~January Schnibble~

Hello, everyone!  Finally got back into the sewing room after a month's hiatus!  My daughter had a month long Christmas break and I did not want to miss spending time with her so I ended up not sewing a stitch.  I just finished up my Schnibbles quilt top for January, Madeline.  Kind of reminds me of Peach Sorbet, but then again I have food on the brain these days as I am trying to lose about five pounds put on this summer in Russia.

All the fabric is from my stash, a goal I hope to stick to this year.  I just love that peachy-pink and how it turned out.

Here's another look during a brief interlude of sun, we've had such lousy weather this winter.

My favorite block with that luscious paisley that can't decide if it's a peach or a yellow.   I think this was my favorite Schnibbles pattern so far although I could have done without all the errata.

Another look, remember you can click the pics to enlarge them.  I am loving the new Blogger editor, I cannot remember who told me about it, but thank you again!

Thought I'd share a picture of my amaryllis, I picked up the bulb at Target right before Thanksgiving and it finally bloomed, two stalks each with four flowers. 
I'm a little late but I'll sign off with good wishes for the New Year and a favorite Swedish proverb :::
~ Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less, breathe more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours. ~
Thanks for stopping by...

Such pretty colors and fabrics in your Schnibbles this month. I, too, love the pattern, but I made so many wrong cuts as I was putting it together.

The amaryllis is beautiful. I love how quickly they grow.

Yes, the new blogger is so much better for picture loading, etc.
