Where did November Go?

Here we are at the end of November, where did the last four weeks go? Or the past eleven months?

Caroline was the first to arrive this morning, as she would only be with us until 12, as she would be teaching this afternoon.

Caroline was followed by Amanda and Chris soon after. Alison had other plans today.

With our tea this morning, we had a Carrot Cake, which Caroline had bought - a very nice cake.

Caroline brought me an early birthday present, a patchwork book, that uses precut fabrics, book marks showing the buildings of New York and some cat themed sticky notes.

Amanda was making the borders on her Jacob's Ladder quilt, there is a photo last week's blog. 

Chris was continuing to make hexagons.

I was making a Mini Travel Bag by Brenda Walker, a kit I had bought last year at the quilt show at Duxford.

For lunch we had Chicken and Vegetable soup with Ciabatta and Apple and Blackberry crumble with custard.

After lunch Chris had a 'show and tell', the quilt pattern is 'Going for a Spin' by Sue Harlan.  It was made using a split stripe fabric.  The split stripe fabric (a wide stripe that has a row of flowers, where the colour changes) has been fussy cut in each of these patterns to create a special effect. This fabric is no longer available.

Until next time.
