Hello 2014!

I spent the first minutes of the year out in the street wondering where people buy their illegal fireworks. It seemed as if everyone else in the neighbourhood had some!

Late this afternoon I discovered that Bonnie Hunter had surprised us all by revealing the mystery at midnight her time (about 4:00pm here). I had to rush home to my sewing machine to put a couple of the blocks together to see how they will look:
I haven't fully ironed these two because I had to go out again. Making the rest of the blocks should keep me busy for a few days. I need to do a few more to get the feel for the overall design.

It will be fun to visit everyone's blogs on the final link-up next week and see how all their different colour schemes look.

Happy 2014, everyone!


  1. Happy new year to you! Thanks a lot for your comment no my blog - all the way from Australia! I will follow your nice blog. Good luck with the Celtic Solstice Mystery! Love from Liv Aagot, Norway :)

  2. Happy New Year! I too noticed B.H. had given us the reveal but not until about 11:00 p.m our time (U.S. Pacific zone). I pinned two blocks to my design wall before heading to bed. I'll get started on them today, but first I have a few other things to do. It will be interesting to how this looks with those who chose different colorways.

  3. Your blcks lokk nice together. Happy 2014 to you!

  4. Your blocks look very bright and colorful. It will be fun to see how all the color schemes look.

  5. Happy New Year.
    I too wonder about the fireworks,
    oh naughty you tempting me with that quit,

  6. Happy New Year Vireya. Those blocks look great! Another blogger from Canberra also commented on the illegal fireworks in her suburb...I think that they must buy them online from OS but you wouldn't think that Customs would allow them into the country.
