Let's just say that's there's only one thing about November that counts and that's the Finally! quilt. After 20+ years this quilt is on my bed. It was a big deal for me especially since I love the quilt as much as I loved the idea in 1998. I think that the secret to long lasting designs is white or black backgrounds.
In other news that I had not shared yet, I finished 2 more veterans quilts. These were easy to cut and sew. I'll make more of these in the future.
The other time consuming project for the month was getting these packed for delivery to my sister-in-law. It was so worth it and I can't wait to see them hanging on her tree!
Other projects completed this month include the crochet cheer outfit, the first set of Christmas postcards, a crochet wheelchair blanket and 8 Christmas pillowcases.

Wow...those ornaments are gorgeous! I'm impressed when anyone gets anything done other than surviving the hectic month of December.

I have a quilt on my bed with a white background -so I am sure you are onto something with the "black or white background" theory.

You had a good and productive November. Christmas is right around the corner and I am trying not to waste a minute. My list isn't long - 4 items - but two of them are quilts!

I love your 'Finally!' quilt. Great job.

I still think 'Finally!' was well worth the wait it took to finish. And seeing all those beaded ornaments displayed like that is equally as impressive. I know your SIL has to appreciate the many (!!) hours of work that went into their creation.
