Design Wall Monday


Tis the season to listen to Christmas music over the hum of the sewing machine.  Just when you think the projects are complete, you see something really cool in Blogland....  And that delays your progress on Orca Bay just a little bit farther, if ya know what I mean!

I did spend some quality time listening to my audio books and Christmas music.  As of last night, I need to make 24 more red sting blocks and start sewing on part 5. I cut a bunch of half square triangles while listening to my book, thinking it was almost finished~it wasn't, so step 5 is started~and the book completed later in the day. I'm quite excited to see how the quilt is put together.  I do believe we are not finished making blocks though.  That Bonnie is very tricky when it comes to her mysteries!!!  I won't even try to figure it out, I'll just wait for the clues.

This morning will be spent cruising Blogland through Design Wall Monday links at Patchwork Times and Mystery Monday Link Up at Quiltville.  And finishing up the last of the gifts!!!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas or a Happy whatever you celebrate.

Merry Christmas to YOU! The String Blocks keep me from starting the ORCA. And of course the fact that I'm still recovering. No sewing fro me. I guess I could do Like Kathy in Canada and make that part a solid piece cut in Half.

Love your RED! So Christmassy! I'll be out of town 3 days this week (with no sewing machine!) so I had to get my #5 done over the weekend--whew!

Like how your blocks are coming along! Maybe it is due to the season but mine have a decidedly Christmas-y look to them too!

Your blocks are looking great and I like all the different prints!

I believe you are correct...that we are not finished cutting for more block components. Yours are looking great so far.

Way to go-love the reds too.
Merry, Merry Christmas to you and your gang too!

The guessing is what makes it fun, if only I weren't always wrong. The colors look fabulous though regardless of how they end up being put together.

Busy, busy.....happy, happy. Merry Christmas to you, too.

your red blocks are looking great. I like to watch Christmas movies and sew. The movies are really just to keep me company.

You're having fun keeping up with the clues--that seems to be enough! I'm lousy at guessing what is next and agree that Bonnie will trip you up to keep the mystery going :) Happy Holidays!

I too love sewing along to either music or audio books. And, if I'm home alone with music, I can sing along at the top of my voice, and not care who hears. I love your red strings, but I'm still holding out on doing them.

Your blocks are great. I am just printing off the clues for now. Love all of your red fabrics.
