Desigh Wall Monday, December 30, 2013.

This week I am working away on catching up with Bonnie Hunter's mystery, Celtic Solstice. If you have not played along with Bonnie on one of her mystery quilts, try it out. It starts the week of Thanksgiving and goes through the end of the year, with a new clue posted every Friday.
This year, has been a little tough for me to keep up, so I have many of the clues partially done. Below are parts of the different clues. I have also chosen different colors than Bonnie's. I am using Red-Gold-Purple-Green, instead of Orange-Yellow-Blue Green. I am also trying to use all fabrics from my stash, though I did need to purchase a bit more of the green and purple.

Clue 1 Finished!
Clue 2 Almost done!
Clue 3 Finished
Clue 4 These strips will be 120 4 patches.
Clue 5 was released last Friday and will use the half square triangles from clue 3 with the purple and neutral. Will try to catch up this week in time for this Friday's clue. Wish me luck!

Sunday Stash Report December 29, 2013

Happy Holiday's to All!
I had not realized how long it has been since my last post. My full-time job has kept me very busy for the last 6 weeks, and has not left much time for blogging or sewing.  But now that things have calmed down a bit, I can get back to both.

This will be the last stash report for the year. I do have a finish to report, my Seven Sisters quilt, which was started last January in a class with Marti Michell. I have not had too much time to hit any quilt shops, but did go yesterday to purchase a few more greens and purples for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt that I have been trying to catch a few minutes here and there to work on.
