i just can't let november completely pass by without posting something. i'll be honest, this month really slipped through my fingers. i've felt one step behind in nearly everything. and when i look back on the month it almost seems like i accomplished nothing. and yet, when i look at some of my pictures from the month, i know i did at least a little something.
like attend a modern quilt guild meeting and admire the work of my amazing quilting cohorts. aren't these projects so inspiring?
and experience the first snow of the year, which surprised us seattleites who aren't used to so much white stuff so early in the season (or at all, for that matter). never mind that the snowpocalypse came just when our furnace fan decided to go kaput. sure, we had two and half days of no heat while it was about 12 degrees out, but it was an adventure. right?
i got to do some thanksgiving baking and made a maple pumpkin pie (yum!) and some seriously delicious buttermilk rolls (via rice and wheat via michael ruhlman).
and i did a little sewing myself, though not at all enough. i finished some bee blocks (and mailed them out in time... yay me!) and managed to piece the top for the tree quilt for do. good stitches. seriously, how great is this quilt top? if it wouldn't be so wrong to keep it for myself, i would, i love it that much. i am constantly impressed with the creativity and diversity that comes from this little group of sewists.
here's to hoping the next month brings some more inspiration and magic.
but i have a feeling that good things are in store for me in december.
a very good feeling.
