Make a Garment a Month - November 23 - First lot of completed garments...

Hi everyone,

What an amazing group - some of you have already finished your November garment - and some of you have made more than one garment for posting in this challenge. And some of you have made other garments outside this blog - which is why I also encourage you to visit each other's blogs and see what it going on - there are so many ideas and talented sewers in the blogosphere.

Well, I won't blah, blah too much today - I'll post the pictures, along with a link to the challengee's blog, and a link to the post for the challenge garment.

I'll let the pictures do the talking, and your fingers to do the walking - to check out each other's posts...

In the meantime, those of you who are still sewing your garments - don't be put off by the completers.  We all go at our own pace.
