Mystery Monday Link Up and Design Wall Monday

What do you do after Christmas?
I sew. And sew and sew.
Did you know neutrals are my favorite color? 
How fun to spot my picture as part of Bonnie's collage!!

First I needed to finished clue #5 for Good Fortune.
I really like making this block.
I can't wait to see where it lives in this quilt.

I learned something while removing pages from my phone book.
I didn't knew there was a reverse directory in it. 
I had to look for my own phone number.

Bonnie suggests only working on 2 pages at a time.
I wanted to try 3 just for the heck of it.
It blew up in my face pretty fast.
2 pages sewn together meant the tape and the scalpel seam ripper came out.
That blade wouldn't cut melted butter so it had to be changed.
I love the removable Scotch tape for paper repair.
It doesn't get sticky and gunky when it's ironed.
Of course I don't apply the iron to the tape, 
only to the fabric.  

Like everyone else that is working on Good Fortune,
I cannot wait for the next clue. 

Next up this week will be cutting into some of these lovely sweater knits. 
I figure if I cut it out, it will get sewn up faster.
Pieces have been matched to the patterns.
Crossing my fingers for a new top or 2 this week. 

See what others are working on at
