9 Patch Swap Sent (Oh, and did you know that it is November?)

I love swaps! So much fun! This is my pile of 72 9 patches that I sent off. Six different colour/fabric combos, 12 of each combo. Our Swap Mama will send me 72 squares back, but they will all be different! How cool is that. Then I will assemble my quilt top and quilt my quilt. This is the last swap for this year for me. I got a little swapped out and decided to take a break. I love the challenge of swaps (they really encourage me to try things I have never done before!) they have really increased my confidence and my abilities. I have learnt lots of new things this year and tried lots of new things too. Oh, by the way, it's November! This year has just flown by and I guess I am already thinking about the new year and the goals I will set for myself. I am looking forward to Christmas. Can't wait to set up my decorations and lights and make everything twinkley! Mrs 25 has already got her tree up. As soon as it hits November her tree goes up! I had a lovely surprise when I went to church on Sunday. Our new ward (congregation) often has organ and piano duets for prelude music and last Sunday they were playing Christmas carols! Such a lovely surprise!!! Usually Christmas carols are reserved exclusively for December and you don't really have enough time to enjoy them, so it was lovely to listen to them! I feel all warm and fuzzy now with all this Christmas talk! I'm off to sew now.

When I first looked I thought you had done 729 blocks I was impressed. Still impressed at 72 nine patches. How exciting waiting for them to come back.

Hi Kris, I just popped over from Joolz'. Love your nine patches! I haven't quilted in so long, and I think it's calling me!

thanks for letting me know it is November! I would have missed it otherwise I am sure....the year is going so quickly make sure you let me know when it's December....or I might miss my birthday and Christmas.....great looking blocks.....I have to finish my SSCS soon and get it in the post....November 25 seemed like such a long way in the future when I signed up...LOL!

I'm with you...there's never enough time for Christmas music. One of my favorite radio station has started playing carols during the weekend!
