November Accomplishments

November was a fairly productive month! Lots of little things done and several projects were worked on.
  1. The dog quilt - I finished assembling the quilt, quilted it and bound it. It was very well received!
  2. Quilted the Crumbs quilt
  3. Added the borders to the shop quilt. ** This will be the last quilt I do for the shop as I have quit. There was not enough benefits to working there and it was just getting in the way of my free time.
  4. Made 10 swap blocks for a swap on the TQI yahoo group. I also swapped all of the blocks out.
  5. Finished a patterned dishcloth. Worked on other dish cloths, too.
  6. Started an afghan of granny squares.
  7. Went shopping at Joann's for Black Friday deals!
  8. Assembled and quilted the comfort quilt for Heather's hubby
  9. Knitted a baby cap with double pointed needles
  10. Cut out 2 different quilts that will be made from the same pattern
  11. Cut out 4 RV placemats, 2 pillowcases, and an oven mitt
  12. Assembled most of 3 fruit placemats. They just need to be trimmed up and bound.

Books read

  1. The Longing by Beverly Lewis - The last in a three part series. Lewis is my favorite author of Amish stories.
  2. Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith - I am not up to date on this series and I can't wait for the next one to come out!
  3. Fatally Flaky by Diane Mott Davidson - This was the latest in the Goldy Bear/caterer series set in Denver, CO. I have read all the rest of the books in the series and it had been a while since I read the last book. I forgot how much I adore this series and the characters and the author!
  4. Something Wicked by Carolyn G. Hart - I am enjoying this series and this was only the second or third in the series, but not all of them are available in audio form. I had to actually read this one and it took me a while. I have the next book ready to start reading 'manually,' too. I'm hoping that I can get to the audio versions quickly!
  5. Murder on a Girl's Night Out by Anne George - I started this book on tape a while ago, but my tape player ate the tape and I wasn't able to finish it. After a bit of searching, I was able to find a Book on CD version and was able to finish this one. I don't like not finishing books so I was happy to be able to hear the end of this one, but I won't be continuing in the series. It was not one of my favorites.

So that is it for November! Now, I have to write up my December goals. I got a lot done from what was on my November list, but there are a few things that will be carried over into December. That's quite all right though - everything will get done in time!

Just when do you have time to read, girl?

I'm not even going to TRY to compete with you!
Be blessed,

Way to go! Great month, and I am sure you'll have another one in December, especially with that pesky part time job out of the way ;)

HOLLLLLA! I can't believe that buying 31 yards of fabric in a mere 5 hours didn't count as an accomplishment!!! That's one large feat ;)

BTW - poo on you for quitting.

I'm sure you feel better since you quit working at the shop. It will give you more time to quilt for yourself and more time with your doggies.

WHEN do you sleep, gal?

BTW - I adore that photo of Max.

I read books with my ears all the time I am quilting. I quilt for several hours most days so read a lot of books. I download them from the library.
