To-Do Tuesday January 5, 2021

A recent early morning sunrise - glorious!

This is my first time joining Roseanne and friends in a linky party for To-Do Tuesday, where we review what we accomplished from the previous week and list goals for the next week. I did not have a post for last Tuesday, but I can tell you I accomplished a few things, such as taking down all the Christmas decorations and recovering from coronavirus. I am happy to report that I had a mild case, I am almost symptom free, and I have resumed most normal activity. 

Here is my To-Do  list for January 5-January 12:

1. Finish the embroidery project bag for my oldest granddaughter. I drew her name for Christmas, and she wanted basic supplies for embroidery and for me to teach her how to embroider. She wants to learn to embellish items to sell in an Etsy shop. I had intended to make her a vinyl pouch to hold her supplies on the Friday before everyone was to come on Monday to celebrate an early Christmas. But that is the day I started displaying symptoms of coronavirus, so we had to postpone our celebration until February, I'll be using a pattern I've used before, so it should go together quickly.

2. Work on the January block for 2021 Monthly Color Challenge. The challenge this year involves colors of vegetables and fruits and this month is is eggplant.

3. Pull out the pink scrap bin to work on this month's RSC color of pink.

4. Prep for the 2021 Stay At Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by the lovely Roseanne.

5. Start working on my Guns and Roses quilt, which needs to be sandwiched, quilted, and bound this month. I am participating in All People Quilt 2021 UFO Challenge to help me with my goals. You make a list of 12 UFOs, and each month APQ will announce a random number between 1-12,. The corresponding number on your list is the one you try to complete. The number for January is #7, and that is Guns and Roses on my list. 

6. Work on Village in the Snowfall cross stitch.

We will see how far I get! You may find information about each of the challenges by clicking on the buttons in my sidebar.


  1. wow u are going to be busy. Glad your symptoms were mild.

    1. Hi Sandy! If I could just make the housework go away I'd be as busy as I like. :)

  2. I'm so glad your bout was mild, too. You have some fun projects lined up! I like the fabrics for the project bag!

  3. So glad to hear you're just about back to normal, virus-wise, Linda! I have many of the same things on my to-do list this week, too. Looking forward to seeing what you start with for the round robin project!

  4. Nothing like a public list to help keep you on track. I’ve pulled up my list midweek just to make sure I don’t start following squirrels in the studio. Sometimes it works.

  5. You put me to shame! You have been busy. I am crazy in love with that “Goals“ fabric! I have to track some of that down. That would make a fabulous journal cover. I’m so happy to hear you had a mild case of the virus.

  6. I am still going to stick with UFO’s. But Jen’s and the Round Robin are in the back of my mind. Hugs - and I bet you need a lot like me!

  7. Hi Linda! Welcome to To-Do Tuesdays!! I am so sorry to hear you contracted the virus. Thankfully, with mild symptoms. Those fabrics you selected for the project bag are just gorgeous. I need to be working on the eggplant and pink blocks for the month as well this week. Good luck with your list and thanks so much for linking up this week! ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. Lovely fabrics, it's going to be a fabulous pouch! I hope you will recover totally from Covid, and achieve all these great goals on your to-do list!

  9. How fun that your granddaughter wants to learn to embroider. I was shocked when my daughter finally expressed an interest in something that had to do with needle and thread. Hope you've been able to make good progress on your to do list. January is passing by fast!
