To-Do Tuesday #2 Weekly Update

Join us today for the weekly To-Do Tuesday list #2 and update. Linda hosts the To-Do Tuesday linky party and we thank you so much, Linda! Many of our friends join in and share their ongoing projects and recent finishes. Be sure to check it out.

Last week’s To-Do for November 8th through 14th:

  1. Finish the Regatta table runner binding
  2. One limit list for a stress-free week

To-Do #1

The Regatta table runner is complete! Can I get a woohoo?!! The pattern was shared by Denise at For the Love of Geese. While it’s no longer the season for a need for this table runner, I have enjoyed sewing the binding by hand. I forgot how relaxing it is at the end of the day!

This is the first piece of many planned for our Etsy shop. Miraculously, we sold two items from our shop recently. Rather than renew the few listings, I put our shop “on vacation.” Once we have a few more items to list and have a chance to take some decent pictures, we’ll take the shop off of vacay mode.

To-Do Newsy News

Our friend, Carol, recently purchased a long arm. How exciting is that?!! Not only is it exciting for her, but Sue and I are going to go play and quilt for a whole day later this month. We MIGHT just get something quilted and off the back of the visitor’s chair in our sewing room. If we had a visitor, they wouldn’t feel very welcome because the chair is piled with stuff. Fabric with no plan but I was absolutely certain that we needed it, so I ordered/bought it. You know how it is, right?? We NEEDED that cute fabric.

We are going to bring four unquilted tops with us to potentially work on. The first is Beothuk, and the second is Ripples. Both are from 2019 and have been neglected due to quilter uncertainty. That quilter would be me, and the uncertainty is that I didn’t know how to quilt them. I still don’t but they are on the docket to be finished.

Another quilt that may be finished during our quilting extravaganza is the 2020 Monthly Color Block. The picture doesn’t do it justice as the black background makes all of those jewel tones really pop. I’ll bet you can guess just how long that has been hanging around. Finally, our most recent finish is from 2021 and is called Pieces from the Past. Melva Nolan hosted a quilt-along, and we had such fun making this quilt. I think the photo might be upside-down. Oops!

To-Do More Newsy News!

Guess what is just nine short weeks away?! Did you guess the Stay At Home Round Robin 2023? If you did, you are correct. Six quilt bloggers will share one weekly round as a suggestion for you to consider. It kicks off on Monday, January 16, with each of us sharing our center block to build upon. Each Monday thereafter a new friend will share their suggestion along with tips and tricks. The final parade is slated for March 13th. Each week will feature a linky party and we all hope you join us! It’s nine quick weeks of round-robin fun and we have a unique project in mind. We’ll see together if it turns out like I’m picturing it. ~smile~

To-Do More, More Newsy News – The Last of It

This Accuquilt Go! has found a new home in our sewing room. Sue, of course, said, WHERE?? Don’t fret – I found space on my sewing table. I even cut out a few squares from some scrap fabric, and a few half-square triangle pieces. Sweet! Our friend, Carol (same one as above!), suggested I look on Facebook Marketplace. I did, and I bought it, and I picked it up. That website is just as addicting as eBay or Instagram or Pinterest. There are all kinds of items available, both near and far. My plan is to be a cutting fool and get rid of my stacks of scraps that are out of hand!

To-Do for the week of November 15th through 21st:

  1. Nothing special as Sue is having eye #2 done this week.
  2. One Zero limit list for a stress-free week
  3. Maybe some sewing will happen while she’s napping?!

    You’ve got some great quilts picked to get finished. Hope Sue’s eye surgery went well and she’s recovering well. Wishing you a low stress weekend.

  2. Catching up, Roseanne! So happy Sue’s surgery went well. Your table runner is cute and will be ready for summer and though it’s just started getting cool here, the way time is flying you will be using it before you know it! You are going to LOVE your AccuQuilt cutter! Mine is used a LOT!! Have fun playing with the longarm. I think you will love it too…and may never want to quilt on a domestic machine again! LOL Have a great week!

