Dipping my toe in

I've dipped one toe into the latest Bonnie Hunter mystery, Chilhowie.  I love the colors this year, but am not going to actually commit to making the whole quilt.  Instead I'll play with the clues each week, and save all the instructions just in case I decide to make the whole quilt. 

Most of the aqua and purple in my stash has a lot of bigger print, so yesterday I bought a half yard of both.  I'm not sure about the 3rd color which is orange. There are quite a few options in the stash.

The project box is a 2-tiered one which snaps all together nicely and holds fabric and printed pages of instructions.  What's in the bottom you ask?  A couple of blocks from the Grassy Creek mystery along with a few fabrics I had collected for it.  Maybe I need to set a goal for 2023 of doing something with those blocks too.

I like your two tiered box I haven't seen one like that before - I always save the directions for several years to the mystery quilt and then if I decide no I will not make it I delete it off the computer.

I need to get Grassy creek finished. It's the only one I do not have all the parts made for. I have all the blocks and everything for last year's quilt. I just need to assemble it. Maybe that will be a weekend goal.

I have one of those two tiered boxes too for watercolor supplies:) You keep having fun!
