November Goals - 2015

I really don't want to say it, but will - were is the year going to?  Wow, November already.  Seems like we were waiting forever for Spring to appear and now we are heading into our Winter season.  Time to start taking stock of what needs cleaning up before the end of the year.

I looked thru  my books, notebooks full of print outs, and computer files saved.  This one came back to me.  I won this in a give away this year and really should give it some love.

 I can use this one for pleasing my desire for something simple, small piecing and to use along with Slow Sunday Stitching as well.

Maybe I'll even work on these a little bit.  I only need 4 more for a three block setting for a small runner.  So this is doable for this month.

Really, that is my Keeping it Simple plan for November - really!!

I have just two quilts in the 'to-be-quilted' tote.  One small and one large - and would like them done by the end of the year.  One for me and one for the long armer - again, doable.

I do have  Kaaren's Mystery  to play with - those darn borders to decide on.  And, I haven't touched my Heritage Stars in some time.  I am in no hurry on these two projects, even if I have to enjoy them into the new year.

Bonnie Hunter announced the new mystery and the button is on my sidebar.  I haven't done one of her mysteries in some time and just might be tempted.

There is a button for a Trunk Show linky - check it out and join in the fun.

I can't remember where I got the first resource for this, but several LQS are hosting Moda's Sampler Block Shuffle from Oct 30th - Jan 4th.  There is no button I could find, but if you google search you can find shops carrying the free downloads each Friday (and only available one week).  I will try to remind you OR if someone knows a better source and/or button - I will put it up. 

Sewingly Yours,

a few goals to achieve and I am sure you will, I have not started Kaarens mystery quilt or galaxy of stars yet so have a long way to go!

Good plan for November, I have a feeling you'll get more done but this list is doable. Thanks for the heads up on Bonnie's new mystery, I don't like mystery quilts, but I regretted not following her last two.

OH, love the small project you picked! Thanks for the trunk show link....I added it. Not sure if I will try the mystery, but will follow it to see. Love those pumpkin seeds.

I like the small project you picked, too! Very doable! This month starts the craziness that leads into December -- usually. I am determined to not let that craziness into my heart, home or attitude this year!! LOL! Thanks for the affirmation, sweet Sharon!! :)

It always seems like the year gets faster the farther into it we get. Good luck with your November goals. It's getting to the time of year where there is a lot more competing for our attention.

November is a good month for keeping it simple. Everything else seems to be keeping us busy.

Happy Flowers will be the perfect project for this time of the year.

I really love the Happy Flowers project you picked for November!

The basket is a charming project, and the border is nice. I'll believe you keep November simple when the end of the month arrives and we see all of the projects you completed.
