I've got a little work to do and a quilt to show too.



Even though this month's Schnibbles project was a quick one, I'm still working on it!



I'm hoping to get these little blocks finished and put together by tomorrow.  I should be able to get it done. 

The potato soup for dinner is in the crock pot and the only thing on the schedule for tonight is the junior high soccer game........Wow, was it cold at last night's game!  That warm potato soup should hit the spot after the game tonight!





I'm entering my favorite Christmas quilt in the 2012 Christmas Quilt Show.  It's one I made a few years back by combining a few Schnibbles quilt patterns and adding my own twist.







I went a little crazy with the quilting and I made some candy canes in the border, swirls of snow all around, and I added some mugs of hot chocolate too.




This quilt is one of my favorites ever so it was hard for me to pick out a just few pictures.  As you can see I just decided to post more than a few!













Grab a mug of hot chocolate for yourself, or a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha.....that's what I'm drinking way too much of right now......and look at some wonderful quilts in the 2012 Christmas Quilt Show. 

It might not be too late to add one of yours!

And thanks so much for the helpful comments about blogger storage issues! I knew I could count on you for help!  


See you tomorrow!

Lovely schnibbles. I plan to look at their books in the New Year when I am allowed to open them. (Secret present which I know nothing about of course. wink)
