To-Do Tuesday

Checkerboard Star - block #16 - last block for RBD Block Challenge - and my favorite!

It's time for To-Do Tuesday, and I'll be linking with other participants to share progress at the blog of Chris at ChrisKnits!

We enjoyed a fairly quiet last week with no doctor appointments - yay! We are gearing up for a visit from our son and family for 4th of July weekend. Since we made both extra bedrooms into an office and my sewing room, we have no guest bedroom. Luckily our kids don't care! The family of five will sleep in our living room on an air mattress and our reclining sofas. It will be the first time they've visited since we moved last October, and we can't wait!

Summer Picnic - block #15 for RBD Block Challenge

Progress was made in the sewing room on my goals from last week:

✔1. Start another QAL - PROGRESS and posted here
2. Work on Exploding Hearts quilt - NO PROGRESS
✔3. Make last block for RBD Challenge - DONE and posted here (see a photo of all the blocks below)

Since we will have visitors by the end of the week, I'm keeping it real on my goals:
1. Continue progress on DashAlong

That will be it for the week! Be sure to check out the plans of all the To-Do Tuesday participants right here.
