A Schnibble is Done

I'm very happy to report that a Schnibble is done...not the right Schnibble but a Schnibble none the less...LOL! I wanted to do a table topper for Katie and Josh for Christmas and I just couldn't figure out what to do...a friend of mine got the "Caroler" charm pack and decided to use the Miss Rosie pattern "State Fair"...well, I had a lightbulb moment...that was it...Katie and Josh would just love it. So I got was really pretty quick and went together perfectly...even with that piano key border...PERFECT! Thank you Carrie for another wonderful pattern.

I'm busy cleaning and baking, grocery shopping and wrapping birthday gifts...this is a busy place...the kids will be here Tuesday evening, I'm picking mom up Tuesday afternoon and she'll be with us the whole time the kids are here. She's beside herself with excitement. We got everything for Hampton's birthday celebration...he LOVES Thomas the Train and all of his friends, so we're having a Thomas birthday...complete with a cake in the shape of Thomas. I called the other day and talked to Katie, I asked her to check with Hampton and find out what he wanted for his birthday dinner...he could have anything he wanted. She called back a bit later, Hampton had given it much thought and he would like...cheeseburgers, french fries and carrots. So that's what we'll be having on Wednesday...oh and they have to be Grandy's cheeseburgers...LOL!

Wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving...we have so much to be thankful for!

October Schnibble is DONE!

OK...I know it's not October any more...but I did get it done...this one was a doozie...I really had to think and pay attention to get this little one together correctly. I really do like it a lot and it will be great on my kitchen table for Christmas. I used Glace fabric by MODA and 3 Sisters.

I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of the Harvest Home scraps...remember you have until 8:00 tomorrow morning before Mr. Quilt Holder draws the winner.

I'll also have my November Charming Girl goals ready tomorrow...see you in the morning.

I spent some time cleaning up my sewing room today...getting ready for November's projects.

Make sure there's an e-mail address connected to your comment to I can contact you...I'll have Mr. Quilt Holder draw a name from the basket on Friday morning at 8 a.m. That way I can get it in the mail before the weekend. Thanks for helping me make room!
