PHD Update and November Goals

by | Nov 1, 2021 | 5 comments

Wow, November 1st already!! It’s true – time flies when you are having fun! October found me working as much as I could and felt up to. Still having a bit of energy lag, but getting better. Sometimes it was just easier to take a break than stitch! But, I got a little bit done!!

  • Block 9 and start Block 10(?) of Sunshine Cove – √ Block 9 completed!
  • Quilt two calendar quilts and bind them and two others – √ partially completed – two down and two to go!
  • September Crafter’s Edge Project – √ Done!
  • October Crafter’s Edge Project – √ Done!
  • Ghastly Ghouls Blog Hop project – √ Done!
  • Blog post for Fat Quarter Shop secret sewing, tentatively scheduled for 10/21, but they are having trouble getting in fabric they had planned to use for this blog hop, so it could change – √ Done!
  • If time allows start on guild comfort quilt – ✗ not done!!
A few more blocks marked off!!
A few finishes that were started in 2021

November NEEDS to be a busy month – we’ll see how the energy and inspiration go! LOL

    OMgosh, Your sunshine block is just gorgeous!! You have gotten so much accomplished and finished, even with your energy level down. I am so glad to hear that your energy level is improving and hopefully, you will be back to normal energy level soon!! Cyber Hugs

    I’m glad you’re feeling better and hope you continue to gain strength. Can’t wait tp see your Christmas quilt for Madelyn, and I’ll be interested to see what a “No Ring Mug Rug” is.
    Thanks for linking to To Do Tuesday!
