bags and more sewing and future mystery quilt or BOM?

I've actually been busy, but I just can't show the pictures!! bummer....
But I can show you THIS!
I mad a tie string bag for my daughter in Hello Kitty fabrics
she has her quilt in it.
The pattern is from Jeni Baker In color order

I also finished step #5 of Easy Street
I love making this mystery quilt, I SO want to do my own mystery or BOM kind of thing, what do you think? If I did a mystery quilt next year, would you join? or rather a BOM?? let me know

I forgot to show these goodies in my last post.
This is from hinterberg/nolting for recommending my setup to someone who ended up buying a Voyager17 and summit frame, but since I'm not a "dealer" I got "stuff" instead of $, a pig tail bobbin case (which looks just like mine, so maybe I had one all along) more bobbins and a funky template for ruler work.

I also got this order from quilt taffy.
perle cotton for redwork or similar projects- now I just need a light table!! he he
and Nancy drew charm pack, I have a "plan" for the Nancy Drew hop in March
Of course these days I've played with the kids, here Sonja is looking at her stacking cup tower.
I got them from amazon from a "green" company, so no nasty plastic stuff BPA free etc.

Here she's in her froggy chair and reading a book :-)

I don't know about joining in a mystery but I do know that I am going to make the quilt from your background. every time I come to your page I think I can do this with my die cutter. yesterday I 'found' a bunch of red dot fabric. now to 'find' blacks or greys.

Needled Mom said...

It looks like you are enjoying the Christmas season.

I'd be interested in another mystery quilt. I am enjoying doing Bonnie's right now.

Janet O. said...

Bonnie's is the only mystery I do all year--and I don't even start that until after the reveal. As it is I have a hard enough time staying focused on my own projects, but that is just me.
Sonja looks so sweet!

Michele said...

The bag is really great. I love seeing all that everyone is doing with Bonnie's mystery. I guess it is almost time for you to start your 2013 list.

Debbie said...

I would follow you in a BOM quilt and I know quite a few others who are waiting for one to show up. I've only ever done one TRUE mystery, oops no I did two. I did one through a blog which I love and one through FB which was a scrappy, not as happy with it but I got rid of a LOT of scraps. The others I've only done after it was complete to check and see that I liked them
