Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #97

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. Keep playing with my leader/ender project. No progress

2. Get another EPP block pieced. No progress

3. Get my Shoo Fly Border on my SAHRR. No progress

4. Give myself permission to put writing Boxed Pattern on hold until my head is in a better space.

5. Finish the last border on my last Leader/Ender flimsy. No progress

6. Go to the studio to do my usual helping out, check on K and get some UFO’s quilted on the longarm unless the snow we have been getting for the past two days gets heavier. I did get to the studio and had some fun on the longarm finishing a quilt and doing a major repair job on a sentimental quilt. Then my world fell apart when our Clarke passed away so life has been in a holding pattern.

7. Can I come up with a project for the new Project Quilting Challenge? I did have a project planned but just couldn’t do it.

8. Start planning my next blog hop project for:

I have some ideas but will have to see which one will work with what I have on hand to work with.

9. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿 these last weeks Samantha knew just what I needed to keep me calm. Hand stitching for the win.

10. Keep calm and stay busy while we wait for two weeks to get the results from the four biopsies my granddaughter had done. 😳 Still waiting.

This week’s goals:

1. Monday take DH to a doctor’s appointment and the go to the Guild for a meeting and work party to clean and organize cupboards and inventory our supplies and equipment.

2. Keep working on my hand quilting project.

3. Work on my idea for my Wonderful World of Color Blog Hop project.

4. Take DH to get a biopsy done of a nasty looking mole on Thursday.

5. Plan my next trip to the studio to help K. and D. Get some things organized when he attends the Cancer Clinic appointments to deal with his diagnosis of Mesothelioma. They will be needing a lot of help and prayers to cope with this news and diagnosis.

6. Do whatever I need to to keep calm. I’m giving Samantha, my inner squirrel permission to distract me as she can to just keep going.

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.

Since my last To-Do List I can say I have still managed to keep up with my 15 minutes a day goal. For a few days it was stitching on the longarm and since then it has been hand stitching for the win.

  • January 31/31
  • February 28/28
  • this week 7/7
  • This month 13/13
  • Total: 72/72
  • Percentage =100%

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

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. Wishing I could give you real hugs instead of virtual ones. I’m glad you let Samantha into your room. I’m praying for good news about DH’s biopsy and good results for your granddaughters’ biopsies. Please let us know if there is anything I can do – you have my love and prayers.

  2. Hi Carol! I hope you give yourself permission to just be kind to yourself while Sam is giving you some calming influence. Between Clarke, K, and DH not to mention the biopsy news you need all the calming distractions you can get. Like Linda, I wish I could give you an in-person hug – a real, long one and then we could sit down and chat about anything and everything. I’ll continue holding you close in prayer. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Oh Carol, I’m with you too, I keep my fingers crossed for the news to come. Please let Sam distract you the soft and nice way, to let your mind escape in a lovely imaginary world. Take care, and I send you kisses (in my area in France it’s 2 kisses, one for each cheek) and hugs.

    1. Thank you Kathleen. Seems like Sam is pointing me in so many directions right now that I’m not actually doing anything. I keep reminding myself that Planning is an important part of our quilting life. In the meantime it’s hand stitching for the win.


  4. Sending virtual hugs your direction. Hope you’ve been able to find some solace in your stitching time. Fingers crossed that all the other health issues with family get resolved quickly and with good outcomes.
