Easy Street, part 1

I am officially a Bonnie Hunter fan.  I realized today I have made 5 quilts from her patterns, including mysteries, and am working on 2 more.  Yep, a fan.  So, when her newest mystery came out, I knew I would be doing easy street.  Clue one took me a couple of days (pesky work got in the way), and I am now eagerly awaiting the next clue, due out on Friday morning.

Happy quilting everybody,

Easy street part 2

I am loving this mystery quilt so far.  Much easier, like Bonnie Hunter promised it would be this year.  I worked on clue # 2 this weekend, but not as much as I would like to.  I came down with the flu, and it is kicking my butt.  So, I am in bed, trying to get my energy back. Get your flu shot.  ( my public service message).  So far, I have about 1/2 done, and the rest will get done when I am back on my feet.

I am having an issue with my pictures being blurry in the middle. No clue why, probably a setting or something.  I have a tendency to fiddle with things, then forget what I did, and how to undo it.  Well, time for a shower, and then a nap.  I feel like I ran a marathon, and all I did was get up and get a cup of coffee. Oh, and look at the kitchen- yep the hurricane I call family has been through there.  Sigh~.
Happy quilting everybody,

easy street, part 4

I have been slowly working on easy street , part 4, Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery quilt.

I really can't wait to see what this comes out to be. Bonnie has also created a pattern for a scrappy flying geese quilt, called  geese on a string, based on an antique quilt she found.  I love anything with little scrap pieces of fabric!  This is one I will be making in the near future.  This week will be finding me celebrating Christmas on Tuesday ( my kids are going to their Dad's in Alabama for the holidays), work and cleaning my house, something it is really needing.  I will also be moving sewing machines and tables into what was my son's bedroom, and getting some sewing done, instead of laundry and dishes.  Yeah, 16 days of freedom, just me, my mom and the dog! I'll miss my kids, but they'll be back before I know it.
Hope everyone has a great week,
Happy quilting,
