To-Do Tuesday, November 29, 2022

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving & weekend! We had two days of delicious meals with family and friends. More about those below.

To-Do Tuesday, November 22, 2022

  1. Today I start cooking for Thanksgiving! ✔️
  2. Keep moving ahead on Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden. ✔️
  3. Will I sew on anything else this week? Time will tell. ✔️
1. Our Thanksgiving got derailed. It was just going to be a small gathering on Thanksgiving Day since Thanksgiving was claimed by most of my adult children’s in-laws this year. That’s fine by me as we had a large Family Non Traditional Thanksgiving the Sunday before at my son’s house. Non traditional as there was no turkey, dressing, or gravy in sight! But food was yummy, games were played, and conversation abounding.
Thanksgiving Day was also my DIL’s birthday. I had planned on having them over for lunch and a birthday celebration but all of their family were sick with 100 degree tempts. We postponed until Friday, hoping they would recover, they had been sick since Tuesday. So Friday, my other guests did arrive, only 5 of us. I cooked all our traditional thanksgiving foods.  We all enjoyed the smaller gathering. Food was sent to my son’s house – not even sure anyone would be interested with the fevers.
Saturday we had a small birthday outdoors celebration for my DIL on their patio.
2. Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden
Week 33 attached to the ever growing quilt.
Week 34 pieced.
Week 34 attached!
Week 35 prep. I’m focusing on getting this quilt completed! Full Steam Ahead!
3. I finished a simple quilt for charity!
I had two giraffe prints that I paired together for a 42″ x 43″ little quilt. The back is flannel with the spotted giraffe print which was left over from PJs I made for my daughter years ago. The other print is by Charley Harper, Nurture for Birch fabrics. I picked it up a couple of years ago at a shop going out of business. It’s quilted in a simple cross hatch with So Fine Thread color 402 Pearl.
I really would like to finish the Homage to Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt-Along this year. But counting the weeks I have left, I don’t think it will happen. But I’m gong to push myself and we’ll see how close I get!

Focus this week -

    Your hexie quilt is so pretty – I’ve not seen that design before! So many have had their holiday gatherings disrupted by illness; tis the season, I guess! Glad you made the best of it, and hope your DIL and family are back to full health soon!

    You are doing an amazing job with your Homage to Grandmother’s Garden. Keep plugging away. It looks fantastic. I haven’t started assembling any of my EPP blocks because I am not sure where I would store everything. I have 3 quilts in process. LOL.

    How nice to have a stressless Thanksgiving although I can totally relate to the sick ones. That happened in my family too.

    Good luck on this week’s list!

    Wow that’s too bad on the illness – having fever is so miserable. I hope all are better now. Your beautiful Grandmother’s garden quilt is so fun to watch it grow. Thank you for sharing with To Do Tuesday!
