All Caught Up on Grand Illusion and...

 Kathy got me this fabulous quilty angel for Christmas and I hung her in my sewing room.  LOVE IT!
 Despite being at my mom and dad's until Saturday late afternoon, I did manage to get our easy clue 5 done!  Love being all caught up and ready for whatever Bonnie throws at us!
 Here is all of it together!
I spent a good part of today sewing (part of it watching the Packers win!) with Hannah.  We watched quiltcam and Bonnie shouted out to us which was fun!  Cannot believe Bonnie will be here in a few weeks!  I made these five Moth in the Window blocks to add to Coleman's quilt.  Also managed to get a Wild and Goosey made--really shocked this happened this week!  
Hannah wouldn't let me take a picture with her in it today (didn't do her hair, etc.) but will get one tomorrow.  This is the project she worked on all day today.  About six or seven years ago she started cutting this one in Wisconsin...when we moved I took it with me but it didn't see progress til now.  She is calling this "Greybear" after he kitty who is 16 years old now.  I am going to get Ros to quilt it for her for her birthday (heads up Ros).  
 It was really fun to have a relaxing sewing day with Hannah!  Mac came up and went through pictures and asked me questions about them and such.  We also took a break and went out and had smores by Kathy's new firepit.  I am trying to stick to my Weight Watchers, but Christmas, parents house, travel, eating out and kids do not make it easy!
I will be linking up with Bonnie at Quiltville in the morning!  http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2014/12/mystery-monday-link-up-part-5.html?m=1
Here is Mac, Hannah and I in Wickenburg on Friday--went with my parents and shopped.  I am wearing my new long sleeve shirt from Mom and Dad and holding my new Vera Bradley purse from Mom and Dad--we were all spoiled this year!

I am in awe that you not only kept up with Bonnie's clues but finished all those other blocks. You go girl!

By the way, I am still hoping for a Broncos vs. Packers Super Bowl. If not the Packers, maybe the Patriots.

No sewing for me since before Christmas, but I hope to get to work a bit more on clue4 and make the very easy clue 5. I wish I could say that I was done with clue 4 but I have a ways to go. Congrats on being all caught up.
Boston weather is reasonable not freezing but we are still in doors!

Love your angel! You have been so productive, I feel quite lazy in comparison. Everything you've done looks so good!

Love your wild and goosey and moth blocks. It cracks me up every time I visit your blog and see everyone wrapped in quilts with attitude on your header. So much fun!
