But I do have something to show for my absence. I was home exactly 5 weeks; the first few days were a write off due to jet lag. Then we packed and moved to the beach; the next day we had old friends come to visit for a few days, but after that I got down to the business at hand.
This is what I accomplished...
All in all, there are 10 quilted projects, most of them gifts. There is a twin sized quilt for my great grand daughters "big girl bed", a baby quilt, 4 doll quilts, 3 table toppers, and a lap quilt for a birthday gift. I also managed to finish crocheting edges on a couple dinner napkins, and cut out some printed linen and make four tea towels.
For the most part I am pleased. Did you happen to notice one of the toppers, is this months Schnibbles pattern?
Yup! I squeaked in another parade entry. Canasta. This is a new pattern from Rosie's Quilt Company, and I love it.
Now usually I get to show you 2 entries because Sue make her version, and I do mine. My sister Barb has even started "Schnibbling", but this month they just "run out of month" and didn't get time to sew, so I am all alone on this float.
Here is what Sue had to say when I asked her about the Schnibbles Parade,
" Sue, who is looking at the parade route and trying to pick out the best spot. Will I have to gather my quilt, chair, etc and stake out my spot on Sat night? I've never done that before, it might be fun. Maybe I'll see a few other Schnibble want-to-bees doing the same thing. Should I bring some handwork, a few magazines....oh, some treats as well.....my camera, tablet, an extension cord and charger, my Ott light....I wonder what time the parade will start? I sure hope it doesn't rain..........."
She is sorry not to have an entry ready for parade but promises to be there to watch the excitement.
Here is another look at my Canasta Schnibbles.
