To Do Tuesday 9-7-21

Welcome to To Do Tuesday, where we share our goals, accomplishments, projects on hold, and anything else we think is share-worthy! If you'd like to skip to the linkup, you'll find it at the end of this post. If you would like to add the To Do Tuesday "button" to your sidebar or blog post, you can grab the code in my sidebar.

Indian Corn blocks

As usual, I got side-tracked by Squirrel-spiration, this time in the form of a pattern called Indian Corn, and you can read more details here. I did finish two of the 20 blocks, and I like the results.

Completed embroidery block! You can get an idea how the embroidery will look with the blocks.

These were my goals from last week, and they were carried forward from the week before:
1. Work on piecing a backing for Exploding Heart - Progress - I found some nice fabric at Joann's to complete the backing, and I also bought some pretty binding! Tomorrow I plan to finish piecing the panel I made and start on sandwiching.
2. Start on Welcome Autumn cross stitch - Very little progress - I attached the linen to the frame - lol!
3. Continue to big-stitch on RBD quilt - No progress. The RBD quilt has been nothing but a cat bed this week.
4. Continue to stitch and piece on Christmas project - Progress - I finished one embroidery block (see photo above) and traced out another one.
5. Continue to make Dash-Along blocks - No Progress. However, I've been reviewing sashing options for the blocks, and I hope to have a post up soon.

Here are my goals for the coming week and hopefully will have some completed by next Tuesday!
1. Continue to make blocks for Indian Corn
2. Slow stitching at night - Welcome Autumn, RBD quilt, and Christmas project
3. Finish and sew together Dash-Along blocks
4. Sandwich Exploding Heart

Now let's see what you've been up to this past week and cheer on those lists for next week! (It's my very first link party, so if you encounter any issues, please email me at

  1. The link-up worked! Indian Corn is going to be beautiful and I love the blocks that go with your embroidery, too. Designs with chains running through them are favorites of mine. (Which reminds me I have RSC blocks I made last year that do that - I should really get them back out again!) Happy Tuesday, Linda!

  2. It looks like the link party has ended before it really got started!

  3. the link up closed after one entry - I could see no way to enter

  4. I'm sure it takes a little while to get the link thing figured out - I know I would have trouble with it and so didn't want to take on that responsibility

  5. Good morning, Linda! The fabrics you've chosen for Indian Corn look just fabulous. Your embroidered block in the center as a medallion piece looks just perfect. Like you planned it all along! Which I suspect you did. HAHA. Thanks so much for the link up today. I'm glad the party can continue. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. I like the chain look of your two projects, Linda.
    Good luck with your goals for this week and thanks for hosting.
