Time To Solve Another Mystery

Time for another Bonnie Hunter mystery! This year the participation has grown to big numbers. I was able to get clue 1 started while away from home this weekend. I brought just a few of my mystery fabrics from home with me and used my DILs sewing machine and cutting tools.

Sewing om my DILs Slantomatic. 
It is a sweet machine. 
Look at my supervisor!

     Half Square Triangles using the Magic Eight method.

        Neatly trimmed HST's

        A few finished Broken Dishes Blocks.

     My Quality Assurance helper.

        Going to miss this boy.  "Norman"

        I was able to finish about 
     half the required blocks for step one.

       And I shopped on Small Business Saturday
        For a few more turquoise pieces and some
        Cute sewing themed fabric.

        Tomorrow / Monday we head home.

I really can't believe November is almost over. This week we will travel to San Diego to spend Thanksgiving with my son and DIL. Should be a nice visit. Won't be able to take my Grand Illusions mystery quilt fabrics so I won't get mine started til Monday....not a race right.  I have been invited to get together with friends on the Fridays after Thanksgiving and between Christmas to work together on our Mystery Quilts. That sounds like so much fun. I will miss not starting my mystery this year with my sisters as I have done the past two years. May need to FaceTime that day ! I will also miss not getting my moms Christmas tree decorated with my sisters this year.  That has been a tradition for several years past.

Alright enough words for now.. We did take a cruise earlier his month to celebrate my husbands birthday so time to share a few pics....

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I was at home last week with family. My mom passed away and so we have all been together carrying out her final wishes as she was laid to rest. One of the most difficult weeks of my life. So very greatful to be with my whole family.

And finally her mind, her body, and her soul are at peace.
