To-Do Tuesday

Sunrise in north Texas
It's Tuesday already and time for To-Do Tuesday, hosted by Chris at ChrisKnits. The rain and accompanying cooler temperatures here in north Texas have both come to an end and summer hit us with 90 degree plus temperatures.

Rosie and Jack (in the background) were very helpful while I finished the Rose Garden quilt

Here are my goals from last week:
✔1. Start quilting rose quilt - DONE! It is now officially known as the Rose Garden quilt - all quilted and still debating the binding.
✔2. Plant green beans - DONE, and I also planted cantaloupe. They are already coming up!
✔3. Block for Riley Blake Design block challenge - DONE and posted here
✔4. Work on Monthly Color Challenge blocks - PROGRESS

Plans for the upcoming week:
1. Bind Rose Garden quilt, post about it, and send to my niece
2. Start on one of my UFOs
3. Block for RBD block challenge
4. Work on Monthly Color Challenge blocks

Tomato plants have loved the rain, and I've picked a few cherry tomatoes!

We have a week jam-packed with doctors' appointments. My husband will have a heart catheterization on Wednesday to see if he has blockage. He had a heart attack in 2012 and had a stent and a defibrillator inserted. Things have been going pretty well, but his "ejection fraction" has steadily decreased. Normal ejection fraction is 60% or above - his is 15% - and his new cardiologist wants to rule out blockage as the cause. He has not done well on beta blockers in the past, but his doctor started him on them again to see if that will help. On top of that, he broke a molar last week, so we are visiting with dental clinics this week to find the best course of action. Fun times!

Be sure to click here and see what others have been up to during the past week. I hope the rest of your week is  wonderful!


  1. Looking forward to seeing your Rose Garden quilt, Linda! Those tomato plants look happy and healthy! I hope all goes well for your hubby. Those doctor appointments can be nerve-wracking sometimes.

  2. Hi,
    Beautiful Sunrise...the kitties look totally comfy
    on the quilt...which is beautiful. Have a great day!

  3. Beautiful sunrise! Great job on achieving your goals this week.
    Good luck on your goal for next week.

  4. Congratulations on meeting all of your goals from last week. That is impressive! I am still trying to meet goals I set for myself a couple of months ago. How exciting that you have already picked a couple of cherry tomatoes. I have a few on the way, but nothing even starting to turn red. There is nothing like a homegrown tomato.

  5. Rose Garden looks lovely, and clearly the kitties approve. I hope your husband's procedure goes smoothly today. Bummer about the molar, so I hope you soon find a dentist for that procedure, too! I'll be praying for you today.

  6. Beautiful kitties! I'm guessing you're hitting the 100's this week too? Yuck, I'm not ready for it. Takes away all the garden fun for sure. I have weeding & tomato pruning--you name it. Quilting is much more fun, and cool! Have a great week sewing. Looking forward to the finish pics of Rose Garden!

  7. You are back in the groove - looks like the kitties love the quilt! Your tomatoes look great! This morning it was 72 with humidity in the 80% - so I did a 20 minute walk and 10 on the bike. I really miss my walk, so going to try again but only 20 minutes. We missed the rain that hit the North side of SA - some to the South of us - we are like the Oreo cookie ! Always in the middle! LOL. Have a great week.

  8. Good luck to you and your husband this week. That is a lot of worry, alhtough they seem to have lots of fixes for tickers these days.
