November and December's Blocks

This month's blocks come with an explanation and an apology. In looking back over my blog this year, it has been a bit sparse and infrequent. We have spent most of the year trying to sell our house. Things are now looking promising(keep your fingers crossed for us)! It's hard work to keep your house "show worthy" at all times. To cope with it all, I find myself reading instead of sewing. Like I said things are looking promising and we are hoping to move soon. I thought I would give you both November and December's blocks so that I don't have to worry about getting them to you in the process. I'm sorry not to have examples to show again, but I have checked and rechecked the instructions and feel that they are accurate.

I will get setting instructions written soon and post them so that you can finish your quilt!

Christmas Mantle Scarf

Sorry it been such a long time since I posted. I've been busy making gifts and costumes(more about that later). I recently had a lady inquire about where I got my Christmas mantle scarf pattern. Since it is my design and I usually like to offer a free Christmas pattern on my blog, I decided to write the instructions and offer them to my readers. First a picture of the actual scarf.
 Then my mantle with the scarf and decorations.
 Click here for the directions. I suggest you read the last page first. If you have any problems, please contact me. I hope you can use this pattern and enjoy it. I would love to see the results.
