BUSY TUESDAY........

I've got a lot to do today....so I'm hoping I get it all done....we'll see....First off it's To-Do-Tuesday, so I'll start there.

Last Tuesday my list to-do was this:

1. Finish the Easter Quilt (it's been in the hoop "forever")
2. Learn a new embroidery stitch (Buttonholed Cable Stitch) DONE
3.  Put the Spring Quilt in the hoop.

The Easter Quilt DID NOT get done.  Went to put the binding on and my sewing machine isn't working.......so it needs to go in the shop.  So I've been hand sewing the binding on, I've never done this before so wish me luck....picture next week.

I was so flustered after the sewing machine thing and didn't get the Spring quilt in the hoop.    The only thing from my list last week I got done is learn a new embroidery stitch....Buttonholed Cable Stitch....
 And the stitch over at Pintangle this week is Butterfly Chain....here's mine....
The new stitch I want to learn is Spanish Feather Stitch.

So my tasks for next week are.....

1. Finish the Easter Quilt
2. Put the Spring Quilt in the hoop
3. Learn the Spanish Feather Stitch

Between quilting and embroidery, I haven't had much time to read this week, but I'm reading In Good Faith by Scott Pratt on my Kindle Fire, since the library is closed.  This is a series of books and this is book 2 of 9....hoping to read the whole series.   Here is my teaser for Teaser Tuesday.

Sheriff Leon Bates shivered as he sat alone inside the Dodge Dakota he used for surveillance.  Nothing glamorous about this part of the job.

  1. It does make me wonder who is being surveilled. Hope you're enjoying your reading.

  2. Hi Sherrie! I had to giggle slightly about you not finishing your Easter quilt, as I'm still work on my table topper. We'll both be ahead of the game for next year! And it's a week earlier so we would only have about 50 weeks now. I'm sorry to hear about your sewing machine. We depend on them working so when they don't it's upsetting - hopefully not expensive. Good luck learning the stitch and with your to-do list. Thanks so much for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I love quilts. I don't have anyone close to me who makes them. I have an Amish hand sewn quilt that my husband got me for our anniversary and I love it and some others I have found on Etsy.. What a talent....Michelle

  4. Oh my, murder mysteries. Might have to give this series a try. Love your hand embroidery. That is something I've been working on learning this past year. Thanks for sharing the link.
