RSC14 Sampler from Angela's website. I finished mine differently, but love how it came out.
RSC15 sampler also from Angela's blog. This was a fun one too!
The first one is sponsored by Craftsy and Stitchin Heaven and is called Sparkling New Year. It starts at 10 AM my time (CST) and has easy cutting and presewing of HST's. You do not need to be a member of Craftsy to sign up for emails to get the clues. There is also a facebook group for this and they will be doing videos all day demonstrating this quilt in progress.
I normally do Mystery Quilt Anonymous' quilt which NORMALLY starts at 2 PM my time on New Year's Eve. This year because of the day it falls on Debi is doing it on New Year's Day starting at 2 PM (it is morning for her in New Zealand). The clues come out every few hours on her website and there is a facebook group of the same name where we all share pictures and tips. If you love mysteries, her website (and her books sold on Amazon) have a plethora. She is prolific and shares her talents freely. She makes videos with tips that are always fun too. I am going to try to catch some of that live but it may depend on how Merry Mayhem is going since that one will be in progress already that day.
I hope you have all had Happy Holidays! Despite coming down with Covid for the first time (pretty sure my granddaughter brought it to her dad, then me, then her mom) we went to my folks--barely making they cut off for quarantine. The kids have had it before. Kathy somehow did not get it--despite being exposed to her and to me all week. I took Paxlovid since I am immuno-compromised. I actually felt better than normal from the time I was exposed until the time the Paxlovid ended. This seems to happen to me...my fatigue lifts decently when my body is fighting something else. I had lots of headaches, body aches, and metal taste in my mouth, but overall I had it easy.
The night before Christmas Eve we went to Hannah and Jeremy's and did our Christmas. We got some amazing presents--a long weekend in Door Country with them in June and a wrapped up pregnancy test! The next day, my mom and Dad were super thrilled we worked it all out and went to Marshfield Christmas Eve day. Hazel had lots of gifts and wore a shirt that said "Big Sister." We waited for my parents to notice and they were as overjoyed as we are! She is due in August after my birthday and before my Mom's so the countdown begins!
treated myself to 12 Days of Book-Club-Mas again this year. There were so many fun gifts in it but my favorite might be this TBR jar. I cut up a list of all my books on the shelf as of November and put them in the jar in the hopes that I might pull from it and read off my shelf. Goal for the first half of this year is to buy less books because we hope to move this Spring. I have plenty of books here to read and access the library so I should not bring more in to move!
I also sewed up the second to last Log Cabin Love block awhile back. One to go.
Here is the last clue for the Secret Agent Mystery Quiltalong We had to cut things apart and do a bit of sewing before putting our top toge...
