Since I have not sewn much for the last two years... my tub of kits is still full; the project containers are still full of projects; the stash is mainly still unused, well maybe a slight dent was put in it; and the decorative containers, the ones you buy at Michaels and Hobby Lobby - well they are still full of the Civil War block of the months to be completed and various jelly rolls, charm packs and layer cakes. I do believe there might even be a fat quarter pack left in there. I have had four garage sales since we downsized - and participated in a side walk sale at the local fabric shop and I still feel as if I am busting at the seams.
When I found the Schnibble sew along last month, I thought what a wonderful use for all those layer cakes and charm packs. Thanks very much to Polly over at Aunt Polly's Porch who convinced me it really would be fun... I just needed to be nudged a tiny little bit and no arm was broken. Which BTW, I did also spend part of last year with a real broken arm. Be sure to check out all the patterns available from Carrie Nelson. For certain you will probably find quite a few you like. I did.
Don't forget to visit Sindy and Sherri to check out all the gorgeous Schnibbles on parade for this month. "Free choice" patterns were a hit this month.

I got so excited with this first Schnibble, I bought nine more patterns only to find out that I already had two of the patterns in my Schnibbles Times Two book. What's a girl to do!!! Give them away of course. The patterns for "Spin City" and "Imagine" are going to be giveaways for two people who leave a comment - tell me what your favorite quilt color combinations are and leave a way for me to get in touch with you.
I also made some mug rugs this month for the wonderfully kind caregivers at the Cancer Center of NC who give so much to so many.
and some Valentine mug rugs for family and the ladies in my neighborhood.
Hope all you wonderful people have a delightful March. I am patiently (not) waiting for all the new growth on the plants, bushes and trees this year and all the bulb plants to break ground - out second Spring in the cottage home. Sure hope March Schnibble will be a pattern I have and looking forward to creating another Schnibble with you. Judy C in NC
