On the 4th of July, Americans celebrate the anniversary of the country's beginning and the freedoms we enjoy. On July 3rd, however, I celebrate the anniversary of my personal freedom--from smoking and addiction to cigarettes! Woo-hoo! It's been four years now, and I have to say that after those first five days, it's been pretty easy so far. If you're interested in reading about my smoking (and quitting) history, you can find it HERE.
Did you see that this month's Schnibbles pattern (from Sinta's and Sherri's A Year of [Vintage] Schnibbles) is Lincoln? Sinta's very pretty version can be found HERE. I thought while I was thinking about it that I'd show you the Lincoln Schnibbles I made a few years ago--
I made it using leftover scraps from my Halloween 1904 quilt. Here's a photo that shows a bit of both quilts--
I plan to make it again this month, unless I run out of time, but I'm leaning toward making a baby quilt from the pattern this time--just to have on hand in case I need one. How about you? Will you join the Schnibbles parade this month? I hope you do!
