Easy Street step 2

I woke up early this morning and checked Bonnie Hunter's blog, and there was step 2 of her mystery, Easy Street.  So I fed the cats and started cutting.  Five hours and 144 flying geese later I'm done for the week.
I had to get the lead out and finish this step quickly because I've got a dilly of a week ahead.  I have to take the car to the body shop for repair of the damage from my sideswipe accident a few weeks ago.  Luckily, the other driver who was at fault had insurance and their company is covering the repairs.

Then I have to put up all the Christmas decorations inside and outside, including the Christmas village, which takes a day in itself.  I have to clean the whole house and do a grocery trip today, and get ready to visit Mom the week of the 10th after the car is back from the garage.  The only Christmas task finished so far is wrapping what I've bought, but I have't finished buying gifts yet either.  Whatever I buy for Mom and my brother's family has to go home with me on the 10th so better get a move on.

It's going to be one of those weeks where there isn't time to breathe, much less sew, so my plan was to blast through this step this morning and I did it!  Aren't they cute?  Purple is not a color I use very often;  in fact I can only remember one quilt I've ever made where purple played a significant part and I gave it away as a wedding present.  I guess it's time for more purple in my life.
