Moving right along!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) charm bracelets
(2) keepsakes
(3) seasonal Coffeemate flavors

Sugar & spice? Peppermint mocha?  Gingerbread latte?  Eggnog latte??  Come on, be happy!


I'm digging right into Part 4 of the Allietare mystery - we're using black, baby!

This gives me a chance to cut into some of the new black fabrics I got in Lancaster; I just love this one - animal paw prints!

But look!!!

I've worn out another GO mat, had to open up a new one!  I've got only one more in reserve, I wish they made them stronger.

But the good news is, look at the progress I made on step 4!

Seven sets of "centerless bow ties" made, only 23 more to go.

I'm linking this post up with the Allietare Mystery Monday Link-Up on Bonnie's blog - check it out!

Meanwhile I've done other digging too - lookit these scraps, gotta move em out!

I love receiving other people's scraps, it's always like opening a new present every time I dig into the bag.

As I'm working on Allietare, I'm also making crumb blocks as leader-enders.  When I get a "whole heap" done I'll use my Accuquilt 4-1/2" die to cut these down into usable parts.

If you look closely you'll see some HST's from Allietare part 1 that didn't make the cut - let no scrap be left behind!!

Well I'm off to my last medical appointment of the year, my eye doctor.  Have a great day, finish whipping out those quilty projects, sew forth and sew on ...
