To Do Tuesday 12-6-22

Welcome to the first To Do Tuesday in December! Can you hear my silent scream of desperation? 😲 Happens every year, so I might as well face the fact I will not finish everything I intended to get done for Christmas. How are you faring this month? Please let us know by adding your post to the linky below, and share with all of us your December plans. If you need more information, click on the couple in the To Do Tuesday logo above.

Here were my goals for last week:
✅1. Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange project - My day is December 7! - Done and my post is scheduled for tomorrow!
❌2. Gail's Fall 2022 Scrappy Mystery project - I have reluctantly given up on this one.
✅3. RBD quilt - Although no sewing, I have finally chosen a sashing!
✅4. Evening needlework  - Still working on Christmas projects!

I want to make myself a Christmas quilt! I love this pattern by Wendy Sheppard. It is in Quilts and More Winter 2022, and I purchased the back issue magazine on eBay. I have no idea if I will actually finish it before Christmas, but it will be a fun project!

Playlist for this coming week:
1. RBD quilt
2. Gather plaids for Christmas quilt! - See photo above
3. Evening needlework
4. Christmas decorations
5. Babysit Little Everett while older sister Delaney goes to a birthday party on Saturday

  1. Christmas time can be busy and you can only do what you can do. The Christmas pattern looks very nice, I guess maybe not finished for this Christmas but next?

  2. Looking forward to seeing your post for the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange. Classic conforts is a beautiful quilt and looks like an easy one, just perfect for the season. Are you planning to make it with flanel or normal quilting fabric?

  3. That is a really pretty Christmas quilt design! I love anything in Christmas colors. Looking forward to your blog hop post, too. I was reading through the posts yesterday, and wanted to make every single one of the treats!

  4. I am also looking forward to your day on the Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange hop.
    I like the Christmas Quilt, but I would never get it done by this Christmas season. I made ours several years ago, but not big enough for our bed. It’s a couch quilt! I love it though!

  5. I understand the Christmas crunch, Linda. I’m hurriedly finishing the binding on one gift now. Remember to breathe.


  6. I would LOVE to be able to make a Christmas quilt! I did buy a nice one last year, but of course it isn't home made. I do love the one in the picture. Pattie @ Olla-Podrida

  7. I hear that scream and second it! Good Luck!

  8. Hard to believe it's December. I may make a few small things for stockings, but I gave up on trying to get a lot of sewing done before the holidays, it just stresses me out. Good luck with all your plans for this week.

  9. Hi Linda! Thanks for hosting today! First TDT in December. EEK! There are only four Tuesdays in December so the year is rapidly approaching an end. I love Wendy Sheppard patterns, too. That looks like a fun project to make - NOT for this Christmas, though. Please don't add that stress to your plate. If it happens, that's fabulous but you'd still be shortchanged on enjoying it on your bed. It's gorgeous! I can't wait to see your fabric choices. You have a wonderful eye for that, I think. Have fun with little Everett! It is difficult to do anything but enjoy them! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. I do love Wendy Sheppard's designs! I hope you do get that Christmas quilt made!
    I've not even started last year's list of Christmas quilted gifts! Other things keep popping up in front. There is always next year, right!?

  11. I’m sure I heard your scream from here Linda! You do have a busy list, but I can sure understand your wanting to make a new Christmas quilt after seeing the photo. It is a beauty. 😉

  12. And for some reason I can’t post with my name showing. There is some conflict between blogger and Google going on. Carol @

  13. Hi Linda: Checking in this week and saw I need to read your Cookie Exchange post. When I am done here, I will be jumping over there. So excited for you. I have started several Christmas quilts. Only one have I ever finished and it ended up going to someone as a wedding gift. Now I am anxious to finish one for myself. Plaids sound like the perfect way to do it and that pattern looks fun! You have your hands full this week. Good luck and thank you again for being such an awesome host!

    1. Ah thanks Peggy you are so sweet! I sure hope you see my replies on here, because I don't have your email address. I hear you on the Christmas quilts. I have them in various stages but never seem to finish the ones I want the most - lol!
