a pillow, pinwheels on point, and a winner!

Hello dear friends!!  I hope everyone had a lovely holiday last week, and was able to spend it with some loved ones!  This week has started a little slow for me as I had some medical issues come up Sunday night and was in Urgent Care yesterday morning.  With some antibiotics now in my system I'm starting to feel better!  I'm so grateful for modern medicine!   :)

Last week I started on a quilt I've had on my to-do list...Pinwheels on Point.   I adore pinwheels and it is fun to start a new scrappy quilt with them.  I also love them on point so am excited to keep going.  Here are my first 4 blocks.

I'm mostly using Leciens Antique Flower in Pastel, Flower Sugar, and some basics. 

pretty, pretty colors!

Some little fabric spiders.  I don't know why I save these as I'm working on a project, but they sure do make me smile!  I never like throwing them out at the end of a project.  Silly, I know.  :)  I need to find something to do with them. 

About a week ago I received the prettiest pillow from Charise!  Oh, I was so delighted and just squealed with glee when I saw who the package was from!  I knew it was the pillow I had been hoping for!  :)

 I really adore the pattern, and all the little details that made it such a perfect pillow for me!

 Hand stitching and white scalloped lace!!  LOVE it!!

Charise also sent a scrappy leaf key fob!   I really needed one, and it adds a little cuteness to my key chain.  :)
