November Sewing with Sandy

 

It’s time for our November show ‘n tell.   We managed to get all the projects finished in time for our Woolie gathering last week.   (Not sure what will happen with our December projects…I’m feeling some stress!)

I chose the projects for this month.    Let’s start with the one from the book “101 Fabulous Small Quilts”.   The name of the quilt is Scrap Squares.   It’s super simple and really fast.  

Here’s Sandy’s.

And mine…  I never got a full picture of it before I started decorating, so here’s where it is in the house.

Next up is a stitchery pattern by Chestnut Junction called “P is for Pumpkin”.   We both chose to add some wool to it.  This is Sandy’s.

And here’s mine.    I bought a kit from Karen at Farmhouse Woolens, so needless to say, I didn’t have to think about a thing.   Love the border and binding fabrics she chose for the kits.

This next project is by Cottage Creek Quilts called “Winter Blessings”.   Sandy made her snowman just like the pattern.

I got the kit from Karen and she had joined the snowman body pieces together, so I did too.   This will be the banner I hang in the outside entry for most of the winter.

We started a new series by Buttermilk Basin called “Basin Banners Thru the Year”.   This is the one for January.  

Sandy’s….

Mine…

And another project from Buttermilk Basin is this little pillow in Stacy’s “Patchwork Pillows thru the year” series.   This is the one for December.  

Sandy chose this pretty teal fabric because she said she’s going to use it in her mercury glass display.   So pretty.

This is mine and I have it in my nest.

Can you believe it’s already December 1st?   I’m just finishing up my decorating so will be showing it to you soon. 

I also went on a quilt shop hop last month with my Calif BFF’s and will show you some of the shops we visited.   We had a great time.  The weather was perfect and the company even better.  

Till next time…

Hugs, Anne

So lovely and hard to pick a favorite...however, nope...can't pick, they are all wonderful. That teal Sandy used was a good one. And I do think "P is for Pumpkin" looks rather fun.
I can't believe it is December 1 either...however, I get to retire after December 2 so I'm rather pleased with it! Warm and happy holiday to both of you! Can't wait to see pics of the quilt shop visits.

Accidentally hit "publish" in the middle of a sentence. I'll try again.
I am always blown away by all that the two of you complete each month. And I love every single project you choose!
