do Good Stitches November Block

Hi!  Just checking in and sharing my November do.Good.Stitches block.  Rachel hosted this month and sent us each an embroidered animal and asked us to use a specific color ... mine was butter yellow.  Hope I got the shade right!  :-)

This block took me a LOT longer to make than I thought it would.  (So did deciding on a design. Which I finally decided and just went on ahead and improv-ed it.)  I was then too scared to trim it after all that, so I will let her do that.  Hope she doesn't mind.  :-)  Here's the block ...
Here's a closer view of the block.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I hope it will look great with all the others she is putting together!  :-)

Edited to Add:  I designed this block as I went along.  I had intended to do all hexies, but wanted to use bigger hexies to do that.  The embroidery piece limited the size, so I ended up added borders instead of doing hexies for the whole block.  :-)

I am still working on getting the Sew Lux Blog ready for the "Handmade Holiday" series that will kick off this weekend ... so be on the lookout for some quick and fun projects!

See you soon!


  1. Awww...I love the little kitty and the cheerful yellow.

  2. Did you follow a pattern or come up with it on your own?
