Schnibbles on My Mind

I had a great relaxing, low-key weekend!

After the last couple of weeks it was a welcome change.

Of course my sewing room did see some action yesterday...


I have been working on my Schnibbles project...

I am rushing to have it done this week because it is the November

pattern pick for A Year of Schnibbles!


I'm not going to elaborate on what a cute pattern this is...

because I know you love all the Schnibbles anyway!

Still, it needs to get finished... before the first when the

Cindy Lou Who Schnibbles Parade begins!



Here is what is going to be a shop sample. I am feeling a bit behind and I feel so bad that this one here is not completed yet either!

I better get a move on because as you can see, this is a time sensitive project!!!

I'm doing it in the Benartex Christmas line from Nancy H.


Now I need to share a little something with you...

I keep running across these dolls on various blogs

and I keep thinking

I am going to order the pattern from the person who sells them.

I think they are so cute and the pattern is for 3 girls and there is another pattern for 2 boys.

I always talk myself out of purchasing the pattern... I'm really not much of a "doll" person

but I really like these stuffed dolls

and of course I can't remember now where it was I saw them,

so I am showing this picture of my most recent sighting in hopes that someone can tell me the doll designers link.

Any helpful hints out there or should I get AMW in on the case?


I also have been swept up in the moment and joined Nicole at Sister's Choice Quilts and Allyson of Fat Cat Quilts in a Red and White Snowball Challenge.

I'll be checking back in with you to see how your Schnibble progress is and to maybe give you a sneak peak of mine!

Can't wait to find out November Schnibbles quilt. I had fun making my Cindy Lou Who quilt. I finished my October Schnibbles quilt yesterday and just posted a photo on my blog, carolscraftblog.blogspot.com. I'm also going to do the Snowball quilt with Allyson at Fat Cat Quilts. I love it and just got the book in the mail today.
