A few November finishes...

I had some tea toweling by the yard and 
thought it was time to cut them into tea towel lengths, 
hem them and 
add some embroidery and crochet edgings...
The snowmen a Bird Brain Designs Pattern #699
Snowmen by the Dozen.
I'm not sure where I got the kitten design...
I've had it for years.

and another one...
This Snowgal is 1 of 2 Bird Brain Designs found in the
Winter issue of Quilts and More magazine.
I used an Aunt Martha tea towel.
Wish I could find my magazine...I was hoping to stitch a few more.
I have been searching my house for 3 days...
I don't know where else to look.  
I'll keep looking for another few days...
if I can't find it I'll have to buy another copy.

Some of the toweling didn't have plain areas to add embroidery,
but they do have a crochet edging.

I completed my ALYOF November goal...
The ZEN pattern was in the February 2009 issue of 
American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  
 It is a quick and easy quilt to make.

My November goal for ALYoF

I am making a second Zen quilt...I've made progress this month,
from this...
to this.  
 It has been a WIP for awhile.
I finished the first Zen quilt in May 2015.  
The pattern is from the February 2009
American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  
My November goal is to have it quilted and bound for the
ALYoF Finishing Party.
