Schnibbles, March Christmas Gift and A Fun Getaway!

 026 Under the wire….that’s kind of how the whole month of March has felt like to me!!  Happily I finished this months Schnibbles project….Bibelot runner style!!  This was really fun and fast to make…good thing for me :-)! 

Here we are …..month three of Christmas Through The Year.  Co hosting with christmasthroughtheyearbuttonDarlene has been WONDERFUL!!!  She definitely carried the ball this month.  Darlene, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  I squeaked out my gifties for this 027month….Stay Put Kitchen Towels.  I used the tutorial from Mary at Pin.Sew.Press.    Talk about a fast project…so if you are still wanting to get a gift done you have plenty of time!  Darlene will have Mr. Linky up tomorrow and everyone who links up with their Christmas project for March, has a chance to win a wonderful runner made by Darlene.  This coming Monday I will have some more tutes to share!

We had a wonderful week away with our home on wheels.  Camping in Morro Bay with family…so fun and very relaxing.  We got to visit some old 007friends (hey look Harold they are back taking our picture!!!).

There was a bit of time for some hand work006

…..yoyo’s for a future Christmas project….009

 

 

and three finishes!!!!!  These were started 3 or 4 years ago…..all quilted and neatly tucked away in my sewing closet!!!  Why I didn’t finish the binding is a mystery to me…but YIPEE they are done and will go on my Sew It’s Finished list.

I think my MOJO is making a slow comeback.  Fingers crossed it stays.  Wishing you all a very happy weekend!

Lots of good finishes this month. I really like the word quilts that you finished off. They are way too pretty to be in a cupboard. Your trip sounds great. Love the seals.

Wonderful results. The runner is very cute, so are the 'stay put' towels. The word quilts are gorgeous, so glad they are now out and about in the world. My crafty mojo has been hiding its little self too, so hopefully April will be a more fulfulling crafty month for you.

Hi Cheryl, nice to hear from you. Camping on the beach sounds sooo wonderful. You got a lot of things done for March, good for you. Are you planning on making a yo-yo Christmas tree, one of those ones where you pin the yo-yo's to a styrofoam cone? I just posted my name for Christmas Through the Year on Darlene's blog.

I am organically from CA and when I was a child we used to camp at Morro Bay. I was there last May and saw the big rock again.

That is a great runner, Cheryl, it doesn't look fast, but it's lovely and I'll take your word for it! The towels are just too cute, good job on finishing, those AND the word quilts - love those - they made me smile!
