Celeste is just too curious, don't you think? Finally got her off of the quilt. Progress was made tonight. For those interested my colors, here are the changes that I made.
For Bonnie's green, I used navy. Her aqua is my red. The purple became my yellow. And the grey became my brown. Thank you for all the wonderful comments. Please check in again in a week or two. Hopefully I will have the top finished by then.
Before heading to Iowa, did I consider bringing my fabric with me? No.
I was only going to be there a few days for a short holiday
visit. The weekend visit turned into nearly a week long stay after my
grandson was born. Luckily with some direction, my son was able to locate my fabric and bring it to me when he came down to see his nephew. I immediately got to work and completed step 6.
Step 7 would have to wait until I returned to Minnesota. With planning, I was able to finish the four corners and several of the side triangles. Now on to Step 8 and the blocks! I can't wait to get them sewn together!! It will take me a day or two to get some blocks together, so check back later this week.
I have been trying to keep up to date with the steps of Bonnie's mystery quilt this year. After Christmas, I went to visit my daughter in Iowa. We weren't going to see them this year, as she was 38 weeks pregnant. Understandably she wanted to stay close to home. So I went to visit her the weekend after Christmas. Little did I realize it would be the "perfect" time to be there. My grandson was born on New Year's Eve. Definitely a great reason to be behind in my sewing!
Haley and I traveled down to Grinnell after Christmas. Originally Jim, Lucas, Haley and I were going to head down on December 28th. Due to complications with Jim's eye surgery, he stayed home with Kevin and Lucas. Haley and I didn't head down until Saturday, December 29th. Since we came a day late, we planned to stay until December 31st. Little did we know how much difference a day would make!
On Sunday December 30th, Jen and Haley were busy fixing dinner. "Normal" evening, right? Not the case. After dinner, Jen commented that she wasn't feeling very well, and the baby had "dropped". Thus began a very LONG night. For most of the night, Haley waited for her new cousin to arrive.
Gus was born New Years Eve at 1:11pm. Kevin, Carrie and John rushed down to visit their
