what, another new project? you'd be wrong...this time anyway. i have seen these little baskets appliqued all over blogland and they are sooo cute! i had to try one. i found the pattern free on the internet and copied it to the right size for this 6" block of shirtings, of which i have a huge stack i got in a swap. i do like them a lot and of course i have plenty of fabric for a gazillion of them, but for now it was just a "try and see" block. i'm busy quilting on my amish pinwheel, doing a bit of cross-stitch and applique and for a machine project, it's the amish ocean waves flimsy. **** of course were are in the throes of real summer here in lobster-land, though it has been a cool week here in lake woebegone east. have a few fun things planned for the summer so far and thinking ahead (and making those lists) for my october retreat, which will be here far too soon. worse than that, i know it'll go by even faster than that. now for a book and bed, tomorrow is another day!
