Tonight, I finished the first step of the Bonnie Hunter Christmas Lights mystery. I tried to finish it last night, but my sewing machine decided to try to eat the thread instead of sewing smoothly so I stopped. I had to clean out the fluff from the machine and rethread it. It is working well once again. I will put this project away for a while until the next set of instructions are published in the Sept-Oct. issue of Quiltmaker. There is another QNIC tomorrow night so I will likely have some more pictures to share after that.
