My Project Roundup

I have had a busy few days working on my projects. This has given me much needed thinking and pondering time. My old school wanted me to return to teaching for 2 days a week next year but as of this morning I have decided to continue in full time retirement. I have had a few sleepless nights trying to make this decision.

First up this week I have been working on Week 3 of  Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery 2013.  I needed to make 61 pinwheel units and 244 half square triangle units for  the Week 3 clue. To date I have cut 3580 pieces for the quilt.

Of course my number one and number two helpers have inspected my work closely.

Hallie seemed quite happy with my progress  and settled down for a quiet time. That was until  Misty arrived and she did not appear to like the centres of some of my pinwheels.
Think you had better get over here Mum and fix them up.

You can see what others are doing in this mystery by going to Bonnie's Link-Up Party page.

I have also been beavering away at the free BOM's that I am sending out at present to those who have signed up.

Block 4 in the BFC Creations Graceful Air, Land and Sea BOM has been sent out this morning.

Block 37 of the Crazy quilt using Kenny Kreations Crazy quilt set has also been sent out. We are now up to stitching and embellishing purple/mauve blocks. We are well and truly on our way to making 64 blocks for this showpiece quilt.
