But a few stolen moments, mostly because I am too exhausted to do anything else, I find a little time to work on the next part. I may not have all the parts done but I am getting there.

|My daughters reindeer.|
Again, I saw it on Pinterest. Why do I love Pinterest so? My addiction of choice. Do I choose to get sucked into the Pinterest vortex every morning while I have my coffee, getting little else done, like blog posts or emails or whatever... The hours whittle away. Yesterday, I skipped out of my morning Pinterest ritual early. Sitting only for about 20 minutes. Jumped up and cleaned out my sewing room, cleaned some cabinets, made some stuff in the kitchen, put a load of laundry in the washing machine and realized only an hour had passed but yet I got so much done.

I am getting excited about seeing what the final product will be. It feels like such a gift. For me its the perfect time of year for this Mystery Quilt that Bonnie does. I know its busy. But who says you have to do the whole thing. Do a few at each step and then when you have time resume.
I love doing it side by side the people in my Guild and also all the people out there in the Blogosphere. And it is so fun waiting for Friday for the next Part to be revealed.
Since I am not doing mine totally scrappy this Part was quite a bit easier for me because I was sewing strips together. Pieing a bunch of 2 inch squares is definitely admirable. I am quite sure that at least one of the ladies in my guild is doing just that.
If you want to join in on the fun, visit Bonnie Hunter's page, Quiltville's Quips and Snips. The pattern is available until June.

Last Sunday, I had a Mother/Daughter Craft day. We made two things- these coasters and a reindeer made of felt. I will show you that next post.
I found them on Pinterest. Many tutorials there. It's pretty simple.
1. Get tile biscuit. (It's a simple tile in white, measuring about 4 by 4 inches).
2. Lay a thin coat of Mod Podge.
3. Lay a piece of paper on the Mod Podge that was cut to fit. You could use scrap book paper or a photo that has been copied onto paper.
4. Slather another coat of Mod Podge over top, easing out bubbles as you to.
5. Let dry.
6. Outside, where there is a lot of ventilation, spray coat with Polycrylic. Let dry in between layers. I did three coats.
in other words- 1 cup glue: 1/2 cup water. Mix and use. Store in air tight container.
