First one finished

_C023524 (2)

I have now finished the first of the projects that were on my list for the week.  This is the November offering for the British Quilt List calendar challenge.  I didn’t finish the October challenge in time to get the instructions, so I had to guess about the technique.  Because I was in a hurry, I opted to simply use Wonder-Under to fuse the circles and then to use machine embroidery stitches around the edges.  

 

Now onto the ornament of the day……

I won this ornament in an exchange that our guild had a lot of years ago.  It was made by an older woman named Kathryn Hancock and it is very special to me.  A few years before she passed away, she bought a UFO of mine at a garage sale.  When I asked her WHY in the world she wanted it, she explained that this way she would have something that I made!!

 

That comment has always stuck with me and seeing this ornament each year gives me a warm and wonderful feeling.  

…..Thank you Kathryn and I miss you!!!!…….

The ornaments with memories attached are the best ones; I almost think they're the only ones to have.

That is an intriguing design for November.

A very touching memory attached to this ornament.
