To Do Tuesday 5-10-22

It's that time again - today is To Do Tuesday! You are invited to link up a post where you may share your weekly goals, events in your life, ongoing or new projects, or show off your progress and finishes. Please add your post to the link at the bottom of this post, then grab a cuppa to go visit some great blogs! The link opens on Tuesdays at 12:01AM and closes on Mondays at 11:59PM

I kept my goals simple last week:
✅1. Work on Wedding Quilt - Progress was made - I had to reorganize the pieces for the blocks, and some of the labels were missing. My kitty assistants are suspected.
✅2. Access Passport To Quilting - I saved a few patterns and enjoyed visiting the websites.

I did finish the Riley Blake Designs challenge block, which I forgot to put on my list. I had a few missteps but they will not be seen from a galloping horse, and I like the final result. There are only two more blocks to go! Other than that, we had appointments last week and yesterday and worked in the yard a few times, so the sewing room was not visited too often.

Here are my goals for the coming week:
1. Wedding Quilt - get blocks sewn together
2. RBD block challenge #15 - pattern comes out today
4. Garden activity -  I have plants growing in our veggie garden and our first marble sized tomato!
5. A belated birthday party for our two Littles, who are coming to visit with our daughter Saturday.

I can't wait to see what you have to link up this week! I am constantly amazed and inspired and entertained by your posts.

To Do Tuesday 5-3-22

Welcome to To Do Tuesday on this first Tuesday in May! If you are new to To Do Tuesday, this is the day we share our accomplishments from the past week and look forward to new goals for the next. Click on the busy couple above for more information and please join us!

I encourage you to visit the links below where you will find so much inspiration and friendliness. Thank you all for being so faithful to link up each week. Your posts inspire me and encourage me more than you'll ever know!

Last week my husband began the procedure for teeth implants. His appointment was supposed to start at 10:00AM, but then his surgery was delayed until 1:30 due to miscommunication about his heart issues. He had six teeth implants placed, and he did very well with no problems. We ended up finally getting home around 6:00PM. He has been a pretty good patient, but the temporary dentures are quite uncomfortable. Hopefully he can get those adjusted this week. Now we wait about 6 months for his implants to heal before final placement.



Top row: Bow blocks; Middle row: Friendship Stars; Bottom row: Bachelor blocks

I had prepped the final four Bachelor blocks so that I could finish them up after his surgery and post them on the monthly linkup on Melva Loves Scraps, but due to the surgery delay I did not make the deadline, Melva posted my progress anyway (thank you Melva!). Over the weekend in a flurry of chain piecing, I finished the blocks, and the photo above is the completed row as well as the other two rows. The next row is "Hours" and that pattern block is found right here.

Here were my goals from last week:
❌1. Get busy on the Wedding Quilt - Nothing!
❌2. Do some squirrel sewing - Not even squirrels entered the sewing room!
❌3. Finish quilting Indian Corn (See above - this is a quilt I wanted to have finished for Thanksgiving last year and ran out of gold thread before I finished quilting it!) - Nada - I've put it back in the closet
✅4. Finish Pieces In The Garden blocks and do a post - Done - photo above


Have you heard about Passport To Quilting? It's a 5-day event hosted by 20+ designers who are offering a free "bundle" of patterns to participants and will offer shop discounts. Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter is one of the designers, and you can read all about it on her post right here, or click the logo above to be taken straight to registration.

I'm keeping it simple for the coming week:
1. Work on Wedding Quilt
2. Access Passport To Quilting
