updated Garden Mystery Block Instructions…


I was sick the last couple of days…and that is my excuse for uploading the 1st/unedited version of the Garden block…I don’t get sick very often so it was just one of those things…the good thing is there were not may issues…the finished size was changed along with some thread numbers that needed to be added…those blank spaces???…yes..those…so nothing detrimental just annoying little things…but thank you for letting us know so we can get the right one loaded and out to you….here it is

Mystery Block Inst. 2018

I am in CA and yes, I am feeling better…Nick thought I should have called off my trip but I really do feel lots better…I have a coughing fit once and awhile but you can hardly notice it otherwise…I know many of you have been sick as well…I guess it’s been a tough year..

Have you noticed my lack of communication in FEB?  I sorta took off…intentionally…I was home the whole month…got organized..got caught up on my commitments, just concentrated on things and now I’m ready to go- to get back to business…and even more now that I am almost 80% unsick at this point…100% is just around the corner…by tuesday for sure…

Since it is Sunday…family day..I’ll share some of our FEB adventures…with “little man”… so if you here only for the quilting you can cut off here….

Feb started off with his birthday…we celebrated at the indoor waterpark in Green Bay…tundra lodge…just for the day…

This was Mimi and Papa’s first time…it was a blast!!!

The next day was his party…here are all his buddies..being silly with their ring pop colored tongues!!!

We got him a kids tablet since he has taken over mine when he is here at Anchor Point…he wanted to play games…like on Momma’s phone??? Oh well…I’d be holding him back if I didn’t let him in on technology…and it does occupy some of his time so I can do a few things while he is absorbed…
As you can see he enjoys it in many places as well….He stayed a lot with us in Feb…Momma was away on buying trips for their store…so we had lots of fun…

There was lots of baking…both real things…and then we did play dough…so he could practice rolling out his cookies…there was arts and crafts as well

The recipe I used for the Play- dough was found on Pinterest- pictured below…and it was awesome!!!… Click HERE to go to her site.

will be back soon….LB

  1. Always good to take time to step back, regroup, reorganize, get set to start anew! How I remember making homemade playdoh! Made so many batches of it when my kids were young……in the 70’s!

  2. Get better, Lisa stay well! Missed you, but totally understand. Take care, and thank you for all you do!

  3. Hi Lisa, Glad to hear you are feeling better! Life’s too short not to take time off, and it looks like you had a blast with your grandson. Making memories with loved ones is what it’s all about. I just got back from a winter Boy Scout camp weekend in Tahosa CO with my son’s troop. I actually got to sled down a hill… great stuff! It was cold & beautiful and I even got to stitch a little! Hugs, Jakey

  4. Love the Mystery block! At the bottom you posted the kit for the block is $1200 and the thread is $7025. That’s WAY above my budget!

  5. He is so cute did I miss the layout for the half square triangle follow along you did last year or has it not been posted yet?

  6. I just love seeing how much fun you are having with the little guy. What a way to relax.

  7. Thank you Lisa I love everything,you do, I love sewing with wool it’s my favorite. Your Son is beautiful, I have a grandson about the same age, they are so much fun and you looked like you had a great time.

  8. He is a very lucky, blessed little boy. You are teaching him so much. Love the colors of the play dough! Love all you do for us too. Paula in KY

  9. Love the pictures! That’s the same recipe I used for years and years making play dough for the children in my kindergarten class, excellent recipe, total success! Lasted for ages, even with 22 little pairs of hands!

  10. Received my kit today. I’ve read and reread the instructions but i don’t see any information on how to transfer the “grow” on the wheelbarrow. Please advise. The wools in the kit are beautiful. Thank you.

    1. Mary…Use Glad press & seal….trace the word onto the non stitcky side of the P&S with a black magic marker.
      then stick it in place…stitch right through it with a stem stitch…when done…cut away as much of it as you can close up to it…then with a tweezers pull it out “sideways” from under the stitching…hope this helps?
