Sunday Sewing Day :)

Today Kathy and I went over to Megan's to show her how to do clue one of Bonnie's Easy Street Mystery. It is her first mystery!  Ayla wanted to be crafty too so I let her work on knitting my dishcloth.  I taught her mom a year or two ago and she taught Ayla.  Funny how easy it is for the younger set!  She took right to it with the wrap to make the hole and all!  
  
Working on twosies that quickly became foursies!  Kathy helped with the ironing and some of the cutting too.
While Megan (below) worked on her four patches for Easy Street, I worked on light and dark four patches for Tobacco Road.  That is the only mystery of Bonnie's that I haven't done, so I figured I would just do it at my leisure.  I pulled my two inch strips and just went for scrappy lights and darks.  Kathy had already made 18 of the four patches, now we have what we need for the whole quilt.  
Megan decided to do half of Bonnie's amounts and make a smaller quilt for her first mystery so she was well into that when we left to watch the Packer game.  Don't even ask how that went, it isn't over yet, but it isn't looking good!  Despite that I made two Packer green and gold Moth in the Window blocks while watching the game.  Bonnie posted about her Moth in the Window http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/11/my-moths-have-flown-coop.html and even mentioned misplacing the block I sent her (I know it will turn up with others she has put in the perfect place, lol!) and that got me motivated to add to my blocks.
 So after those two, I had seven.  I wanted more!
 I did four more.  Pretty happy with how they are coming out even though I was set up downstairs and using my mini iron which really doesn't get hot enough for these homespun fabrics.  Thinking I should dig out my Dad's leftover plaid shirts and see if any of them would work in here too!
Well I better get busy with my handsewn hexie...I haven't started it yet and the game is 3/4's over.  Then I better get some prepping in for teaching this week.  Back to work tomorrow!

Looks like a lot of fun. You never seem to sew alone. Easy street is looking great.

I would love to be doing the new mystery but I MUSt make SMM first.
Dr. says I can sew as long as I can tolerate it but I will give it a few days!
