To Do Tuesday 3-29-22


Welcome to To Do Tuesday for the last week in March!  A big Thanks to all who linked up last week, and you are invited to click on the link below and add your post this week. We would love to visit your blog and see what you have going on! Click the busy couple above if you need more information.



My laptop bit the dust, and we found a good deal at Best Buy for a new one, so I have spent much time this past week transferring files and tweaking. I encountered an issue commenting on WordPress blogs which use Akismet, a spam filter which has been sending my comments to Spam folders. I emailed Akismet Support about this issue and thankfully received a reply stating they had made adjustments and that I shouldn't have any more problems. Hopefully this will fix the issue, but if you have a WordPress blog with Akismet, you might want to check your Spam folders for comments.


This project was not on my list but is done! This weekly Riley Blake Design block challenge pattern is Wind Blown by one of my favorite people - Amy Smart!

Last week I had two goals:
✅1. Wedding quilt - Yes I actually worked on it!
✅2. Help our daughter square away a few things at her house on Saturday - Yes! Dad took her to Lowe's and helped store attic stuff while I watched Little Everett and unpacked boxes.

Tomato plants are ready to be planted!

For this coming week:
1. Continue to work on Wedding Quilt
2. Get plants for front garden beds and work on back yard veggie and flower gardens
3. RBD challenge block
4. Pieces in the Garden blocks
5. Help daughter with a few odds and ends on Saturday

And now it's your turn to share your post (or Instagram photo!) by clicking the link below. After a few days have passed please come back and visit other blogs - you will be amazed by the inspiration you will find!

  1. Getting all the stuff transferred is a real headache when you get a new computer. We had to do the same for the SIT the week of spring break, she was getting hard drive failure warnings. Glad your daughter is mostly moved in, if not completely settled in at this point. Good luck with this week's list. Happy stitching!

  2. I will need to do this very soon as my lap top is slower and slower each new day. Your new block is beautiful, Linda.
    Have a great week.

  3. Getting a new devise is always a lot of work, but I bet it will make a big difference! The Riley Blake block is a pretty block - sweet and refreshing colors. And planting time for you, Linda - yay! I'm ready, but Colorado is not!

  4. it is always interesting to see what everyone is working on. I sure bet your daughter is glad she has you and her dad to help her get settled in and help with the little one while moving. Thanks for the heads up on wordpress I haven't noticed anything with the spam yet.

  5. So Akismet was the problem - how did you figure that out? I'll watch and see if your comment comes through. We are still chilly here, with snow in the forecast. I'm so ready for sunshine and warm temps!

  6. Cute little block from Amy Smart! Summer must really be on the way if you have tomatoes ready to go in the ground. I'm still learning my new laptop. But I love it. And it really did go more smoothly than I had envisioned.

  7. Lovely to hear that daughter and Everett are getting all sorted out with the help of loving parents. That block is a little beauty too, Linda. Gosh I hate computer snafus! Happy Stitching.

  8. Computer woes are just the worst!
    I should be doing more in the garden but this is supposed to be a "year off" so to speak (for me AND the garden!) so I'm keeping it very minimal. Too early here for tomatoes but I do need to get some cabbage and things in. Anxiously awaiting the first asparagus spears. Where ARE they?? I guess we just need to warm up more!

  9. I seriously envy that you can now plant tomato plants! I cannot WAIT to get out into the garden.

  10. Hi Linda,
    We are still in winter mode here. So planting isn't going to happen for a while. I really
    like your Wind Blown block...so pretty. And I've been there, done that on crashed computers..but I have a computer tech that lives with me, my son...so he helped me a lot when my computer crashed a few years ago. Hope you have great day!

  11. That block is beautiful. Your daughter is fortunate to have her dad around to help her with things.
    Reading about your gardening makes me miss the times i could do this with my previous yard. Enjoy it all.
    This also reminds me of my oldest son's garden up in Washington . It is one amazing garden. I think I'll post photos of it soon.

    1. Oh I hope you do post photos of your son's garden - I'd love to see them. My gardening is nothing like it used to be when we had acreage. I miss that garden, but I don't miss living down south. ;)

    2. I was from the midwest and what I know of the south in the middle of the country and east the summers are so humid. We get some humidity because of monsoonal weather but nothing that lasts very long.

    3. Yes you are right about humidity. We lived within 100 miles of the Gulf of Mexico, and the weather was dominated by the sea breeze. I like the drier air here in north Texas. We get some humidity from time to time, but mostly low humidity.

  12. Such a nuisance when your computer goes down big time. Yay for Amy Smart - fan too. Great challenge block.

  14. I really miss gardening, it's been a few years or more now, but I just don't feel like I have the energy or the time for it :(

    1. I know Marsha, you really do have a lot on your plate! For me gardening is always fun in the spring and not so fun in the summer. ;)

  15. Thank you for the tip to check our spam folders. The wedding quilt is going to be so pretty. Tomato plants and family time are just the perfect addition to any week.
    PS. Your linky is ending in 5 hours?
