I am alive...and sewing!!

 I'm starting to feel better, or I was on Sunday. Monday hit and so did a repeat. Today I am feeling some better again so hopefully it holds. Especially since I go for another lidocaine infusion Thursday! Hopefully this one lasts more then the 4 days the last one did.
 I got tired of my old blog background so it was time to mix it up. What do you think?

The pattern for this month's Schnibble actually came today! And do you want to know why it came today and not a week from now?
Because one of the awesome ladies in blogland emailed me the cutting directions so I could get cutting while Little Bit was away.

I also managed to get the blocks sewn together, same with the rows! I have made a little design change. Here a sneak peak.

HA! Though I was actually going to show you? Not until it's done and I know if I like it or not.
 I used Blush and a white on white I had in my stash. I personally thinks it looks great. I was able to leave out all of the whites from the pack. But have no fear! I will use them...and probably in this quilt. I'm considering making it a bit bigger, though this one is a nicer size at 37 square. DH's other younger brother's wife is expecting, and they should find out March 1st if it's a girl or boy. If it's a girl this quilt will be finished up for her. If not then Blushing Sunday will be my Valentine's Day quilt. Yes I know love day is past but hey I'm not really a deadline type girl.

 The lovely reliable Quilt Taffy girls also sent me a little yardage for Mother Goose and a green from Authentic I plan to use with Make Life... Now I just have to figure out patterns lol. Yes, most likely they will be Schnibbles!

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. I was beginning to get worried! Your Schnibbles looks great! It reminds me of the machine pieced tie blocks we did many years ago. Can't wait to see what you are keeping a secret! Hope all goes well on Thursday. Pain is no fun!
