Yup! More schnibbles and another parade. The last one till Fall. As much as I enjoy them I have to say I am kind of happy for the break because I have a several projects that I have committed to that really need to get made this summer.
It has been a busy month...catching up on things here at home, a mini retreat with my quilting buddies, a trip to Ontario for family business, a couple rounds of company, painting the front and back steps ans decks outside, yard work and making a baby quilt.(my schnibbles for this month)
The painting job turned out well. The side entry really needed sprucing up. With prospective buyers visiting the house first impressions are important.
A new mat and...
A cheery pot of pansies atop an antique stool, and
Revamped wreath for the door...
A friendly rooster to "how doodle you do" , along with fresh coat of paint was just what this entry needed.
I have one other thing I want to do but I need to pick up something in town next trip. I will share pics when i get it done.
Sue and I both made our Schnibbles into baby quilts this month. It is always good to have a baby quilt on hand. The pattern this month is called X rated, and I lucked out and didnt have to order the pattern because I have all of Carries books and this pattern is one of them.
Sue made her quilt scrappy and I just love it! The colours are so pretty. Well done Sue!
As you can probably see, Sue has hers quilted and bound!
I on the other hand just have a "flimsy" to show this month. Once I get moved to the cottage I hope to get it and several other pieces quilted and bound....we'll see...
My baby quilt is made with Woodland by Natalie Lymer of Cinder erry Stitches
I only had one charm pack so I had to change things up a bit and do solid borders, but I think it came together okay for what i had on hand.
Hopefully next post will be from the cottage. I have some fun things planned for the month of June; hopefully they will materialize!
I leave you with a photo from my May calendar page...it made me smile every time I looked at it.
