Grand Illusion part 3 and other goings on

Finally got to use some of the greens in Grand Illusion, Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt, Clue #3 is finished, eagerly awaiting clue #4.
Here are the two by fours for clue#3.
 Here are all the clues to date, sorry for the shadow.

Talkin' Turkey is coming along. I don't have all the units made, but just had to do enough to try out a couple of blocks. Bonnie's is all red, I decided to do mine scrappy. This quilt is from her book String Fling.  I think it will be quite lovely done scrappy. Love to bust some stash using her patterns. 

 And in the evenings, a bit of knitting. I find knitting so relaxing at the end of a long busy day. this is a sock, should be nice with 4x4 ribbing all the way to the heel .

 On the design wall Missouri Quilting Disappearing Hour Glass. I have had this bundle of Kaffe Fassette Fat quarters for so long, love his fabrics. I think they worked perfectly in this top. Must get this one sewed together soon.
My granddaughter helped me get the tree up and  decorated and the  house spiffed up a bit. We also took a morning and baked cookies. Love the smell of cookies baking, especially ginger cookies. I hope you have had a happy busy week too .
Here is Bonnie's Monday linkup, you can check out a plethora of blogs and see how others are coming along with Grand Illusion. Mystery Monday Link Up

Love the "Missouri" quilt top. As for everything else, you are way ahead of me...I have another 5 units of GI Clue 2 to assemble and have only printed Clue 3...but...like you, I have Christmas goin' on here. So.

It's all good! :-)
