Monday-Make a list & Easy Street!

Its been a crazy couple of weeks around this house!
I worked on Thanksgiving, but just had to go in for a little while. The DH & I stayed home and had steaks on the grill as our dinner. It was awesome!
It was a little sad not being with our families but I'm over it now. So glad I didn't have to do all that prep & clean-up! I'll get my fair share of that come Christmas (we are having a big gathering of both of our families here!)
I am mighty proud of myself this week in the sewing/crafting front.
I got one stocking made; no picture (cause I am a dork!)
I got another set of borders pieced and on Momma's Sunshine, it basically just needs to go to the L-A-Q now; Nope, no picture of it either.
This past friday, was the release of Easy Street, part I from Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville. Of course, nature is what it is and I had to work! But, that's ok, I got home around 230 and I was rearing to go!
I love these mysterys! There is something so cool about completeing these quilts one step at a time, not knowing what the final product will be. And, I love everything Bonnie Hunter! Her quilts are fabulous!
My goal this week is to 1.) finish easy street part 1 and 2.) finish up 3 more stockings! Should be an easy enough list to work on and complete!
So, I did snap a couple of pictures showing how my step 1 is progressing along. I feel like I am doing pretty good considering that the majority of the weekend was spent on the motorcycle with the DH.
We had a toy run & dinner meet with our great riding group! We put about 300 miles on the motorcycle on Sat & Sun combined. My bootie is a little sore. Just sayin'.

I will say: my strip sets suck. They never seem to lay straight. So, i pulled out the accuquilt cutter to make my 4 patches!
It works pretty fast and is sooo accurate. But only for certain things. These were an easy dream to make.

I have about 90 4-patches completed. I think that is doing pretty well so far. Especially since I have until the next step comes out!
And, just for your viewing pleasure: (and cause its getting that time, Yep, Christmas time!)

Today I am linking up with Bonnie over at Quiltville. And, Sarah at confessionsofafabricaddict.


  1. Nice 4-patches. I too love the quilt is broken up into easy to do steps.

  2. I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn
