Saturday Night's Progress

I have made a fair dent in my "Hope To Do' list.

  1. Finish the mystery heart row
  2. Sew all the various bits onto my Quilt Diva...been putting that off for a looong time
  3. A baby quilt for a premmie baby
  4. Mend my husbands tie - that is to help keep me out of the bad books and re hem one leg of a pair of trousers
  5. Buy and put onto bobbins the newest DMC colours
  6. Update my list of DMCs to include the new colours
  7. Sew the binding on Best Friends
  8. Finish Block 10 of my Quilty Cross Stitch
  9. Finish the machine applique on Mrs Beasley's #2 block
  10. Add the snow to the North Pole blocks that I have already done
  11. Prepare the final stitchery block of French Collection
And I didn't really start til lunchtime - had to do the taxi service & groceries first (and the thread shopping) - but they are all the easy peasy things...tomorrow may be a different story.

So here is my Mystery heart row

These are the "bits" to sew onto the wall hanging - 34 of them...

The baby quilt   (bad lighting at night time)...made from bits left over from this quilt.

NO photo of tie/pants.....boring stuff

Threads before

and after

Can't show you the list - but you are welcome to a copy if you like to keep your DMCs in colour groups...just let me know.

and Mrs Beasley Sampler Block #2...still a bit to go on this but all the applique is done now...

I have had a fun time joining in with Chookyblue and her friends..I am sure I can hear the giggling even here...Sleep well girls - tomorrow is another BIG day.
