October and November sewing with Sandy

 

It looks like I’m a little late for the October show and tell and a bit early for the November show, so I guess we’ll just call it “even”.  

 

We only had 3 projects for October because I was gone on a cruise and a bit of other travelling on the East Coast for 3 weeks.  I took some projects with me to work on, but somehow they never made it out of the suitcase. 

 

Both Mr CnW and I caught nasty colds before we ever even made it onto the ship.  Mine ended in a sinus infection.  We powered through the trip tho.  

 

Anyway, I digress….now on with the show.     As always, Sandy’s are first and mine are second.   (I sound like a broken record, I know, but you never know when new blog readers might have just found me.)  

 

This is a Country Threads pattern called “Basket and Pumpkin”

And, finally, we have finished up a year’s worth of banners by Buttermilk Basin.  This one is “December”

And the last one for October is by Plays with Wool, called “Pumpkins”.

Now on to November projects. 

First up is one we did last year, but decided to do the whole series this year to put on the cute little wire hangers.  Sandy hasn’t gotten her hanger yet. 

It’s by Buttermilk Basin called “Sew” Simple BOM.  This one is January.

Here’s what the hanger looks like.  These little mats are 6 inches square.

Next up is a little stitchery from the book “Hollyberry Sticheries” by Kindred Spirits.“

And here’s another Buttermilk Basin design called “With thy Needle – Thy time is mine”.  It’s the one for December.

continuing on….the is a pattern from Quilts by Cheri called “Merry Christmas”

When I was pulling the patterns to get the names for you, I realized we really are huge Buttermilk Basin fan.   Another BOM from Stacy is the Basin Cotton Club.   This one is “January”.  Looks like Sandy and I were both thinking “fall” with our choice of colors.   It’s funny because we don’t talk to each other at all about our projects before the reveal.

Sandy added some cute little pumpkins on hers.

So, that’s it!   Who knows what December will bring?  It all depends on our free time.  So much going on at this time of year.  

 

Thanks for stopping by.  I know you all have busy lives so I just want you to know how much I appreciate you all.

 

Hugs, Anne

You both make the most wonderful items and pick patterns I love too.
I like Cheri's santa, that would be fun to do.

Another wonderful collection of projects. I am always in awe over how much you get done, and I always wish I had been sewing along (in my dreams). You've already done all of that November stuff--like THIS November?!? : )
I'm a huge BB fan, too. Stacy is amazing.

I really look forward to your posts and enjoy seeing all the projects you and Sandy are working on. They are lovely and I like the different choices in fabrics and wools that you make each your own. Keep up the great work and looking forward to Decembers.

Debbie said...

I love how you guys take the same pattern and then the two projects sometimes are so different! Everything both of you make is gorgeous in both your fabric/color choices and finishing. Keep up the inspirational and envious postings-

I also enjoy seeing Sandy and your monthly projects. I love how you both have your own interpretations with the same patterns. You are lucky to have such a wonderful friendship. Happy Thanksgiving.

Always enjoy seeing all of your projects and how neat that you don't even talk to each other before revealing!
Such inspiration and always fun to view!

hugs,

Hello, at the beginning of your post, you mention "new blog readers" but I am not so new to your blog - I found it a couple of years ago thanks to Woolie Mammoth's blog, I believe. However, I don't think I have ever left a comment here. Shame on me! So here are my warmest thanks for sharing your and Sandy's lovely makes with us. I'm also grateful for the time you take to give us the names of the patterns and of the designers: it makes things so much easier when we have to have one of those patterns after seeing both your takes on them! So again, thank you! Beatrice (France, Europe).
