What a glorious weekend we had here in my little neck of the woods. Perfect weather in all ways. A little work, a little play, some family time, some sewing, and some good food. I got the binding on my T is for Thelma Schnibble and you can see it all pretty on my kitchen table. Just so you know, those roses are fresh picked from my garden! The kids came for a barbeque on Sunday night and my table is so festive. Their last name begins with T, so I am expecting they will possibly want to take it home with them!
You may notice the table is only set for three. My husband works in a town 200 miles away, so he usually leaves on Sunday afternoon and isn't with me for Sunday dinner. Or Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday dinner. I miss him, but I know this won't last forever. And at least he has a job!
Speaking of Schnibbles, I got started on the Doc Schnibble for May over the weekend. At first I was all in a dither, super confused about the cutting instructions, sewing, and lay out. I have some real spatial issues, it seems. I figured I would be challenged by this project, since in the past I have really had a struggle with this sort of thing. My Tessellations quilt comes to mind.
The Card Trick block is similar in that you have to pay attention to the adjoining blocks and get your colors arranged just so in order to make the pattern. This Tessellations quilt nearly drove me Ca-Razy.
No problem though. I guess Tessellations was my trial by fire. I didn't have the same level of frustration with my Doc blocks. After a bit of a dither, I sorted it all out. What fun these blocks are!
These are possibly the cutest blocks EVER. I cannot wait to finish this Schnibble and get it on my table! The fabric is a Sandy Gervais group called Zippity Do Dah. It is several years old I think, but you can still get it if you search online.
I don't have my BOM Rehab block done yet, but it is still Monday. I may get it done yet!
