Gifts and Today's Sewing

I got some great gifts from some of my quilty friends this year!  Barb made me a Packer scissor holder which I just love!  Becky made me the coolest owl ever and a pretty potholder/dishcloth and some jam.  We used the jam on pb and j when we went to the ostrich farm yesterday.  It was delicious!
Ros made me and Kathy each a chicken pincushion!  I think it is so cute...showed it to my mom and she said--I want one.  I said, I don't have the pattern!  LOL!  Mine is the blue one.  Love pincushions!
After the kids got on their plane today I sewed block twelve of Ooh Rah!
Here are all twelve blocks!
I laid out the blue sashing fabric (before I cut it) and plopped the cornerstones on it to see what it would look like.
This one will be done before long and off to Alycia for a Quilt of Valor recipient!

 Next I talked Kathy into helping me cut (so I could sew) this Lil' Twister--tiny!  We have the process down now!  So now I have Barb's and mine to quilt.
I also added two or three more Moth in the Window blocks to the pile.  I really love making these blocks!  They just go together so quickly and I don't often work with plaids so that is fun too!
Tomorrow is NYEve already.  We opted not to do the mystery that popped up last minute in my online group.  It has a zillion tiny pieces in it and lots of precutting and sewing that we just did't have time to do before tomorrow.  I am not sure who the designer of it is either...if it is a Bonnie quilt I may change my mind, but it it isn't I am good.  Kathy will work on her Grand Illusion quilt and if Bonnie doesn't surprise us with another clue I will work on Moth in the Window and/or a baby quilt since I found out two of my Neff cousins are pregnant--Kai Len with her first and Jamie with her second!  They are both due in May.  Thinking about Dancing Nines or Princess Crown....we shall see!
