Doc!

 I didn't think I liked this Schnibble.  But after seeing so many Docs around blogland it grew on me.  I thought it was too complicated and I wouldn't be able to make it.
 I appreciate folks who showed how to lay it out before sewing.
 It sure helped to keep checking as I went along. 
 Isn't it cool how it goes together?  I can't get over how it works.








I really needed a runner for Gma's china hutch and I definitely wanted one for summer!  So here is my RWB Doc Schnibble!  It is mostly Jo Morton fabrics with one or two scraps of other fabric.


pjs

Made two sets of pjs for the boyos.  Two fish and two tools.  They are a little short for Red-his legs grew too fast!  So now I must remember to buy 2.5 yards of fabric if I want to make them each a pair.

Magpie and I made this for my mother for Mother's Day.  I have enough material to make another one for me!

In a jam

Seven pounds of strawberry jam.  I had lots of help from the short people which has manifested itself in the jam not setting well.  I tried two different pectins- Sure Jell and Bell's Instant. Oh well, the boyos eat jam straight out of the jar and love to put it on yogurt.  Runny jam is still jam to them!

Need to remember 1.5 lbs of strawberries equals one quart!

Finally!

 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
