It's Coming!

Before I post my April goals for the Charming Guys & Girls Club I need to share a little tidbit.

According to Martingale (aka That Patchwork Place) a long awaited book will be released on April 13. Which book??? "SCHNIBBLES times two" (aka the BIG Schnibble book) by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Take a minute or two to visit her blog to read about the book and some of the quilts featured. She got by with a little help from her friends! And, I helped (did you get an image of the little girl in the Shake & Bake commercial from oh so many years ago - yes I'm old - LOL)

She invited me to "play" - my BIG Schnibble assignment was "Imagine". Sometime I'll have to share my story about this quilt. :-)
I think it's going to be a hit so you want to make sure you own one.

Thank you for letting me share! I'll be back later to post my April goals - what to do, what to do? LOL

In Friendship!

That is so exciting, Congratulations! I am anxiously waiting for this book I have it sitting in a shopping cart already. I love Carries patterns, and I've used several and now a couple of them twice.

Joanne said...

Congratulations!!
Martingdale offered me a free book (I had found an error in one of their books) and I chose this book. Can't wait!!♥

Strlady said...

Love this book! I already have mine pre-ordered. I can't wait!
Many years ago I tested a few patterns for a book and was thrilled with the adventure. The opportunity to get my hands on a pattern no one else had was so exciting, even if no one knew I had it! LOL! It's like getting an Advance Readers copy of a bestselling author.

Sherri said...

Darlene B said...

Congratulations, Darlene! Beautiful quilt, as always! Too funny, though...just yesterday my husband was sweating and working hard to rake out the dead grass in our yard. I just bent over now and again to help pick up the piles. I told him I felt like the little girl in the old Shake & Bake commercials, because I could say that "I helped!" (You have to have the southern drawl to get the full effect, though.) ;) dsb448@att.net

Micki said...
