November is well under way already. For most, it’s a month for turkeys and football. In some cases, these are one and the same, but I promise I won’t comment on the recent fiasco at a certain university. For me, November is a time to go into creative overdrive as I try to write a novel, get ready for the holidays, and finish all those little projects that clutter my craft room.
It’s day thirteen of National Novel Writing Month and I’m pleased to report that I’ve hit the half-way mark today, at least as far as word counts go. The novel itself, which still remains untitled, feels as if it has hardly started. Dr. Maggie Bailey seems to be developing a life of her own, in spite of my best efforts to stick to a basic plot line. There’s so much more of the story to tell at this point that I may be writing well into December just to finish the first draft.
As a reward for hitting my word counts, I’ve been allowing myself time for quilting. Instead of putting together a new piece to post in the shop, I’ve decided to finally finish the bed quilt that I started for myself earlier in the year. I’ve just finished piecing the top and am so glad to have it nearly done. I’m absolutely in love with the colors and the overall combination reminds me of winter skies. I should have it completely finished and on the bed by Thanksgiving. Below is a quick snap of the quilt top as it is now. I’ll post another picture when it’s completely finished.
Happy Sunday all. Hope you have a creative and inspired week.
