Time passed and with the dawning of a new year Sherri and Sinta introduced Another year of Schnibbles, but still no patterns were to be found in the land of ice and snow. One day they decided that no matter how dangerous, they were going to venture out to lands unknown and try to hunt down the famous Schnibbles. After travelling many many miles they found someone who was going to help them capture the shy and elusive Schnibbles
...and although it took many moons to actually achieve success the Schnibbles quietly found their way to the land of ice and snow. At first glance this particular species of Schnibbles did not seem to be particularly enticing to the lady quilters however the quilters were so excited to finally have all the tools needed to be able to take part in the coveted quilt along they wasted no time in getting started.
Lady Wendy's prince was to be away in a far off land for several days and so she invited the Dutchess Glenda and Marchionness Sue and together they made plans to gather all that was needed and embark on a quilting adventure. The ladies arrived at the home of Lady W's bearing gifts of food and flowers in honour of the celebration.
(unfortunately the photographer arrived too late to capture a shot of the yummy maple crusted walnuts and so all that is left to show you are crumbs)
Fabrics were chosen and the sound of laughter and sewing machines was to be heard in the Manor for many hours.
After much fun, food and friendship the Lady quilters had 2 Schnibbles trophy banners to proudly display in the Kingdom of Ice and Snow. ( ** It must be noted here that although this species of Schnibbles would not have been a first choice to the lady quilters, both quilters were so pleased with the final results that it has been rumoured that they may have another planned for a later date!)
T for Triumphant!
Schnibbles Bibelot...Long may they reign!
I am told that over time it is expected that the land of ice and snow will evolve to a beautiful country where birds will sing, flowers will bloom and the rare Schnibbles will be found in every hamlet and the quilters will stitch happily ever after.
(Hey! This is a fairy tale and a lady can always dream!)
