Allietare: Clue 4

Yep. Clue 4. I’m a week late. This is the clue where I always get behind because of holiday travel.


Clue 4 ready to sew


This is as far as I got.

I think this clue looks like martini glasses.


A pile of little bonus triangle squares just from the sets I’ve sewn


Bow ties sewn as leader/enders between sets of clue 4.


Four flowers on each stalk opened up right before I left. This is a record. Of course, by the time I got home last night they were all shriveled up except the last two to open.

While I was in Illinois, my friend, Becky, and I wandered through a local antique shop. I found this interesting design, circa 1940s I think. It wasn’t well made so I only came home with pictures.




Can you see the octagonal block? Squares fill in the gaps between blocks. I didn’t find the exact block in Brackman’s book but 445.8 (Wedding Ring Tile) is close. Nothing exactly like it in Jinny Beyer’s book, either. I’ll have to show it to her at club next week and see what she thinks.

If I were small enough, I’d have snapped up this beaded dress, even if the only place I had to wear it was around the house. They were asking less than $40 for it.



Detail of bodice. Love that sweetheart neckline.


Detail of skirt. Not a very good photo, I’m afraid.

      Thanks. Bonnie released the reveal tonight. I hate when that happens and I’m so far behind. I got half of clue 5 done and still have to finish clue 4.

      Happy New Year!
