Probably just as well it was out of sight, out of mind as there was almost zero progress on my OMG for November. The plan was to piece a backing for Inverted Star. The only progress on that front is that I've searched the stash and found the fabric for the backing. It's been blessed by the Scientist in Training.
But that is as far as I got on the November goal.
So what did get done last month? The label for the Halloween Mystery Quilt (BOO) is ready to go.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. I hope to get the binding made and get this quilt finished off in the next week or so. Yes I know the label says finished in November and it's already December. That sometimes happens to me where I'm off by a month on my labels. My logic is that years from now, one month isn't really going to matter much.
So what did I work on in November?

The blocks for the Christmas Mystery quilt are all finished and sashed. As soon as I finish this post, I'm heading to the sewing room to finish the borders. The last class to show off our finishes is this morning, so I'm going to see what I can get done between now and then. I'm hoping to get this quilt out to Trudy for quilting after Christmas to keep it off the UFO list.
The other distraction in November was the kick off of Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt. I really, really don't need another project, but I'm playing along anyway. I'm up to 20 plus 4-patches, plus have sewn and trimmed two HSTs from clue 2. What gets done, gets done. I'm just enjoying the process on this one.
So ends the 7th month out of 11 that I've not made my OMG goal. I'm not going to be sad about that, progress was made, just not on what I'd planned. Not sure what I'm going to do for December. Crazy will get crazier this month. I have two big projects with December 31st deadlines. Add in the holiday shopping, wrapping and family time, it's not likely I'll have much time to stitch. I'll pick something, but it's likely to be something really easy. I'd like to end the year on a high note.
