I HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS!!!!

I was finishing up the mystery quilt from camp and all of a sudden I noticed I had no heat in my iron. After replugging it and shaking it, I came to the conclusion that this is where it needed to be.



A quick trip to Wal Mart settled this problem and I was back in business. With the new iron I was able to complete the mystery.



I am donating this piece to the Women's group at church to be put in a raffle for next year. All proceeds will go to our mission fund. Of course, I have to get it quilted first. Will probably take it to a lady here locally and give her until next summer to get it done. It was a fun mystery with a lot of little HS triangles. The really fun part was making that border come out right with the two colors.

Now on to finishing Old Tobacco Road. However, I have a lot of things to finish for the church bazaar first, of which I am chairman of the Women's booth (can't figure out how I got that job). Plus, we are having a "Homecoming" at Church in a few weeks and expecting about 600 people with a catered lunch after services on Sunday. The rest of this story is another lady and I are in charge of making the table decorations for this event (once again I don't know how I got that job). As soon as all this is accomplished, it will be time for Christmas....Woe is me!!!

That is a nice quilt. I love that style of iron. It is like the work horse of irons. They do tend to wear out after awhile though.

I love the colors in your mystery quilt, so springy! Are you sure there isn't a little sign over your head reading "pick me!" :D
