It's Monday what's up

It's a very cold day again here in northeast Oklahoma. So most of my day will be at sewing. I'm working on, which I didn't think I would start, Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt.

 Right now I'm working on the half square triangles which you need 280 of . Then I will start sewing units together and should have that done with no problems today.

I think for dinner I'm going to make hamburger soup. It's a Ree Drummond 
(fellow Oklahoman) recipe over on Pioneer Woman's website. I've made it before and it's such a yummy recipe. Going to use some of my grass fed beef that we raised and some of the vegetables from the garden. Lots of veggies. Then some biscuits. 

 I also hope to  get two blocks cut and prepped ready for my gray and yellow Nested Churn Dash blocks.

 And hopefully I can move right along today and start cutting out the panels for the little dudes cloth books I'm making for Christmas. (24 days away)

Linking up here


  1. Cloth books are so great, aren't they? I loved them as a kid, and then again as a young mother! It'll be fun when I have grandkids some day and can make some for them! Once again, I'm completely charmed by your nested churn dashes. Nice fabric choices. :D I'm not-so-patiently waiting for someone to wake up downstairs so I can sew the last 30 of my Bonnie broken dishes together. Love your fabrics on your HSTs

  2. I had to come see your MQ blocks--they look a lot like mine! I even have both of those fabrics in mine. I'm using lots of 30s leftovers--no turquoise, so I'm using blues. I think I'll like the soft colors. Like you, I've also got several other projects in the works and it's kind of fun to go from one to the other.

  3. Your churn dash blocks are gorgeous. Sounds like you are moving right along with Bonnie's mystery blocks.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
