Where did November go?

I can’t believe it has been more than a months since my last post.

I have been working on things, but mostly things I can’t show here yet (you know, because of the upcoming holiday).  One thing I can show you is the result of a wonderful workshop we had at Crazy Quilter’s guild on the mariners compass.  I have dabbled with paper piecing before, and this time I really ‘got it.’ Our instructor was Cheryl Smith, and she explained and demonstrated the technique so well that I managed to make a sample section in the workshop. Then I went home and over the next couple days I pieced my first compass.  I used Christmassy fabrics for this one, and am very happy with the result. Here is the picture:

It is about 26″ square and will be a nice little wall hanging or table topper. I doubt if I will have it quilted in time for this Christmas, but maybe by 12/2012.

I also worked on one of the brown bag round robin quilts, but can’t show you that, either. Oh, and I made a big tote bag for my friend Lynn and gave it to her when we were up north for Thanksgiving, but somehow I never got a picture of it.

Our artificial tree came out of the box yesterday and perhaps today we will get the lights and ornaments on it.  I have a new ornament this year — a “see rock city” birdhouse — that I can’t wait to hang on it.  If I don’t post again this year, have a wonderful Christmas.
