It's almost New Year's, which seems to be a traditional time for mysteries to take place. I don't need another project. I just itemized all my projects already on the go for 2015, and swore off new projects. And I remembered that I found a New Year's mystery last year, so I did some googling to see who was hosting one this year. And now I appear to have jumped in with both feet. But I can't resist a challenge, and trust me, this is going to be a challenge.
Here's what's up for New Year's this year:
1. Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusions Mystery - already in progress, but booting right along at 1 clue a week, so should finish early January
2. a New Year's Eve mystery, from QTMysteryQuilts, a yahoo group. (starts 3am, Dec 31)
3. a New Year's Day mystery, from Merry Mayhem (10am Jan 1)
4. a New Year's Day mystery, from quilting.about.com (7am Jan 1)
The good news is that 3 of these are 1-day mysteries. So I should be able to avoid stretching them out for the whole year. AND, the most important part, every scrap of fabric for all 4 of these quilts is coming out of my stash!
|2. QT Mystery Quilts - Black & White with a splash of (scrappy) red|
|4. quilting.about.com - green quilt (3 greens) with gold accent|
|3. Merry Mayhem - scrappy darks & brights |
(there's more orange/yellow than shown here).
|1. Bonnie Hunter - Grand Illusions. Scrappy green, aqua, pink with yellow, black and white. A jumbled mess because cutting has commenced.|
