A new month means linking up to Lynne at Lily's Quilts for her Fresh Sewing Day
It can't really be possible that it is December 1, 2011. The year has flown by!
I did manage to finish a few projects, both large and small. My biggest accomplishment was finishing the Baby Carrot quilt. I know you are probably sick of hearing about it, but it did take me a long time to finish with the hand quilting and also my very first FMQ finish.
My easiest finish of the month was a quick Hello Kitty scarf for my sweet granddaughter, Davis.
When I visited her earlier this month and was wearing a scarf, the first thing she said to me was, "Bubbi, I don't have a scarf!". Off to the fabric store I went the next day to buy some cute fabrics to whip up a little scarf for her. I also made my mom a new zipper pouch for her walker. I didn't know until I asked that my mom's favorite color is purple.
So my mosaic would not look so pitiful, I included the applesauce we made after a day of apple picking, the fabric I cut for my turn as Queen Bee in the New Bee on the Block quilt bee and the pieced top I have begun for my son's fire house quilt.
There's a bee block in there, too, for Miss November's Mondrian inspired blocks.
Now December 1 also means the pressure is on for my youngest son, Kyle, to make his annual music video for his gift to the family. This one from 2008 is a favorite. Although a certain son's former wife is no longer a family member, this video is still great fun to watch. It's also fun because one of Kyle's best friend is Brandon, the drummer in the very popular band Atreyu. Brandon sings back-up on the video and helped Kyle with some of the lyrics and mixing the song.