  3. Kate says:

    Congrats on the finish! You’ve got some great candidates pulled for your quilting marathon. It’s hard to pick a favorite because all 4 turned out beautifully. Hope Sue’s eye surgery goes well. Have a low stress week.

  4. Chriskntis says:

    You will have so much fun quilting!!! Just let you mind wander and meander all over the surface! Best wishes to Sue on her eye, take good care of her.

  5. Glad you finished that runner this week! I agree, sewing binding is a nice end-of-the-day activity. Good luck with your Etsy shop, too! Sounds so great to have a friend with a longarm who would like to share – I also have multiple quilt tops that need to be quilted. Sending good thoughts for Sue tomorrow!

  6. Linda says:

    I’ll be thinking of Sue tomorrow! If I came into your sewing room, I’d just picked up the stuff on the chair, plop myself down, and put the stuff on my lap. 😉 I am so excited for you about the friend with the longarm AND about your Accuquilt! I am still not using mine, but Karen has assured me I will get into it. I am nodding my head about “quilter uncertainty” I get it. Your quilts are just gorgeous! I really love that Pieces of the Past one. Regatta looks beautiful! Thank you for sharing your finish with us at To Do Tuesday!

  7. Bonnie in Va says:

    I like the no stress list. Have fun with the long arm. Think about whether you want to do one in dark thread as one of your firsts as it is hard to see dark thread on a dark quilt. Yea for the sales! Hope the surgery goes well. BTW — your link on Linda’s linky party might not be working. It wouldn’t open for me.

  8. Oh my what a big quilting week. An accquilt , go you. I’d never get one because I don’t want anything more to take up room though! How fun to have a go on a long arm with your long awaiting quilt tops. I particularly love the Ripples one. How you can even sit down in the evening and do anything is beyond me because when I read about the cataracts episode and how early you get up, well!!

  9. What fun to get to use a friend’s longarm! I’m rooting for the 2020 block of the month one with the jewel tones on black to get quilted first. I still love that quilt to death! Good idea to put Etsy on vacay – helps with the ZERO limit list adherence!

  10. Gail Sheppard says:

    I hope that Sue’s surgery goes smoothly!!!
    How fun to anticipate quilting several quilts on a long arm!!!
    You will LOVE your Accuquilt! I know I do!
    Have a great “Zero” week!

  11. Kathleen McCormick says:

    Congrats on the table runner finish and the recent Etsy sales! I love that you will be longarming – it is a nice way to get bigger pieces done quicker. But most of all, good luck to Sue and you with the surgery this week, both of you will be in my prayers.

  12. Rochelle Summers says:

    Wow Roseanne! I think you are coming to life again. I really like that you can put your Etsy shop on vacation. Isn’t it wonderful that customers are stopping by to buy!? And the Regatta table runner is the perfect thing to start with. Having friends that invite you over for a quilting day is so wonderful! I hope you have fun and get a lot accomplished. Is this a computer driven longarm? And that AccuQuilt Go cutter….is it the electric model? I hope you get lots of use out of it. I hope Sue’s surgery goes as well as the first and I like that you are planning on NO STRESS!! Have a great week. Hugs to you both.

  13. Nanette says:

    I love all 4 of the quilts – they are so bright and pretty! The colors really stand out on all 4. Anxious to see how you quilt them! Hugs

  14. Wendy says:

    Oh boy! Roseanne and Sue are back, and they have an AccuQuilt – look out, everyone! Hahaha – I can’t wait to see what you create. Those two quilts are going to be even prettier with quilting, so I look forward to seeing what you do!

  15. Vicki in MN says:

    Wow you are full of fun news, a longarm friend and an accuquilt! Congrats on getting the accuquilt-were you able to snag some dies with it then? Looking forward to seeing how you like the longarm process., I predict loads of fun! And then great news for your Etsy shop as you are building up supplies, congrats on the recent sales.
