To – Do Tuesday Linky Party #1

Welcome to my first link up post for To-Do Tuesday! I’d like to start by wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year. I hope 2023 will be golden for all of us and can admit that I am not sad to see the end of 2022!

I first joined the bloggers who found To Do Tuesday to be a great way to keep my projects progressing a couple of years back when it was hosted by Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us. Recently the amazing Linda from Texas Quilt Gal has been hosting the party, but needed to step back so I volunteered to give it a shot. Thank you to all of the great hosts who have gone before me. I can only hope to do as good a job as they did!

Had to share the cute photo Linda posted of us contracting the turning over of TDT from her to me! I loved it and Linda’s sense of humour, 🤗

Linda had some history on the To Do Tuesday Linkup so I borrowed it from her wonderful post last week:

“Roseanne from Home Sewn By Us and Sharon from Five Shadows – Sew. Stitch. Smile. were kind enough to give me some background on the history of To Do Tuesday. This weekly linkup was first hosted by Christine at Stitch All The Things. Sharon recalled that Christine previously had some kind of “sewing room tools” linkup prior to the To Do Tuesday weekly party. In 2019 Roseanne assumed TDT hosting until 2021 when Chris of Chris Knits volunteered. We thank them both for their weekly inspiration and fun posts! I started hosting in 2021, and now lovely Carol will become a part of TDT history!”

I really must say a huge thank you to Roseanne of Home Sewn By Us for the tutoring on creating a linky party! 😁

All I can say is I’m honoured to be part of this group and I know I’ve got big shoes to fill. Thank you to all who have gone before. 🤗

Here are the details for linking up:

  • This linky party is for any project – It can be in-progress or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features one of your projects.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. There will be a linky party available every week!
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following or commenting on my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

It is now your turn to share what you are working on or have finished.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Thank you in advance for joining up with all of us! 🤗 Carol

ps. Just remember as we start another year, any time spent sewing is good time. It feeds our souls, brings comfort and joy to both the maker and the recipient, and keeps our economies moving. 😉

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. Thank you Wendy. It’s been a bit of a learning curve adding the party but Roseanne helped a lot. I’m enjoying reading the comments and now that I’m home I can go see what everyone is doing tomorrow. 😉

  2. Hi Carol! Thanks so much for taking over TDT! I find it so very helpful, and the camaraderie with other friends and bloggers is fun, too. Of course, that often leads to squirrel projects . . . but that’s the risk you take. HAHA! You know you can always reach out if you need help!! Always. {{Hugs}} a bunch! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you for taking the time to let me know there was a glitch. I’m still trying to figure out why Blogger won’t allow me to comment and why Google wants me to log in then says I can’t post a comment. Technology drives me crazy some days. 😉. Good luck this week. Happy sewing. 😉


  4. Thank you Carol, for being the new host of To-Do Tuesday. I enjoyed reading about the history of the linky party. I really like your reminder about how sewing feeds our souls and brings comfort and joy to the maker and recipient and keeps our economies moving. I have definitely done my part to keep our economies moving, lol!

    1. Thank you. I am so glad you enjoyed reading my post. I think all of us who craft things do our part to keep our economies moving; sometimes more than we should. I really learned last year that sewing does feed my soul and brought me so much comfort so I thought I’d share my deep thoughts 😉
