Part One of Bonnie's Mystery

Here are the 100 3 1/2 inch rail fence blocks for the first clue in Bonnie's mystery. I am using green and purple batiks. The green is my accent color. Next step is 100 little nine-patches. I have a light yellow batik for my lights and the nine-patches use a lot of the light.

I am staying with Emilio tonight while his parents go to a Christmas party for Paolo's rugby team. He is eating his dinner right now. Dinner can be a challenge for him but he seems to be doing fine tonight. Of course, grilled cheese sandwich is a good start when you are four years old.

We did some last minute Christmas shopping today. I think I am finished but I need to do one more check to make sure I didn't forget anyone. I am going to make a steno book cover for Christina to give to her step mom for Christmas. Once Emilio goes to bed/sleep (they certainly aren't the same thing for him), I will make the cover and then start on clue 2 for the mystery.

Tomorrow is my last full day here in San Francisco. I think we are going to go to the Farmer's Market in the morning but I am not sure what else is planned. Since I am still somewhat on eastern time, I have been sewing every morning and have completed piecing blocks for the Wacky Devine Nine. Since they are so large and I only brought a small ruler, I think I will wait to trim them to size when I get back home.


  1. I love the purples and greens together. I think it is my favorite color combination.

    Enjoy your time with Emilio.
