Busy Saturday

It has been a busy saturday. First off download and print the directions for Step 2 of Easy Street.
Then get cutting and stitching. In between this 4 loaves of almond bread to bake.
Step 2 is completed, just have to cut 64 black and white 2x3 1/2 blocks.

I do not have the rulers Bonnie does so it was a different way around and I have to cut off the dog ears, but that will be for another day. I usually use Inklingo but the brain was on the fritz and I am having printer problems. The link above will take you straight to Linda's directions for the HST triangles.  It will definitely come into play is needed in later steps though its so easy to iron print and cut then sew with no dog ears. I usually do several lots of Almond bread for family and gifts. I have been using a recipe I received from my 2nd cousin about 20 years ago, I have made a slight modification to it but it is still her recipe, and goes down well at Christmas. If I don't hide it the family snack on it before I am ready.

This is one I prepared earlier.

Hope you all have a good day.

Nice flying geese. And the Maine Coon is gorgeous. We have one who is shedding all over everything right now! Gorgeous cats.
