First, let me just say now that posting for the rest of the week might be hit or miss. We are having some internet issues that I think is a bad modem. We have a service call for Monday but in the meantime I'm having all sorts of issues trying to get my website editor to load. So if you don't hear from me until MOnday or Tuesday, that's why.
I had 2 goals for November:
- make Christmas postcards
- make sample quilt tops for Paula Nadelstern.
I got the quilt tops done for Paula nadelstern and hope that I can share then in color by the end of the month. I also hope to get them quilted and bound so they can be donated by the end of the month too.
I am sooooo close on the postcards! I've been finishing the edges and I hope to get the bling added today. If I can get to the internet to edit my website I'll start posting the finished cards tomorrow.
Because of having Laura here to visit and going to the beach, it wasn't much of a quilting and sewing month. It was a crochet month and I finished 3 projects and used 13 balls/skeins of yarn. I have 4 projects in process right now. Crazy.

For December I'm working on finishing up the postcards this week and I sidetracked into making more donation hats because I'll be making a delivery of donation items this weekend. I figured I'd see how many hats I can get made with this O'Go yarn this week. Joann had this on a deep discount this week and now that I'm working with it I know why. But it's working fine for hats and they will be very warm hats.
Next I have to get busy dyeing some Christmas gifts and once that's done I want to focus on quilting some veterans quilts and get Mom's queen size quilt....and relax and enjoy the holiday.
