RAINBOW SCRAP CHALLENGE!
Tuesday, January 5, 2021
New Year's Eve I started working on the Party Poppers Mystery Quilt from the Facebook Mystery Quilts Anonymous group. Debi is the designer and she lives in New Zealand so she started on her New Year's Day which meant I got to start on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately , by the third clue I was ready for bed!
On New Year's Day I sewed up some of clue three (there were glitches and delays with my next mystery) but finished up clue three on Sunday. Today I finally put the blocks into a top.
Next up is back to working on Grassy Creek clue five. I have cut the corners for it and dug out the light blue strings (I am using those instead of grey) and today the paper arrived. I discovered that I did not have a phone book of the right size! Thursday another clue comes out for the Morewood Mystery too (and I have bloodwork and two medical tests in the morning) so I am down to two mysteries, whew!

My 3rd annual Project Quilting Mystery Quiltalong top is done. Super fun and superfast since I did all but two clues on one day. Very fun and bright and will find its way to someone I am sure. Linking up with the quiltalong!
I am waiting for the first clue in the Debi Montgomery mystery...she gave us a sneak peak so I know what it is, but still waiting on the directions. Looking forward to a day of sewing..and tomorrow I will do the Merry Mayhem mystery (while Grassy Creek will have to wait!). So while waiting, I repurposed my day five box from my Once Upon a Book Club box and made the Black Sonata print and play!

Two blog posts in one day since I cannot figure out how to schedule this one like I used to!
Here is clue five of Grassy Creek! This clue was much easier than three and four! Happy to be caught up again.
Project Quilting Mystery Quiltalong though they are not in order for some reason...

We spent Christmas Eve with my daughter and her husband and baby Hazel. They went home to his folks' home last weekend so they could keep it small. So Hazel finally met two more great grandparents and his parents had a chance to see her for the second time. Really keeping the circle small. So hard with a new little one, but we benefited as we got to spend the time with them. Tomorrow Kathy and I will go spend the day with my youngest (he is working the holiday) so seeing two out of there of my kids is nice. Mocha (the dog) posed so nicely for the picture too!
My advent box from Once Upon a Book Club FINALLY arrived yesterday too. We were supposed to read one story a day and open one gift a day through advent. I was really disappointed that is took so long to get here. Things are nuts at the post office this year. So I read the first story aloud to Kathy on the way to Hannah and Jeremy's house. Then opened the first gift when we got home and finished the story.
I got many nice gifts...lots of games this year (Kathy and I played 5 Minute Dungeon last night and liked it) which I am looking forward to. My mom gave me a gnome cookie jar and a snowman tea pot among other things. Some of our gifts from them have not arrived yet--mom was waiting on one more thing to mail another box out, but apparently it is no longer coming so she has to come up with something else. More fun mail days ahead.
My favorite gift this year is this ornament Hannah made from Hazel's foot. SO SWEET and we will always remember how tiny she was! Three months old at her first Christmas.
