Christmas is a week away! Yippee!!

First, I'll show you my progress on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt project:  Clue #3 is half-square triangles.  

I used these papers I had in my stash, and the process was simple and easy. It went fast and very smoothly, and now I need to catch up on Clue
#1 and #2.  Here's a picture of the papers, which make 8 hsts at once:

I am linking up with the linkup with others at Bonnie Hunter's blog:   (Here)

I thought I'd share some of my Christmas decorations with you.  Here's pictures of the front door decorations and the sleds on either side of it:

The smaller sled is our old family sled.

The side door has a pot of hostas by it in the summertime, and it is now filled with osage oranges, or hedge apples as they are sometimes called.  It is said that the squirrels like the seeds inside them, but they have left this arrangement alone.

I will close today's post with a picture that was just texted to me today from my daughter.  It's a picture of our youngest granddaughter, in her school choir performance.  Not the best resolution because it was taken with a cell phone, but she's such a blessing, I had to share it:

Merry Christmas to you all!

I like the contrast in your half-square triangles.

Your half square triangles look cute! I like the pinks. Pretty granddaughter. My 4th grandson was born today. I was blessed to be in the hospital room for the birth. Happy Holidays!

I love your Bonnie Hunter mystery quilts. Your Orca Bay looks almost identical to mine. And I like they way you did your Easy Street with the Christmas Colors. And now the fabrics you have chosen for Celtic Solstice are quite handsome. It makes me wish I would have chosen those colors. I have a lot of your same fabrics.
