Design Wall Monday - the Mysteries

Ahh - what a week - I am all rejuvenated for stitching and quilting and .... THE Mysteries!!

There are Two Mysteries in my mind right now - the one that I am hosting in our Mystery Quilts 4 Military Yahoo group - we are finishing up step 3......

And the Bonnie Mystery!!!   ( ohhh maybe I will call my Mystery - the Alycia Mystery..... ohh I sound important that way - ha ha ha ha HA!)

First up - The Alycia Mystery:

Fun Little 9 patches....  There are more blocks than this so far - But I am not sure how she is going to arrange them ( ha ha - such a tease right?)

These are the fabrics that I am using for this go round .

And for the Bonnie Mystery!!!   Step 1 - Lots of half squares!!  We are to use a grey and a Neutral... so my Neutral is a bit on the plaid side.... I love me some plaids!!

progress being made.
and the light being turned on, as worked on into the night - alright - Truth time - it is dark here at 4pm - so it may not have been as late as I thought it was!

Ta-da!!! 294 ( or 296?)  half Squares.   I have NEVER been able to finish a Bonnie Clue in a day - so I call that a huge progress step - and probably setting myself up for disappointment later .... But right now - I am totally happy dancing!!

And just in case  you missed Fall 
Here is was - Fall in the Rockies

Color me TOTALLY impressed!! Umm, I have 300 HSTs that need trimming... volunteers?? ;) Yeah, I thought not. Couldn't get my husband to do it either!! LOL Great job! You have a few days to give yourself some pep talks, drink some motivational tea and get ready for the second clue! You can do it!!

You are amazing!!! I am saving Bonnie's steps for the mystery and may make it sometime...I don't like not knowing what the quilt will end up looking like!! Guess I'm a bit of a control freak that way!! You did great!!!
