First round to the Round Robin is done....now don't think I am fast, I already had the house blocks, I just had to make the trees. The houses are from a BOM that I never finished and knew I wouldn't finish...so...here is to my last years UFO....feels soooooo good. I know, I need to iron it...will get to it tomorrow.


I got the nicest surprise in the mail Monday...you see these squares....they are Thimbleberries....oh my...did my heart skip a beat....almost had to have the paddles used on my heart.... These are from Karen from SEW MANY WAYS she said these are for my Thimbleberies sew days....how awesome is this???? If you are not familiar with her blog, I suggest you go over there now. She can make anything from the hardware department...I chuckle every time I go over there...totally amazed how clever she is and she never ceases to amaze me on her ability to create something from cheap things at the hardware dept, light boxes, jewelry...you name it...



This is all Mary's fault from Quilt Hollow....I curse her....she is always talking about schnibbles and how addicted she is to them....hers turn out so amazing....every day...I am telling you, she should sell drugs, she just makes it sooooo irrestible. Actually, she is one amazing person...go check out her blog, awesome schnibbles and quilting. Got the schnibble pattern from Quilt Taffy...they give fast service.

  2. Barb you have just been getting some fabulous things. You know I have a passion for houses and your row of houses is just adorable. God I wish I had more time. I too like the Schnibbles but I do not want to get hooked.

  4. I love those little cottage blocks! So very cute. I'm so tempted, but my friend Helen makes them by the dozen as she loves that fiddley stuff.
    I too love Karen at Sew Many Ways, but just cannot log into her file as my computer freezes, so I must shut it down everytime I try. I don't know why, but I do agree, she is so unbelievably creative and funny too!

  24. Your houses are too cute! Can't wait to add to them. For several months I have been seeing the finished Schnibbles quilts on the net and I have been tempted to join in. There just doesn't seem to be enough time for all the things I want to do.
