Monday Mess...

My house looks like a bomb went off in it!
Christmas stuff everywhere,
but all not in its proper place yet.
Boxes, bags and piles of things that have been
displaced or emptied of decorations
and not put back in the closet.
I know it will all get done,
but it's the "inbetween" phase that vexes my spirit.

And where am I?
In my Hidey Hole....hiding from the mess.

While I have been hiding in here,
I finished sewing the blocks together on my latest
Disappearing Four Patch.

I think this one will get a narrow white stop border
and a wider solid border in either the green or turquoise.

Disappearing Four Patch is my "go-to"
pattern for baby quilts.


The third clue for "En Provence" was released on Friday.
We were to make 168 purple four patches.

This spiral makes me smile.  :)

Mine are finished and put with the first two clues.

This is my first time participating in a 
Bonnie Hunter mystery.
It's not too late to join in on the fun!
Go here to see what is needed.


After making my daughter the Advent Calendar,
I had some scraps and pieces of the 
Charlie Brown fabric left that I wanted to use.

I made these potholders for her with free hand quilting.
The quilting isn't pretty, but they will be functional.

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are creating.

I'm done hiding...
off to tackle the house!

Happy Quilting!

Love your pile of four patches, made me smile also. Hopefully one of santas little helpers will pop in while your sewing and clean up the holiday explosion mess.

I love how you pile your 4 patches, that is fun! Your disappearing 4 patch is bright and fun. Cute potholders too! I put up Christmas quilts, but that is all the decorating I did. I normally love Christmas decorating, but I'm not feeling it this year. We aren't hosting anyone this year and the guests I had yesterday got to see the quilts. I am hoping by tonight I will actually do a blog post!

I love your disappearing four patches.

You're doing well keeping up with the mystery, I didn't have chance this weekend but I'm hoping to get some sewn later today.

Your disappearing 4-patches are beautiful, love the colors. Congrats on being all caught up on the Bonnie mystery. You've got some pretty scraps peaking out from all your blocks.

Your DP4 blocks are sweet! Love the spiral pile of purple:)

Love the colors in your D4P Ramona! And the purple spiral too. It's okay to hide from chores when you are quilting. :)
