Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #95

I’ll be linking up with To-Do Tuesday which is being hosted by Linda from Texas Quilt Gal. Every week I find myself 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. I’ve started assembling a top now. 😄

This started as a bag of donated strips and leftover bits from Denise B. So much fun to play with such bright, happy fabrics. 😉

2. Keep sewing my pieces for my EPP projects. I have started piecing the little bits together for some blocks; just playing for now! 😄

3. Keep up with the new prompt for the SAHRR. This round was a choice of Appliqué or Rail Fence Blocks. 😉

4. Finish cleaning up my scrap bin and getting everything cut up and put in my scrap savers bins. Done. All that’s in the bin is a bag of leftover strips and strings. 😄

5. Write my pattern for “Boxed” since I have had several requests for it. Just couldn’t concentrate with everything going on in Ottawa and with my family and friends the past few weeks. 😳

6. See if I can come up with an idea for the next PQ Challenge when it comes out on the 13th. Done and posted! 😄

7. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿 This week was filled with distractions as I tried to keep myself busy, trying not to watch the news. 😢

It was so distracting to see the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa (and several other cities), the police called in en masse, and the Government of Canada enacting the Emergency Measures Act. Now the protesters are attempting to set up in other Provinces. My granddaughter has her biopsy scheduled for next Friday. K. had another treatment getting fluids drained from his lungs. Thank you to all for your messages and prayers.

This week’s goals:

1. Start a new scrappy leader/ender project. (My header photo might contain a hint 😉).

2. Keep working on my EPP projects.

3. Keep up with the new prompt for the SAHRR.

4. Write my pattern for “Boxed” since I have had several requests for it.

5. Get ready for my Quilting Group to start meeting on a small scale this next weekend. I have 2 days scheduled at the Guild to clean and get set up. We have a rug hooking workshop the day before my Quilting Day. So much fun to look forward to starting to see people again 🤗

6. Finish my flimsy from my Leader/Ender scrappy pieces.

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

Stitchin’ Time

Kate from Kates Life in Pieces hosts a weekly linky party to help us keep to our goals of stitching every day.

I’m trying for at least 30 minutes a day this year, but also want to at least spend 30 minutes a week tidying up and dealing with scraps.

  • January 31/31
  • this week 7/7
  • This month 20/20
  • Total: 51/51
  • Percentage =100%

To see how our blogging friends are doing check out Kate’s blog: Life in Pieces

Stash Report:

I like to link with Donna @ Quilt Paint Create to keep track of fabric in and out of my stash.

  • Fabric previous balance: 89 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 89 Yards

* my goal is to lessen my stash by 100 yards this year. I haven’t managed to actually figure out how much fabric I really have in my stash so it just seems to be reasonable to set a goal to continue working from my stash.

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

Quilting Gail is hosting her PHD in 2022 Challenge again this year. 😄

I do enjoy sharing some of your time when you read my posts and reply to each comment. 😄 Carol

Published by Carol Andrews

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. So sorry about all the stress. I am wondering if you are doing fancy forest? It is a fun pattern, I have a whole list of hints for doing Elizabeth Hartman patterns, let me know if you want it. Meanwhile, I hope you and yours are safe and can get to their appointments without worry. Will keep you in my prayers this week.

  2. Hi Carol! Please set aside the pattern writing of Boxed for now. It is something you should enjoy doing – sharing your lovely pattern with friends! The very last thing your friends want to do is to add to you stress. Let’s focus on what’s important. Your granddaughter’s biopsy, K’s fluid draining, and you having less stress. I’m on the prayers – you’ve got those in spades. The trucking protest is going to continue or stop whether you worry yourself to death. You have NO control over that. If you could just get DH to stop listening to the news 24/7, your blood pressure might be lowered. Thank heavens for the Guild distraction. You need to get out, laugh with friends, and forget about everything for just a little while. {{Hugs}} and more {{hugs}} for you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Wise words my friend. I’ll try to head them this week. I’m almost finished the second scrappy quilt top in less than a week. Fabric therapy helps since DH won’t stop watching the news. Thank you and hugs back to you. 🤗

  3. Well done with your list, great progress! The new scrappy project is going to be lovely. It’s nice to be able to gather, and I’m sure you will have a great time with the quilting group. Enjoy!
    Thank you for sharing and linking up. Hugs

  4. Sigh. It’s hard to ignore what’s happening! I would like it to all just go away! I, too, am trying to not focus on it!
    On another note! I love that your leader and ender is almost a flimsy!! They do work!
    I will pray for your granddaughter & her biopsy!
    Have fun at the rug hooking workshop! 🙂

    1. Thank you Gail. That leader ender project is now a finished flimsy and I’ve almost completed another. They definitely do finish up projects. It’s just crazier here so I’m keeping busy. Thank you for the prayers. No rug hooking workshop for me. The last thing I need is to start another craft. 😉


  5. I wish I had seen the round robin when it started, it would have been fun to join in on! Yours is looking beautiful! Sorry it’s been a tough time for you lately, will pray for you granddaughter and K… Your plans for the week look good, but take time for yourself too! Thanks for linking to Monday This And That! xx

  6. Awww Carol, hopefully you will find some mental peace this week. Maybe Sam making an appearance would be a good thing. 😉 I will pray for your granddaughter and her biopsy as well as K and the fluid drain.
    Thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday!

  7. At least you got in your stitching time each day and made some progress on your projects. I’m limiting my news consumption for a few days, it does get distracting and upsetting. Hope all the health issues are on their way to being resolved.

    1. Hi Kate. Stitching time does help with the stress as does an audiobook and my earbuds when DH is watching the news. K is doing much better and my GD is at the hospital right now 🤞🏻. Thank you for your comment. Hope you have a great day 😉
