To Do Tuesday 2-1-22

Welcome to To Do Tuesday on this first day of February! This is the place for you to link your post about any goals or happenings or progress you'd like to share. If you are a reader and would like to join in, just click on the relaxed couple above to learn more about To Do Tuesday. Hopefully no hiccups in the linkup this morning, but thank those of you who email me with gentle reminders that the dates are wrong! You certainly are a tolerant bunch. 😁

Stomach virus and colds have laid us low this past week, so the motivation to get up off the sofa and play in the sewing room was very low. I had a day or two of feeling better and spent the time fixing comfort food and relaxing. Then today my head cold hit me with a vengeance, and I got very little done. Let's look at the list from last week:
❌1. RBD challenge blocks
❌2. SAHRR block - diamonds
❌3. Wedding quilt blocks

So my list for next week is to move them forward:
1. RBD Challenge blocks
2. SAHRR blocks - diamonds and stars
3. Wedding quilt blocks

Look at this gorgeous box from Cotton Cuts, I won in a drawing by participating in the Pieces of The Santa Fe Trail sew-along hosted by Melva of Melva Loves Scraps. Melva is starting a new row-by-row sew-along on February 3 called Pieces in the Garden, which you can read about here. I enjoyed the last one so much and am looking forward to the next one.

I apologize for never catching up with your posts from January 18. I feel like I missed important stuff! At any rate, I love seeing that array of photos each week ready to click for inspiration, encouragement, and motivation. Be sure to visit other blogs to share the love!

Because of some HTML issues my platform is having with the link to Marsha's Spot, I am posting it here without the hyperlink. Marsha has a lovely blog with cute projects, and her positive attitude is so refreshing. To visit her blog simply copy the code below and paste it into your browser:

  1. So sorry to hear you have had a tough week, health wise. Hope you will be totally well again soon. What a gorgeous box of fabric, love the colours.

  2. Oh Linda! I am so sory to hear you got some Stomach virus and colds last week. Hope you and your husband are feeling better. Here in Brazil these symptoms are being related with the Omicron variant, a test would be recommended from the third day of the onset of symptoms.
    Take care and be well.

  3. I'm sorry you've been hit with the double whammy of stomach bug and head cold. The stomach bug has been hard on the schools here along with COVID. Hopefully you are feeling much better this week and can make some good progress on your to do list.

  4. Hope you're feeling better and getting back to normal at your house, Linda! That's a beautiful box of treats you received from Cotton Cuts. It will be fun to see what you do with it!

  5. No post to link up today; I haven't been doing much sewing other than the SAHRR. Glad the stomach bug has passed, but sorry about the head cold. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. Good morning Linda! I'm so sorry you have been feeling poorly. The whole lack of energy and needing/wanting to rest is hard to ignore. Just be sure you lay low and take it easy. {{Hugs}} Wow, what a pretty collection of fabrics from Cotton Cuts and congrats on winning. Melva does such a nice job with her SALs. I am thinking of joining in with her new one that she just started. Thanks so much for today's linky party! Feel better. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Oof, hope everyone is feeling better by now! Don't worry about catching up with everyone--I think we all go through those times! Congrats on the beautiful prize and snuggle with those kitties for me!

  8. Hi Linda. I found your blog from reading Judy's Busy Hands Are Happy Hands post about To Do Tuesday. I hope you all are feeling much better. Thanks for this linky party, I'll have fun visiting everyone's blogs and may join one of these days.
    It will also be fun to follow along on your Pieces in the Garden sew along.

  9. hope you feeling better and don't have the virus

  10. Congrats for winning that box of fabric! What fun, and how lovely!

  11. I hope you feel better soon. I always enjoy watching your projects getting moved forward. Good luck with this week’s list 😉

  12. Hope you are getting better. As much as we love to play with our fabric sometimes it’s nice to just veg. Maybe this week a little sewing mojo will come back. Hugs

  13. Sorry to hear of the sicknesses. What a wonderful win! You are so very kind.
