NewFO - November 2014

2014 NewFO Challenge

I just love it when I can start something new and to have someone tell you can with no stress about it - even better, thank you Barbara


My official NewFO was this sweet pattern/kit.  I have been using it for my Slow Stitching Sunday project,too - we all need some slow down time.  I hope to continue stitching with some slow time, while watching Holiday movie time, and just to breath time during December.

Never too hot to Stitch!

And I have enjoyed following along with Lynne with an opportunity to again start Something New as well as finish up Something Old.


For my Something New, playing with the Sew Sweet Simplicity QAL.


For my Something Old I did get both halves of the Lozenges flimsy together, even added another two rows as I felt it wasn't long enough.  But our weather has been so bad I did not get a picture of the full flimsy and it is now tucked away for a 2015 quilting.  Yes, I decided not to add borders to this one - for now.

VroomansQuilts

Although I don't own a lot of books, magazines, etc... - I to have enough to really go thru and use them.  They have been tucked on the shelf too long - too many things catch my eye on the inter-net.


I used my chosen pattern for inspiration and made my own version on a smaller scale.


I completed the Monthly Simple Small Project - a cute pattern for a drawstring bag. Used up some of those leftover candy charms


I participated for the month of November in the Make it Handmade Christmas Challenge - a few plastic bag holders which used up some left over charms.


 Was delighted to get the Row quilt into a flimsy, but this won't get quilted until next year.


And the Charming Star became a flimsy - this one just might jump under the machine in December.


I had fun participating in the Little Letters QAL with Temecula Quilt Company.  This needs a couple of borders to complete the flimsy stage and will go on the 2015 to-be-quilted pile.


And I completed the Cascadia mini quilt - this is just so me!

Of, course I have played with various scrap projects in the works which you may see next month or next year - I am in no hurry to finish those, they are just for fun.

I hope everyone found some time to have fun with their quilting in November.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  12. Sharon, I just love all your projects, especially the scrappy mini quilt! The doll quilt that you made me when we were partners is still my favorite, I look at it everyday as it hangs right next to my 301A while I sew! Merry Christmas to you!
