Thanks Bonnie

I was not going to start anything new untill I had finished two UFO's. That is until I saw Bonnie's picture of her mystery quilt. I fell in love. Hard. Now three weeks later, a record for me, here it is. I need to pick out two border fabrics. I'm sure I'll find just the right thing in my stash. I only had to purchase 1/2 yard of fabric the rest was in my stash.
We are iced in Everything covered in a layer 1 inch thick of ice. Brrrr. Glad for a lot of things especially a husband who cuts wood. I've missed a lot of work but maybe I'll get to go tomorrow. We will see what the road are like.

The first thing I was asked is, "who is it for?" Gosh I still don't know. Usually I know but this quilt isn't talking. Here is where I got the pattern.

Almost a year

Oh how time flys when your havin fun. Working and quilting and time just slips on by.

This I did for my son and wife. I hope she liked it. I had to work a lot so I didn't get as much sewing done as I'd hoped.

The quilt to the right I did for a cousin she likes it however she is only 6.

At least it is finished and delivered.

Her mom is making me a bag that is knitted with wool then felted. I'm looking forward to getting it.

This one is still a flimsey But I'm liking it. I had two grocery bags full of strings and I decided instead of starting a third I had better do something with them. After piecing it just begged me to add something else. Just the ticket I think. I don't know who will get this one probably the first person who comes along and loves on it.
I'm working on a quilt now called double delight a Bonnie Hunter design at I just love her work.
