Is it December 3rd already??? Sorry I’m late with this month’s post, but I took a few days off over Thanksgiving. I had some other things to do that did not involve quilting or the computer. And now I’m struggling to get back at it.
I can’t believe there are only a few days left in this year — where has it gone? I don’t have near enough stuff done yet, and it’ll be time to start a new year in just a few weeks already! Are you ready for that? I’m not . . .
But here’s what I accomplished last month — not very much block wise. (I was at the longarm quite a bit.)
I made my guild exchange block . . . that’s it. ONE.
I did make a few blocks for a commission quilt, but I can’t show them yet, and I won’t count them until they’re all done, so you’ll see those later on.
I didn’t make many blocks because I’m in more of a finishing and cleaning up mode than I am in a piecing mode. I’ve been making pillowcases to meet my goal of donating 25 pillowcases to my guild for their pillowcase drive, and I’ve been finishing up some smaller easy scrap quilts to try and meet my goal of finishing 25 scrap quilts this year. I’m only about halfway on that one — I may not make the other half in the next 28 days — haha! And I’m still trying to unearth my cutting table, and still at the longarm quite a bit.
So how did you do? I’m anxious to hear! We only have a few more days to make blocks this year. Our monthly block goal this month has to be 26, for our yearly total of 350 — woohoo! That’s less than one a day if you start now, by the way.
I have the Project page updated, and I’ll add all the new totals in sometime mid-month. The October prize winner is Marcia, who has a total of 424 blocks so far. She won’t have to sew at all this month, if she doesn’t want to!
I hope you’re all taking time to enjoy the season and not rushing around too crazily. Take time to breathe and enjoy a bit slower pace till the end of the year. That’s what I’ll be trying to do. Happy stitching!
