Bonnie Hunter’s 2014 Mystery Quilt

The mystery started on Black Friday.

I was in Charleston, SC, at a family retreat for Thanksgiving–more on this quality experience later.

I left my fabrics ironed and ready to go when I got home on Tuesday after Thanksgiving–FIVE days after the first clue.

I finished the first and second clues last night.  Here’s what I have so far in terms of units made–which includes 400 bonus half-square 2-inch triangles made while making the pile of units on the left.  This method of making bonus triangles was, I believe, pioneered by Bonnie:

Clue 3 came last Friday, and it’s got GREEN, which I had thought might happen:

I’m on the job as soon as I finish posting to the blog!!!

120 units to make…

An Aphorism

A dear friend here recited this little aphorism the other day, and I thought it especially appropriate during this season that can get more than a little crazy if allowed:

 

“Yesterday is history;

Tomorrow is a mystery;

Today is God’s gift,

That’s why it’s called ‘The Present’.”

Starling Murmurations

Judith Brill sent me this video–taken in Ireland along a river.

I had no idea what starling murmurations were…

Apparently the video has had millions of viewers…

Thanks, Judith.

Sprouted Blue Corn and Buckwheat and Blueberry Muffins

 

I made these this morning!

They are delicious!

The recipe came from Jennifer McGruther’s blog, Nourished Kitchen:

Sprouted Blue Corn, Buckwheat and Blueberry Muffins — Nourished Kitchen.

And she got it from the Shiloh Farms online VERY INTERESTING store.

They have a whole range of SPROUTED gluten free flours and will ship them.

There are other products as well, and I will be taking a much closer look at what they have to offer soon.

Next step:  try to get our local coops to carry these flours.

What a treat to start the day!
