November's End

So much has happened since my last post.  I'll do my best to sum up the fun parts.

The second annual Orlando MQG retreat took place the first weekend and that was such a blast. It was nice to get away for a few days and just hang out with some wonderful people. I didn't take many photos while I was there but did put a dent in my budget allotted for shopping.

Here are some highlights:
Our view for breakfast each day in Cocoa, FL

Couldn't resist more Cotton+Steel.
Periodic Table Symbols: I'll be making something
nerdy and fun.

Fantasy Forrest:
No plans yet but am so in love!

My continued addiction to Whites with Black prints.
(Love those mustaches the most!)


Crazy great prices so I had to get both!

Some yellows and orange since I have so little in my stash.

Something intriguing in this retro design.

I've had my eye on this Effervescence print from Michael Miller
 for a while and took the plunge.
Those purple polka dots are fun, too.

Safety pins and a fun black on black print.
(I'm going to make a few projects that needed zippers this
Christmas so I bought one to practice.)

A gift from a fellow guildmate!
(She finished a project and gave me her leftovers!)
My absolute favorite!!!
 Finished some blocks:
Last set of StashBee Hive blocks were sent to their new home.

Worked on a few block from T.Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks.
(Still have a long way to go!)

BOM for OMQG Block Lotto this week!
(They need to get trimmed but I was chain piecing
a bunch to better my odds of winning.)
I've just realized that I had many other good times but didn't take any pictures to share. I'll need to do better next month.

How was your November?

Started on Sunday

Hi there!
I hope you all enjoyed your extra hour courtesy of Daylight's Saving Time.

I made out like a bandit recently with some shopping scores and even managed to get some some sewing done.

Here's a quick look!

Fabric finds:

Wonder Woman and DC Girl Power: I had to get my hands on some.
Rainbows and Unicorns! (This has been on my Pinterest page forever and I found it on sale!)

Sewing Start Ups:

I worked on a top for a local quilt shop using the Cotton and Steel collection of fabric they provided.
A Modern Heart Baby Quilt

I am also working on a little mini gift for this year's OMQG holiday party. I'll post that pic soon.

This weekend, we are going on our second annual guild retreat next weekend where I'll get plenty of time to quilt and enjoy the company of some creative women. I can't wait to share photos with you soon.

How did you spend your extra hour?
