Gautier, Mississippi

 Hubby and I are on vacation in Gautier, Mississippi.  
Pronounced "GO-SHAY".
This is the condo where we are staying.  It's very nice.
Two bedroom/Two bath.  Clyde's brother, Tom and his wife, Sherry came to stay a couple nights with us.  We had a good visit.

Clyde wore his quilting shirt today when we visited a couple Quilt Shops in the area.  One is right down the street...Block Therapy.  Wish this one was closer to home!!  We also drove over to Biloxi and visited Janet's Quilting Bee.  Also a nice shop!!

I brought along my little Janome sewing machine and have been working on a quilt I'm making from Clyde's ties.  He used to have to wear one every day so I had lots to choose from.

Here are the parts to the block I'm putting together.

Here is a block laid out.  I think instead of the red center, I'm going to go with the same grey as the half-square triangles in the corners.  A lot of his ties have the red in them and I think they will show up better using the grey.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Mystery Monday #6

I have been following Sherri Falls, Little Bits of This and That, with her Mystery Monday's.  She has just completed #6.
Here is my finished top.

I like doing her mysteries.  She keeps it short and "doable" with the clues coming weekly.  Sometimes I try to second guess where she is going, but so far, she's surprised me every time.
