Design Wall Monday, 12/6/10

How is everyone this lovely cold day? I came home from work today not feeling real well, so I think I'm going to call off tonight! Sometimes one needs a break! I think it is winter blahs...but winter is just starting!

Quilting always does cheer me up, even if I don't have much time during my work week. I did finish my Asterisks quilt...the one above on my blog header. I listed it on etsy a couple days ago. Here's a photo (above) of the finished quilt. It was a lovely sunny day (but cold), so I took a few shots outside!

All the sewing I have gotten done this past week has been on the RRCB Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. This quilt is going to be interesting! I have no idea where it is going, but I'm having fun! That is part of the fun of mystery quilts...the anticipation of the next clue, and guessing what is going to go with what! This week we are making "neutral" string blocks. Well, as you can see, they are not what is commonly thought of as neutrals! Bonnie's intructions said go wild! Use up anything that has more background than print. It is fun!

Hope your all doing well and God Bless!

A few of my friends are also working on Bonnie's mystery. I've been tempted but haven't taken the plunge yet. LOL

If I remember correctly, you live in Eastern Washington... Spokane? How have you fared with the snow? Although we are at a higher elevation, we were bypassed a couple of weeks ago. I kind of missed it.

I love the colors in the asterisks quilt. Very cheery for cold, grey days.

I hope you're feeling better.
