To-Do Tuesday #81

28 inches of snow in 24 hours adds a few extra to-dos to the list!  Specifically, shoveling out so we can get out of the house.  Here was our view Monday morning:

We were out twice on Sunday working on the snow, but more fell, so we started over again!  Monday we got the sidewalks done.  Today (Tuesday) maybe out to  the street?  We live on a cul de sac, so we have to be able to get from our driveway to the main section of the street! 

Meanwhile back in the sewing room, there's been progress on several projects!  
  • My Stay at Home Round Robin needed a little fixing before I could move it forward.  It only took looking at a photograph and about a week's time to notice the problem.  See down in the bottom right hand corner?
Oops!

Once I got that section fixed, I finished the pinwheels, hooked them together with spacer strips, and experimented with something for the sides.

I'll start building out to each corner next!

  • The blog hop quilt is quilted and binding ready to sew on!

  • My March Table Scraps project in green was finished up.  You can read more about that HERE.  I'm giving away all the leftover jelly roll strips from that project in case you're interested.
On this week's list:
  • Keep going on that SAHRR!
  • Bind the blog hop quilt and write up my post.  Check out Carol's post at Just Let Me Quilt with a list of all the bloggers who are participating.  My day is March 26th.
  • More with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month - green!
I'm checking in with Chris and friends at Chrisknits to share my to-do list for the week.  How's your week been?

I was wondering how much snow you got eventually. Your round robin quilt is very pretty.

There is a lot of snow out there, Diann! I haven't noticed the opps section before.
I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt for the blog hop.
Stay safe and warm.

I just showed my husband your snow photo. We are amazed. When we lived in Oklahoma the 2009 Christmas Eve blizzard brought us 14 inches of snow, so that is twice that. I can't imagine. Sorry I didn't even notice your SAHRR error - lol! Glad you got your quilting done for your blog hop.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

glad the error was fixed before you got on to the next section. So seeing as you live in a street off the main street how long does it take before it gets plowed or do you mean it never gets plowed - if that is the case? That is a lot of snow - thankfully at this time of year one can assume it will melt fast.

That's so much snow! Glad you are all safe and have power! Your SAHRR quilt looks fantastic! Have a safe and happy week Diann!

I've been thinking of all my Colorado friends, hoping you all were prepared for the onslaught. Glad you have a nice hobby to keep you occupied. (I was going to say "out of trouble" but I knew that would be a lie ...)

Carole @ From My Carolina Home said...

Wow, that is a lot of snow! When it snows like that here, we just hunker down until it melts off. On our steep mountain, the angle and length of the driveway down to the main road is too much to shovel, and too steep for a bobcat.

Susie H said...

I love snow but only up to about 8". 28"? Ridiculous! The good thing about living in Colorado is it doesn't last as long as say Chicago, Cleveland, Syracuse, etc. Remember to take it easy while shoveling. Don't hurt yourself. Baby steps when it comes to removing that much snow. Your SAHRR is really shaping up!

Oh the snow looks beautiful!!! I'm not quite as jealous tho now that it's March and yeah, that's a lot of snow. My daughter was supposed to fly into Denver this past weekend. When they started predicting all the snow she was getting really excited but I warned her--sure enough, everything got cancelled. At least she wasn't driving and dealing with getting stopped out in western KS which happens a lot when anyone heads that way. I heard that I-70 is closed at Hays. Well, anyhoo, looks like great sewing weather at least! Hopefully it won't hang around too long this time. The projects are looking great--glad you found the ooops when you did (looks like something I would do for sure!).

I thought about you and Lee Anna and the family we have in storm Xylia’s path! Up here on the edge, we got “diddley”, but today black ice. All roads west and north are closed and one south for 49 miles too, Guess I have lots to do! I still think your SAHRR is going to be fabulous! I’m so excited to see your Salt and Sand Blog Hop entry!
Good luck digging out! Be careful!

Rebecca Grace said...

Your SAHRR just keeps getting better and better! And WOW is all I have to say about all that snow. It's pouring down rain this morning in North Carolina, and I'm about to drive off with my son to visit a college in South Carolina. Here I was complaining that MY weather was unsuitable for today's plans... At least I'm not snowed in! Happy quilting to you!

Bonnie said...

So you say there is a street out there? Amazing. I hope that was the last snow of the season for you... but probably not. Good catch on the SAHRR piece. It is looking great. I like how you handled the extra rows with so much creativity. I'm popping back to see your Table Scraps for March.

Vicki in MN said...

I thought about you when we saw how much Denver got!

Mari said...

Twenty eight inches! Stay in and sew! :)

The Joyful Quilter said...

Hoping you find time to sew with all the snow work to do!! Looking forward to seeing your Hop project next week, Diann.

piecefulwendy said...

Look at that lovely blanket of snow - it's so pretty, but oh so heavy to shovel. Take care, you two! I'm enjoying all the SAHRRs getting finished up - love the colors in yours!

MissPat said...

So is your area like LeeAnna's where they don't plow the roads? That seems ridiculous in Colorado. Lucky that you were able to pick up your repaired sewing machine before the storm.

It looks so pretty and tranquil, and VERY COLD!! LOL. Love the progress you have going on, good luck with this week's list. Thanks for linking up today!

Hi Diann! Holy moly. 28 inches of snow. Egad, that is a LOT of snow in one 24-hour period. I'm glad you didn't lose power or anything. Good job fixing your SAHRR piece. I never would have noticed it, I'm certain. Not until it was quilted! Here's to a very slow warm-up to melt all of that snow. ~smile~ Roseanne

Wow! That's a lot of snow. Be Safe!

Kate said...

I wondered how you were faring this weekend when I heard your state was in for a doosy of a snow storm. That is a lot of snow! Your SAHRR is coming together beautifully. Looking forward to seeing the final additions. Good luck with your to do list this week.

Barb N said...

You guys really got blasted! Has it melted yet? That will be a mess when it does. Your Round Robin quilt is coming along nicely, even with the oops! At least you spotted it soon enough to fix it. That's always a good thing.
