Fresh Sewing Day ~ December

Fresh Sewing Day


The start of another month, December no less! Let's take a look back at November. When I gather my projects from a single month all in one place I am always amazed at how many I have finished. Many this month were smaller projects, and one was very large (which is why the rest were small! hehe).

The biggest finish this month was my Swoon quilt. It was fun to make, from start to finish, with a few frustrating bumps in between, mostly related to machine quilting a monster! Working on it at the same time that Debbie was working on hers helped motivate me to keep going and to finish! The quilt has been washed (yay, no colours ran!) and has officially made its home on our bed.

Next were a number of pillows finished this month. Two for our bed (one HST design and one wonky stars) to join this one from last month, all out of Swoon leftovers. Also a box style seat cushion for my sewing chair.

And finally, the rest are going to be lumped into the category of "Minis".

I think you definitely win the productivity award. All of those projects look awesome (no, really, they do!) and I love that you used up all those scraps of Hometown to make the coordinating pillows!

Yeah, I'd say November was a good month for you! Everything looks great, and I can't wait to see what you do this month! No pressure!

Look at all these projects! That swoon would have done me in for sure. I have one lonely blok made for my swoon quilt... but next month's a whole new year so maybe I can find time then to get going on it! (Love your box cushion!!)
