The Eve of Clue #4!

Are you ready for tomorrow’s Celtic Solstice clue #4? 

I know many are a bit frazzled – we are THIS close to Christmas.

I’m here to tell you not to fret, not to panic – I have saved our EASIEST clue for this week, and it will go live tomorrow morning at 7am EST!

I wanted to remind everyone to check our Linkies from this week – entries are still coming in, and they are all so great!  I can’t thank you enough for all of your participation in the Link-Ups.  It really makes it fun for everyone!

Click HERE to view the more than 170+ links playing along on this week’s post!  How awesome is this?

This is a heads up that if you still want to link to this week’s  post --- you have until 11:55pm EST to do so!!  Time is running out!


As for me…I’ve been at my desk for days.

The edits for my next book are coming back, and I’ve been chained to my desk ((other than a break for a massage yesterday and to pick up my Christmas present shown on last night’s Quilt-Cam post HERE.)) for the last few days deep at it.

We are getting there!  And it is exciting to see it come together – it’s just that desk days don’t leave me so much blog about!

I have NOT touched my Cheddar Sampler quilt since working on it during Quilt-Cam last night!  There it sits…ALMOST all sewn into rows, but it must WAIT!

I’m trying to get it all done so that I can head to the cabin tomorrow morning….stop at the store to get all I need for a week away, and start my Christmas baking up there! Whoowhooo!

But in the mean time..there is still a lot of desk work to do.

Keep on Quilting on ---cuz right now I’m FAR from it!!

  1. I just finished up clue three this morning. I figured out that I have cut 3351 pieces so far. Wow! Thanks for giving an "easy" clue for tomorrow

  2. Thanks Bonnie for all you do. Enjoyed web cam last night. I'm slowly working on the mystery, and happy to hear tomorrow clue is easy. Looking forward to a few days of sewing. I'm done baking, house is somewhat cleaned, just need to wrap presents . Safe travels to the cabin, and hope the stores are not too busy for your shopping preparations. Have a wonderful evening. I will check the clue early tomorrow. Wendy Bradley Alliston Ontario Canada.

  3. I so appreciate you sharing your love of quilting with us "Design Challenged". You're one special lady and I would like to wish you a very, very Merry Christmas to you and your's.

  4. Thanks Bonnie for all your hard work. I have learnt so much on this mystery already. Managed the hst with the easy angle first time using this. Also tried the magic 8 mentioned on the fb page. Haven't finished 1 and 2 yet but good way there. 3 sewn just need ironing. Looking forward to next clue but working the weekend so have to start Monday! Happy Christmas. Camilla Stagg in Uk

  5. Bonnie, when you have time, perhaps when we start assembling components, would you explain again how you get all that threaded together? Or pop in a link on that clue?
    Thanks, my little bits are SO cute! I found some 2.5" shamrock fabrics, so have been making one block for each clue in those.
