Miscellaneous Monday

Here is a glimpse of the lap size Schnibble called, "Short Story" I spent the weekend getting the borders on and quilted. Woo Hoo! I have accomplished something for me! Now it needs some binding and that is my favorite part!

Marcie of Patchalot Patterns asked me to do some quick quilting for this quilt that must get to market this month. You can learn more at Marcie's blog. It's a new pattern!! I love Marcie's designs!

Tilt your head please. I received some fun mail today! My copy is personally autographed so you can't have mine. Can you see that 2nd copy? Hmmm...wonder who will win that one. If you are confused go to yesterday's post.


I've now read Kimberly's latest book cover to cover and do believe it to be on the bestseller's list fast!

I have a couple of jelly rolls, so trying to decide what to make with them, but have some ideas. This year I want to do more of my own designs, since i end up changing everything, anyways, lol.

Congrats on your Short Story finish. I can see how you would have a hard time getting your own quilts done--you do such a good job that people keep you busy with their quilts.
Marcie's quilt is beautiful--love that pattern and the colors!
Here's wishing for that second copy of the book!! : )

I like your new schnibbles. Love the fabrics. Not necessaritly in my comfort zone but they look fun and cheery for what could be a long winter. Enjoy. You definately deserve one for yourself.

I think I have to make that "Short Story" Schnibbles. I've only made one and that's the one you quilted for me in exchange for Persephone. I just love this little hourglass quilt.

Wanna do another one? *wink*
