Monday Making and Mysteries

I have decided to play along this year with Bonnie Hunter and her mystery, On Ringo Lake. I have pulled all of my fabrics to use, and I got started on Step 1…

Yes, I only started. I didn’t say I finished it! I have a new (to me, plus it was free!) sewing machine sitting on my cutting table to use for piecing the Step 1 units, so I will do those when I need a break from quilting.
My other sewing machine (the one I use all the time) is set up for quilting the Kittens quilt…

I have stitched around each Kitten head and now I am using a serpentine stitch to quilt the background. I have come to love my serpentine stitch for quilting.

Those two items will be on my sewing list for this week. I will also continue hand stitching the birds onto the background for Bird Dance…

This is a perfect project to take to quilting bee on Tuesdays.

The only other item on the agenda this week is to make a second mitten. The pair is a gift, so I would like to have it done soon.

This will be a vet week with both pets, and getting ready for the holidays. I’m looking forward to daughter coming home in a few weeks and having some time with her before she heads back to school. We will see what we pack in to her 3 ½ weeks here.

Today I will be linking up with Love Laugh Quilt for Monday Making and at Quiltville for Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery Step 1. Head over for some great projects.


  1. Oohhh Free machines! I have a vintage Kenmore that was free to me; currently oiling, cleaning and hoping to have it ready for use by the time the mystery is done.

    Would love to see your machines! Your colors on both your quilt in progress and your On Ringo Lake are beautiful!

  2. You made a start Linda; that's the most important! Your other projects look lovely so the quilting is the priority.

  3. I am new to the online mystery quilts. I was out of town when this started but now home and am anxious to try I need to check out part one intro to start. Thank you Bonnie

  4. I want to take part but I don’t know anything about this iPad all new. I did not get part 1 or part 2 where do I go from here?
