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.
