Allietare- Part 3

The house was a little less hectic this weekend so I was able to cut for Part 3 of Bonnie Hunter's Allietare Mystery.

This week's step was 4 patch units using our neutral/yellow-gold and cutting 3-1/2 X 7-1/2 inch rectangles.

This giraffe fabric was one of my favorites............

When I cut the first half of my yellow strips I realized that I needed more variety so I went thru some bins in my room and found yardage, fat quarters and even some scraps......I pulled everything from old Thimbleberries to Debbie Mumm and the above giraffe fabric that I just got last month!  A little bit of the new and old makes for a nice variety!

I'm happy I was able to finish this step early this week so I can make a few handmade things for Christmas gifts and with luck I can get my cards out by Wednesday.....
It's not too late to join in with the mystery.....go and check out Bonnie's blog and if nothing else, print off the directions so you can start after the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over....  Here's the link to today's linky party---->

In closing....a few pictures of my little monkey doing exactly what grandma told her not to.....

There is NO sitting up at Grandmas sewing machine....scissors and rotary cutters are a no no, and then standing up in my chair on the back room because she doesn't know how to get down and then yelling ensues :)

It's hard to believe Christmas is 12 days away...It was 66 here today and we did our dog walking etc in short sleeves!   

Have a great week!!

Peggy, GREAT fabric choices!!! I love seeing all of the choices that people make for the same exact pattern. It's just amazing. I don't know about you, but I'm finding this year's mystery has been smooth sailing so far. Hopefully it continues that way! By the way, your Granddaughter is the cutest! Merry Christmas!
