LOL! I know, Bonnie warned us when she began this mystery quilt the there will be no whining tolerated. So the 350 units of Half Square Triangles of 2" square all get taken with a grain of salt. After all, as Bonnie herself pointed out this morning, that's not as bad as last year with 600 HST's.
I got a late start after serving brunch of bacon & eggs with English muffins and hot tea to my good friends, Alfred and Ilse. They are the elderly couple that are dear friends as well as neighbors. Alfred fell off a ladder trying to repair his roof and although he did not break any bones, he was bruised and shaken up. Alfred is 85 years old and Ilse is 79. We all scolded him for doing such a dumb thing at his age and not telling anybody what he was up to. Felix and Matthew are over there right now to see if they can repair the roof for our friends. Ilse is the one who had sent over the delicious raisin bread babka loaf for our Thanksgiving breakfast.
But I digress. I did cut a few 2" black strips that have a delightful harvest gold star and a bit of red and green in the pattern with some oatmealy bland neutrals. I did starch them as I laid out the doubled pairs to stack for cutting.
That's a good start to Step 3 for now.
