 My list from last week....

1.  Finish binding Overall Sam.

2.  Make 2 more Tile Blocks.

3.  Put the Red Work together.👎

4. Put the outer border on the Salt and Sand Quilt.👎

5. Put a few more rows on my Ripple Afghan

Well, I think I did pretty good this week...3 of 5 done.

I've seen lots of folks using "squirrel" for some of their quilting projects...it was driving me crazy trying to figure out what the heck this was.  So I Googled it.  Here is what I found.

"A squirrel is a sudden distraction that pulls us away from projects already underway. Something so exciting that we drop what we're doing to enjoy the unexpected."

Wow...I've been doing this for years and didn't even know it!  Well, no squirrels for me right now.  Just trying to finish up some projects. 

1. Overall Sam is finished...


2. Got the Tile quilt blocks done and started the process of adding strips...and found an OOOOPS...Do you see it??

 That top row has to come off, the strip on the left corner is throwing off the whole thing.  So Mr. Seam Ripper will be busy today.

3.  I started putting the Red Work together and found I haven't got enough blocks to make it.  So plan B.....I'm going to figure out how to work the Blue Work into this.  

4.  I was waiting on fabric for the Salt and Sand quilt....it came this past weekend.  I'll be working on this one this week.

5.  I got a couple more rows on the Afghan last night.  This picture is showing all kinds of wacky colors on this afghan.  I had just started the medium gray.  So I got 10 rows added on.

The camera is showing the gray area as white and the blue is green.  My list for.....

To-Do Tuesday

In The Kitchen Blog Hop 



  1. LOL, yes, that is the perfect definition for a Squirrel!!! Welcome to the dark side that you didn't even know you were on. Thanks for linking up today

  2. I agree with Mr. Google's definition of a squirrel, too - that's perfect! I love your tile blocks, but sorry you have to pull out the seam ripper for them.

  3. Thanks Sherrie for the squirrel definitions, I was also lost on this.
    Love the zigzag afghan and sorry about that opss section. Good luck with your goals for this week.

  4. Your tile quilt really caught my eye - love love love it!
    I also love that you did a thumbs down for the goals you didn't achieve. I hope you don't mind if I follow suit.

  5. Hi Sherri! Now that you know what squirrel projects are, you'll have to learn about DrEAMi projects. Those are Drop Everything And Make it - which are very squirrel-like. Sandra at mmmQuilts has a linky party every month to share your DrEAMi finishes - and to find more squirrel possibilities. It's amazing what one can finish in a hurry when the interest is high. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. You had checks on more than half your list, so that's a good week. Hopefully you have more check marks for this week's list. Love the colors in your afghan, very pretty!


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
