Plan A, B, and C!!!

Really big, longgggg sigh...  

I took my sewing machine
 in to the shop
on Sunday for the annual
cleaning and adjusting.
I was soooo hoping to get a call
late this afternoon that it was all done
and ready to be picked up.
Another reallllly bigggg sigh...
no call, so it's not ready.

On the other hand, today was Bee day!

And boy can Lorraine cook!!
Listen to this menu-
coffee and homemade coffee cake
(with fresh peach and
raspberry streusel topping)
then for lunch-
homemade chicken salad
(with fresh peaches, nuts, lettuce and basil)
fresh canteloupe and
homemade peach muffins
and for dessert-
homemade key lime pie

So, of course, we ate and chatted
and ate and chatted
 and ate and chatted...
and did a bit of cutting
and sewing, too!
I sewed down the binding on my Plan C
the August Schnibbles!

I used 2 charm packs from the
Mary Engelbreit fabric line
Attitude Girls from Moda.

I used a vintage
Mary Engelbreit
print from my stash
for the backing.

I think this might just be my
favorite Schnibbles yet!!
