Ask Jo from Jo's Country Junction

Judith asked:
I really liked your Sunday Schnibble quilt. Are her patterns still available?

SundayBest-F

This is her Schnibbles Times Two book.

This is her book Another Bite of Schnibbles.

There are more of her books available that are not Schnibbles.  This is my favorite.  For me it’s a must have in my library.  Kelli has made several of the quilts in here.  The book is Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites.  The includes a lot of the last patterns she put out before she went on and started working at Moda.


She is a real talent.

The next comment came ...

Ask Jo: How I get so much done from Jo's Country Junction

The question I get the very most often is how I get so much done.  Seriously..the answer is I try.   There’s more to it than that but that’s the main response.  I try to get a lot done.

I’ll show you a typical day around here.  This was a week day.  My alarm went off at 5:35am like it always does but this day I hit the snooze.  I don’t often do that.  In fact, I hit it twice.  I wasn’t out of bed until 5:55am.  I am not big on makeup ...
