Our Mystery marathon has been run… and I think everyone felt like they had run a marathon, but a very fun and fulfilling one.

A wonderful group of ladies cut, stitched, ate and shared in Lenah Valley yesterday along with many others around the globe


Jenny was the top of the class, she got the furthest, to this point..


Look how dedicated and hard working they were all day. Thanks Marja for your  donations – they were gratefully won!


Cathy did her own thing (but at least it was my block!) and had a lovely day to start her holidays.

IMG_6759  many blocks were made








and several were unmade….

There are some winning online bidders, I shall let you all know tomorrow but for now I am tucking early into bed after a very big but successful weekend.

hugs, Helen

oh, did you want to see the finished mystery quilts?

and this was the simple contemporary quilt which will be released as a MissM pattern very soon.

Hopefully I shall have lots more finished quilt photos to show you all soon.
