November finishes.


Overall November wasn't a good month for sewing but I did complete my goals for the month. I wanted to complete the binding on the Mr Hare quilt....done. This quilt is now being enjoyed by its new owner Lucy.

I wanted to put the binding on my Christmas table runner and this is also completed. This is a long runner and is destined to go on our long coffee table but the jigsaw board is on it at present. I love the appliqued deer.

This is such a cheerful table runner. Its going to make the room very festive.

The mug rugs being made for the No rings blog hop were completed. This first one has been gifted to my colleague and she is really pleased with it. She is counting the days to our Christmas break when she can get her machine out and get sewing.

The second mug rug is also a gift and will be off to its new owner in the next couple of days. I used the deer template from the table runner for this one.

The third mug rug still needs its binding but this was an addition to my planned makes for the hop. In hunting for suitable bindings for the other two I found the tea cup panel and decided to make a new one for myself. This will be a New Year addition to my desk at work.

That leaves my main goal for the month which was to embroider the elephant block of the Noah's Ark embroidery. I wanted these embroideries to be bigger so I enlarged it to 160%. I'm very happy with how this turned out. I'm trying to use up all those left over strands of threads from other projects and for this I didn't need to start of any new skeins of floss. Later today I will decide which embroidery to do next and trace it out. Since I have holiday over Christmas I may do the ark which is the biggest piece.

I'm linking this post with Patty from Elm Street Quilts for the final link up of her 
November OMG It feels great to have completed all my goals for the month. I think it's the first time this year!

Take care.



  1. Mr. Hare is so cute. And I love all your mug rugs. It’s been a while since I’ve made one. Yours turned out so cute.

  2. Lots of lovely finishes here. I'm interested in your Noah's Ark project, how many blocks are there? I often enlarge stitchery patterns too, because I like to stitch with perle 5 thread, not stranded cottons.

  3. Congratulations on such a productive month, Lyndsey!!

  4. Very nice. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.
