The New To Me.....Green Machine

Once again I was able to sew with friends on Friday last week to work on the current Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I was able to get this step cut using my Christmas gift to my self......a Go cutter. I replaced my Baby with it and boy did it make short time of cutting 2 1/2 inch strips! Here are a few pics.

     My set up....just love that little Featherweight!

   My first two blocks for this weeks clue.

   Oh my stars... Such a cute little star / off track but
   So cute made by Joyce.

   Such a good little helper....

   This is Joyce's color way. Love that grey!

   And a shot of my clues so far.

   Cute little Broken Dishes unit!
   Wonder where it will be used!

   Another color way.

   And Joyce had shown me this machine the 
   Last time I sewed.....

And guess what came home with me?
Yep another early Christmas gift to me!

   Just love her Green color!

   Okay enough chitchat I have two bindings
   To finish today because Christmas is coming!

Grand illusions Clue 2 link up

Yesterday I had to put aside the mystery to work on some Christmas gifts. But I did manage to throw in a HST here and there as leader Enders! Working with friends last Friday did give me a small start. I tell you what tho that was a whole lotta cutting before you even get to making those "precious" chevron units! I think I finally found a method that works for me. Not the template one .....just sayin'

     My tray of Mysterious parts.

    Unit 2 pieces ready to put together.

    Some cute grocery bags for my friends.

    A gift for an exchange .

   QAYG panels to make a zip pouch gift.

   And so far 6 of unit 2's blocks finished.
   Look at all the progress by others here.
