December has arrived

not sure how it got here sew fast but the calendar was turned to the start of a new month.
                            Welcome December the month that is filled with sew much.
To start of my post I will share the post card I received in the mail from Alice in Nova Scotia .
Alice's post card ..... in the mail today
 We are in the  Christmas post card swap that Sheila organize. I have also swapped with a gal in Australia.
the post card I sent to Alice
I have been working on a sample quilt for the learn to quilt class that I will teach in February here in town at the college .It covers all kinds of piecing  techniques.

I was using up some sock yarn and made up this little pair of socks

then I made up an apron for a friend

and now I will be off to build a stocking for another friend.
Today I will be linking up with  The Needle and Thread Network
Have a great week and enjoy December and all it's business

  1. I love that sampler quilt. I pieced a Debbie Mumm's christmas sampler a few years ago, now to quilt it. I would be curious as to how you attempt quilting. I will have to check back. Neat postcards. Exchanges are always fun! It is a good way to see what is happening in the world of quilty crativity!
