Clue Number Three is Done!

Yesterday morning Bonnie Hunter posted the third clue to the new mystery quilt, Easy Street.  I got right on it and started cutting my fabrics.  I had some errands to run so only got the cutting done, and the black-on-white prints sewn onto one side of the purple squares.  I took them to work with me today and sewed the rest in between customers.  I had shorted myself two blocks so I made those two this evening.  I almost forgot to cut the two green squares and slice them in half as Bonnie said to do for a future part of the quilt.  Now I have many other things to do until next Friday when she will publish the next clue.  I have done almost no Christmas shopping and Christmas is just around the corner!  My tree is bare!  I have decided to reduce the dollar amount I spend on everyone this year.  Well-thought-out gifts don't need to be expensive! 


  1. Wow! You must have a great job, if you can sew between customers!

    I agree with you about simplifying Christmas - no need to spend a lot of money. Being together with friends and family is what is important.
