Contest open until Saturday...

Hello dear friends,
I know you are just sitting on pins and needles, waiting to find out what block I'm giving away in my contest... well, I decided to leave the contest open until Saturday when I will reveal the block... but I'm hoping someone will guess correctly by then, and we can annouce the winner sooner.  You can guess as many times as you would like....
In the mean time I've got 2 more blocks done... one is Harry Potter, and the other is for a birthday card.
Here's the pics:

You can eliminate the bowtruckle from your contest quest. Here's the one I made, and you can plainly see that it isn't the contest block. (So there's another clue for you... it's not the bow truckle.)

And this is the block that went on a card... I won't tell you who it is for, but the close family will know who's birthday is coming up.

While crusing the blogosphere today I found a quilt made with blocks that I donated. If you'd like to see it, go to Confessions of a Fabric Addict. It's the first quilt pictured - the one with the blue border. They sure did a good job with the blocks. I am really pleased to see it there, and going to a young woman with cancer.... well they know what gets to me, don't they. (Please pray for my daughter. She is having low dose chemo now, in preparation for her next ( her 4th) surgery on March 20th.) Lately, anything cancer gets my donation, if I can manage it. 4patches4hope is another place to send some blocks... they only want 4 patches... well, go there and find out the dimensions and colors that they prefer. It's another cancer charity that will welcome a donation of pieced blocks. Who knows, the good will could help my baby, too.  A little good Karma sent out into the Universe... it couldn't "hoit". And please notice a new button on my blog. It's an upcoming chance to make a quilt for charity - there will be two charities, and one of them is to cancer people. Check it out! They haven't started yet so you have time.
Summing up -
1. check out and guess my block on the blog here.  Leave a comment with your best "guess" and you could win that block.
2. check out my blocks made into a quilt for charity here.
3. check out 4patches4hope
You have your assignments now, report back next time.

You all are my bright spots in life, right now.  Keep on keeping on!
