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

I'm keeping it simple for the coming week:

  1. Oh my teeth implants, not sure I have even come across that, I guess I should be thankful I haven't! Hope it all heals. Must go check out about the passport to quilting.

  2. Sounds like a busy week. It never helps when you have to be out of the house. Hopefully your guy is healing well. Enjoy Passport to Quilting!

  3. This week I am keeping it simple too - I have to complete the red border on my flannel quilt and that is all there is too it - I have been putting it off every day for various reasons, it is not hard to do, it is just long borders. My husband has had an implant but just one tooth I remember it being a bit of a process.

  4. Simple is good when life gets in the way, Linda! We've all run into that before. Hope your guy's healing goes smoothly - dental work is sooo not fun! Meanwhile, your Pieces in the Garden blocks are really pretty!

  6. Well, teeth implants do not sound pleasant at all, and I'm very sorry about the long delay for his surgery. Makes for a long day for both of you! I'm glad you are keeping it simple this week, so you have time to rest and recharge a bit!

  9. Oh my! My dear husband is on his second try for just one tooth implant. The first try didn't work. I hope all goes well for you hubby! Come to think of it, he just had his second try at carpel tunnel surgery - it was a re-do from a year ago that left him with 3 numb fingers.

    I hope you have time to play and enjoy in your sewing room this week!

  10. Hi Linda! I'm glad to hear that DH's implant appointment went well although what a long day that turned into. Waiting six months for the next step has to be hard, too! Great job on the Pieces blocks. They look so pretty all in a row! Good luck with this week's list. Keeping it short and sweet is definitely in my bailiwick lately. Thank you for the Passport link! I signed up and am looking forward to some new ideas. Thank you, also, for the linky party. I appreciate it very much. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  14. That was a very busy week for you. It sounds like your husband is doing well. Yet you still managed to get some work in on your to do list. Great job! I do love those garden blocks! Good luck this week!

    1. Hi Peggy! I'm hoping his mouth is doing well and will heal quickly, bless his heart. He is tired of soft food - lol!

  15. You have been busy bee! I bet the cost was tremendous for his implants! I certainly hope he does well. I hate the impression process, but I have a great Prothedontist - he is a love. I fell over when I got an estimate on my upcoming dental work - up $3,000 to $4,000!!!!!! I think that the Government should make Congress and all in the White House drive their own cars and pay their own bill! Also get rid of the servants and go out and eat! Then the might just start the Keystone Pipeline again.

    1. I'm just sorry my website has issues with it - I blame it on Inlinkz but I'm not sure! Anyway, I'm glad to "see" you again and headed now to read your post. :)

  17. Your husband might get thinner going without normal teeth for 6 months. Hopefully the dentures will help a lot with that.

    Great bachelor blocks! I like the yellow as it goes with spring.
