The Last Weekend Before The Parade

The weekend is approaching and we have things to look forward to!

A class to teach, baby shower to go to, a lunch at the lake with almost all

the kids...(for a pre-birthday celebration). Don't you love it when your birthday falls in the middle of the week... that way you get to start the celebration the weekend before and throughout the week... & into the next weekend. Woohoo!

DS#3 & soon-to-be DIL are coming into town tonight. Jill made a quick little stop at that wonderful quilt shop in Livermore, In Between Stitches and picked up a project for us.
I wish I could have been there with her... but ... I just want to drool all over everything!

She scooped up some Sherry Berry Christmas charm packs/plus???

We saw that cute Advent Calendar (above) on the Sew Mama Sew blog. I think it's going to be so cute in these retro fabrics...

and a fun one to whip up.

I did get my borders on the Cobblestone quilt project and it's ready to get quilted. I got my draperies up also.


what I keep thinking about is all of those Schnibbles

out there that are getting finished! I hope to be showing you a post on Monday of some of the prizes we have to give-away! October 1st is less than a week away!

Then the big Parade of Schnibbles!

Are you ready for it?
Sherri and I sure are!
and are you wondering what the next Schnibbles project will be?
Do you think you can guess?

I was thinking... maybe you should make a Schnibbles blog where all the participants could be members and post their finishes with pictures. That way it'll be organized.

Just a thought lol?!

I used to be in a quilt group with Melissa (one of the ladies that opened In Between Stitches) I live right here in San Jose and haven't been up there in probably 8 yrs. I was thinking about calling up to see if Melissa was still part owner or if she had moved on to new things. Her dad is the amazing craftsman that made those gorgeous roof topped shelving units.

Hi Sinta,
I'm with Mandy (actually I proposed that to Sherri, the last time I tried "ayearofschnibbles.blogspot..." was still free. If you should need some help or advice, I'd happily do my best to assist you...).
Oh, I just wanted to tell that I've posted my Schnibbles

Yay, in time...and now I even have some days to think about the next one...I'm sure I won't guess it right, so I won't even try.

Have a great Sunday,

I'm excited for the parade too! Sounds like you're going to have a wonderful birthday celebration!

Hi Sinta,
Its so nice to meet you! I received my little bag and pincushion and I just wanted to let you know how much I love them. I believe me the pincushion will get used! Love your blog and I shall return!


I am done with Septembers Schnibbles and it is posted on my blog site--so be sure and take a look--it is totally finished and hand quilted--I worked fast--and the fabric line I used is called Winter song--Take care--ready for Octobers pattern??
