October 19, 2021 To-Do Tuesday

I’ve not posted on To-Do-Tuesday since April. When I recently went looking for the host, ChrisKnits, I discovered there is now a new host. I’m not sure when the switch happened, but I’m glad to find Linda of Texas Quilt Gal hosting TDT. Thanks Linda!

This week both of the quilting groups I belong to meet. One today, and one on Thursday. That means figuring what to take along to work on. The Tuesday group only meets for about 4 hours with a lunch break. I’m taking along a little hand stitched piece to finish up.

The flowers are a design by Jennifer of elefantz.com. I changed the bottom, and am not happy with it, (sorry Jennifer, should have stuck with your design!) so I’ll be changing that out again. I’m rather new to embroidery, got to be patient with myself!

I’m also taking along Sweet As Honey wool kit by Primitive Gatherings. I have even less experience with wool appliqué, so this might be an interesting week! Here’s to learning!

I’ll be taking my Singer Featherweight and a sewing project to Thursday’s group. Most likely I’ll work on a charity quilt.

Simple goals for this week.

1. Some hand stitching.

2. Prep wool appliqué.

3. Begin piecing a top for charity.

    I think your embroidery is pretty! I’ll enjoy seeing how you change up the vase. The wool stitching looks like it will so enjoyable to stitch. Have a great week!

    Hi Sharon! Sure doesn’t look like you’re new to embroidery. That little piece looks great! I LOVE wool applique but I haven’t tried it either, so I’ll be watching to see how you like it. Have fun with your sewing groups!

    Chris had some serious family matters, so I offered to take on To Do Tuesday starting the first week of September. I’m so glad you joined in! :)

    Hi Sharon! Thanks for the link – it opened right up today without issue. It’s been a while since I’ve done hand embroidery but your vase of flowers look wonderful. I think the vase shape looks just fine, too – especially with that cute little heart on it! I’ve never done wool appliqué either, but it should be fairly easy since the edges won’t ravel at all. Have fun with your quilting friends today!! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
