More of the Same

The first text on my phone this morning is that offices are closed.  We've had light freezing rain since yesterday afternoon.  That just means I'm working from home today. But at least I can do that in jeans and won't have to brave the 20 F temperatures to walk across the parking lot. 

There was a fair amount of stitching time this weekend, though it doesn't look like there was a lot of progress on Grassy Creek. 

Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

The top  and bottom 2 rows are all sewn together.  All the border pieces are pieced, though the last one is missing from this photo.  I made half of all the subunits for the mystery. That's worked out well, except for the yellow/gray HSTs that make up the corners of the blocks.  I was short on those, thankfully those could be cut from the left over strips.  The HSTs and two more blocks are under construction at the sewing machine, so the last five blocks should be finished by the end of the week.  I wasn't too sure about these colors, but the more I get done the better I like it.  

Linking up with Monday Making and Design Wall Monday for the weekly show and tell.

Its always amazing to me how different each of the mystery quilts look based on color. I love watching for the different color ways each year. Not going to make one anytime soon but so glad so many do...vbg

I love your color scheme! It reminds me of those first feeble rays of sunshine cutting through a morning fog, promising a sunny afternoon.

Oh no! No going to work? What a bummer! Your quilt is looking good. They’re expecting snow on our hill at home this week. Sounds like there will be a lot of accumulation. Glad we’re not there.

Glad you could work from home to avoid the icy roads.

I do like that gray with the quilt blocks! Glad you can work from home today. It is -6 here and dropping, so I'm glad my two can work from home as well. Unfortunately, our son has to work, so he'll have to brave the bitter cold. Have fun sewing today!

We had single digits yesterday. I made sure I didn't go anywhere!

Oooh Grassy Creek is looking good. Hope you get a lot done on it this week/weekend. It looks like you are going to have some more bad weather -- which is going to go east and hit us. On my iPhone we supposedly having snow 7 of the 9 days listed. I'm hoping it's pretty to watch fall but doesn't accumulate. Either way I'm staying home and sewing.
