Lovely November

November was a wonderful month for sewing. It really was.

One year ago this month, I made my first quilt. I can hardly believe it's been a whole year. I feel like I have finally figured out how to slow down and enjoy my sewing. The projects this month were such a pleasure to sew. My Memory quilt and pillow at the top were a wonderful culmination of twelve months of scraps. Lori and I had a blast hosting The Long Weekend, and I finally got to experience all the joys and agonies of the fabled Weekender bag. I wrapped up my Modern She Made swap project, and even got to finish a few fun projects in the last week of the month.

The Christmas decorations are up, the calendar is getting full, and I haven't started my gift shopping yet. It's a little overwhelming, but I'm determined to enjoy December this year. These times are too precious to just cross them off a list and move on.

Wishing you a little peace in the middle of the bustle this month!
