Life as a Greenmonstr

Quilting and Other Facts of Life

A short unexpected vacation from quilting

Well, I've had a little vacation from both blogging and husband's aunt died last Wednesday and we spent this past weekend up in northern Vermont to pay our respects.  It was the first funeral our kids had been to, so it was all new to them.  We hadn't been up in quite a while to visit my husband's parents and unfortunately his dad is declining.  He has emphysema and he really can't go very far before having to stop and catch his breath.  A lifetime of smoking is a terrible thing but you don't realize the real truth until it's too late.  If any of you out there smoke, please get help to quit!

Anyway, before we left I just had time to check out the new mystery quilt steps that were posted on Friday.  Very intriguing.  I have some ideas but I guess I'll have to wait and see! 

I wasn't going to post any pictures of my mystery project, since it's a mystery, but I can't stand it anymore!  I will share these pictures of my background:

The picture is a little light; the blue is actually deeper than it looks here.  I really need a new camera!  Anyway, it's a dark blue batik tonal.  

I have seen a lot of people's fabric combos posted and it's amazing to see the variety.  I can't wait until everyone posts their completed tops.

I'm excited about the Mystery quilt, too. You can't go wrong with a batik - lovely tonal.
