It's been one of those weeks where I've felt like I haven't stopped but for some reason I've accomplished very little! lol With Christmas just around the corner I really need to do better! I think I need to start making lists!

Carrie P. of has prepared a wonderful coloring on fabric tutorial using the "Sweet Nostalgia" October block, which you can find here While you're checking it out, have a look at all of her wonderful applique quilts. Thank you Carrie. She has decided to make her blocks a little smaller and to color them using Crayola crayons. Here is a photo of her September block

Doesn't it look wonderful. I think I might try that technique on my next stitchery project.

Bye for now. I'm off to start making my "must get done before Christmas" list.

Edited November 21/09 - Carrie P. just posted this photo of the October block on her blog. Doesn't it look fabulous? Thank you Carrie for sharing it with us.

"Sweet Nostalgia" - November Block

It's that time again. I find it incredible how fast time goes by. There are only 40 days left till Christmas, and I still have so much left to finish! Oh well, maybe they will be ready for next Christmas. lol
For those of you that sent your prayers and good wishes for my Mother, thank you. She is home from the hospital now and working on getting some of her strength back. We are just taking it a day at a time.

Before I add the links to the new block I want to show you the October block done by Karine of Didn't she do a fabulous job? Thank you for sharing it with us Karine. Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, Jennifer of has very kindly set up a Flickr group for the "Sweet Nostalgia" B.O.M. So, if any of you have completed any of your blocks and would like to share them with the rest of us, please join the group and upload your photos. The link to the Flickr group is here I really would love to see them.

And now, what you've been waiting for, here is the new block for November, titled - "Making Friends". The link to download or print the file is here.
For those of you having trouble with Scibd, I've made it available on 4Shared here.

Happy Stitching! Chat with you later.
