To-Do Monday #8 Weekly Update

Join us today for the weekly To-Do Tuesday list #8 and update. Linda has hosted the To-Do Tuesday linky party and today is her very last one. We thank you so much, Linda! Many of our friends join in and share their ongoing projects and recent finishes. While Linda’s reign of hosting is coming to an end the friendships made will not. I will also link with Brenda at Songbird Designs. She has a Monday linky party called Monday Musings.

So Fine thread is on sale again at Green Fairy Quilts for a year-end sale!

To-Do for last week:

  1. Lots of non-sewing events!
  2. Longarm quilting day #2
  3. Two limit list for a stress-free week

To-Do #1

I’m sure everyone had a lot of non-sewing events on their plate last week. Sickness and bad weather kind of put a crimp in our celebrations. Not enough to keep us down for the balance of 2022. There was a birthday celebration at Chuck E. Cheese. It’s not a destination for food unless you are under the age of six. The games, however, were a blast and taken very seriously by a certain three-year-old and her uncle (the birthday boy). More pictures will be shared on Thursday about this fun venture.

Addison was bound and determined to win or bust. Her uncle told her they needed more tickets, so she took that comment to heart. More tickets coming right up!

To-Do #2

Longarm quilting day with Carol and Ken was not meant to be. We will reschedule sooner than later, I’m sure. Winter in Wisconsin is always a crap shoot as far as making firm plans for fun times.

In preparation for the next longarm quilting session, we gave this 2020 Monthly Color Block quilt top some serious thought. The paint splotch backing fabric was acquired long ago and actually used on Sydney’s T-shirt quilt, too. Our local quilt shop has shopping online so I ordered and picked up some black batting. We think this batting will be a better choice. It should help to avoid those pinprick dots that often show up when using white batting with a darker fabric top. We’ll see!

To-Do Stay-At-Home Round Robin

The Stay-At-Home Round Robin 2023 is right around the corner. In just a few short weeks (Monday, January 16), the festivities begin. Six blogger friends will share the center blocks that we will build our quilts upon. Every Monday thereafter a different compadre will share their suggestion for the round along with tips and tricks. March 13th will be the final parade. There’ll be a weekly linky party AND some giveaways. It’s nine quick weeks of round-robin fun. This year, our project is unique for us as it involves pastels. ~smile~ We hope you consider joining us.

To-Do for the week of December 27th through January 2nd:

The last week of 2022 and the first Sunday and Monday of the New Year!

  1. Work on a car quilt for each little
  2. Get into a back-to-work frame of mind
  3. Low-stress limit!

  3. I think Addison can beat all her competition! LOL Sorry you had to cancel your longarm day. I look forward to seeing your quilted Color Challenge quilt! Love the backing! Have a good week. I hope you are both feeling much better soon. Take good care of yourselves! Thanks for linking up with Monday Musings!

  4. Oh dear! back to work frame of mind! The Colour 2020 top looks perfect for quilting next, it sure is gorgeous. A pity the #2 event had to be postponed, so hope not too long before you get another chance.

  5. Rochelle Summers says:

    I remember those Chuck E Cheese days from when my kids and Grands were little!! Bummer about illnesses and not getting your quilting date. We had a blast with the Grands for Christmas even though Grandpa caught a bug. Getting home from Nevada to LA and San Diego was a challenge because the planes and pilots were stuck somewhere else. So the travellers rented cars and drove home. UGH! Now it’s raining in No Nevada and the low snow is melting! Looking forward to you Thursday post. Sorry you have to get back to work! Hugs to you.

  6. Darn the bad weather and people getting sick – that affected our Christmas here, too! Your Chuckie Cheese outing sounds fun, though. That backing looks perfect for the color block quilt – hope you get to go for the long-arming date very soon,

  7. Vicki in MN says:

  8. Melva says:

    Addison is so intense in her task! Gotta love the uncles who can get the kids going. Sorry, you did not get to the longarm. Winter is always a crap shoot but hopefully, you will get to schedule another day soon. You will like the black batting – it’s super when you have black fabric!

  10. Wendy says:

    That Addison – she’s going to be a force to be reckoned with – haha! She was not going to let him win. Hope you are feeling better!

  11. Mary says:

    You are brave to even walk into Chuck E Cheese. It’s just too crazy for me, but obviously the kids loved it! It’s definitely hard to make out of town plans during the winter months. Can’t wait to hear more about your long arming adventures down the road.
