1-2-3 All caught up!

Oh yes people.
I finally found a full day of mojo and determination!
And of COURSE, I had to get myself all caught up on Bonnie's mystery!!!

Step 1 had been partially completed; the day started with finishing up the 4-patches. 

Despite having just made 600 flying geese for the Hawaii Sunset quilt not so long ago, cutting into the purples for Bonnie's step 2 had me motivated for much of the morning and early afternoon.  I'm worried that some of the purples might be a bit too dark to contrast against the black I chose as my background, but, I'm going with it.

And I realized too late that someone had altered my camera settings, so my pictures are blurry.  I simply don't have enough energy to care about getting better pics right now.

LOVED moving right along into step #3 and busting out the orange!  By mid afternoon, I was all caught up with Easy Street!  Get I get a hoorah!?!

Not ready to clean up the shop.... 
I pulled out the package I received from Andra containing our swapped units for Hawaii Sunset.  After only a quick organizational moment, I grabbed the 9-patches, and together with my previously cut units, I gave each of them an inner border hug.

If one stares at the left block too long, the mind could get hypnotized!  That's one wild block of patterns.  And then, the RICH gorgeousness of the red/yellow/block combination of the block on the right:  yummmmy!

STILL not ready to clean up shop, my OCD took over!  The flying geese sent from Andra needed to be organized into cute lil' matching pink piles.

So now, all the units for Hawaii Sunset are cut, organized and piled.   What a pretty sight;  ready for more attention, but not at this moment.  It was finally time to turn everything off for the night and join my family {{I think they thought I died downstairs}}.
Happy Sunday

HOOOOO RAH! You go girl! I was wondering if you were still in this very slow moving mystery. I am doing Orca Bay in between the steps for this years, good thing too, because I want that one done. I am glad you found your MOJO today, and accomplished bunches!
