Good Fortune - Clue 7 - Bonnie Hunter - Mystery Quilt from My Quilty World

Happy New Year!!! Bonnie dropped a new clue along with the ball in New York -- right at midnight.  Somehow I made it long enough to check it out and then was off to bed. She's a tricky one.  This year, for the first time since I've been doing these mysteries, it was not the reveal, but another step.  I LOVE IT!!  We will be building some of the units together to make the blocks go a bit

Along with this comes today's clue in Bonnie Hunter's Good Fortune Mystery.  Clue 6 is strings once again and I am at the point

Good Fortune - Clue 5 - Bonnie Hunter - Mystery Quilt from My Quilty World

It's December 21st and the new clue for the Bonnie Hunter Good Fortune Mystery has posted.  She is being gentle on us with our holiday time, but even still I just can't even do more than look at what we are doing.  Mom H. is still in the hospital (albeit rehab) and we are running all the time along with trying to make sure everything is done that we need to do for Christmas.  It's just kinda

12/7  Don't you just love this time of year?  Each Friday we wake excited and eager to see what is in store for us with Bonnie Hunter's mystery and today is just such a day.  However, all I get to do is look right now.  I am hosting a party in my home tomorrow and today is prep and clean day.  No sewing for me, but such great eye candy.  We are making chevrons, which I love, AND using the bonus

Good Fortune - Clue 4 - Bonnie Hunter - Mystery Quilt from My Quilty World

It's Friday!!!  That means another clue is released in Bonnie Hunter's Good Fortune Mystery.  It also means something else, just for me.  What could that be?  Well . . . . I have not finished Clue 3.  Yep, it's been a bit of a crazy week here on the homestead and sewing just didn't happen.  Between doctor visits/tests, several days at the hospital helping my sweet MIL, and a raccoon that decided

Good Fortune - Clue 1 - Bonnie Hunter - Mystery Quilt from My Quilty World

Hello again!  It's Black Friday and I can't believe that the yearly fun has arrived.  I am in a crazy strange place today and even though I can't work on the clue, the Texas Renaissance fair is a nice second.  Everyone needs to play dress up now and then, right? Upon returning from the fair, it's a long drive back to Dallas and I'm just too tired to even think about the mystery.  However, we

Autumn Splendor - Clue 8 from My Quilty World

Well, my anniversary has come and gone.  Wow -- the years are flying by.  One of my favorite anniversary trips was the one we took to New England as "leaf peepers."  Oh the beauty of it all will never leave my mind and just in case it does -- I have pictures.  Not these ones though.  Again, the following are from my 'hood. If the year goes just right, we get the entire color scheme during the

Autumn Splendor - Clue 6 from My Quilty World

Ahhh, living with hardwoods at this time of year is just calming.  All the gorgeous colors running amok in the backyard just make my heart so very happy.  I think what they say about certain colors for certain people is true.  I am a redhead and naturally drawn to oranges, browns, golds, etc.  Nature provides them to me each autumn and it has always been my favorite season. This week, those

Autumn Splendor - Clue 2 from My Quilty World

Week two has arrived and with it, even more color.  The logo picture says it all this week.  Truth!  So, so pretty.  We do have a couple from our yard that are fitting as well, so I'll share. Autumn in Texas comes much later than it did when I lived in Montana, but it is every bit as beautiful.  We have lovely oaks, pecans, and maples in our yard that give such beauty in the dark colors.

Autumn Splendor - Clue 3 from My Quilty World

I have had ample opportunities over the years to photograph this time of year.  Last year, my view from the back door is the inspiration for today's clue.  Just look at the way these browns, golds, oranges and wines play on nature's canvas.  Ahhh, my  heart. I am still at the beach with an amazing group of women and hoping for at least one sunset picture with these gorgeous colors in it.

Autumn Splendor - Clue 1 from My Quilty World

This November will be the 5th year that a specific group of quilters has gathered in Rainbow, TX for a retreat right before Thanksgiving.  Each year when I leave for retreat, it seems as though fall has not arrived yet.  BUT (I know, never start a sentence with but, but . . .) it seems that each year when I return our yard is in full regalia.  I always try and capture a picture of the day I

1/13  It's out, It's out!  AND it's beautiful.  OMG.  I am in love.  I knew I was happy with the way the colors were going, but the sashings are amazing and the little tips on the setting triangles just make my heart sing. With that said, it's complicated.  Seriously.  I am so glad that Bonnie is holding off on the final link-up until February 1st as I just know this will take me all of that (

On Ringo Lake - Clue 7 - Bonnie Hunter - Mystery Quilt from My Quilty World

What the what???  Waking earlier than my sweetheart today, I quietly peek at the computer and what do I see?  A new clue posted just minutes prior and a full day ahead of me.   I know he has an hour of work shortly so maybe, just maybe . . . RACE to the studio and flip the heat.  Back to the house to gather up all the required bits, slam an orange juice, and make sure Mister is awake. That's it
