I am almost half way through "Year of Wonders" and loving it. It is about the plague the end of the 1600's. Sounds worse than Covid. Still loving my new quote mug!

Merry Mayhem Mystery Prep and More!
Merry Mayhem New Year's Day mystery quilt. It only took a few hours so if you want to join in you have plenty of time to catch up! Free clues until after the mystery then you have to purchase the pattern. I found a layer cake to use for this one (Kathy had me get myself fabric for Christmas) and the one I liked that was not an arm and a leg was a Christmas one, so someone else will be getting a Christmas quilt next year.

Clue 4--the One that Almost Made Me Behind
Also still reading and listening like crazy. Malibu Rising was a little soap opera-ish, but I enjoyed it.
Children of Blood and Bone was decent, but I do not feel the need to read the next book in the series. Trying to read more fantasy but I do not always love it.
Hazel has more than 110 spoken words (yes, we counted) and so many signs I stopped counting. She shows me several new ones almost each day. She is so entertaining! Here she is showing me NUMBER, WOLF, and TREE. Her signs are not textbook (of course) but she is consistent in them. She already puts two signs (or words) together. HELP OPEN (for open the gate or other things) and MORE CHEESE (her favorite food). She just turned 15 months old yesterday. So much fun!
Things I have made previously (and that are on my blog already) pillowcases, wine bags, the Simple bag, burp cloths, dolly buntings, dolly quilts, potato bags, aprons, pencil cases, hexagon trivets, Christmas tree napkins and I am sure there is more!
I am hoping to get started in January with a bunch of Pocket Pillows. Shabby Fabrics has a free pattern. I can think of ten kids at least to make this for (My oldest son's wife has six kids and one grandkid with another on the way and he has adopted the youngest child as she had a different father, so always looking for things for them and it adds up fast!).
Does anyone know of another Christmas Through the Year type thing to help keep me motivated and on track?
Merry Christmas Eve and Happy Holidays!

Three Quilt Finishes, a Clue and some Reading!
Hazel is signing and saying words like crazy now! She is starting to put two together. Her latest signs were TIGER, STAR, COW...she also is waving at me for attention which is super cute!

Rainbow Scrap Challenge Choices for Next Year...
In my health saga...diagnosed with hypothyroidism and put on meds. Naturopath thinks I may have Lyme's so will be tested for that again soon. A few other things were off in my bloodwork. I saw a new PCP today and really liked her. She put in for a walker for me. Crazy how fast your health can go.
