Since I finished mine early (before the last week of the month) I got the sneak peak at April blocks. Shoo-Fly! I love this block. I'd love to win and make a "Shoo-Fly, Don't Bother Me' quilt. Here's my 9. I'm loving this 'Wonky' year of blocks. I took a wonky stars class with Gwen Marsten last year, and this is just her kind of stuff! Oh, how I'd love to visit her on Beaver Island, MI! It is such a refreshing change to do wonky, when I usually do DJ or SBS blocks! So tiny, so precise. These are anything but precise. Don't you love the green one, middle row of the right hand column. She seems to be skipping and waving all at once!

For the handmade item I whipped up another pincushion. I couldn't part with the other one once Carol spotted the piggy in her. Now that's all I can see from that angle too. Plus the new one isn't wonky. So I'll keep the wonky piggy cupcake, and send the new one with the flower on top.
I'm actually including a real basket in the swap (not a requirement), bunny tissues, Jelly Bellys, a bobble-head bunny, and an exercise ball for hands that says "When life gives you scraps" on one side and "make a quilt" on the other.
Hope the receiver likes everything.

It was perfect to work on today. Primitive doesn't have to be exact or perfect. Primitive is primitive. So here's the results of my effort. She doesn't have a name yet, but please tell me what you think she should be called in comments. Her bucket/basket is empty, but I'll work on that. Her pocket is empty too, but I really think she needs something neat in it. Any ideas?
