And so we begin.....

I hope all had a very nice Thanksgiving. Yesterday the first step to the Bonnie Hunter Mystery was posted. The cutting has begun. My sister and I have just a few more triangles and side triangles yet to cut, and then she will bring up her new to her featherweight to begin the sewing. 

A few pics of what we are doing.....

Sisters' pieces all cut.

No slicing of fingers!

San Diego

Boy could I get use to this weather......

Time for me to head home today. I have had a nice long weekend visit with my son and DIL , but my visit has come to an end.....

Now I know I said I was going to pull from stash for the Celtic Solstice mystery coming up but I just couldn't resist a few pieces that I found at a few quilt shops down here ! Thank you DIL / chauffeur for taking me . 

I found a cute pattern for charity /baby quilts and a fun black and white stripe for binding too.

Guess I better get my bags packed. See ya later San Diego.....

Perfect Tote

I have had this collection of fabric for a while now. I bought it in the hopes that I would make a Weekender Travel Bag /Amy Butler with it.

and then I saw this...tote that uses quilt as you go panels for it and decided to make that instead.

I just love a good tote!

and so here is my version of it.

Maybe I will call it.....
Put a Bird on it!

Love the Blue/Green mix of colors.

and inside a professional finish with
zip pocket and slip pocket.
Think this will go with me today to San Diego.
off to see my kids.....

Pulling from the stash

Going through my stash today . Trying to find some bits for the Celtic Solstice  Mystery.....

This is what I found so far.

I think I will have enough of everything in the stash for the quilt top without having to buy anything.
Now that's a good feeling.
