To-Do Tuesday #3 Weekly Update

Join us today for the weekly To-Do Tuesday list #3 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.

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

  1. Nothing special – Sue’s second eye cataract surgery
  2. One limit list for a stress-free week

To-Do #1

Nothing special but a project that has been hanging on the design wall for months is finally to the need-to-be-quilted point. These half-hexagon pieces are leftovers from a Hexagon baby quilt that we made in the spring of 2020. We were playing around with the placement of the extra pieces when Nicole saw them and fell in love. She went to work, trying to use as many as she could to form two separate runners. As you can see, she was successful in forming one long island runner (yet to be trimmed) and a smaller table topper with a border added.

I worked on these while Sue was napping after surgery. We’re thrilled to have this project moving forward and OFF the design wall. Next up is finding a backing, layering, and then quilting. The design wall needs to be cleared for a quilt for Chase!

To-Do Extra

Orange ombre spider web fabric that sparkles was fun to work on! While the season has gone past, we have a good jump start for next year. Once they are quilted they will eventually be listed in our Etsy shop. The first of many, I hope! Nicole saw this in progress and squealed. Perhaps one isn’t for the shop?!!

To-Do Extra Extra

We snuck in one additional finish this weekend. They, as there are two hot/cold wraps, were totally off-the-cuff or drop-everything-and-make-them moments. Quick and easy with all the details in yesterday’s post. For Colty and his Dada.

To-Do Stay-At-Home Round Robin

The Stay-At-Home Round Robin 2023 is right around the corner. Come January 16, 2023, six quilt blogger friends will share one weekly round as a suggestion for you to consider. On Monday, January 16, each of us will share the center blocks that we will build upon. Every Monday thereafter a different friend will share their suggestion for the round along with tips and tricks. The final parade is slated for March 13th. We’ll have a weekly linky party. It’s nine quick weeks of round-robin festivities. Sue and I have a unique project in mind. I wonder if it will turn out like I’m envisioning it. ~smile~

To-Do for the week of November 22nd through 28th:

  • Quilting extravaganza with our friend, Carol (CANNOT WAIT!!)
  • Count our blessings spending time with family
  • Low-stress motto continues!

“All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go.” We’re not leaving on a jet plane! Friday we are driving to Carol’s home regardless of the weather.

    Oh that retreat sounds fun! Can’t wait for the Round Robin – wish it could be in person. 🙂 Is Sue overwhelmed with all the light and color she can see now? I think about her every day and hope she really notices a difference in her sight. The table runner and topper are beautiful, such pretty fabrics. Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!

    Rosanne, I am trying to read the post on my iPad and there is an advertisement coming up in the middle of your post. Not sure why. Wanted to send you a picture, but do not have your email. Send me an email and I will reply back with the picture. Now on my iPhone the post is fine. Gremlins. Hugs have a wonderful day with family. Hugs

    Wow! For someone who has a one item/no stress list you got so much done! Hope Sue is doing well. The cataract surgery is such a blessing when you can see and actually view the colours.

    The Halloween toppers are super cute! Is it just me, or is there not a link to your Etsy shop on your side bars?
    Have a wonderful retreat and Thanksgiving! 🙂

  12. Rochelle Summers says:

    Wow!! You’ve been busy…and still keeping it low stress, I think. I know those 1/2 hexis have been hanging around for awhile, but they really are looking good. Love the Halloween toppers. I really love that you are packed and ready to go to your mini quilt retreat!! I wish you much fun with your friend Carol. And enjoy those littles as well as the rest of the family on Thanksgiving. Hugs.

    That Halloween topper is so cute! I definitely think you need to make one (more?) for your shop! Oh, a sewing retreat with friends! Fun fun fun! Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family – hug those littles for me!

  16. Vicki in MN says:

    Oh you might just have to make another of the Halloween toppers, I do think you should put one in your shop next year. Sounds like your Black Friday is going to be well spent, also sounds like you are spending the weekend perhaps at Carol’s house?
