I'm not sure where the month of August went because up until this morning all I had done on my schnibble was make my flying geese and the 4 patches ... then it sat on the kitchen table waiting to be completed...so this morning i squared up the flying geese and the four patches, assembled the center, then cut and made the border...I love how it turned out and I'm glad i used the border the pattern called for rather than a solid border. I selected the pattern Plan C and used Zippity Doo Dah for my schnibble. Hope you have a great week!!!

So after messing with my machine for about an hour i gave up and went back to it later ... messed with it some more and she finally worked perfectly ... i keep telling my husband this is why i need a nice bernina or pfaff or any one of those nice big fancy machines ... i just haven't convinced him that they are worth the $$$$ ... but i'm still working on him!

When we moved in our house 18 years ago, there was one small shrub up against our house and my husband tied a rope to it, tied the rope to the back of his truck and removed the shrub ... so for years i kept saying i wanted a tree and i wanted shrubs ... and after enough nagging, we planted 3 shrubs, a pine tree and my flowering tree ... well i think my flowering tree is going to die...from the weight of the branches, the left side of the tree is touching the ground and there is a crack down the middle of the trunk ... hubby said he stuck his hand in the truck because there is a hole in it now :O)
