November-December threads

October 31 brought a great surprise!!! Was one of the Block Lotto winners. So, all during November I received lovely mail from all over the USA and even Australia. When I had all my winnings I took them to the "Stitchers" and put them randomly on the design wall to show (off). Now I have to wait patiently until I have time to make the quilt. Of course I also have to decide how I want to finish it.

November 9 - day of the monthly lace meeting, this time at Lali's. She had a wonderful dessert for us.

I felt also very good because I was able to make another lace symbol for my Lace Adventcalendar.

November 10 - monthly CR Quilters meeting. We met at Janet's house because the CR ballroom was needed for something else. Janet gave a great workshop.

In the evening - Church Mice meeting - great show+tell

And an interesting lesson about English paper piecing especially hexies.

November 16 was the day of my church's Holiday Market. I demonstrated bobbinlace making. In the process i made progress on another Chrismon in Lace series. Started it the night before and finished it that evening.

A visit to Nashville finished William's socks. He was very happy.

December 10 was the "Stitchers for a cause" last meeting and potluck party. I did manage to finish my latest top. I didn't want to come back in the new year not remembering what I had planned to do. Can't wait to see this one quilted.

December 14 - monthly lacemakers' meeting, this time in my house (like every year ... It's a tradition).

No lace was made but this paper star.

Needless to say that my queendom is in a mess in this "before Christmas time". Ha-ha, no photo! But I think the New Year's Day resolution is to get my queendom organized again.
