Where Did October Go???

I cannot believe it. November is HERE!! Although we had a whole lot of rain earlier in the year, the past month or so we’ve ended up in a drought condition. They say because of the lack of water, our fall colors won’t be as bright. But I know it’s fall when my Pampas Grass “blooms.”

I have been very busy the past several weeks, and I’ll share what I’ve been doing later. But today I want to identify my November One Monthly Goal (OMG) and the #2 project listed on my 2019 UFO (UnFinished Object) Chart.

2019 One Monthly Goal – November

Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal November Link-up.

I missed linking up with Elm Street Quilts OMG for October. But for November, my OMG is to finish (Bind & Label) my Project Linus 2019 Mystery Challenge QAL. I am sooo excited. The QAL began September 21 and ran for 6 Saturdays. It made me so very happy that I was able to keep up and actually complete this wonderful quilt. It is heading to the Long Arm Quilter today, and once she’s finished, I will add a label and the binding and I will have finished it!!

Project Linus 2019 Mystery Challenge QAL- Logey Bear Leads the Way Top has borders. About 55" x 72". So very pleased with how it came out. Pattern is still available online for a $15 donation to Project Linus. Find link at www.projectlinus.org #projectlin

This pattern is available with a $15.00 Donation to Project Linus Here. After February 15, 2020, it will be on sale for $25.00. There are 6 Clues along with detailed videos to help you along the way. Except for the background fabric I only used scraps and yardage from my stash. This top finished at 55″ x 72″ and there was also instructions for larger/twin size. I will definitely be making me a larger one. This will be perfect for a young man I know!

2019 UFO Challenge

American Patchwork & Quilting’s UFO Challenge (#apqresolution) on Facebook, selected Project #2 from our list for November. My Project #2 is appropriate for this time of year. Each year I receive one of the official White House Christmas Ornaments and I want to be able to display them so I began a Wall Hanging to allow me to hang a number of them together. Well, the top flimsy is completed. I need to find backing, quilt, bind and add a hanging sleeve. My first step – Find it! We’ll see how much I get done.

That and a number of other projects should keep me busy for a while. Hope you are getting some stitching done!

Happy Stitching!
