I divided the fabric by color - so one quilt is pink and blue and the other is green and purple. I used a layer cake, a panel and yardage to make them. It's a snowball block (and big - so it's easy!).
Then, once I had packaged them up and mailed them away, I spent a little quality time with my sewing machine for myself. I made the Birdie Sling by Amy Butler using fabric and pattern that were given to me by my one blog follower (you know who you are!). It's Joel Dewberry fabric - Ginseng, I believe. The finished product is really quite big. I can practically carry a laptop or a binder. My favorite part (which of course I don't have a picture of) is the lining. I matched up the fabric perfectly across the bottom seam. That's where the extraordinaire comes from... :)
Next up, a slew of cooking. I made tiny black lentils last night and they're delicious! I put two chipotle peppers, a bay leaf, onion, and garlic in while they cooked (I had help - someone posted the recipe, I can't take credit) and they're smoky and tasty. I served them (to myself) over sticky rice with feta and cilantro. And, the best part is they're pretty.
