It's a Mystery! Again!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) Peppermint sticks
(2) Peppemint patties (the red and white ones - not those York peppermint patties, they're too sweet!)
(3) Finding loose change

My sister has a group she walks with just about every morning.  She tells me that every time they go walking - every single time - they find money in the street!  It may just be a penny or a dime; once they found a handful, just laying there!  So far I've only found two pennies, one greatly used.

Go figure.

Are you ready for another mystery??

I was sewing the binding on my Scrap Crystals quilt and lo and behold, it wasn't long enough!

I was so sure I cut enough strips, and what you see on the left is all I had left of the fabric I used, sheesh!

Had to go on a fabric hunt...

I hope this piece is close enough, I couldn't find anything else!

See... you can barely tell the difference, right?

Attached to the quilt ...

I don't think you can tell at a glance that they're different.

People in polite society won't notice, right?


So I'll be sewing this down by hand while we're buzzing at the Bee today.

I believe today is new officer nomination and election, and committee appointments.  Anyone not showing up will likely be appointed where they're needed, in absentia.   Ahhhh, democracy!

Sew forth and buzz on


  1. Best to go to meetings so you don't get volunteered.

  2. The binding looks great. It really isn't noticeable without close examination and like you said no polite person would mention it anyway.

  3. I combine fabrics in bindings on purpose. For increased visual appeal. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...
