It's November

October has been such a busy month - work, holidays, illness, family. But not as much sewing as I would have liked.

Michael and I enjoyed a long weekend in the Lake District - a first and last holiday with just the two of us. The weather was dubious, but when you could see the landscape in between torrential rain showers it was stunning. This is one of my favourite spots in the Lakes - Elterwater in Great Langdale.

Last weekend was my little brother's engagement party. This time next year Michaela will officially be part of the family! Yep - I have a Michael and my brother has a Michaela! We're just trying to confuse Mum.

In between this I have done some sewing: I finished a baby quilt - Baby Paws.

I've been working on the Medallion quilt - this is finished and just as soon as I have the time I'll do a full ta-dah post for it.

I've done some City Sampler blocks, but I am a bit behind on these little blocks - the fabrics are cut, but I haven't had the time to stitch them up.

I've been working on a batik wall-hanging for my Mum

And I made a bag.

I'm linking up with Lynne at Lily's Quilts and looking forward to a quieter November.

Sounds like you have had a nice time in October and the sewing is lovely. I am looking forward to seeing all of your medallion quilt, I love mostly blue quilts.

Some great finishes - love the Baby Paws, super colours and I am not a green person! The bag is super too and am loving the batik wall hanging. Tipping down here - great sewing weather! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
