Ta-Da! Tuesday from Melva Loves Scraps

I squeaked by, just barely, but I did it!  Ta-Da!  My two To-Do things on the list are checked off successfully.

  Work on a few "postcard blocks" for our Camping Journal Quilt


Here is Lake Corpus Christie...  the picture didn't quite capture the brilliance of the sky, but I like the block.


Below is the lighthouse on Bolivar Island, across the bay from Galveston, TX....

That lighthouse was definitely a tricky one to get straight and centered.  It required some unpicking of stitches, and while still not perfect, I can accept it as it is.



This is a block ...

It's Just Too... Tuesday To-Do from Melva Loves Scraps

I think I am safe to say (and have others agree) that life lately has been just TOO!  Too messy... Too difficult... Too challenging... Too overwhelming...

In February Dave and I turned off the news... with the exception of one of the Sunday morning shows that tends to be more entertainment/documentary than "news".  This week I turned it off as well.  While I feel it is important to be informed of the happenings in the world, I simply could not take it any more.

I firmly believe that there is a way for reporters to present the facts of ...

Tuesday Two-Do from Melva Loves Scraps

It's Tuesday... again!  This past week seemed to have flown by.  

Probably because we did a little escape to the high country.  It was much needed and so cherished as we rested up.  I think one of my most favorite things about going camping is the fact that we find ourselves tucked away in bed at about 8 p.m to read until we just can't keep our eyes open and then waking around 6:00 a.m. as we listen to the world of nature wake up.

Below is the view we had for a few days ...

What To Do, What To Do... from Melva Loves Scraps

Here we are with another week staring me in the face...  

As I consider what I said I would do last week on Tuesday To-Do compared to what I actually did,  I didn't get everything checked off the list.  BUT, there was so much more that was done than what I listed...  Does that count for anything??? ('cuz I really think it should!)

❧Pattern writing for the Pieces From The Past Sew Along - Goal of 5 more patterns I have four patterns written and ready for testing... almost there!

❧Begin the king-sized commissioned quilt - 11 log cabins & two silhouette ...

Tuesday To Do from Melva Loves Scraps

I am, by nature, a list maker... sometimes it is on paper, but most of the time it is only in my mind.  

Dave is currently gone for a few days and for the last few days leading up to his departure, I have been formulating a list in my mind of things I want to do while he is gone.  

It probably seems silly to you, but one of the top things... is to make overnight oatmeal.  You see, he is not a fan of oatmeal.  Oh, I slip oatmeal into our morning breakfast rotation about once every two ...
