The Last Schnibble for 2012

I made the last Schnibble “Morsel” this past week.  I used this Moda Candy Bar.

I loved the pattern, of course!!

And I used some of the Moda twill tape “ribbons” that come on jelly rolls for the trim!!  Cute, huh?

S T R E S S E D

If only my husband had told me back in the summer or even in the fall that we would be putting our house up for sale in the week before Christmas…

DSCN3510

Needless to say, the last 3 weeks have been a tad stressful.  All I’ve done for the last three weeks is clean and clean out an throw out and reorganize and repair…while also trying to sew up Christmas presents.  If I had known back a few months ago, I could have made the gifts then…sigh…

DSCN3516

All the cleaning and lifting has thrown my back out and am feeling some sciatica… so not sleeping at night either…sigh

DSCN3441

(Someone obviously has NO PROBLEM sleeping anywhere at anytime!!)

DSCN3467

But I do have some stuff to show you…  my list of things made in November and December has grown… but have not been able to show them to you as many are gifts to people who read my blog… 

DSCN3436

This is a jelly roll quilt for someone very dear.

DSCN3437

I used this technique to make it! 

DSCN3435

A really fun system!!

DSCN3444

I finished a UFO as a gift for my newly married son and his wife!

DSC_5262

They like VERY modern d├ęcor, so thought it would be a good fit for them. 

DSCN3445

They had their first party as a married couple last weekend, so I gave it to them early so they could use it for Christmas decorating.

DSCN3448

I remembered that there was one monthly Schnibble this year that I didn’t make…  the one from February called “i.s.t.h.”.

DSCN3521

So I made it up with a few changes to make it more to my liking…

DSCN3522

It’s a gift, too!  YAY!!

DSCN3405

I made a little candle mat from a kit I’ve had for a while.

DSCN3408

It’s tiny but cute!!

And last week, we had our master bedroom repainted a lovely perwinkle color, so I made a new king sized quilt.

quilt 1

And a matching bedskirt and three window valances, and to king sized pillow shams and a little matching throw pillow!!

The sign went up out in the front yard this morning…so it’s feeling real!!  Wish me patience and luck in this selling process… because of Yogi, we are only showing it by appointment.  So, when I get a call, I have to rush around and get the house in “staged” order, grab Yogi, jump in the car and drive out of sight around the block until they come and go!!  PLUSSSS, I’ve got my family from Florida coming in 2 days after Christmas…

aunt

I can’t wait to see them!!!  Just wish all the other stuff wasn’t going on right now!

DSCN3465

Soooo, keep your fingers crossed for us, that it sells quickly and easily, OK??

DSCN2245

I wonder how Yogi will adapt to a new house…  two actually, because we’ll have to move into a temporary place or apartment until the new house is built… they say it will take about 6 months!!  UGH!!
