Friday Fun!


Don't you just love all that color?  It totally says spring doesn't it.  It finally feels like spring has hit Maine.  Today it is supposed to hit 90 degrees.  I think the hubby is going to spend the afternoon after he gets out of work putting in our air conditioner.  We just have the ones you stick in the window.  I have a love hate relationship with them.  I love the cool air but it really makes our house dark.  

Anyway,  the above picture is my Lazy Sunday Mystery progress.  I took this photo a couple days ago.  This is part two.  I did manage last night to get all those triangles sewn together into hourglass squares but I didn't take a picture as I just wanted to get to bed.  So I now have part 2 completed.  Well except for the dog ear trimming.  There are still dog ears on almost all those loose blocks.  Part three has been released in the newest Quiltmaker.  People are getting them but I haven't recieved mine in the mail yet.  I hope to get it tonight so I can start part 3 this weekend.  

I am really loving the whole mystery quilt idea.  I have never done one.  I honestly didn't think I would like it. I love this one.  It could be that its in my color way.  I love bright colors.  


I did get a little more stitching done on this block.  I have just those little rust colored leaves around the middle left to do and that yellow pieced in the center.  I know, it doesn't look yellow but my camera really had a hard time getting that color right.  Its a really pale yellow.  I hope to get this finished this weekend so I can get started on the next block of the Jingle Belles BOM over at One Piece at a time.

This week I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts.   


  1. Ooooh I hope your air conditioner gets installed in a hurry for the heat. We have about the same temps here in NC.

    I will agree on your mystery blocks being fun---sounds great!

  2. Lovely! It's already hot hot hot here in NC. Good excuse to stay inside and quilt away. :)

  3. Finally we have some consistently warm weather her in the Chicago Burbs. I hate that my camera too can't always capture the color correctly - or thinks it is being smart or helpful by offering flash or no flash or light adjustments:)
