TwO IteMs

First Item... I completed my SAL commitment for January... yippee!
I made one of the "Thread Catchers" for someone overseas. The fabric shows a wallaby & parrots amongst other Oz inhabitants.

Then I made another one... to go with another gift.

Check out the pattern for this quick and easy ThreaD CaTcHer. It's in the book by Natalie Bird called "Red Home".

Second Item... I managed to finish another block in The Night Before Christmas Quilt which is on my PhD list. It's block 9... so only a few more to go.
Turning this...
Into this...
