|If you have never done a Bonnie Hunter Mystery I encourage you to try this one, it is still available on her blog and now that the reveal is out you can either look at it as a finished quilt and pick your colors or do as we mystery quilters like to do is guess as to what colors we want to work with before we see the pattern. I have picked lots of stash I have on had but with a bend towards Christmas colors : reds, golds, greens and blacks.|

|Everyone of these Santa's are handmade by my sister, some are wood cut outs done by her husband then hand painted,|
the large one on the right is sewn, stuffed with a painted face. I think they make a lovely vignette on top of my hutch.
|This is a 8 inch square that will become part of a large quilt in the Temecula Quilt Co. sew along|
called count down to Christmas.
Well I did finish this one block, but not a whole quilt, I don't think Amanda Jean will mind if I share it over at Finish it up Friday.
|Bonnie Hunter has started her annual holiday sew along, it is called Celtic Solstice but mine will be call Christmas solstice since I will use Christmas colors, still debating if it will be King sized or not :0).|

|The beginning of the block on the Lori's sew along. I used this brown plaid as a border since it was lying on|
my sew table from the Halloween quilt I just sent to my granddaughter.
|It can either be a table runner or a bed scarf for Lily's bed.|
I took a Halloween charm pack and cut the 5 inch squares into quarters, this turned out larger than I first imagined
but I think it is still fun.
|the top of the B says " Happy Halloween Lily" and the bottom has a spider, on the outside edge|
I wrote" Love Grandma"
|This letter O has a spider tangling from a spider string|
|This O has a web and a spider coming down to the web.|
In the mail it goes this afternoon :0)
Happy Sewing, Kim
