I love a good mystery and I'm ready again to join in the fun of Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice Mystery quilt.
We were given our first clue on Friday and here are my pieces cut. Now I'm chomping at the bit ready to sew.
This weeks clue all finished. 180 of these units all done. We won't get our next clue until Friday. I have no idea what this quilt it going to look like other then it will be a scrappy one. I changed some of the colors that Bonnie suggested. Swapped out purple for blue and raspberry for orange. It will be so fun seeing all the other ladies quilts. There are over 2,000 women in the facebook group.
One evening this month we had overnight guests. Uncle Paul Yoder and cousin Dan. Uncle Paul is Marks dad's brother. Their visit was short but sweet.
Now on to our Thanksgiving day. It didn't suit Jeremy's to join us till afternoon so we planned an evening soup supper. Here Holly is keeping my shrimp chowder from sticking and Mark is making osyter stew.
This picture included a bribe. When Boaz sees a camera it's hard to get a smile from him. I told him if he smiled real big I'd give him a piece of candy. What a wonderful smile. I love you Bo.
Alicia making her bread into a turkey. It's been a thanksgiving tradition she has done for years. What a great addition to our soup supper.
Caught the pecan snitcher in the act!
Our guests included Grandma Yoder and Grandma Schultz
as well as Jerrel and Alma, Bobby's, Jeremy's, Chris's and Holly and Carmen.
These girls get a gold medal! They cleared the table, served coffee and dessert and then cleaned up all the dishes afterwards. Thanks Carmen and Holly!
While here Jeremy smoked up some deer jerky. Some of the best I've had. He was so generous and gave us each a nice bag of it.
Mark's brother Nelson and Rose stopped in later in the evening.
Football in the back room. Wall to wall of fellows.
These moments with Ariel are so dear and precious. Please keep her and Jeremy and Cheryl in your prayers. Ariel has come down with a bit of a cold and it has made breathing and eating more of a struggle with her SMA.
Maxwell took these pictures. He loves being the photographer these days and I love that!
He can capture moments that I never could.
