So, I have a grand total of ten of the double diamond blocks completed for Step 2 of the Grand Illusion Mystery. But I think I have it figured out now. Just haven't made any more yet. But I will. I will. Honest.
Step 3 is WAY easier. Here is the start of it. I don't anticipate problems making the full amount of these. Just have to find the time.
Yes, the dogs are on the edge of their seats (bed) cheering me on. Note Lady's big yawn!
I finished the top for this lap size quilt and got the backing cut. My friend Sandy's sister Peggy is going to quilt this one for me. Thank you Peggy!!!
I have the borders sewn on to the "tropical" quilt top I made to reinforce my confidence. Backing is chosen, but not assembled.
Our sweet neighbor Eva shared with us some of the delicious peanut brittle she made. Oh, my, it was (yes, WAS) so good!
I picked the last of the butterbeans on Thursday and got them shelled. When my siblings and I were children we always had a big garden at our house. It was a matter of necessity to have enough food to stretch the grocery budget through the winter months. We always liked shelling these colorful beans best of all. And they taste good, too!
Christmas came early for me! Mr. Muddling added two charms to my bracelet. They are so pretty!
Christmas is approaching so fast and I am far behind on my preparations. I have LOTS of cookies that need to be baked, so that will have to happen soon.
I do hope you are having a good time and that you are doing a better job than I am of staying on track with your projects.
Hugs and kisses,
