To-Do Tuesday #239 Weekly Update

Join us today for the 239th weekly To-Do Tuesday list and update. Gladys Taber wrote, “Contentment is a list with half of it crossed off.” We are joining Linda as the host of the To-Do Tuesday linky party. She is doing a fabulous job and we thank her for that!

To-Do for the week of January 4th through 10th:

  1. Celebrate Addison’s birthday! √ Done
  2. Enjoy the launch of the second annual SAHRR√ Done
  3. Starting working on a quilt for Colt – √ Done

To Do #1

Is there ever too much celebration for a three-year-old’s birthday? We don’t think so. Since Addison’s birthday fell during the workweek, we had a small celebration on Saturday morning. That gave us a chance to give Addi our birthday gifts and sing the birthday song one more time. It never gets old, plus it’s another chance to blow out candles. Our littles need all the practice they can get with that!

To-Do #2

Yesterday was the official launch party for the Stay At Home Round Robin 2022 (SAHRR). The very first step is to choose your center block which will be enhanced with prompts for the next six rounds. Check out the details and link up your choice at Quilting Gail’s website if you’d like!

Just seeing that happy yellow fabric again makes me smile. We may need to add something creative to the center before we finish!

To-Do #3

New year, new project . . . isn’t that how the saying goes? What? That’s not a saying . . . well, it certainly should be. An appliqué project, at that, for our sweet pea Colty. He is a master already at everything active – jumping, throwing, galloping, running. There’s not a slow bone in his body anywhere! Sue found this inspiration piece on Pinterest (where else?!!) and we made just a few additions or modifications to the concept.

We plan to include soccer, football, baseball, basketball, and golf as a nod to his dad’s love of the game. Colt already plays indoor basketball and has a fairly good arm for a young man who isn’t two yet. We have the first soccer ball made but I had some challenges marking out the hexagon shapes that are formed in the white areas. Hopefully, Colty won’t question why his soccer ball has pie-shaped areas. HAHA! Good thing there are five other soccer balls to practice on – I might just get it straight by the last one.

To-Do for the week of January 11th through 17th:

  1. Work on Round One prompt for the SAHRR from Anja
  2. Do more appliqué blocks for Colty’s quilt – there are a total of 30 in all
  3. That’s it – a short, stress-free list!

    Addi’s cake is WOW! She is such a cutie. Colty’s soccer balls look great, that one will be fun. Joy suggested I might try something creative in the center of my SAHRR block, so I’ll be watching to see what you might do with yours.
    Thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday!

    Colt’s quilt looks like another winner (very appropriate description considering the sports motifs!). Looking forward to joining you with this year’s SAHRR.

  3. Vicki in MN says:

    Wow you have your work cut out for you with all that applique, but what a fun quilt Colt will have in the end. What a cute cake for Addi’s birthday!

  4. That is one cool soccer ball you made! Colt will love his quilt! I can’t believe Addi is already 3~her cake was fantastic looking too! I’m not doing the Round Robin this year, going to keep plugging away at my snowball quilt but I do love to see everyone else’s projects! Have a safe and happy week!

  5. That’s going to be a great project. Your soccer ball turned out great.

  6. Hi Roseanne. What a fun week you had; sweet Addison’s birthday and a fun new quilt for Colton. Add to that the SAHRR! Life can’t get much better, can it?

  7. Chrisknits says:

    How cute is that face!!! She is just a darling. Colt is going to love his quilt!!! He won’t even notice the odd shapes.

  8. Oh that cake is just gorgeous. The soccer ball looks great, when I looked at it I thought – soccer ball! So it’s very real. Going to look a great quilt.

  9. Rochelle Summers says:

    So happy to see those photos of Addi’s BD. What an awesome cake. Celebrations should last all month! Especially as we get older and can stretch out the BD lunches! I love that star and am interested in that last comment about adding something to it. Hmm, time will tell. The soccer ball is a nice beginning to the quilt. I like the way you are not over committing yourself this week. Don’t want you to get bummed out too soon into the year.

  10. What a fun, sporty quilt for Colt! And that birthday cake…wow! 🙂

  11. Cheree Hull says:

    Oh, that cake is perfect! And so is the soccer ball–WOW! Great job!

  12. That soccer ball is amazing, Roseanne! My mind can’t quite grasp how you put that together. Perfect quilt for Colt! Glad Addi had a good birthday, too!

  13. Kathleen McCormick says:

    Colt’s quilt will be fun to watch coming together. Addison is such a sweet little 3 year old! Love the serious but playful expression staring at those candles. HBD Addison!

  14. Wendy Tuma says:

    I’m pretty impressed with that soccer ball. Not sure I’d tackle that one, but you hit it outta the park (or at least an inside homerun). Addi looks so sweet, enjoying her candles and cake! Birthdays should be week long celebrations, I think!
