Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #87

I’ll be linking up with To-Do Tuesday which is now hosted by Linda from Texas Quilt Gal! I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else is working on or have finished.

Last To-Do list:

1. Continue with my scrappy leader/ender project. No Progress

2. Keep sewing my pieces for my EPP projects. Some progress. 😄

I have almost 1/2 of the 1” hexies completed for one project. By New Year’s I should be close to being done this part and might get to start piecing the project. 😉

3. Get the interfacing on the tshirt pieces and start making the blocks for the memory quilt. No progress.

4. Finish my projects and blog posts for the next two blog hops. No Progress

5. Start putting together some quilts for the flood victims. I haven’t heard of anyone collecting quilts yet so I’ll have some time to put something together. No Progress

6. Try to get away to the studio for a few days to get some quilts finished on my longarm. I am back home and still dealing with after effects from the booster but should be heading back before K sees the specialist on Wednesday.

7. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿

This week’s goals:

For the rest of this month my goals are very limited. Finishing putting up the decorations with D is a priority and dealing with whatever comes next. I also plan on enjoying my time whether I am home, travelling or at the studio. Being with people you love is the best part of the holidays. I saw the following on Melva Loves Scraps blog recently and with her permission am sharing it here. This year especially it seems appropriate.

Stitchin’ Time

I’m trying for at least 15 minutes a day, but also want to at least spend 15 minutes tidying up and dealing with scraps.

  • Previous time – 317/346
  • This 1 week period– 3/7
  • Year To Date – 320/353

Some how I think I miscalculated my days, but considering the year we have had I’m doing a happy dance! Next year can only get better! 🤞🏻

Stash Report:

  • Fabric previous balance: 8 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 8 Yards

* my goal is to lessen my stash by 100 yards. 😅 Didn’t quite make it, but there’s always next year 😉

* any fabric used from the scrap bins, was gifted or a prize; doesn’t count as stash

Gail at Quilting Gail created and hosts the PHD in 2021 to keep us finishing those UFOS.
I do have 6 2021 projects that I am carrying in to 2022 but since they are planned WIP’s I’m happy. Of the 29 UFO’s that are going into 2022 only 4 still need piecing or for me to decide if I want them larger by adding borders. All of them will need to be quilted in the New Year 😢

This will possibly be my last ToDo Tuesday post for the year. I for one am not sad to see this year end. I can only hope you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with love, laughter, family time and good food. May 2022 bring you all the gifts of good health, happiness and prosperity. I do enjoy sharing some of your time when you read my posts and reply to each comment. 🎄⛄️😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  2. I have no doubt you’ll pick up the pace after the holidays. Even a little progress is something, right? I’m sitting here chuckling, thinking that you may find a piece of coal in your stocking from Sam since you won’t let her entice you with squirrels lately. Heehee.

  3. I loved that little list on Melva’s blog too, such truth in it. I hope you are feeling better and able to get back to your studio (and Sam watching from a respectful distance). Have a wonderful Christmas, Carol, and thank you for linking to To Do Tuesday!

  4. Good luck with your lists. The month between thanksgiving and Christmas seems to quicker and quicker each year. Am thinking of doing an RSC quilt this year, and also signed up for Mel’s scrapbusting….to see what I can do. Thinking I really need to cut back on some of my stash, again. Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Hi Kathleen. Scrapbusting and shopping your stash are great goals. I’m doing the same again next year (isn’t it wonderful to know we have the hope of a new year coming?).Merry Christmas to you and yours 🎄


  5. Hope you were able to work in lots of those suggestions for your holiday. Your PHD report looks amazing, so even if you didn’t meet your own expectations in other areas, give yourself a big pat on the back for that one! Hope you had an amazing holiday.
