My November block for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee is complete and in the mail just one day late... that is pretty good considering the month of November went by like a crazy, busy blur.
I am so glad I decided to take the time to work on this today. You know how after a really hectic day it is just so easy to sit on the sofa a veg for the evening? That is what I really wanted to do today, but there was this little twinge inside that said "do something creative tonight, it will make you feel better." That little twinge was right - I feel relaxed and accomplished... and now I am going to sit on the sofa and veg after I finish this post.
November's block is for Darci. She requested a Tree block for an unofficial Christmas Tree quilt. She supplied lots of lovely green and red fabrics - none of which were actually Christmas themed fabrics, but all together you definitely get the holiday feel from them. I had so much fun making this block. I love sewing tiny pieces/strips of fabric together so I I pieces two string trees, one tall and skinny and one short and stocky. In between I had fun with a few triangles. I think this is one of my fabric blocks I have made for the bee. I hope Darci likes it.
Check out some of the other cool trees in the Pieced Together Quilting Bee - they are all lots of fun.
This block has me wanting to find time to make lots of fun Christmas crafts and decorations. I am not sure if I will get to lots, but hopefully I will fit in a few in the next couple weeks. Up first is the crochet start garland I started a week or so ago. I have 8 stars done, just a few to go before I can string them together and decorate the mantel.
