Today is a special day indeed!
The title is a bit misleading...
it's not the birthday of Another Year of Schnibbles...
and it's not the birthday of Schnibbles patterns either.
Today is the birthday of Carrie Nelson...
you might also know her as
"the one who is not Rosie".
It's always nice to share the birthday with great people...
Laura Simpson of Minick and Simpson is celebrating today...
and it's also the birthday (of sorts) of Yosemite, that became a
National Park, and unfortunately on this, it's 123rd birthday
it is being shut down today, along with other national parks
here in the U.S.
due to some issues in congress.
So let's celebrate since Yosemite can't!
Did I mention it's my birthday too?
Thankfully I am less than half the age of this beautiful
national park that I happen to live minutes from!
Sherri and I picked the new pattern for AYOS.
This time it's Clover!
Isn't this the sweetest little Schnibble?
I think it has a great vintage vibe!
I will be making mine along with you this month!
Here is another version of this adorable quilt!
