Not for the cat in the house!

I started this quilt early this year... and now it's finished right in time to put it under the tree in a few weeks time.
It's for my DD, she's a huge fan of the Cat in the Hat so I think she'll be very pleased with this lap quilt.
 It's extremely windy (and cold) today, so it was hard to get a decent photo of it outside. The only positive was the light!
 Here's one of it inside where it lay where it was put!

Today I'm linking this to Anthea and Christmas Through The Year

FNSI - November and my MUM's quilt

On Friday night I worked a bit on some hexies and I did some secret sewing for the swap in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap held by Chookyblue.

You could pop over to Wendy's to see what all the others in the FNSI where up to!

Since I don't want to spoil the suprise for my partner in the swap I'm going to show the quilt I made for my Mum earlier this year. As you can see in the photos it was quite some time ago, right now there isn't any leaves left on the trees.
 The wind caught the corner on this one. And here's the other side.
I'm so happy that she loves it. She's showing it to everyone that comes into the house!

For Ho-Ho-Whom will it be?

My first finish for November (that I can show you that is) is a cabled sweater for a small boy. I hope it fits him when the time comes because for now it goes in the Birthday stash. I haven't decided if it's going to be a Christmas gift or a birthday present early next year.
I'm linking this to the Birthday-Love Stash over at Wendy's. Excuse the poor indoor at night taken photo.
Wendy is also hosting the Friday Night Sew-In that takes place tomorrow. Pop over to see who else is taking part and you could join in too!
I'm very eager to be doing some sewing since I've been in bed all week long with a terrible cold and I always get very restless after a couple of days!
Perhaps I'll be seeing you!

FNwF - November

Where does time flies?
November already and this friday I joined Cheryll with all the other lovely ladies in the Friday Night with Friends and actually finished the quilting on my DDs quilt.
Yes, the one she asks about all the time. Sooon it will  be finished to deliver!
After that we went out for tapas at the local inn. Delicious as always!

Tonight I was invited to see a hockeygame at the new dome in town. I haven't been to a game for ages but tonight was quite fun when Växjö Lakers defeated Örebro with 7-0. Yay, way to go!
