Joy Less Schnibbles

Here's my Schnibbles for July, a new one by Carrie, Joy Luck, and I got to say I did not enjoy this one.  I used 3 charm packs, 2 of Holly Jolly and 1 of Merry and Bright that I had in my stash.  Three because the Holly Jolly packs had too many lights to work right.  I also used a Sandy Gervais for the background.  It turned out cute but I think I am all Schnibbled out!  I find them to be so much work, cutting and sewing, for what you end up with. 
Those little lanterns would look cute in Japanese fabrics too.  Here's a closeup view.
This represents all my sewing for the month.  I don't know about you, but I think the summer is rapidly evaporating.  I have been doing a lot of reading having just finished,
I highly recommend it.
I am off to do a little packing (and maybe sewing) as my daughter and I leave for  vacation on Monday.  We fly to Vienna passing through Paris {sigh}, board a small ship and cruise down the Danube and Rhine through Germany to Amsterdam and then back home. 
Thanks for visiting.

First I want to wish you a wonderful vacation - safe & fun!

I love your Joy Luck Schnibble. It's adorable! I'm really sorry you're Schnibbled out :-( We must enjoy what we're doing so maybe you just need a little change of pace. :-)

I just started mine as it has been one of those months!!!!! I was thinking that Asian fabrics would look wonderful in it too. I hope someone does it that way.
