My laptop died, but I knew it was coming, so I was able to retrieve the files that I wanted to save. A bit of a learning curve with the new/old computer, but it’s not too bad. DH had a spare laptop that I’ve adopted so I wasn’t out of business very long.
I’ve done some sewing but most of it is secret, so I don’t have a lot to share. for OPAM, which I’m too late in posting for it to count, I finished a little quilt that I started at our Spring retreat. This is a Christmas gift for one of the newest members of our family.
RSC15 finished up with light/lime green in November. The only thing I got made was my monthly Dresden plate. I still need to make two more for the layout I’m envisioning, so I’ll add a teal, and one other.
My project for Gifted Gorgeousness was finished in early November. I am totally addicted to cross stitch again, which partially explains my absence from my blog. I start stitching and I can’t stop. Here’s my November portion:
And this is what they look like as an entire village!
Since this picture was taken, I’ve added a cute button to each house, and it’s currently at the framer. Thanks to Jo for organizing GG, and keeping me motivated to finish this gorgeous project.
A beautiful postcard arrived in my mail yesterday from Eglea in Brazil. She says it was her first attempt at using the leaf-pounding technique.
Here’s the card I sent to her. I forgot to take a picture, so I grabbed this shot from her blog. Thanks Eglea!!
Early in November I attended by Guild’s retreat. I worked on three quilts, but didn’t finish any of them. Now that Christmas sewing is almost finished, I hope to get back to them. One day a group of us took a field trip to an Amish fabric store. As we were leaving, a young Amish man and an older gentleman pulled into the parking lot in a horse drawn buckboard. One of the quilters commented that she would love a ride in it, and the men heard her and invited us to take a short ride. What a blast. Four old “English” women riding down the road in the back of an Amish buckboard.
I made my list, checked it twice, and went out and did most of my Christmas shopping today. Decorating, baking, and wrapping soon to follow. But chances are, if you need me, I’ll be in my chair cross stitching.
Tis the season……Sunny
