Progress on Mysterious Stuff

We had a quiet weekend.  The Scientist in Training and I got in some last minute stocking stuffer shopping.  The tree is up and decorated.  There are even a few presents under it.  Even better, I got in some sewing room time.  Not as much as my usual, but enough to get fabric cut for the On Ringo Lake clue 4. 



There are a few more triangles in progress over at the sewing machine.  I just made two initially to make sure my fabric cutting was accurate and to get a feel for the assembly process. This is the first time I've used Bonnie's Essential Triangle Tool, it worked really well.  Having the flat "corner" to match up with the square really helps with accurate piecing.  

One byproduct of getting the tree up, was that the library got cleaned up, so I had room to photograph the En Provence finished flimsy.  


 En Provence, A Bonnie Hunter Mystery (2016)

I'm happy with how last year's mystery turned out.  It still needs the backing pieced. That probably won't happen till next year.  So En Provence won't be finished until 2018, but at least it's mostly done.

It's so beautiful! And you're pretty reliable about getting them from flimsy to finish, so it'll be a lovely early 2018 finish!
