I feel like our November woods. A little bit of color is trying to stay, but Mother Nature and Father Time are battling. Morning mists, morning frosts, morning snow - all fade away with the warmth of days sun. 2011 is fading into 2012. Projects done, projects that need to be done, and those we look ahead to. Changing our creativity with the changing season.
Almost to the end of the Raspberry Rabbits 12 of Hearts BOM. I still haven't decided on fabric(s) for finishing. Do I want a bright, do I want a dark?
And on the design wall - the finishing of the Sew Happy Sew Along embroidery. I may have to take this to my LQS and browse fabrics as nothing made me happy within the stash. I think it is the scrap quilters stash syndrome (is their such a thing) as just tired of the same old. Again a bright modern, or a muted country?
I never tire of playing with my small bits. When in a 'think' spot, I like to pull the barrel of pre-cut tinies and play. I know, who cuts 1.5" squares - I do! And they make for wonderful things as you get the fun of dark, light, bright, muted, spring, summer, fall, winter - all those bits of projects are in there.
I had to play with something new. This little clutch - The Dumpling - found here. Not sure it is something I would use, but know a few pre-teens that might like it.
Be sure to check out the Henry Glass Blog Hop that started Sunday. Meet some of the designers and pick up some inspirations as well as some free projects.
You can still join in the 12 Days of Christmas Sampler.
Check those projects and think about joining in the SewCal 2011 Christmas Quilt Show.
I added a new button for a project coming in 2012 - 'Made in Cherry' found over here.
Box #1 - Shannon of NuNus Quilt World - She is ready to pass on the stash, so pay her a visit.
Box #2 - Staci of The Confused Quilter will be opening for comments Tuesday.
"November woods are bare and still;
November days are clear and bright;
Each noon burns up the morning's chill,
The morning's snow is gone by night.. "
