Sewing at Becky's House!

This morning Becky and I met up at "Market on the Move" and got lost of veges for cheap.  Then we got to sewing!
 Borrowed Becky's pictures to show you what she was up to today while I sewed at her house.  Lots of Christmas present making ticked off her list!  Love the skirt for her daughter, pillowcases for both kids and a gift for a friend....
 and best of all, she is making these little stars with leftover bits and pieces of fabric from any clothes she makes for her kids.  Eventually she will have a whole quilt full of memories.  I love this idea and wish I would have done something like this when my kids were young...maybe for the grandkids one day when I have them!
 Meanwhile, I did clue 5 of Easy Street.  These went together so well for me!  I trimmed just the inner part like Bonnie showed and they all line up so nicely.  These are just fingerpressed so they didn't behave for the picture, but loving them.  Becky had to give me one turquoise square because I was one short at last count (unless I miscounted when I barretted them in tens).  I am linking up with Bonnie at Quiltville if you want to see how everyone else is coming along on Easy Street!
 Kathy is caught up on clue four and has her clue 5 cut, but didn't sew at all today.  Maybe tomorrow!
 I also sewed ALL my hst's for the NYE Mystery!  I trimmed the pages and cut four of them but have lost of cutting left to go...I am using triangulations paper which I find to be really easy and accurate for me.  I want all the "presewing" done so this quilt zips together on NYE.  I also made about five spools at Beckys' and here is my stack so far.  I need to take a picture of them on the design wall soon!
In other news, Hannah got her box of Christmas gifts today and Mac got a slip that his was in!  YAY they arrived in time!  Here is Hannah with her cat GreyBear posing with her Anita's Arrowhead Christmas Quilt.  It matches her Christmas tree skirt and now she has an official Christmas quilt!
