I have been plugging away on Part 5 of Bonnie Hunters Celtic Solstice quilt. (http://www.quiltville.blogspot.com/p/celtic-solstice-mystery.html) I am in the final stretch of getting this section completed. (http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2013/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-5.html) I am very happy with the fabric choices that I made and I made a serious dent in my Christmas fabrics, some of which are over 20 years old. So far all of the fabrics are from the “stash”. I love that the Christmas section of my shelves is a little emptier than it was before. That means that I will need to buy more fabric to fill it up. (Just Kidding Chuck!!!)
We are in the midst of a major winter storm right now. The temperature is 4 degrees, the snow is falling and the wind is blowing. I love it!!!! The fridge is stocked and the fireplace is ready to light. The only down side is that I have a miserable head cold. I shouldn’t complain because I can’t remember the last time I had a head cold but I do feel pretty lousy. Luckily I have no reason to leave the house.
Here are a few pictures of the chaos that is also known as my sewing table. It doesn’t look like much but all of those pieces are strung together waiting for the next step. In some cases I need to add the final piece, in others I just need to press and trim the final step. I will get these done soon provided the power doesn’t go out.
After Bonnie posted the final step of the quilt I just had to put a couple of the blocks together to see how they would look. I am very pleased with the final product so far and I can’t wait to get moving on this quilt again.
If you are in the path of the storm stay warm and safe. If you are in warmer climates enjoy the sunshine. I am very happy to be snowbound on the coast of Southern Maine. I think that I am going to make a big pot of Chili this afternoon – perfect food for a stormy day.
Keep sewing and
