Oh yes, November has been a success for me!
My best finish has been my DWR quilt. This quilt was hand pieced all from scraps and the border was made up of orphan blocks made for me by my Bee a Brit Stingy friends. I LOVE this quilt
I managed to squeeze in a finish for Jenny too - just in the nick of time - now that she is in her own house
My Bee a Brit Stingy block got sent off to Charlotte yesterday: this is a big block at 16.5". And it's not quite a finish, but I an nearly there with my folded fabric Christmas tree
Yesterday a whole group of us gathered around our computers for a web chat with Sarah. This was all very cleverly organised by Rhonda as a baby shower for Sarah. We had all been secretly making for Bean and yesterday Sarah got to open her gifts while we watched and listened (some of us listened, others watched, some got to do both. It was very dependant on our computers!!)
I made Sarah some burp/sickie cloths
There were lots of amazing gifts-no doubt you will see them popping up. We also won prizes. Everyone made a prize to donate and no-one went away empty handed. I made two minis
It really was amazing to be part of this: to hear Sarah as she opened the gifts even though she was hundreds of miles away in the Shetlands. And to interact with people from USA, Canada, Europe....I think there may have been someone from Nz as well? Makes the world a much smaller place
And to finish off - these two popped in last week. They have been poorly, which is not suprising given the start that they had. But they are growing and are very well loved. Not so little anymore
Tonight I will be sitting down and catching up on about a weeks worth of blog reading!
Linking up with Lynne : have you seen her cute barn quilt advent calendar that you can join in with?
