November NewFO - 2013



So hard to believe we are almost finished with another year.  November was so busy for me with things for Hops and vending that this long month really flew by.


Items for the 'For The Boys' blog hop.  I made crayon rollups for my vending booth and the shop and they sold out quicker than you can wink!  Most of my 'boy/men' items did well and there were a lot of comments on how nice it was to find things to buy for the males of the family.


And the chicken quilt for the 'Black Tie Boogie' hop.  I think I have narrowed down the names for Elvis' girls from all those suggestions.  I will get those added in December.


The mini wreath done on the Christmas QAL weekend, simple project table runner, Bea's leader/ender blocks - they should become a flimsie in December, and of course that fun pink cadillac fabric project(s).

I know NewFO is to encourage starting something new with no rush or no finish and no pressure, but I do have a tendency to finish don't I - LOL!!  December will be more laid back with just playing with a few finishes as desired and taking my time with Bonnie Hunter's new mystery.  I thank Barbara of Cat Patches for hosting - be sure to see what others have linked.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Finishes are ok too. I always enjoy seeing what you've made. My Daughter makes Crayon rolls-ups and also ones with pockets for Hot wheels cars and Polly Pockets.

  2. Your crayon rollups are really cute! I know what you mean about boy/men items. Not a lot of people do those because girl/women things are just much prettier! lol

  6. I love those cute crayon roll-ups,they're so clever! Starting is great but finishing is even greater. I think it's time for my self-challenge to polish off some of my projects in the coming months.

  9. Finishing is a good thing, especially since you are so good at it and then begin something new. I think I'll making one of the crayon roll ups for my youngest grand niece - good idea. Thanks.

  12. The crayon rolls are awesome. Always wonder if I made them would they be used and now I know. Great finishes. Keep reminding me to finish things and not start new projects. Also need to keep using my stash and not buying more.
