Where did November go?

There is always some element of adventure when one goes away but the fun of returning home exceeds that of leaving for sure. Our capital, Ottawa is very beautiful at this time and I am grateful and happy to report it was an uneventful trip.
I did miss my ♥♥husband ♥♥and my sewing machine but I did manage to get some appliqué pieces ready for my stash. Never leave home without it! (I always travel with a bag of appliqué pieces to baste.)

I am saddened to report I did not get all the pieces I had submitted to do for the month of November....ooooh (This is not very good leadership, sorry Kelly) My calender for this month was unbelievable ( diffinately not an excuse but a true fact) and I did not take the whole week of going away into consideration when I submitted all my November projects.

I did manage to get the short version of the Birchwood Lane house done. This is a wall hanging but I want the lap size so that will be a December submission

I also made my BOM and will be doing my December one as well

This is done in Kansas Winter..

One project I had not submitted was the quilt "Love Blooms" which I wanted to donate to our church...I put other projects aside and did finish that one which is now being quilted so I will submit this project for December to bind.

As soon as I had the name of my partner for the
I put all my other projects on hold.

I will not share any eye candy of this as I want it to be a surprise for my partner.

So in December I will finish my November UFO's


  1. Beautiful as always, Joan. But I want to know, did you miss your husband or your sewing machine more?

  2. The house quilt is wonderful!! Love it!!

  3. is it too late to post our possible december finishes? I just finished my one and only Christmas present and am ready to get back to my UFOs!

  4. Where did the time go? I just finished the binding on my Half Pint wall hanging last night. Which reminds me that I need to tell Kelly before the end of today.

    Anyhoo, WOW! I just love the Birchwood Lane house - BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Hi, Joan: Just want to make sure that you received an email from me this morning (Fri, Dec.4th)?
