Hi all,

Since it is November already….were is the year going?….I thought I’d better get my block done for October in the Bee in Oz.

November 2011 002

This is so nice and bright. Linda is making these 16” blocks into quilts for charity.

This block is for a sampler quilt I am making from Where the Wind Blows fabric. The pattern for this one is from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks magazine volume 2.

This one for for the same quilt, and the pattern is from Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks magazine Volume 3.

I have also been working on my Colour Block Placemats and Napkins…

This is the Napkins. I am using DS Quilts fabric for everything except the white, which is from the Sunkissed range.

Now I need to get to work on the placemats.

And finally, yesterday mum and I had a bit of a sewing day.

I made pyjama’s. I used a bit of left over knit from making baby things when TP was born 6 years ago. It has embroidered teddies on it. And finished off the cotton pants with some ric-rac.

Mum worked on a dress for me that I cut out a while ago but my machine refused to sew the fabric….her’s had no problem with the fabric so obviously it is my machine – very frustrating. Anyway, I will model the dress when it is finished…..I don’t know if you should look forward to that! haha

Great post with lots of lovely projects on the go. Yes, I'm also baffled that we have November already. Did I not just write all those Christmas cards??? I can't believe I have to do it again so soon ;). Have a happy Melbourne Cup Day!

It's November and I just had to write the date out, it's 1.11.11, an auspicious day indeed. I love the little blocks and the placemats are so lovely. I've never made pj's, yours look great, maybe I could try make the kids some pants and buy the tops.
