Mysteries and Stuff

I want to thank everyone for the well wishes on my anniversary- my best friend and I had a ball- we went out to dinner and then sat here and watched the baseball game that our children and my hubby were at. She's a wimp and went home by 9- she works for a living so she goes to bed by 11. What a concept I'm usually an hour on the other side of midnight *VBG*

Aren't they cute??? After a thorough cleaning of lint from the Viking feed dog area I decided to bite the bullet and decide what block I was making for the Have it Your Way mystery. I have about 5 different sets started :( They weren't what I was looking for....Here are two sample blocks one is 6 " finished and the other is a mere 3" finished. Cool huh? I'm using the left over blues and greens from my ocean waves quilt to make it for my niece to have tea parties on for Christmas :) I got her a tea set too! Now to make another 21 of the tiny one and a dozen more of the 6" one. The thing above the blocks is actually 12 hsts sewn together through a thangle type paper I print on my computer to the size I need. A full sheet will give me 40 1" finished hsts-very cool.

Your blocks look so cute. They sure look a lot harder than my take the easy way out nine patches. It is going to be a beautiful quilt.

Glad you had a nice time with your friend! A nice tradition has been firmly established. Love the blocks!
