Gifts From the Heart and Weekly To-Do

by | Oct 24, 2020 | 4 comments

Greetings friends!! Wow, another week has come and gone! How did that happen so quickly??! Time seems to go faster and faster. I remember, as a youngster, my Granny talking about how time was flying…and now I understand…TOTALLY!! As a kid, time just seemed to crawl, but I guess it’s that way with most kids! Oh well, such is life! On with the tasks at hand!!

Let’s see how things went last week on my to-do list!

  • Write blog post for Tuesday’s Halloween Hoppin’ Hop! ✓ done – You can check out that post here

Monkeys, Snails and Kitty Cat Tails!

  • Work on writing pattern for Halloween quilt and non-Halloween version!  – nope still not done!
  • Do a test run on gift for Carol’s hop and maybe get the real one completed! ✓ done – you’ll have to come back Tuesday to see that project!!
  • Try a new Alfredo Chicken Chili recipe! ✓ done – and boy did we enjoy it!!
  • Pick up new contacts Tuesday!! ✓ done – I can see again – after three days of headaches getting used to the new prescription!!

Overall, it was a pretty good week! I had so much fun making that Halloween quilt! Moving on to next week!

  • Finish project and write blog post for Tuesday’s From the Heart Blog Hop
  • Cut out appliques for the next block of Sunshine Cove
  • Digitize and post some more letters of the Christmas Alphabet for my IO group

Not a lot to work on this week. I think tomorrow will be the busiest day finishing up my project for Carol’s Hop. Here is the schedule for this week’s hop. There should be some great gift ideas in this hop!! Please visit my blogging friends and see who might inspire you!

Not a terribly busy week but should be enought to keep me out of trouble…unless some squirrels pop in!! I’ll be linking up with my friends at Home Sewn by Us on Tuesday’s To-Do List!! Until next time…

Have YOU started your Holiday stitching??

    Hi Brenda! I agree with you – time seems to be flying by. And yet it seems like the election and all the key-rap that goes with it will never be over. I tried your taco soup – had it for dinner last night! It was delicious and I’m glad that you shared the recipe. (At least, I think it was your recipe?!!) I’m off to check out today’s post. ~smile~ Roseanne
