Lily and Wil and other things too.

My bundle of Lily and Wil fat quarters arrived last Friday.
I bought them to make a quilt for my new grandson who is due in June.  I wasn't sure what I would make and then lo and behold Anne Sutton put up this gorgeous free pattern on her Bunny Hill blog.
So instead of my To Do list getting shorter, it's getting longer again.

This gorgeous block arrived on Friday too.  It came with some delicious owl fabric and a gorgeous owl card.  Alethea is very funny and wrote in the card
Can't decide whether to call it Owl-vis, Owl McPherson or Owl-Capone.  Nevertheless he/she comes from Owl Catraz.
Made me smile all weekend.  Thank you so much Alethea, I love this block.

I'd love to show you what I've been stitching over the last few days but it will have to remain a secret until December.  I'm in the Squilters Christmas Stocking Swap and I have been making a Christmas bag and presents for my partner, Lindi.  I'm aiming for 25 presents so she will have one a day to open in December  leading up to Christmas Day.  Luckily I've got all year to make them.

I also made a block for my March swap partner in
here is a small sneak peek.  This is off to Teresa in Portugal.
P.S.I'm off to spend the day with my grandson,Wil, so I'll draw the giveaway winners tonight but the competition is now closed. Thank you to for so many fabulous comments and special thanks to my lovely followers.
