Not Finished Friday

or design wall Monday.... but!!!  I did finish something this week - really I did!  I finished cleaning up after all my kids went back to school, and helped dig out another hay stack, and .... this is the big one... I cooked!!   Ok.... I planned to cook, and then I made someone else do it!

BUT!!

Here is where I am on my Bonnie Mystery!   I really wanted to show you!!!!


I think that had I known what it would look like , I might have used a lighter grey.
Except - my goal is to use my stash - so I might not have, since I don't have a lighter grey in it!


I think I like it so far!!

You probably don't know this - but we had a blizzard way back last year (December 14th or so) and that snow has NOT left. It has turned rather icy, and is quite annoying to me right now.  And now we have more snow - at least it was coming down as I was writing....  

I always thought that winter time was supposed to be less ranch work - but in all the years I have been married to Wrangler Man - it has never happened.  So.... think of me.... in the cold.... with just a little bit of chocolate to sustain me.... Ha ha ha!!  

Don't forget - we are doing another Mystery Quilt 4 Military - the fabric requirements came out today - so it is not too late. And i am busy polishing up the clues!!

And I decided to join in with the One Monthly Goal - with this quilt!!! Ackkkk Wish me luck!

Your quilt top is coming along beautifully. Plaids play so nice together don't they!

I think the gray is perfect!! It is looking spectacular, now that it's come this far, there is no turning back - it is too awesome!! :)

I always heard that a rancher's life never slowed. . . I didn't grow up on a ranch so winters were quiet (work wise, with 6 brothers cooped up in a house. . .not so quiet!!LOL) but my friends that lived on ranches, never got a break. Stay warm and keep eating that chocolate!! :)

I love how this is looking and really like the grey in the mix. It's also cool that you have done it all from your stash.

You've made a lot of progress. The darker gray makes the alternate blocks stand out a bit more, mine did that when I switched to a medium blue. Your version looks beautiful.

I don't envy you having to deal with the cold and snow. We've had the cold and it alone has not be fun. But we don't have a farm to work, so we only have to deal with it when we walk to the cars.
