As I write this post I'm still at the river with my friends and I just wanted to share the spectacular sunset from last night. We are having a lovely time.
I even got the rest of my postcards stitched! When I get home I still have a little work to do on each design but it won't take too long to finish them and I should be able to get them in the mail by December 10th. That's my first goal of December. The postcards were my main project for November
As I look back over November I'm really happy with everything I got accomplished, starting with these 2 quilts that I quilted. One is a raffle quilt for my quilt club and the other is a quilt for a friend.
On top of those, there were 6 veterans quilts. One of them is one of my quilts so, hopefully, that will be a finish for December.
I even had 2 weeks of vacation during the month and used a good bit of that time to crochet some hats and finish off a scrappy donation blanket. I finished 8 hats and the 1 blanket.
