We're Almost Halfway Through November!

I don't know where the time is going but I just do not have enough of it these days! There has been some sewing going on here but not as much as I would like. This is my finish from last Tuesday though.

 It's another Lorax Baby quilt for my Etsy shop. This time in the "natural" colourway.
 I "free styled" it on the piecing again by just working with what I had on hand and coming up with this pattern.
 All piecing and quilting is sewn with Aurifil thread. I love that little Lorax! He's too cute!
 I pieced the back out of scraps too. The binding is machine sewn to both the front and the back of the quilt.
 I had a happy mail day last week when these lovely "Scrumptious" pre-cuts arrived. I ordered them from Craftsy when I signed up for Camille Roskelley's new class "Playful Piecing Techniques". When you sign up for classes you can usually order fabric for the class at a discount. :) I have also ordered a kit for one of the quilts in the class so I am eagerly checking the mail everyday waiting for that to come in. I also signed up for Joanna Figueroa's Class on Craftsy as well. Both of these classes have fun quilts in them so I hope I can get some sewn up soon! I used coupon codes for both of these. For Playful Piecing I found one in this post on Camille Roskelley's blog. I got the discount for Joanna's class when Craftsy had a sale on quilting classes so keep an eye out for those to save some money.
 Today is Remembrance Day in Canada. We are a military family so it is a very important day for us. Here are my kids all dressed up to go to the ceremony and looking angelic. (They are not always like this. Ha Ha! But on the whole they are very good kids.)
They were asked to lay a wreath on behalf of our church so here they are all ready before the ceremony even started. My husband and I were very proud of them. They did a great job.
