Celtic Solstice Mystery Kick-Off Party at In Stitches!

Yesterday twelve of my Bonnie loving friends gathered at In Stitches in Goodyear, AZ for a Celtic Solstice Mystery Kick Off Party! Jan and her husband were so good to us--it was sew much fun to be at their shop!
 We had a little Bonnie show and tell!  This one is my Lazy Sunday (I got in back from Ros that day!).
 This one is BJ's Lazy Sunday--she has been hard at work on getting this top together before Celtic Solstice started!
 Each person who attended got a little Celtic Solstice colored stocking ornament.  I made an extra one to send to Bonnie too!

 These three photos show us happily holding up our rotary cutters for Bonnie!



 This is our whole happy group!
And here is my Packer colored clue one--done!  If you have not been bitten by the Celtic Solstice mystery bug yet, check it out at Quiltville!  I am linking up with Bonnie with others to show that clue one is done--post your progress each Monday along with us!

This looks like too much fun! I wish that I lived closer so I could partake.....but, everyone would probably be mad at me for ruining their fabric and machines because I would have so much frosting on my hands from that cake!!!!!!!!!!

So COOL! I want to know where the cheese-heads were for your Packer colors? ;-)

JaneB said...

What a great idea! I'd love to attend a kick-off party for the Bonnie mystery. Great fabric colors! I'm a cheesehead, too. When I saw the gold/yellow and bright green in the color selection I immediately thought "Packers"!

Now that really looks like a fun time!! I'm doing the mystery quilt also.

If the Vikings didn't suck so bad this year, I would challenge your Packer colors! LOL Love the gold and green even so. Will be fun to see the finished quilt.

What a great way to kick off the mystery! I don't know anyone else doing it, but I really enjoy visiting everyone online to watch their progress.

How fun it would be to do the Mystery with a group! 2 of my friends are doing it too. But we are following each other online. Because work and distance gets in the way.

The party looks like it was a lot of fun. We've got several people in my guild doing the mystery. I think we'll have to arrange something like this next year.
