Slow Start .....

My plan yesterday was to nurse my sinus infection by sleeping and then dropping in on the Festive Mystery quilters of the Christmas Quiltalong- maybe even get a bit of stitching done. Instead I ended up at the office fixing a math miscalculation a client made. When I finally made it home all I wanted was my bed. You guys were well on your way to finishing up your day.

Of course when one sleeps all afternoon, one is awake all night! Or that was my experience!
The result of being awake all night is 60 squared up quarter-square triangles. Believe me during the square up process I started to think the little darlings were multiplying. It seems like six million instead of 60.

And then there were 20 for my plastic box where they can sit pretty until next month. The colors are not photographing well. My light is really a rich gold. I'm liking the look so far.

I regret I didn't get the opportunity to stitch along with the rest of the gang. I am hearing Lesley of The Cuddle Quilter  was a super host. Go check out Lesley's blog. She seems to be very busy as she is involved in a Table Topper Blog Hop starting tomorrow.

Much thanks to Sue of Quilt Times for the Festive Mystery Quilt pattern. I'm still unsure how it will all come together; however I know Sue's designs to be fantastic!

April Quilt Along Day!

Today is the day. Lesley of The Cuddle Quilter has the April instructions for the Sue of Quilt Times' Festive Mystery Quilt. Mine are printed and I have the 4 1/2" blocks waiting for me to start drawing lines ...
I'm unsure how much I will get done today. I am a bit under the weather - sinus infection - and not quite up to a lot of stitching. I'm hoping I feel better later today.
