This story is about some 'silly' geese and their 'pilot'!!!

When the 'pilot' got out of bed this morning--
she thought--
wait a minute--those 'strips' of geese are longer than 5 inches--
so she popped into the workroom and measured one strip--
sure enough they were over 7 inches long!!!!
Now she is asking herself--how can you cut 5 inch strips from charm blocks, when the 'flock' of geese measures over 7 inches!!!!

So out comes the directions to the Schnibbles pattern--
and this 'stupid' 'silly' pilot, who must hate to read--
discovers that there is only suppose to be '3' geese

 to a flock--not '4'!!!!!!

Soooo--out comes that 'seam' rippin frog--and away we go--
dividing up the flock--you should of hear the 'screeching' that went with it--
but finally the geese settled  down--and we got some work done---

And then 'Sweet' Pink Betty really got  a work out--
and after a few hours of 'sweet' talkin the geese--
we came out of the sewing room with--
some silly flying geese---
and here they are--
only this pilot is still  shaking her head--


these poor stupid geese still don't know which way to fly---

North, South, East or West!!!!!!!

Hugs, Di and---

that Miss Gracie!!!!

Love your geese quilt and really enjoyed your story. I noticed the 4- geese units yesterday but thought you were purposely changing the pattern a little. Well done!

I love your flying geese, both of them. Can you please tell me what is the size of the flying geese ? They seem so small.

Your Schnibble is flying right! Pretty fabrics! I was hoping to get this month's done but it wasn't to be. I'll be looking forward to May's selection. Happy stitching-

How funny!!! We all do silly things sometimes! I guess you need to consult your co-pilot (Miss Gracie) next time you decide to do some complicated fabric math LOL!!!! The quilt turned out very cute!!!!
