Worth waiting for

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Bath and Body Works sales
(2) reaching a goal
(3) granola

This granola snack mix from Costco is a seasonal item and I've only found it during the cold months, fall into winter.

I found some today and I was thrilled!  They make it in the store, a delicious blend of honey, raisins, walnuts, cashews, cranberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds and a lot of other good stuff - definitely worth waiting for!

The other thing worth waiting for is my completed Allietare top!

First, a look at the border fabric - my first choice was this one but somehow all the white took it to the grey side.

It's a pretty fabric but I rejected it in favor of this one...

it photographs with a greyish cast, but in real life it's a nice black with white and grey doo-dads on it.

I think it looks pretty great on the Allietare top...
all done!

Each red-centered block has matching fabric within the block, and I used one constant red for the setting triangles.  Otherwise, everything was done as suggested in the mystery clues/steps.

So I'm linking up with the final Allietare linky over at Quiltville - go see what everybody else has accomplished since starting this mystery, the day after Thanksgiving!

Sew forth and sew on til later...
