Give & Take November

 I told you the days were shorter! Here we are, 1st December and I haven't even bought the sweets for my advent calendar, let alone unearthed it from the loft!!
Dropping off to sleep last night I suddenly remembered it was Fresh Sewing Day too, today! So, a quick mosaic made while munching my brekkie.
November was a month of giving and receiving, good practice for Christmas.
In November, ladies in my classes made blocks which were made into a quilt top for a Hurricane Sandy Appeal.
I got a couple of blocks made for Judith's Bee Blessed.
I sent off my journal cover to Tanya, my secret partner in a Scrappy Swap. And I received a lovely new mug rug with a matching mini quilt - yippee.
I made a pocket pillowcase as a birthday gift for a toddler.
And I made a mini hamper ready to send off to my Bee partner in the Secret Santa Swap!!
Linking to Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day.
Have a great December - keep calm and uncork a bottle..................


  1. Just discovered your blog through Lilys Quilts - so many lovely projects! That hexagon quilt in your header is a stunner. And I love the paper pieced star in your mosaic!

  2. really nice things! I love the pocket pillow - so cute!

  3. Lovely work - and I love that last sentiment ;o)

  4. Phew - you had a busy and productive month. I am still enjoyiny my notebook cover x

  5. I have taken your advise and said bottle is uncorked! Fabulous November makes Sheila

  6. Yes the great winter darkness is upon us too. I am off to find the advent calendar today, thank you for the reminder. You had a month with some lovely makes, I especially love that mariner's compass.

  7. Yes the friend in the pocket pillow case looks very chuffed. The days are growing hotter here in Oz so untwist ing beer to watch the cricket is our take on the sentiment. Well done England for defeating the All Blacks in the rugby overnight!

  8. That's one creative month! How many bottles have you uncorked so far then? jxo

  9. Oh just buy a box of chocolates and be done with it ;o) Great makes for the month though, I especially like that cushion

  10. What a great thought about getting in shape for Christmas giving! Love the star in your mosaic!

  11. Wonderful makes, that pocket pillow is so cute!
