A Productive Sat!

I finished prepping for my presentation on Monday, even got copies made of my handout.

I posted charms for the Color Wheel Swap.
I checked in more charms for the Black, White & Grey swap.

I started in on Bee blocks.
I decided to wait on the Dead Simple quilting. I'm thinking wonky lines in a variegated thread.

Before I show you what I've been working on, check out what I got in the mail yesterday:
It was waiting for me on my step when I got home.
I'm in a couple of swaps, so I wasn't quite sure what it was.
I recognized the sender as Quilt Dad.
Did a little happy dance.
Figured out it was the Misfit Quilters Hoop swap.
Slowed down enough to take a picture before ripping it open.

I must share the AWESOMENESS with you.
Misfit Hoop from Quilt Dad!
rec'd from misfit swap
As you can see, Kraken is checking it out in the upper left corner of the pic. She can't believe there is cool ricrac and 2 mini charm packs in addition to the awesome hoop.
It instantly cleared out the tired I had been facing earlier (3 parent conferences...all good ones, but I was wiped).

Back to today....
Here are the blocks I got done:
3x6, Hive #9, Q4, for laineybugdesigns
3x6, Hive #9, Q4, for bignuttyquilter
3x6, Hive #9, Q4, Block for rocco78

I've got a bunch more in partial states of doneness. I may try to finish that stack tomorrow.
I discovered a couple of gaps in my stash (who'd a thought it possible?!) that need to be remedied before I can finish.

I still haven't forgotten the giveaway. I'm going to try to get it up tomorrow after many hours of dance. I'll give you a hint...I love a LARK....
