Skipping Down Easy Street

Bonnie promised this mystery would be easy on us. So far, so good. Step three were these fun and easy split four patches. We only needed 64. Bonnie encouraged us to do a test block before we sewed them all together, so I whipped out six. Then I sewed 58 more and promptly forgot about those original six. When I went to trim the dog ears, I only counted out those 58. Back to the cutting board and the blocks halfway made before I saw the original six sitting right on my desk. So now I have 64 and six halves! Doh!

Did you know Bonnie has live Quilt Cam some days/nights? Some of my online quilting buddies and I watched pony cam back in the day. The breeders wanted us to call if we saw one of their miniature horses go into labor. It was exciting! Ha! Bonnie sews on one of her many machines and answers questions. It makes Inspector Gadget shake his head and make inappropriate comments. Then I run him out of my studio and turn "Snapped" back on.

This oven fried okra was pretty good. I think I'd thin out the buttermilk more and maybe use less breading. I've been in a Southern veggie mood.

I cooked some collard greens and jalapeno cheddar cornbread Sunday. Linking to Made by you Monday too.


  1. ahoh, it was a wrong and winding street for me to roll down, I gave up at the step 1 with the wrong sized four patches!!! LOL
    I will survive next time.

  2. Sunday must have been a collard greens day; I made some, too. It was the first crop of collards from my garden, so I was really excited.

  3. Nice job, getting closer now!
    On the other hand I hate to see the mystery end.

  4. Bonnie promised this would be easier than her last mysteries and so far she is true to her word! Any errors so far are solely user related!

  5. Oh, I love the colors you're using for Easy Street. And now, with the mis-counting, you have the start of another project! *wink*

  6. It has been WAY too long since I've made Fried Okra. YUM!

  7. You are cruising right along on those blocks! I'm impressed. How many "steps" in the mystery?

  8. Your patches look fantastic. Clue 4 is nearly here – woo hoo! That cornbread looks delicious.

  9. Just now finding time to look through all the linky photos, and HAD to stop in to tell you that I ABSOLUTELY love your color combination for the Step/Clue 3 split 4 patches! OH...and the food looks pretty good, too! We raise okra and lot of it gets pickled....the rest FRIED. Need to try your baked method. Thanks for the idea.

  10. Thanks for making my mouth water.......both with your Southern cooking, and your clue #3! Best wishes!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
