Moleskin Pouch and the Sword of Gryffindor

I've gotten 2 more blocks done.  The MP was not easy. Can you tell that the draw string shows through where it tightens? No, so why have all those little pieces. I should have made them different colors, dark brown for the string and a yellow streaked brown are too close to make all those pieces noticeable. I do love it - done. If you are a beginner, do not try this at home.

The sword was much easier... and still riddled with little pieces. Still not a beginner piece. I do love how it came out. 

And now a picture of the Christmas cactus - it's blooming a month late.  I was remiss and didn't decorate for the holiday this year... remember the kitchen mess. The plant must not have gotten the message that Christmas was a month ago!!!!

I did promise - in a comment - that I would show my Grandma's quilts one day this week... Didn't get to that yet.  Maybe tomorrow?
Anyway, this is the latest at my house.  What's going on at yours?
