August Schnibbles!


How are you doing?  WOW this has been a really busy month -- and it was supposed to be quiet and I was going to get lots done, well that plan FLEW out the window!  The Garden Center I work at was going to close until Sept 8th and I was really unsure what was going on with it, it has not been making money and next year they will be tearing up the road in front of it during the spring/early summer - traditionally a busy time for the garden center.  SO I thought maybe I should look for a job, I usually do look in the the winter and temp or do something, but a real full time year around job is hard to come by.  So I applied for a couple of jobs I found on Craigs list and GUESS WHAT?!?!?  I got a new job!  I work for a large landscape company and I handle the bids for the company -- very interesting and busy job.  I started on the 22nd.  Great news, I work full time March 1 - Dec 1 and Dec 1 - Feb 28 I work 4 days a week, perfect since Dear Hubby is off in the winter, this way we can do on little get-a-ways and stuff.  The hours are perfect too, 7 - 3:30 -- I am really very  happy to have found a job and the news gets even better when I talked to the owner of the garden center, he told me after the end of Sept it will be closing -- not enough business and the traffic issue is just too much.  So I am very happy that this all turned out good.

SO I did have my Schnibble top done early in the month and was thinking about quilting it later in the month...and as you guessed it - later never to here - so here is my Schnibble Dimestore version all done, it just needs to be quilted.  Lucky for me I did Christmas colors so I do have some time LOL!

Dear Hubby has a cold so with the rain coming in this weekend, looks like a good weekend to get some things accomplished!
Waving to all the parade people!!
Happy stitches and thanks for stopping!

Your Dimestore quilt turned out so pretty. It's going to be nice for you to decorate this Christmas. I did mine in Fall colors, That's awesome that you found a job.

Congratulations on getting a new job! It sounds like everything turned out great for you! Your Dimestore is lovely! I love the fabric you used for the cornerstones. It makes the quilt pop!

Congrats on job! Love the new quilt. Did you ever get the snow-covered house and gingerbread man patterns up? Can't seem to find them!
