FNSF Update - Midnight Mystery January Clue

I forgot to do the Friday Night with Friends!
(I'm so Sorry!)
I came home from work and I don't remember much else.  I was just too tired.

Well, I did work on my quilt over the weekend. 
I now have the Midnight Mystery Quilt Top completed.
(January's Clue)
 So I may not have stitched with everyone else - but I did stitch.

So - now it's on to how to finish this - no border, more borders ?
It measures 73 inches.  Which I suppose is big enough.

Taking into consideration my track record of adding borders to quilts (ie - Angela's quilt) I should probably stop here and call it good.

In the mean time - I'll go look for some fabric see if something catches my eye for a border and find some backing fabric. 

Happy Stitching,

First Post of 2016

Well, are you all bundled up with this wet weather?  
And if you are in the lower hemisphere, are you enjoying some nice sunshine?

I loved the sun when it was shinning and now that it's wet and cold I'm love it just as much.  And I love the early morning skies.
This picture was taken this morning on my way to work.

I have been working on the Midnight Mystery.
Cheryl has really made this fun.
All my blocks are sewn for the December clue.  Waiting (happily) for January's clue. 

And check out what I taught my daughter, how to play Barrel of Monkeys.
So that she can beat her boyfriend. (I know some tips on to get them all up and in a row.) 
Somehow this game was so much easier when I was a kid.

Happy New Year!
