More on Celtic Solstice

Got all the blocks on the design wall, then I took them all down!!!

Now they are ready to sew into rows! I also put together 3 of the 4 pieced borders. It is coming along nicely.

Of course, what I should be doing is cleaning out closets! We made a decision in November to sell our house (of almost 29 years) and move to TX! Lots of cleaning out to do. I think it will be easier to do all of my closets and cabinets in the house instead of tackling the sewing room! I think I will leave that one for last! I will keep you posted on my progress!

Design Wall Monday - Celtic Solstice

This will be my first time linking to Judy's site.  I really want to FOCUS on doing that every week.  It may MAKE me write a blog post.  LOL!   Really, as much as I love to read what everyone else writes, I haven't gotten in the habit of posting on a regular basis myself!   I hope to change that in 2014!  Stay tuned!!

I, like a lot of quilters out there, have been working on Bonnie Hunters' mystery quilt called Celtic Solstice. I only changed one color this year, her blue is my purple.

I was about 2 weeks late in getting started, but I caught up fast!

My first block all put together. Lookin' good!!

I hope to get most of it put together this week.

Oops, sorry for the blurry pic.  Will have to retake it!!  The blocks  aren't  sewn together yet, just hanging on the design wall. I really didn't plan on making Bonnie's mystery quilt this year, but am so glad I did! This was my second year and I am hooked!

It's a New Year!


I've been giving this a lot of thought and my word for the New Year  will be FOCUS. 

I will need to FOCUS on quite a few things this coming year.  Hubby and I are planning a move from New Orleans (where we have lived for 38 years) to Texas!  So cleaning out, downsizing and packing will be a big FOCUS for me.

Next, will be a couple of quilts that I MUST finish in the next 2 months.  They are just flimsies right now, but hopefully by next week, one will be all sandwiched and ready to machine quilt.  I'll share pics then.

Another thing I want to FOCUS on is this blog.  I plan to update my years in quilting tabs and hope to write a post at least a few times a week.  I know I have things to say, but I just don't put it out there!

Hopefully 2014 is my year to really FOCUS on things I want and need to do.

I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year! 

Sew till next time............
