All Caught Up..Celtic Solstice Linky

Doing the happy dance in Georgia. I finished clue #5 of Celtic Solstice! I did not expect to finish yesterday, but I did. I attribute being all caught up is lots, lots of uninterrupted sewing time. Taking my Featherweight with me to Orlando and BDSI pushed me to completion. As you can see, not all have been pressed and the dog ears need to be clipped. However, I am calling it done. It's a wrap.

Look down! See what I started, on Christmas eve, as a leader/ender project while working on Celtic solstice.

These two projects are given me lots of bonus triangle units. Hmmm, not sure of what will become of them. If I don't post until 2014......

                                                     HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Until next time...

Rolling In Fours....

Good Monday morning to all. I am rolling in fours... four patches that is!! I have completed clue #4 in Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt "Celtic Solstice".  All done using my Raspberry Singer 301-A. I just love how she sews.  She moves quickly for her age

I won't mention clues #1 and #2. Those are still in progress. But wait, hope is in the air! My plan is to finish those before the next clue comes out on Friday. If I can pull that off, that will bring me totally up to date. A first in my book! Hope to see you "Tweeting" on Boxing Day, #BDSI. It's being host by Sandy of Quilting For the Rest of Us Podcast.

In case I forget.... Happy Holidays!!!!!!

Until next time...

A few pinwheel blocks and lots of half square triangles. Stop the madness! I think I may finish this clue before the next clue is released. I will let you know how that turns out.

Until next time.....

Celtic Solstice Progress!!

In the beginning I purchased the fabrics. Here's a pic of my choices.

And then there was the release of the first clue. After much twisting and turning of the Tri Rec ruler  and cutting. This is the fruit of my labor. 

It may not look like much, but believe me over the Thanksgiving weekend it took all I had! I'll keep pressing on doing a few pieces each night. 

Until next Linky!!
