July Schnibble DONE!!

This month we got to choose whichever Schnibble we wanted to make!  I LOVE that!!  Smile

I had a stack of Schnibble patterns I had bought over time but not yet made, so I went through them and selected “McGuffey”.

I used two charm packs of Lila Tueller’s  super fun, bright, and cute  “Spirit”collection.

I chose them because the colors are perfect for a dear friend, so it will be a Christmas present!

Yogi seemed to enjoy making McGuffey, too!!

  13. Wonderful gift - I so love seeing the laid- back charm of Yogi pictures. Always reminds me of my little sewing buddy, Brady - "Let's Go Sew" was all it took and he always beat there. Judy
