15 Minutes, Monday This and That, and other linkies

To Do Tuesday:

Last week's goals:

1. Embroider 3 elephants ✔

2. Mountains - rr block 

3. Sheep - rr block 

4. Pick out boat shed fabrics from my stash (for Wellington, NZ row in my trip quilt) X

5. Fishy Business - Feb blocks in red 

6. Prep Lori Holt's "Let's Bake" pies 

I loved making those cute pie blocks and look forward to making the rest of the blocks over the next year or so.  I am making it my own personal block of the month.

A lot of stitching has been happening in and out of my sewing room.  Saturday I had to help my sweetheart with roofing the hay barn.  My job was to help him load tin onto the fork lift and then send him up and down the fork lift all day long.  Because I had to stay at the bottom to bring him up and down, I sat in my car and stitched elephant embroidery.  I got all of them done except one.  I did it in the car because it was pretty cold outside.

7. Begin another princess block X

This week's goals:

1. Embroidery last elephant

2. Assemble Celestial Star Top

3. Sew up Pineapple blocks at the Snowgoose Retreat this weekend
