Friday Night Sew-In

I was working diligently on NYE Mystery 2009 last week. Here is how it turned out pre quilting.

I'm committed to sewing or knitting Friday night for the Friday Night Sew-in. Visit Heidi's blog to sign up for it. I've never participated so this should be fun. I am going to try to make a tote bag that Kevin got me for Christmas. Remember I said my kids sabotaged my efforts to use more fabric than I acquired? He got this nifty kit to make a tote bag from Connecting Threads. Who would have thought there was 2 3/4 yards of fabric in the thing? Not me, that's for sure. I hope to get it made this week. And, I have all the supplies to do so. I know I can put it to good use.

I'm going to be working on a secret project the rest of today and until I finish it. Sorry I can't share it for a while. I am tickled pink to be working on it though.

In the meantime I went through some of my old (and I mean so old I have no clue when I would have gotten it) yarn the other day. I've had a pattern to make a hood tube (I don't really know what it is called) but you put the tube over your head so that it nestles around your neck to keep you warm. If you need it you can pull it up as a hood to keep you warm. I definitely need it to keep my head warm. I was quite proud of myself for using yarn from the yarn collection. Hopefully I'll get it done in the next few weeks. It's been cold up here and my current hat isn't quite warm enough on those 15 degree days!
Raggs has been up to his old tricks -- he's chewed the arm off this snowman. The brown pieces are coffee beans and he got one off the other snowman. Poor snowman. Wrong, Raggs, wrong.

Happy Sewing All


  1. great quilt! enjoy your sewing/knitting on Friday night.

  2. Have a great Sew-In tonight, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do, love Lis x

  3. Hey Bonnie! Love your NYE 2009 mystery! I remember that snowman fabric, I had it in all the colorways and made a star quilt from an old Terry Atkinson pattern and used bright yellow for the background/sashing. Hubby claimed it very quickly LOL. He loves the bright colors :)
