IT'S DONE--


My Schnibbles for November is all done---yes!!!!  Here it is --

Oh dear--well--here is what I used on the backing--it was "one" of those pieces that you just seem to have to pick up--yet don't have any idea what you will use it on----

I have really loved working on this months quilt--have enjoyed these fresh looking colors!!!
NOW I DID TELL YOU that I had done something different on this one--so let's take a look at that--

I hope your computer shows what I did--instead of regular quilting on all those half square triangles I did 3 lazy daisy embroidery stitches in each one--then I did quilt the basket part and the rectangles etc!!

Here is another block with out the black arrows---I have named this quilt--
*******WILDFLOWER PICNIC*****!!!!!!!



I also got my ornament exchange gift made tonight and the card and it is already to go in the post in the morning!!!



Guess you all are waiting for the "BLUE CHRISTMAS TREE STORY"---of which I do not know yet know, if this story will have a happy ending or not??????

The tree I showed you yesterday belongs to my friend Mary--when she was at the hospital getting a blood transfusion on Tues--her one granddaughter went and got the blue ornaments and decorated the tree for her==so that when Mary got home she walked in and seen it--she has always wanted a blue tree!!!   WELL on Wed when I went down to get her her tea and seen the tree it was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT--and there are times this "chick" is in a hurry--and I seen that tree and I just had to go to the store and get me some blue ornaments and blue lights--I did already have the tree--had gotten it on sale 2 years ago or so--got me a ride to store and off we went---I came home with blue items--total $29.59--I am already "crazy" here spending that much on a few blue ornaments--but--I want a tree on the order of Mary's--I had also went up the street to our Country store and picked up a layaway as it was some things for decorating and as I wanted to decorate after turkey day I needed them--well--here is where I realize I am in trouble--on the way home I "realize" that I used the wrong check debit card--my money is in the other one--ok--don't panic, Di, get on the internet and transfer the funds from one account to the other--unfortunately I could not see where is had taken so I did it a second time--still not show up----only the next time I looked to be sure--I had 3--overdrafts at $30.00 each--total $90.00 dollars--so now with trying to keep up with the "jones" I am $129.59 in the hole for blue plastic ornaments--
OUCH---OUCH---OUCH!!!! ( now I did call the bank on Friday--they said they would take off the overdrafts---but bloggers--it;s still on there--and so this story continues.....
AND THE BIG MESSAGE HERE IS==IT DOES NOT PAY TO KEEP UP WITH THE "JONES"!!!!



Well--it's really late and I am really tired--so I need to put this body to bed--more tomorrow on some of the other "stories"!!!
Hugs, Di
Now if I only looked this "cute" when I sleep?????

Oh dear!!! I hope you get the bank sorted out soon. Sometimes this new high tech stuff is not all that helpful. I am sure it will turn out and the new blue will be worth it. The $30 part anyway. Love the Schnibbles. Your extra embroidery pretty daisey details are really nice and your backing is perfect. Don't you just love when that happens. Have fun decorating!!! L,A-

I'm thinking positive here. One bright note - you got BLUE ornaments!

I'm sure you'll be able to work the overdrafts out...banks and such are so slow, give it time. I've had hassles like this before and they're time-consuming but "workable" with patience.

And above all, I really like your Schnibbles. You say you liked working on this one and I have to admit, I did not.

My Christmas ornament is packaged and ready to send but the post doesn't open for 2 1/2 hours yet.

Oh the cost of a blue Christmas tree!! I hope the bank was able to straighten it all out for you without any extra charges. The Schnibbles quilt looks great. Love your little extra addition.
