Fabric Basket

I finally managed to get one of these little fabric baskets (somewhat) together.  :D  They are the cutest things ever!!  Thank you, Lisa, for the awesome tutorial.  Dawn (June 19, 2011 post) and Janet (June 16, 2011 post) have made some really cute ones.  Go have a look.

So Go Figure...





Why Can't I Post Photos?

I've tried for two days now to post photos--alas, Blogger just will not cooperate. :?  I'm caught up on the blocks for Simple Things Quilt Along.  Yeaaa!  Maybe even a tad ahead :) as I got carried away making the 4-patch/cream blocks and made extra.  I had a he8888ck of a time getting the last four star blocks together.  Who knows why!  So now I have eight of the 4-patch/cream AND eight of the stars!  :D

I think I figured out why I don't sew much---cuz I just am lousy at spelling 'accurate'! let alone sewing anywhere near 'accurate' !!  :/

Friday Night (Sew-IN?)

 These little hummers have absolutely nothing to do with sewing  :8  I just felt like sharing their photos. 

I do believe this little fella below was having a 'bad hair day'.  :D  I am thinking that I'm going to spend this evening doing some sewing. 

I picked out parts of the first border for the Kim Diehl piece, but have not had time to work on it since I posted the photo of it.  :/  I did pull out another UFO (imagine that--ANOTHER one) that was a large block of unfinished applique and have been playing with it a bit after dinner.  I'm still in the 'wanna sew' mood---and there are at least two sew-alongs that have already started, and that I would like to do.  :/  But I'm slower than molasses, and that's AFTER I finally decide on what fabrics to use....Hope everyone is gearing up for a great weekend.

Ancient UFO Ghost From the Past

Finished the applique day before yesterday, and set the four blocks together this morning.  Now I'm ready to choose the fabrics for the first border.  This is a Kim Diehl pattern that I started ages ago.  I'm back in the 'wanna sew NOW' mode, so I'll run with it as long as the urge lasts.  :)
