So, remember the Mon Ami Schnibble I was working on? – I finished the top (well sans borders) it has yet to be quilted, but was what I wanted to do during January because of the Le Petite or Year of Schnibbles Project Hosted by both Sinta on her blog Pink Pincushion and Sherri on her blog A Quilting Life
So on the 1st of the Month, everyone who participated project is paraded on each of their blogs and this month I am proud to be one of the parade!
Here is the post on Sinta’s Blog for the Mon Ami Schnibble Parade 1st Feb 2o11 (I’m in this one – about half way down the post yay!)
Here is the post on Sherri’s Blog – as you can see one pattern can have a life of its own.
As you know I am not the speediest of sewers/quilters, but I did get a start on Miss Perkins, but she is not quite ready for a parade just yet. I tried to attach her legs without a doll needle and was not happy with the results so will be getting that today. Miss Perkins also doesn’t have a mane, tail or eyes just yet. But with the Rosalie Quinlan Fabric Collection by Lecien Fabrics Grandmother’s Flower Garden, she is quite the Melly and Me child isn’t she?
-Note to self – Iron On Interfacing does not work well as a photo background he he he 😀
I also got some stash additions yesterday, want to see?
Whoop Whoop! This arrived yesterday from my mum’s latest Fat Quarter Shop purchase ( I snuck some stuff in there!) and will be use to make the wonderful Stella Handbag pattern by Patty Young!
and speaking of Patty Young and Michael Miller Fabrics, I also added these 8 fat quarters to the stash! – They are not ear marked for anything just yet, but I can’t to have a ‘date’ with them.
And last but definitely not least, my local discount craft store Spotlight has a sale on that started yesterday so I grabbed two of these 25 X 2.5 inch strip rolls which equal one ‘jelly’ roll and are also not yet assigned to a project.
