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. Some Progress

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

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. Some Progress

5. Try to get away to the studio for a few days to get some quilts finished on my longarm. I’ve been back and forth and just getting ready to head out again.

6. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿 No luck! Sam and I were very busy helping my friend with their holiday decorating. I forgot to count to see if we got all 27 trees up 😉

It was too cold to take pictures of the outdoor decorations when we finished. ⛄️

This week’s goals:

For the rest of this month my goals are very slim. I plan on enjoying the decorations at the studio and enjoy the scenery while travelling between studio and home. In between I’d like to finalize my pattern with these pretty 2 colour blocks from leftovers and get the pattern written. I have added a few more blocks to the piles so it should work out. 😉

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 – 320/353
  • This 1 week period– 4/7
  • Year To Date – 324/360

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.

This is my last ToDo Tuesday post for the year. I did have a year filled with creating, adventures, misadventures and some new experiences. These past two years of not seeing my family except on line hit me hard. I found myself feeling very low by October and it has taken me until recently to feel like my feet are back under me. I ended my year spending time with my DH and my best friends of over 30 years in turn and can only say that I’m so happy to have some time with people I love.

I do enjoy sharing some of your time when you read my posts and reply to each comment. Sending you all my best wishes for a Happy, Healthy New Year. May 2022 be a year where we can finally get a grasp on this pandemic and have a year of prosperity and finding our new normal lives filled with happy times with family and friends. 🎄⛄️😉 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.

  1. I’m still in awe of your PHD list for 2021, I’ll have to check out your list for 2022. You did a lot of holiday decorating, getting in stitching time with all of that had to be a challenge. Thank you for being a regular participant at the 15 minutes to stitch this year. I hope you play along next year. Have a very happy New Year’s!

    1. Hi Kate. Be prepared when you see my 2022 list to be shocked. It’s bad 😃. Helping my friends do their decorating was fun. It’s been a long while since I did any. Thank you for hosting 15 minutes to stitch. It sure helps keep me motivated. Happy New Year to you as well 🥂

    1. Thank you Wendy. It was fun to help my friends with the decorating and hear the stories of the ornaments. Some of them belonged to my friends great grandparents or were souvenirs on special trips. As you can see some trees are tiny and some are large. Even the bedrooms have trees and washrooms are decorated! Next week I might even have some quality time with my longarm. Happy New Year. 🍾

    1. Hi Gail. Don’t my friends have a wonderful collection of sentimental treasures? I didn’t brave the outdoors to get photos because, well the deep freeze you know 😉. I confess that I used to be as bad, but my DH is a Grinch and the whole Christmas scene makes him cranky. 😢Happy New Year. 🥂🍾


  2. I love seeing your Christmas trees! Is your studio very far away? My husband and I dream about winning the lottery so we can buy a dream house that has enough rooms for a shop for him and a studio for me – lol! I hope you are soon able to see your family. We feel lucky to live in Texas where we have not been forced us to stay isolated, so I really feel for you.
    Thank you for linking with To Do Tuesday. I’ve really enjoyed getting to “know” you!

    1. Linda I love getting to know you as well. I’m so glad you are hosting the linky so I met you. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I can only keep my fingers crossed you will win that lottery. My longarm is 5 hours away at my best friend’s house. They are the ones who I helped decorate this year since they both have health issues. The drive back and forth passes through some of British Columbia’s prettiest country, including a short ferry ride so it is usually a pleasant drive unless there is adverse weather. Our isolation is necessary because my DH has MS so at risk with immunity issues. Happy New Year.
