Plan C Schnibbles

 I've got my August Schnibbles done and out of the way. I can't decide if I like the border, wish it was the lighter colour, or like it as it is. I change my mind eveytime I look at it.
I used Old Primrose Inn for the fabric and again just used one of the colours for the background.

This one I could not get good colours in a picture on thsi one and have no idea why.

  I'm having a hard time getting motivated for the applique projects I have one the go. I have a Le Jardin block to do and the applique for my Make Life tumbler quilt all cut out and ready to be glue basted. And have for over a week.

 And because I'm me I have a project not due until November almost finished and the one that is scheduled for August either 1/4 done or not at all depending on which one is supposed to go up. And the not at all one? Still waiting on the fabric. Sigh.

Today was Little Bit's last soccer game for the year and she did the best she's done all year! It was a great deal of fun and the perfect weather.

Today would also have been my son's 5th birthday. We took flowers and a balloon to the cemetery like we've done every year. Little Bit remembered that when we told her it was Everette's birthday.

Hey Cara, I really like the colors of your Schnibbles...it matches your blog side bar ;-) Great photo of Little Bit. Looks like she is having a good time. Sending hugs your way this sad anniversary day.

Feeling your pain today. After my daughter died, I refused to let her birthday be a sad day. We bake a cake. And then we enjoy it! Prayers of comfort for your family.

How fun--I miss being a soccer mom so much! I love your Plan C. You are just busy whipping things out! I had my lunchtime from work earlier this week at the cemetary by my friends daughters site. It was nice to sit and be quiet, with her. Blessings.
