"Whew"...I thought I'd never get here...but I finally found my way down Easy Street for step 3! This post will be short and sweet because I have asparagus waiting to be panko'd and baked (oh my, it is wonderful!!!) Let me see if I can find the link....(I'm so easily distracted, but we're talking some really lip smackin' spears here)....
Ok, I'm back and pretty quickly I might add..to find the link I needed to visit my Pinterest account and that's sometimes trouble...I get there and start looking to see what everyone is pinning...and then I forget why I went there...but this time, I "focused"....so click HERE to see this sooo deelish dish from Slender Kitchen - it's what I'm making tonight. Yum!

Now back to the subject...which was....oh right...Easy Street - Step 3.
The first pic...my original colors (just like Bonnies...well sorta)...let's see, we have Purples and Teals. I added some Aquas because I just couldn't make up my mind...did I want just Teals? I loved the Aquas too and decided they really wanted to play together...
All 64 patches are done...fini...complete...YaHoo!!!
Here are the patches for the 2nd version I'm making with Jo Morton fabrics...which reminds me, I never did show you a pic of those flying geese....in this pic you'll see "two" - there are 4 more made in the 'wings'...(the rest are in a "holding pattern"...but they will be made....eventually...maybe).
I'm NOT trying to guess what Bonnie Hunter has up her sleeve - but enjoyed laying these blocks out just to see what I could make when it was 'picture time'.
I think I 'promised' to show you my 3rd version 'next time' - which is technically 'this time' - so here is Step 1 - because that's as far as I've gone. I think I was just in love with the four patches - all that 'spinning' amused me (I'm easily amused)...if flying geese had been FIRST...there would be NO version's 2 or 3...haha. I'm really going for something different....and still waiting for inspiration....this IS a mystery, after all.
The dotted fabric WAS my 'constant' - the multi solids, my background. Then Bonnie confessed that our 'constant' was done with this step- over with - finito... and my first reaction was "What??? But I LOVE this fabric!". So now I'm debating and pretty close to deciding that my "dots" will be my new background - the solids my new 'constant' - that of course opens up a whole new gaggle of geese possibilities....now you can understand why I'm going to let the geese stew a little longer....as well as step 3. I'm waiting for one of those 'light bulb' moments....it'll come...I am patient.
To see what everyone else is up to these days on Easy Street...give a clickie HERE!
Before I go (asparagus IS breaded and baking and we're counting down the minutes...just in case you were wondering)....I would like to invite you to a Party...click HERE for yesterdays post and a chance to win a prize as we help Quilting Gallery celebrate their 5th birthday. Be quick though - the deadline to enter is Dec.15th.
And last but NEVER least....clicked a pic today of my sweet Mom and thought I'd share.
When I first saw her today...she was a little out of spirits...but after 2 Berry Oreo Cookies and 3 Three Muskateers....I scored a SMILE. I told her I was going to share her picture with my quilting friends. She couldn't imagine why anyone would want to see her...haha (but between you and me, I think it tickles her Pink! )
Mom is sitting in her ALF 'living room' in front of a Christmas quilt I made a few years ago. I'm a little embarrassed I can't remember who designed the fabric...it's on the tip of my tongue...I just can't spit it out (dontcha just hate that?)..but it's a cute jolly Santas panel surrounded by pieced pinwheels, simple framed blocks and lotsa borders...ho ho ho. Since the fabric is long gone I can't hang the quilt in the shop (that would be a tease)... I was glad to share it with Mom and her friends...I hope it makes them smile.
Thanks for stopping by...now it's time to eat! "Chow"

P.S. Supper was ready before I could get this post finished...the Spouse made our favorite awesome Glazed Salmon (I'd share the link for the recipe but the author now charges to access her blog - I'm so glad I copied it down when it was still free - sadly I don't visit her anymore - and since it's not MY recipe, I don't feel ethical writing it down here)...we also had Baked Butternut Squash and the Asparagus rocked...in case you're wondering...haha
I'm a 'weight watcher' and this was a 10pp meal - worth every bite! I'm thinking maybe after the holidays I might add a "My Fav Eats" page to my blog - with my favorite recipes that are WW friendly...maybe even ask those passing by here to submit some of theirs too...(and this from a gal who never liked to cook - I still don't, not really...but I sure LOVE to eat!)
