I had a little time in the sewing room this weekend and was able to finish up another basket block and prep two more.
I am absolutely loving this project! These baskets are so much fun to put together and I am very happy with how they are turning out. I really want to have this one finished for the quilt show. So far I've finished 3 blocks...only 17 more to go! I'm planning to work on another while sitting through a 3 hour conference call today. It sounds wrong, I know...but I am completely amazed at how much better I listen to calls if I stitch during them! It prevents me from multi-tasking with other work and I actually pay attention. If the people on the other end of the line only knew!
I am also working on a new rug project - hopefully one I can knock out quickly before my next workshop in June. This is Linda Pietz's Sauder Village pattern.
It's a very fun pattern and I am particularly enjoying doing the color
planning as I go rather than thinking it through in advance. It
probably isn't the smartest approach, but hopefully it will all come
together in the end!
