I finished 100 tote bags for the Care Bags For Kids Foundation. The 13"x14" ditty bags are filled with with hygiene supplies for children in crisis. This year's bags used up some home dec fabric, some denim and corduroy remnants, and other miscellaneous fabric from my Deep Stash.
For the 11 years I was at ZBPL I made Christmas ornaments for the staff, trustees, and volunteers. I don't have to do that any longer, but I still have the habit. Instead of 60 ornaments for library colleagues, I am making 25 ornaments for my friends in the United Methodist Women. I have eight more to make and I need to attach hanging loops (embroidery floss). The luncheon is December 11 so I will be finished in plenty of time. The pattern is by Katrina Rosser. You can find it here.
I pieced the backing for this quilt and hope to finish it this week. (Only one daytime meeting this week and only one evening obligation (the ecumenical Thanksgiving service Wednesday) = quilting time!)
Am I the only quiltmaker who is as yet undecided about participating in the Quiltville mystery that begins on Friday?
