Geese Everywhere

I have Flying Geese blocks everywhere - waiting to be sewn

sewn,  

and pressed, waiting for the other wing.  Not a single full goose in sight.

 

Janet is also working on Clue 2.  These are a few of her fabrics

and she's cutting away

Nancy is working on the geese also.

I think all of us Friday Bee girls are  officially "behind".  Clue 3 is out and we're still working on Clue 2.

 I am linking this up to Bonnie Hunter's On Ringo Lake.  You can join the fun and get all the directions on her website.

Bourbon Balls

It's the holiday season and nothing says Happy Holidays like Bourbon Balls.  This recipe is so easy, it hardly counts as baking.

 

I used the recipe from Sweet Serendipity and these are pretty tasty.

On Ringo Lake

Work on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, On Ringo Lake, continues.  I managed to finish my nine patch blocks before Clue 2 came out, but just barely.

 I am still in the cutting process for my flying geese.

 I have a long way to go, not to mention sewing them into geese.  I do love the colors and I can't wait to see what others in my Friday Bee have done.  

 I am linking up to Bonnie Hunter's Page.  Go and see what people are doing.  Also, it's not too late to join.  Directions are under her tab "On Ringo Lake"

Moving Target

From the Goodreads website:  "In this high-stakes thriller from New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance, Ali Reynolds spans continents to solve a cold case murder and to figure out who wants a young juvenile offender dead.

Lance Tucker, an incarcerated juvenile offender and talented hacker in his own right, is set on fire one night and severely burned while hanging Christmas decorations in a lockup rec room. B. Simpson, Ali Reynolds's fiancé and the man who helped put Lance in jail, feels obliged to get to the bottom of what happened. With Ali off in England to help Leland Brooks at a reunion with his long-estranged family, B. turns to someone else to help out: Ali's good friend and Taser-carrying nun, Sister Anselm.

Meanwhile, in Bournemouth, Leland's hometown, Ali begins to investigate the decades-old murder of Leland's father, which Leland himself was once suspected of committing. With unsolved murders on both sides of the Atlantic, Ali, B., and Sister Anselm are united by their search for answers and the jeopardy they get into as a result.

From the author praised for her "inimitable, take-no-prisoners style" (Kirkus Reviews), Moving Target sends Ali on a trans-Atlantic adventure and straight into the path of a deadly killer."  
   
Well, here's another series that I have completely missed out on.  And, as usual, I didn't start with the first book.  This was an easy read, the story kept moving,  and I enjoyed it after I got past the "fabulously wealthy detective thing.

Colorations

The sides are finished

 

and I have one row of Rhodes stitches to do.  Then it will be off to the framers.
