November Accomplishments

While November was not quite as productive as October, I still feel like I got a lot done.
I quilted up this small quilt while practicing different free motion stitches on my machine. I'm anticipating teaching a free motion sampler class in April. It also was bound.
I pieced, quilted, and bound this quilt for Mathew for Christmas. It has minkee on the back.
The major accomplishment and the one I am most proud of is finishing my Wolf wall hanging for Paul. I've been working on it for 5 years and it feels so good to finally have it done!
I made this fabric book up for Mikaela and Mathew. It was our activity for day number 3 of Advent. Both daddy and mommy read it several times.
I made these samples up for a hexagon table topper class I taught. While they were good and illustrated the point, I don't think they were as helpful as I imagined.
The almost finished topper to show how it was to look.
I quilted Christmas coins. I'm still not sure if I am leaving the last section, so I haven't put the binding on it yet.
Mikaela helped me and we made this wall hanging for their bedroom.
I also pieced and quilted and bound the minkee Carpenter Star quilt for Mikaela for Christmas.

December has seen a slow start. Hubby and I are working the 3rd job every night this week and while it is going fast and is easy, it's a little too much with small children. I just do not have time to get everything done I need to do. We'll be done tomorrow night, so I am not going to get too bent out of shape. I still hope to get a lot done before Christmas and then I am hopeful to get all my samples finished too.
My goals for December are lofty, so I figure if I finish half I'll be lucky.
- Rubic Star Border
- Quilt & Bind Mini Sampler
- Barbados Bag - Yellow/Gray
- Western Swoon Wall Hanging
- Day Break Table Topper
- Advent Calendar
- Bind Christmas Coins (fix maybe)
- Blue/White Quilt for MIL
- Mathew's Tag Blanket
- Mikaela's Robe

You got a lot done in November, and yes, lofty goals for December. As long as you don't beat yourself up for not finishing, that's a good thing! Love the wolf!
