Monday Mystery Link Up - Finally

I've been very tardy this week and not for any Christmas related events. Family and work have been in higher priority than blogging.
But here it is, my blocks such as they are:
I think there are about 10 finished.
In between working on the Fat Turkeys, I've been working on Lighthouses.
On our trip to N.S. in October I picked up this panel of 9 lighthouses and a companion fabric. Since then I've been trying to figure out how to use them.  I adapted a pattern from Benartex to fit the size of the panel blocks.
And I also worked on string piecing on the Esperia
Which made it up the stairs to the sewing room and just took over this wall from the Singer 99
So an awful lot went on this week. Not a lot of progress on Easy Street.
But it has been great to see what everyone else has done, over on Bonnie's link up.


  1. You have been busy! Clue 5 goes really quickly. You'll be caught up in no time.

  2. It looks like you already have the cutting done and the sewing goes really fast on these Fat Turkeys! Can't wait to see more of your lighthouses. My sister-in-law's husband does the quilting in their house and he just loves lighthouses! Clue 6 will be here soon!

  3. Love your NS inspired lighthouses! Looking good!

  4. Love your NS inspired lighthouses! Looking good!

  5. I don't know how you have the patience for mysteries, tho' I'm sure it will be wonderful! Love that light house fabric! Sky blue and red is always a winner! I like the way you incorporated the large print kinda 'snow ball' style with the alternate blocks that's a great way to use a conversation print! Happy New Year! Claire W.

    1. Thanks Claire, I couldn't bear not to use every inch of those lighthouses. Happy New Year to you also
