Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt 2012

Yep, I'm way behind on this, but I only started a week or so ago and that's okay. I am quite the newby at quilting. I thought this was a wonderful way to learn new techniques, plus everything is in smaller chunks. Now, I was suppose to make 192 4-patch squares. Not a bad task, but I had it in my head to make 384. I simple math mistake on my part. I started to worry a bit when the grey was almost gone, but I already knew that we would not be using any more grey. I was at 374 when I decided I needed to take a look at the directions again. Oy, I made nearly double the amount needed. Lesson learned, reread before picking where last left off. Its okay, I have plenty for the start of another quilt and I got to pick the best squares for this one. No worries. Anyhoo, here is a pick of my colors for the quilt.

I'm Back

Hey there, No I'm not on a different planet. Just busy. The hubster and I moved to the country this summer. It's quite the adjustment moving from citylife to the country. We are doing just fine. It's fun decorating for the holidays. I also was able to hand out halloween candy. So much fun watching the little ones. Decorating for Christmas was another event entirely, First, husband is a little fearful of hieghts. Therefore, daughter and I were the two on the roof while the son and husband played supervisor. It looked just life city workers 2 doing the work while the others watch. It was fun. We had wine on the roof. What could be more country than that. On to what's new. I have a couple of scarves that I have finished recently. The first is My Hope. I love the pattern and the yarn is a handspun from TdF. The beaded bindoff was a beast. Pretty in the end. My Hope The other is Hitchhiker. Easy breezy knit. Hitchhiker Oh I have fallen done another rabbit hole. No real surprise to those that know me. I made my first quilt. More on that tomorrow.
