Monday in Blogland

Design Wall Monday and Quiltville Mystery Monday on the same day! How great is that!!!

I wait all year long for Quiltville Mystery/Black Friday.
Clue 1 is released and I sew and sew and sew.
Expect this year.
This year I had the flu so I watched from the sidelines.

But I pulled out my bin of 2" strips and knew I would be OK.
My friend Trina and I have been swapping 2" strips for quite a while
so I have some really fun strips and lots of variety.
We never know when the other one will hand over a little bag of new strips.

Saturday I sewed strips together.
I cut my long strips in to smaller pieces for variety.
I sewed and sewed and sewed.
(That's a nod to a special little girl as she talks about her Auntie 
who is very busy as she sews and sews and sews.)

After many breaks, I ended the day with 60 fun four patches.
Sunday was more productive with more four patch fun..
I now only have a few more to press and I can call step 1 complete.
En Provence is off to a great start!

All information for this mystery is available at the top of the 
Quiltville blog page in it's on tab section..

It's a fun link up day today.
Bring on the coffee...I've got some reading to do this morning.

Sewing always makes us feel better! Nice selection of Neutrals. Mine are not done yet. To much other fun in my world! It is a Great Day in Blogland!!!!

Nice selection of neutrals. Hang in there - you'll feel better soon. At least that's what I keep telling myself. I'm on my second go-round of respiratory bugs since early October.
