For my new followers, I have been doing a Mystery Quilt via Facebook for some family and friends. I have been posting the directions on here. I think I have all the weeks labeled as "Mystery Quilt".
Week 6: This week is the opposite of last week. Using the LIGHT/DARK half-square triangle units and the LIGHT/MEDIUM four-patches, make 25 of Block B. The dark portion of the HSTs should be to the outer corner of the block and the medium squares of the 4-patch should make a diagonal line through the block. The finished block should measure 6-1/2" square. Next week we will get the final instructions and I will provide the link to the website this comes from.
I may be back later to edit this with a photo or two. The weather (rain!) and the time change are really slowing me down. I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact I stayed out until midnight on Thursday in order to watch Oz, The Great and Powerful after my very busy work week. Then, on Friday I went to the quilt show. I usually go on Thursday and there are fewer people. It was a little too busy for my taste. I was nice, though. I didn't push, shove or speak rudely to anyone.
There were several fiber artists there. I think I could get into spinning. I don't knit but I do crochet. Just what I need, another hobby. I was telling my MIL about it and she asked if I wanted a spinning wheel. Turns out her cousin's husband started making them for his wife and daughters (who I went to kindergarten with!). She was just sure that he would make me one and that they are beautiful. Another chapter to that story is my DIL shears sheep. I bet she could get me some wool. This is like a rabbit warren I have fell in.
On another front, my husband and I bought one another a Primo Ceramic Grill for Christmas. Friday night he wanted pizza .... on the grill. My son's girl friend was here. At one point I looked at her and said, "Isn't pizza supposed to be easy?"
She said, "It is if you order it like most people."
I don't. I make my own crust and sauce. I grate my own cheeses and then there is the assembly and cooking. It was our first try and my husband made an error in judgement. I questioned and he told me it would be alright. I can cook well but apparently if you put charcoal in a ceramic bowl the man knows more than me. That would be why one edge was decidedly black!
Enough rambling. I have so much to say but I should start DOING. Today I am going to make chicken Alfredo lasagna and bake some bread on the Primo. I think I will try a focaccia.
