Easy Street---Step One

I've started my walk down Easy Street.  It's fun! Maybe you will join in.   Here are some of the four patches from step one---I was surprised to find I had quite a few "mysterious" black and white prints in my stash.

Happy Thanksgiving

All my life I have loved this Norman Rockwell painting.  When I think of families gathering for Thanksgiving, I think of this.  Nothing more, nothing less.  I love what it depicts so beautifully.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

I'm Ready for "Easy Street"!

I haven't done a Bonnie Hunter mystery for a long time---well, not since "Orange Crush".  So, when Bonnie announced "Easy Street" (I think it's the name that drew me in---) I couldn't resist.  I hope I use up a lot of the fabrics from my stash that I have pulled out from every nook and cranny.

Don't we always say that, and then we end up buying more to complete the color choices and end up with more fabric than we had to start with! I do! It's a vicious circle I tell you! But, I try---

Here are some of my fabrics for "Easy Street" at Bonnie's suggestions. I like to follow her clues when it comes to the fabric colors as close as I can. At least stay in the general color values. It helps with the cutting.   Greens, turquoise, purples, black and white prints and the "constant" which I bought this morning. ooops!  (see I told you it's difficult to not buy fabric)---does it help if I say "it was on sale!" :o) I really truly did not have any greyish tone fabric. I guess I should thank Bonnie for alerting me to that fact. I do have some now!

"turquoise blue"
"black & white"

"constant" grey-ish

Living the life on Easy Street! The mystery starts Nov. 23rd!
Will I see you on easy street? I hope so!
