Simple Whatnots are not so Simple for Me!

I used the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day ruler to make my flying geese (in the wrong size but we won't talk about that) and in looking over the directions I saw that I am supposed to be cutting a notch out (as above in the picture) to help them lay better.  All this time I have used this ruler and I do not remember ever doing this (though I might have then just randomly forgot and stopped doing it!).

I also managed to make the pinwheels in the wrong size.  This sewalong (Simple Whatnots III) has a page of directions for each clue and those directions refer you to a page in the book.  Of course the technique is in the book but we are to disregard the size (at least most of the time) and with my brain fog I cannot seem to get this right.  

So here are the parts with the correct size pinwheels.  I redid them in the right size.

And here is Barb's progress.

So here is my Simple Whatnots mystery so far.

Barb's progress.
Kathleen Tracy decided to do a tiny Fourth of July mystery on her facebook group so I cut that out (Barb too).

I forgot to put my May reads on the blog so better late than never.
