color too, so fingers crossed!  

And now I have only one question - - - what are YOU working on this week??




  1. Wonderful to see your very own quilt on your bed and know it is a keeper. And from one, now there are three quilts, what a great way to divide it up. .

  2. I am always amazed at what you accomplish in a week! You make so many beautiful quilts - always fun to see what's happening in your quilt studio!

  3. I really like the Endless Summer blocks; the colors and pattern are wonderful!
