To-Do Tuesday #76

Good morning!  I'm checking in today with my weekly to-do list and linking up with Roseanne and friends for the To-Do Tuesday linky party at Home Sewn By Us.   

My book club met (on Zoom) yesterday, and I finished the book just in time!  It was a good book - The Dressmaker's Gift, by Fiona Valpy.   If you like WWII historical fiction, you might like this author.  I'm planning to read more of her books!

Other items on my to-do list from last week included:


So, going on this coming week's to-do list:
  • More with yellow.  I have an idea for a Table Scraps project - starting with some 9 patch blocks like this one.

  • Finish Round 3 and work in Round 4 for the Stay at Home Round Robin.  This week's border prompt is a checkerboard prompt.  See more about that here.
  • And, maybe this week I'll get to that blog hop project!  😉

Yellow and Pink is a happy combo and your crumbs look great, Diann.
Pretty start for February Table scraps.

You are doing a great job keeping up with all the challenges -- far better than I am. I thought your tote was a worthy squirrel to chase.

Wow, you have been really accomplishing a lot!

It's looking very sunshine-y over in your quilting room with all that pretty yellow! I made my color challenge block yesterday and really had to look for lemon yellow fabric. I started watching the movie from that book, but didn't like it. Maybe the book would be better.

I have my Table Scraps piece done. I had to switch gears when my first idea was turning out too big for the space I planned to use it. It will now be a perfect fit for a small round table. I may add some more FMQ, but it can be used as is for now. I keep finding so many new ideas I want to pursue. I need to buckle done, make a list, and stick to it. Crazy, I know.

Lovely scrappy blocks, pretty colors. Your squirrel is a good one, what a beautiful bag, plus a clever idea! I love your start of the table scraps project, promising!

Your yellows look so bright and pretty - guess I need to at least pull out my scrap bins just to look at them! I like that nine-patch block, fun to see what you will do with it.

Hi again, Diann! Aha! A squirrel project - those just keep nibbling away at us until we succumb, don't they?! I love all the yellow featured in your post but especially that in the 9-patch block. Pale yet vibrant. Thank you again for linking up! ~smile~ Roseanne

Excited to see what you are cooking up for the February Table Scraps Link Party! Thanks for the reminder... I need to go schedule it. Have fun playing with all of those sunny YELLOW scrap projects, Diann!
