Allietore! Clue #3 and slow stitching

I am loving Allietore!,  Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery quilt. You can find the link to the clues that have been released on the right side bar, near the top. Just click on it and it will take you to Bonnie Hunters Allietore! page.

Loved making these happy little four patches, for some reason I don't feel so hurried this year, and am managing to get my clues done by Saturday. I did cut the extra neutrals, but forgot a picture.
Here are my happy four patches, all 120 of them with a few extras.




And here is clue 1 to 3 all together, I am happy that the darker grey will work against the black. I am using several different grays. 

Looking forward to Clue #4 and to LINK UP MONDAY. I love seeing everyone's progress. Here is the link for Link Up Monday. Visit all the wonderful bloggers that are doing Bonnie's MQ.

And now for some Slow Stitching, I love stitching, have always wanted to make a crazy quilt and 
always have churn dash block on my mind. So I have combined the two. 
Here is the first one done. 
I have many little crazy blocks stitched, they are 6 1/2". 
Here are four of them. 
My grandmother taught me to embroidery when I was quite young, and I have done  a bit in my adult life. In the past year or two I have done quite a lot of work with wool and embroidery stitches.
Lots of fun looking in the scraps to put together these little blocks.
And here are few close up pictures of my embroidery work...don't look to close I am not a professional for sure.
