Celtic Solstice Mystery Clue 5 (Bonnie Hunter)

I'm so excited . . .  I'm all caught up.

I came home from spending Christmas with family and had a marathon sewing session.  Thursday night I was able to finish all of clues 1 - 4.  I listened to a book on CD and kept going until 2:00 am.  I even checked to see if Bonnie had listed clue 5 before I headed to bed.

Friday morning I immediately checked for clue 5, then proceeded to get it together.  I finished all of clue 5 at 3;30 this afternoon.  I hadn't planned to sew it all today, but once I got started I just kept going.  Of course, this meant I didn't make my usual treadmill session at the gym.  Now I have to wait seven days to get the next clue!  This is worse than a child waiting for Christmas.
Clue 5 finished

All pieces from clues 1 - 5.
I had a nice visit with my family over the holiday.  Our big event is Christmas Eve.  Lots of children (9 months to 9 years) in the next generation so that makes it even more fun.  We have dinner, take a family photo, open gifts, then play games.  We do tend to get a little wild during game time.  I ended up with the final prize, but the gift bag was in shreds.  Christmas Day is what I call the "Left Overs".  All of us that don't have a second family we need to visit.  We have a quiet lunch together.  This year there were 14 of us for Christmas Day.

Thank you for looking.
Have a safe New Year's Eve celebration.


  1. I am still trying to catch up - haven't even started the last two clues. I am sewing this weekend (after Debbie and I go to Bakersfield to drop off our machines for service. We wore them out. :) Glad you had a nice Christmas visit with family and yes, kids at Christmas is tons of fun.

  2. Your colors are so yummy reminds me of ice cream soda on a hot summer day :)

  3. Your mystery is beautiful so far!

  4. Love you colors and the dark neutral choice. I too finished clue 5 on Sunday & waiting for the next clue is maddening! Can't wait to see the big reveal of the layout.

  5. Looks like you're poised for the final clue! Thanks for sharing and I'm looking forward to seeing your finished top.
