November Twirls

Gosh, last minute finish for November, iddn't it? This month was tooooo busy. Can you believe this is the last day of November? I'm so glad I passed on doing NaBloPoMo this month. I would have failed miserably! Ahhh, but I finished my November Snapper Year with a day to spare (last night ~ I mean) so all is good in my world. I liked this month's stitch ~ the colors were fun and it went really fast ~ when I actually sat my butt down to work on it! I will kit up December this evening and start work on my Blogoversary prizes. You didn't think I'd forgotten did you? Well, if I hadn't gotten distracted by hot pink fabric and raven's...



Update on Carol's project: We did get the threads for my sister's new stitch. Thankfully, Drawn Thread had the DMC alternates already listed on the chart. Amazing! I like charts like that. Carol changed out the pinkish threads for colors that were more red, to match her house. And best of all, we went to Michael's on Thanksgiving day and got 30% off. Wait, was it 30%? I forget...something like that. Unfortunately...Carol was a little shocked at the fabric...she cannot see it! So the actual stitching part is going to have to wait until Carol has visited the eye doctor and has gotten her some "old lady glasses" like the rest of us wear! Hurry sis!


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Only one more motif and your sampler is complete! Yea! It's such a colorful fun piece.

I love those good ole DMC substitutions too. Lucky you to hit a sale/coupon at the right moment!

"Long arm disease" kicked in for your sister, huh? Happens to the best of us.

What a fun design. Congratulations on finishing November.

Love this block - those colors are just gorgeous! I have an eye appointment on Thursday to deal with my "age adjustment" issue. My arms would have to be about 4 feet longer for me to be able to stitch without a magnifier. :(
I'm so happy that you're going to have a super stitching buddy!
